Sparkling clean: ActiClean toilet by American Standard

ActiClean uses the VorMax flushing technology, which has a fully integrated self-cleaning system.

American Standard launched the ActiClean self-cleaning toilet, which uses the VorMax flushing technology for a fully integrated self-cleaning system. Users simply press a button and walk away, letting the toilet do the rest. A flip-up door on the tank top houses the control panel for the cleaning system. For venues with children, the cleaning function can be locked and the cleaning cycle can even be canceled mid-cycle, if needed.

ActiClean also has a CleanCurve Rim that omits the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and buildup can get trapped and hide. The toilet tank and bowl feature EverClean, the permanent finish that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface. The mirror-like EverClean finish repels dirt, helping the toilet stay cleaner longer.

The cleaning solution cartridge will last up to nine weeks, based on two weekly cleanings. The cleaning system is powered by ordinary alkaline batteries. The cleaning system runs independently from the normal toilet flushing operation, meaning the toilet will always flush, even if the cleaning cartridge or batteries have run out.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Design-wise, the two-piece ActiClean toilet is streamlined, with cleaning system components tucked away inside the tank top for a neat appearance. The toilet's flat top provides room for bath decor items. The ActiClean bowl is available in an elongated, Right Height (16-½ inches) configuration that is ADA-compliant. The slow-close ActiClean seat has a contemporary design with no overhang on the front and sides of the bowl, creating a seamless look when closed. It also has a slow-close feature, as well as anti-slip bumpers that lock the seat in place so that it does not shift when in use.

ActiClean toilet coordinates with other American Standard fixture and faucet collections, including the Coastal-Serin freestanding bathtub with contemporary round floor mount tub filler, and the Studio undercounter bathroom sink with Fluent widespread faucet.
