You will see this toilet seat when going to the public toilets. What is the reason for this difference when compared to household toilets.
If you do not take into account the smell, there is a difference between when you walk into a public toilet and sit at home. The difference is that most toilet seats are U-shaped, with a front opening. Meanwhile, household toilets or in the mall are oval or round.But why is this difference?
There are 2 reasons!
First of all, this has its roots in a law in the United States in 1955.
In particular, the law states: “All toilet seats, except those installed in the flat, Front open, or there is an automatic opening and closing unit “. This is mainly because of hygiene. With U shape, you can sit comfortably without fear of sensitive touches on the toilet seat, thereby ensuring both personal hygiene and prevent the same urinary faces on the pedestal
In addition, the U shape helps women to clean more easily.
According to Lynne Simnick, vice president of the International Association of Mechanical Contractors (IAPMO), The toilet “allows women to clean up after using the toilet without having to sit down.” And the second is a purely economic issue, which is a cheaper U-shaped pedestal, as it uses less materials.
So, public buildings choose to use this type of platform, both to ensure hygiene, and also save money. The most amiable!
