Gerber Introduces Top-of-the-Line Avalanche Elite Toilet

Performance and Design Married to Create Industry-Leading Products

WOODRIDGE, Ill. – Gerber, a leader in plumbing products for more than 85 years, has introduced the Avalanche Elite family of toilets, one of the most innovative toilet lines available on the market today.

The Avalanche Elite line proves that toilets are definitely not created equal and can be a beautiful piece within any bathroom décor. The toilet features a modernized contemporary design with a “simple” semi-concealed trapway (CT). It offers a more sleek, refined look than most two-piece toilets and is less blocky and bulky than fully skirted options.

“The trapway is built separately from the body by expert craftsmen who focus intently on the shape, diameter, angles and texture of this vital piece,” says Lovin Saini, Gerber’s senior product manager. “The simple concealed trapway makes the toilet easier and quicker to install than many competitive skirted toilets – much like a standard two-piece toilet. For installation, there’s no special hardware or bolt alignment required, there’s no interference with the water supply/angle stop and the seat can easily be installed before or after the bowl is installed. The unique design keeps maintenance low, makes it easy to clean, adds style and can instantly modernize any bathroom within most budget parameters.”

According to Saini, the Avalanche Elite has one of the highest performing flushing systems on the market. The streamlined, compact intake and rim design helps channel water at a higher speed, which adds force to help scrub off stains and toilet paper. This flushing system also has 50 percent more line carry than the national standard, ensuring there are no hidden clogs under the toilet or in the pipes.

Another valuable feature to trade professionals and homeowners is the toilet’s extra- large footprint. The Avalanche Elite’s enlarged, rectangular footprint means it will cover virtually any old/dirty flooring or damage caused by the previous toilet. It’s perfect for a remodel, renovation or replacement job.

The new Avalanche Elite family of products is launching with three primary configurations:
ErgoHeight Elongated (Model #AV or WS-20-828) – Stands at an ADA approved 17” high and features an elongated bowl for added comfort. Both models are available in 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) and 1.28 gpf.

ErgoHeight Round Front (Model #AV or WS-20-852) – Again, stands at 17” high, but comes with a round front bowl for those who prefer the round look/feel and are concerned about space. Both models are available in 1.6 gpf and 1.28 gpf.

Standard Elongated (Model #AV or WS-20-862) – Stands at 15.5-16” high and features an elongated bowl Both models are available in 1.6 gpf and 1.28 gpf.

Features across the entire Avalanche Elite product line include:

  • Large, 2″ fully glazed trapway for clog-free waste removal
  • Extra-large dual fed siphon jets, which increases the force of the flush, clearing the bowl effectively
  • 3″ flush valve for maximum water flow and flushing power
