Over the years, OLI has created products that have, on a global scale, changed the daily experience in the bathroom. The WC has become more efficient and environmentally friendly, comfortable and accessible.
Over 20 years ago OLI was responsible for the mass production of the dual flush in flushing cisterns, an innovation now present all over the world and responsible for reducing water consumption by 50%.
Using patented technology and high quality manufacturing standards, OLI is recognized for constantly studying new and better solutions that increase water efficiency and accessibility for people with reduced mobility. From inlet valves, which allow the quick and silent filling of the cistern, to the resistant self-supporting structures that allow the user to adjust the height of the toilet.
Committed to sustainable development, the brand develops versatile solutions for application in new construction, and rehabilitation and renovation projects, with a contemporary design.
