For more than 60 years, Caroma has helped architects, designers and specifiers create the perfect bathroom. As Australia’s leading bathroom brand, Caroma has managed to strike a fine balance between stunning aesthetics and sustainable performance to become the nation’s foremost designer, manufacturer, importer and distributor of domestic and commercial sanitaryware and bathroom products.
Caroma has for long offered a strong local presence in bathroom manufacturing – and indeed has become a market leader through innovative solutions, commitment to sustainability, and much more.
Sustainability at Work
With an ongoing focus to developing the latest water-saving technology, many see Caroma as the future’s answer to sustainable sanitaryware. Not to forget, of course, that Caroma was the first to invent the world’s first dual flush toilet system (the classic half flush and full flush). Since then, the company has always continued to develop world class toilet suits, urinals and tapware that touch the earth lightly.
Caroma’s award-winning Smartflush® technology has developed over a decade to always set the benchmark in toilet suite innovation. Smartflush® systems have proven to save up to 35,000 litres of water a year (as opposed to standard 11L single flush systems), in a water saving toilet suite with outstanding performance and alluring aesthetics.
Awards and Accolades
Caroma has always been recognized over the years by a multitude of industry bodies and awards. Here is a snapshot of a recent few:
2009 Australian Design Award - Caroma Invisi Series II Toilet Suite: the toilet took out the revered 2009 Australian Design Award for its unique design and innovation in the Housing and Building Category. The Invisi Series II surpassed all other in-wall systems for its water saving technology, easy installation and appeal to both the commercial and domestic market.
2007 Australian Design Award - Caroma H2Zero™ Cube Urinal: the urinal won the inaugural Award for Excellence in Sustainable Design at the Australian Design Awards out of a shortlist of 32 entries. The Caroma H2Zero™ Cube Urinal was singled out for its breakthrough design that distinguished itself as the world’s first truly viable and sustainable waterless urinal. The H2Zero™ Cube Urinal uses cartridge technology with a one-way, airtight valve to seal the urinal from the drainage system - eliminating the need for chemical based seals used traditionally with waterless urinals. The urinal also took out the Australian Design Award for Excellence in Australian Design in the Housing and Building category and was nominated for Australian Design Award of the year.
