TOTO may be one of the most well-known brands in the toilet industry, but did you also know that they have a substantial lineup of commercial products as well? Offices, schools, and other public spaces can all be outfitted with the TOTO name, using a variety of bathroom products that includes motion-sensing faucets, hand dryers, and, yes, commercial toilets.
For contractors, plumbers, and other professionals that work on public spaces, having a trusted name like TOTO as a commercial option can be a real relief. With that in mind, the SUPPLY.com team has gone ahead and highlighted some of the standouts of the TOTO commercial collection. In this guide, we’ll touch on the major categories that TOTO offers, as well as our own product recommendations from within those categories to get you started if you’re in the market for commercial fixtures.
Starting with the obvious, the standard commercial toilet from TOTO is the Flushometer model. These toilet bowls are ADA compliant, making them accessible to all ages, and come in a variety of custom TOTO finishes ranging from bone to Sedona beige. Both toilet seats and flush valves are sold separately, with valves coming in either manual, battery-operated, or hardwired options.
Looking for something a little more high-end for your bathroom? The TOTO Neorest collection contains an assortment of toilets that are created to be both intuitive and energy efficient. Each model in the Neorest collection is equipped with the best technology that TOTO has to offer, guaranteed to give you one of the most effective and hygienic flushes you’ve ever seen.

In public restrooms that see a lot of foot traffic, urinals can be just the thing to keep the line moving fast and efficiently. Fortunately, TOTO’s collection of urinals contains a wide variety of features to fit most commercial bathroom situations. Each urinal is wall-hung and ranges in style from the circular TOTO High Efficiency model, to the more traditional squared model. As with their toilet counterparts, urinal flush valves are sold separately; check out the product details for your urinal to find out which flush valve pairs best with it.
As a side note, if your aim is water efficiency in the bathroom, then the urinal is definitely a fixture you should consider. Like we discuss in our Ultimate Urinal Buyer Guide, these products are the ultimate water savers, because they only need to handle liquid waste; TOTO’s urinals use between 0.125 and 1.0 gallons of water per flush depending on the model.
In public spaces like offices and schools, bathroom faucets need to be long-lasting and hygienic to prevent the spread of germs. TOTO’s lineup of commercial bathroom faucets is exactly that. With nearly a hundred touchless-operation faucets to choose from, ranging from the small and simple EcoPower Single Hold model to the sharply geometric Libella collection, TOTO ensures that every drop of water will be put to good use.
In addition to their hands-free faucets, TOTO offers a range of options that come with either one or two handles (the ideal number of handles for your bathroom will depend on the amount of countertop space you have available and the type of sink you purchase). These handles come in cross, knob, and lever varieties, giving you a little wiggle room when deciding on a specific interior design vision for the bathroom.
When purchasing a bathroom sink, the two main features you want to focus on are the number of faucet holes and the sink installation type. TOTO commercial bathroom sinks have between 0 and 3 faucet holes; the ideal number of faucet holes for your sink depends on whether your faucet connects to the sink or to the wall, as well as how many handles the faucet requires.
Like we mentioned above, the best sink/faucet combination for your bathroom depends on the size of the room and the availability of countertop space. Fortunately, TOTO sinks come in several installation types depending on your situation. The sink that will take up the least amount of space will likely be the undermount model, which is placed directly into the countertop with no overhanging lip. If you have a bit more space to play with, you can try either the drop in model or the vessel model, both of which rise up slightly above the level of the counter. And finally, if you’re not working with a counter at all but you still need a sink in the room, both the pedestal model and the wall mount model can stand on their own.
Once you have your basic necessities checked off, there are a number of additional commercial TOTO items you may want to consider if you’re hoping to further spruce up your bathroom. First and foremost, the TOTO bidet seat is a neat addition to any toilet if you don’t have the space for an actual bidet. The seat attaches on top of a regular toilet seat and provides all the functions of a typical bidet, with several models coming complete with the added functionality of heated seating and soft-close lids. Looking for a cleaner, more comfortable toilet experience? Add a bidet seat.
Other bathroom products from TOTO include the bathroom soap dispenser, a motion-activated way to guarantee a higher level of hygiene, and the hand dryer, which saves money and reduces trash by using warm air rather than paper towels. The balance of products and features in your bathroom is ultimately going to depend on your budget and your space restrictions, but if you’d like any further information on any of the products we’ve covered here, or if you have any questions about your bathroom product options in general, feel free to reach out to the SUPPLY.com team of product experts at 866-355-0310!
