The Culwell Flange: The only leak-proof closet flange New product inspires creation of a new standard, IAPMO IGC 285. The new Culwell® Flange and its proprietary design work to prevent leaks, water damage and costly repairs. It’s the only product on the market that takes the property into account and not just the plumbing by directly sealing to the toilet and the floor. Designed by inventor, licensed master plumber and co-founder/ Executive Vice President-Devlopment of Culnat™ Bill Culwell, the Culwell Flange design and watertight seal come from a true understanding of the needs of those installing and maintaining it. “Simply put, the Culwell Flange solves a problem that has been understood and yet overlooked for years,” Culwell notes. “The potential for this problem to create significant damage to any home has been known in the flooring, plumbing and remodeling industry for decades. Until now, only temporary or makeshift solutions such as caulking the toilet’s perimeter against the floor have been used. “But professionals know this is temporary and may cause significantly more damage by trapping any escaping wastewater under the toilet and in the floor structure. The Culwell Flange provides a durable, useful and practical approach to maintaining the value and long-term enjoyment in any home or construction project.” In new construction or remodeling, the Culwell Flange, which inspired the creation of a the new IAPMO IGC 285 standard, can save building owners and property managers thousands of dollars in time and repairs over the life of the property, and provides a complete waterseal solution that has become the new standard for specifying architects and engineers. The only one-of-its-kind when installed by manufacturer recommendations, it is the only closet flange that seals the floor, creating an impenetrable watertight seal. “Water damage are two words every property owner or manager dreads,” says Natalie Noack, CAPS, co-founder and President-CEO of Culnat LLC. “The cost, liability and the headaches associated with the neverending repairs caused by water leakage around the toilet into the subfloor can be prevented. Fix it and forget it with the Culwell Flange, which will reduce downtime, cost for repairs, and eliminate tenant turnover and liability from water damage.” About Culnat Culnat creates plumbing product solutions for “the impossible challenges” in residential and commercial bathrooms.
