ABOUT TOILET SEATS
Toilet seats are normally made of cast acrylic plastic. Traditional wooden toilet seats are also available. Toilet seats are available from leading manufactures with a gentle-close action, avoiding slamming noises. Novelty seats include seashell toilet seats, in which natural materials are encapsulated within clear plastic. In order to ensure satisfactory fit and operation, it is important to check whether the required seat is of round or elongated shape.
