If you’ve chosen a wall hung toilet for your bathroom, an essential feature you will need is a mounting frame.
This provides support for the toilet, as well as incorporating a concealed cistern and other pipework.
This guide will give you a quick overview of what a mounting frame does, and the things you need to think about when installing one.
Wall hung toilets
Installing a wall hung toilet requires a stud wall or section to be built in order to make room for the cistern and mounting frame. The frame provides the support for the toilet as well as the cistern, and the flush buttons are incorporated so they are in a convenient location.
The waste pipe is also incorporated into the mounting frame, making it easier to connect to the outlet from the toilet.
Types of mounting frame
At VictoriaPlum.com we have a selection of universal mounting frames, meaning they can be adjusted to fit a variety of wall hung toilets. However, you can choose the style of flush button to match the style of your bathroom.
You could go for a white push button for a more understated look, or one of the chrome effect dual flush buttons for more of a sleek contemporary finish.
Do I need a mounting frame?
All the wall hung toilets at VictoriaPlum.com require a mounting frame to support them. A stud wall is usually the best option for installing this style of toilet, either by using an existing partition or constructing a new one. A solid wall would still need extra support behind it, and may not be the best option as you still have to find space for the cistern on the other side, which may be a corridor or bedroom.
We would always recommend employing a professional plumber to install a wall hung toilet and mounting frame, as it’s a highly technical job that must be done properly to avoid serious problems.
