ROSSARI series Ponte Giulio
We talked a lot about PONTEGIULIO (a leading manufacturer of bathroom articles for the elderly or those with mobility difficulties) in the post: “The healthcare company for the disabled, elderly, children and communities
“. In that very article, we have already presented the ROSSARI vase.
It is the company’s most popular series. Sanitary fittings that have opened up a new formal path. Used in many private and public bathrooms for their versatility and practicality. Long in depth and available in different heights. With an opening at the front, with or without the bidet function, they are, mainly the toilet, placed in many bathrooms of public establishments that are required by law (Ministerial Decree no. 236, art 8.1.6 of 14 June 1989) to make a bathroom available to the customers of the establishment that can be used by anyone.
However, we also find them in many bathrooms of private homes. Its elongated oval shape ending in two protruding fins at the end make it a very recognisable shape. Important dimensions (the toilet measures 60 cm in depth!), offered by the company in three different heights: 45, 47 and even 50, to be as versatile as possible in the daily use of the person who has it in the bathroom. And also with the possibility of having it with or without a front opening and consequently a built-in bidet function (a small water spout is inserted in the rim).
What does the Rossari disabled toilet seat cover from PonteGiulio looks like?
Now let’s look at the Rossari toilet seat cover, which you can also find in the Sintesibagno catalogue. The dedicated shape you see in the picture on the right is as special as the toilet. Given the large size of the toilet seat, it measures a good 51/52 cm. Since the toilet seat is offered both with and without front opening, there are two toilet seat covers that you can find: Rossari toilet seat cover closed at the following link [ Clik HERE

MAIA series Ceramica Senesi and Dolomite
A historical company in the industry such as Dolomite could only be among the first to propose a sanitary fitting for disabled or elderly people. A very wide toilet, at 39 cm wide it is among the widest in its category, 10 cm higher than standard toilets, and its front opening makes it perfectly suited to “comfort and convenience” in use.
t is often found in public facility bathrooms. We believe the shape was first presented by Ceramica Senesi, which then joined the Dolomite group and took over the mould and continued production. A very peculiar thing in case you want to buy the replacement toilet seat is that depending on the production batch (whether Dolomite or Senesi), even though they are the same toilet bowl from a formal point of view, the centre distance of the toilet seat changes: in the case of MAIA Dolomite it will be 11.5/12 cm, while in the case of MAIA Senesi ceramics it will be 16/16.5 cm.

VERSO COMFORT series Ceramica Catalano
Ceramica Catalano is a ceramic company in the Civita Castellana district founded in 1967.
Among the absolute protagonists of the international bathroom furniture market. From their web site
we discover that: “Catalano, founded in 1967 and located in Fabrica di Roma, is today the leading Italian company in the ceramic tile sector for bathroom furnishings, a name that is synonymous with the highest quality unique design, solid and highly innovative industrial culture, which combines a high degree of automation with an irreplaceable craftsmanship knowledge, cultivated on the territory for generations.The company’s fifty-year history has allowed it to develop a technological know-how, constantly evolving and highly specialised. The company’s production philosophy has always been aimed at all-Italian quality, a true moral commitment: Catalano, in fact, invests and produces only in Italy, to guarantee a standard of excellence that cannot be imitated. The ‘Made in Italy’ label is for Catalano synonymous with excellence, reliability, ingenuity and innovation.”
As for many other series presented by the company, see the post: “ZERO series by Catalano
” this ceramic company has always been able to distinguish itself from the competition with its stylistic lines.
Even in this area of community/disabled sanitary ware, the company has been able to distinguish itself with forms that we can also say are design-oriented. In the early 2000s it presented the system: VERSOCOMFORT.
A design consisting of a 70 cm washbasin shaped to be easily used even by wheelchair users, also available with a manual height adjustment mechanism. And from both floor-standing and wall-hung sanitary ware. The toilet in the wall-hung version is, as required by the relevant regulations, a full 70 cm deep. The two floor-standing sanitary fittings, WC and bidet, are an impressive 48 cm high.
Seen from above, these toilets have a very clean and refined oval line. They unfortunately went out of production a few years ago and initially it was not possible to find the perfect toilet seat cover, also because of their large size. Finally the Sintesibagno team had a thermoset product made like the old original, which you can also find at the following LINK [ Clik HERE
