A wall hung toilet is simply a toilet that is attached to the wall instead of the floor. The toilet’s cistern is hidden behind the wall. Because of this, the toilet’s flushing system is often a flush plate on the wall, rather than a button on the cistern tank for a close couple toilet. The toilet has the appearance of hovering because it is fixed and suspended from the wall.
A wall hung toilet pan works just like any other toilet, it’s just that the basic components are slightly rearranged. The cistern is held within a metal frame within the wall instead of being attached at the top of the pan. Nevertheless, the cisterns pipes still connect to the pan, just in the gap hidden by the pan’s affixture to the wall.
The pan is affixed to the frame by being bolted to threaded screws that make use of a multi-point system to spread the weight of the pan and user over a larger, manageable surface area.
