Ideal Standard’s new Ceraflex® range offers a high standard in bathroom and kitchen fittings. Made in Germany, the Firmaflow™ ceramic disc cartridge of the innovative Ceraflex® range is robust and resistant – to an unprecedented industry levels. Ideal Standard invented the ceramic cartridge in 1969 and has refined it throughout generations to reach optimal reliability and durability.

Ceraflex® bathroom and kitchen taps are highly efficient and cost-effective. Proven Ceraflex® CLICK technology limits water consumption with a mechanical stop that limits water flow to 50%. The range also comes with Ideal Standard’s BlueStart technology and the EasyFix system.
The new Ceraflex® series of taps is available as an aesthetic and efficient addition to sinks, basins, bidets, baths and showers. It comes in deck, wall mounted and built-in configurations, to suit all needs. Ceraflex® taps combine perfectly with Ideal Standard’s ranges of ceramics.
Infection control: Markwik & Ceraplus 2.0
The new Markwik 21 and Contour 21 clinical basin, tap and fitting ranges offer unprecedented hygiene innovation and bacterial prevention.
The Contour 21 clinical basin features advanced drainage to combat water pooling, which is a source of bacterial growth in clinical, back-outlet basins.The Contour 21’s outer surfaces feature thinner, more angular rims, steeper slopes and a smaller back area—all designed to avoid water pooling and facilitate easy cleaning. The new HydroFin is an innovative fin to the base of the Contour 21, which deflects splashing and reduces it by nearly 100%.
Both the Contour 21 and Markwik 21 range include the integral SmartGuard antimicrobial additive technology, which reduces the threat of cross-contamination and helps keep surfaces clean and hygienic across their lifetime.
Like the Contour 21, the new Markwik 21 range also features a very low static water volume, and boast material and simplified internal designs to reduce the risk of bacterial build-up. The range is almost entirely free of polymers, and contains more glass, brass and SmartGuard, antimicrobial copper components, minimizing the likelihood of Pseudomonas infection and other growths.
The easy and flexible installation options of the new Contour 21 and Markwik 21 ranges makes them simple to install, even by one person. All Markwik 21 taps are fully compatible with Pall Medical sterilising water filters, adding an extra barrier against infection.
