Synonymous with British-made bathrooms since 1861, Thomas Crapper products add individuality and luxury to new build homes. From WC’s and basins to taps and showers, they mix the authentic style and quality of Victorian and Edwardian era sanitary and brassware with 21st century technology.

The Thomas Crapper brand provides a point of difference while embracing the modern plumbing practices that go with a new home. Self-builders and high-end developers can take advantage of the opportunity to have a personalised cistern with the name of the property or owner cast into them. There is also a choice of any RAL colour on the aluminium cisterns.

Often employing traditional methods, each item is manufactured with great precision and attention to detail using the highest quality materials. Components fit together easily and are built to stand the test of everyday use.

Unlike many of today’s mass-produced products, with Thomas Crapper, cast brass - sometimes chrome or nickel-plated - is the preferred choice, coupled with meticulous design to ensure items function perfectly. One of the company’s best-selling toilet cisterns is created using traditional Victorian tooling but, instead of being made from cast iron, it is formed with a durable, marine alloy and a plastic liner to prevent condensation and reduce noise.

While toilet cisterns are six- and four-litre dual flush, syphon valves are used. This is not simply for authenticity; these valves generally function better than many modern valves that are prone to leak, wasting valuable water in the process.

Supply chain issues are not a problem. Almost all Thomas Crapper products are manufactured in the UK, so have a reduced carbon footprint. They are available on relatively short lead times of around 7-10 working days, excluding the personalised options. On larger sites, builders can call off the sanitaryware and associated components for individual homes as required and have the items delivered on a pallet per plot.

Thomas Crapper’s highly experienced head office sales and technical teams are always ready to help and have a close relationship with the company’s 100 or so UK retailers who provide a personal, local service.
