Clos-o-Mat is 'user-friendly' – all functions, flushing, washing and drying are initiated by one simple action – press for flush and wash, release for drying. Uniquely flushing and washing are simultaneous, thereby reducing infection risk.

Total Hygiene offers a manufacturers approved installation service either in-house or by appointed quality installers.

It can also be installed by a competent plumber/electrician. All installations on the UK mainland are commissioned by the company's own engineers.

The Clos-o-Mat can be installed and connected to a Macerator if required and if space allows.

For difficult service conditions or restricted locations a no-obligation survey visit is recommended. Full guidance is given in our installation manual.

Total Hygiene employs a nationwide team of in-house Clos-o-Mat trained service engineers. These specialists ensure the product works correctly and continues to give satisfactory service. A service contract is offered to commence after the 12 months guarantee period has expired.

A comprehensive range of customising options is available, such as raising plinths, touch sensitive switches, alternative douche assembles, toilet lifters, "care" seats, shower chair use support systems.

Survey visits are recommended if considering using a Clos-o-Mat in conjunction with a shower chair, toilet lifter or if a WC support system is envisaged. See leaflet designated for specific options or technical advice.

Clos-o-Mat demonstration units are installed in many Independent Living Centres – some are mobile units only – others are available for "live trial!" Many of our distributors too have demonstration units available.

We also offer a "free" on site demonstration service on UK mainland.

You can purchase direct from us – the manufacturer – or from one of our appointed distributors – list available on request.

The Company offers a full design service to the whole caring team: Architect or Surveyor, Special Needs Adviser, Occupational Therapist, Carer or End user. Our on site survey and demonstration service is entirely without obligation. With Total Hygiene/ Clos-o-Mat the specifier can be sure of:




The Palma Vita is WRAS approved and meets the requirements of UK Water Regulations. It can be specified for general bathroom use.

Clos-o-Mat are the inventors of the shower toilet/automatic WC. The company was first in the field and is still the No.1 choice. The Company products are the result of continuous research and improvements. They are backed by 40 years experience in marketing automatic WC/shower toilets. The product is made in a dedicated assembly plant in Stretford, Manchester. There are over 40,000 Clos-o-Mat units in the UK and over 100,000 units worldwide.

Several cheap ‘bolt-on’ bidet attachments are now available on the market. When considering specification we would advise you to:

  • Compare effectiveness of basic functions. Is flush separate? A hygiene/infection risk. Are wash/dry functions really effective?
  • Clos-o-Mat gives the most effective cleansing and drying available. Beware of ‘copies’ that are ineffective or inefficient. Clos-o-Mat ‘cleans and dries’ others ‘spray and blow’

  • Check compliance with water regulations

  • Check if the unit can be seen or demonstrated

  • Ask what after sales service is available – vital in such a specialised product

Shower toilets vary from a simple accessory that bolts onto the existing conventional toilet through to state-of-the-art purpose designed automatic WC suites that incorporate flushing, washing and drying facilities in one unit. If efficient, the washing and drying facilities eliminate the need to use toilet paper, reducing hand, body, appliance contact and infection risk.

In Japan and the Far East, shower toilets are widely accepted as standard bathroom equipment due to the personal hygiene benefits. In the UK they were introduced originally for use by disabled people only but the product will provide improved levels of hygiene for all, irrespective of any special needs (UK mainland).

Ensure you specify the best available!
