The Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita automatic WC sets the standard for wash & dry toilets, providing simultaneous flushing and washing with the addition of warm air drying.

The Palma Vita is user friendly for individuals with a physical or learning disability, and can be used by able and disabled people alike. Its in-built douching and drying is operated on demand by pressing and releasing the elbow pad, improving cleanliness and hygiene for all users, cleaning with water, not paper, which can reduce the risk of infection.

The Palma Vita has an unrivalled, brand-leading, half century record of delivering a total hygiene solution for in and out of the home.

Please note that a wall-hung version is available in the Lima Vita. Please contact our office for further details: 0800 374 076

The Infill Panel has been designed to aid installations where pipe-work inhibits the Palma Vita from being located against the wall. It is also to be used in conjunction with an extended douche arm, where channelling the rear wall is not an option. The Infill Panel is available in thickness sizes 25mm, 50mm & 75mm. The infill panel is 100mm taller than the Palma Vita. It must be cut from the bottom to suit finished toilet height.


With the ability to fold away independently of each other these slimline support arms provide close proximity support, whilst looking clean and smart. Their elliptical shape offers an 'easy to hold' profile making getting on and off the toilet a much easier task. Covered in a 'warm feel' coating these robust metal arms provide safety and comfort all year round, and are ideal for installations where wall construction is poor.

What Cost Independence?

How many people need a home care visit, simply to help them with toileting?

And According to the Bladder & Bowel Foundation, incontinence/ bladder & bowel issues are the second most common reason for older people to enter residential care.

What if someone could stay in their home, and have the facility to go the toilet when they want, without the indignity- and cost- of someone helping them, wiping you clean…?

The Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita wash & dry toilet, and/or Aerolet toilet lift would help achieve that.

Click on the link below to run the care cost calculator and put a price on toilet independence (base figures on 2 x toilet trips/day, requiring 2 x care workers, for 15 minutes each trip)….
