Premium Choice - the way toilet flanges should be designed - With it's sealing surface design and the superior strength of it's one-of-a-kind Nylon Ring, why use any other toilet flange?
Ideal for tile - use with or without a water barrier membrane or when flange is recessed below the finished floor
Concrete Subfloor - flat surface design prevents eroding under the flange, which causes uneven subfloor & flange to break
Pier and Multi-floor Structures - Protects subfloors and ceilings below from costly water damage.
Mobile Homes - a leaks onto a contiguous wood subfloor can have a rippling effect throughout the entire home. It is not uncommon for an entire home subfloor to be replaced.
Bariatric|Disability - Culwell Flange’s nylon clamping ring has superior strength for heavy weight transfers - preventing a leading cause in broken flanges. No need for replacement ring. (If an ADA toilet is installed then shouldn't your flange meet the weight standards of ADA?)
American Wet Room - no longer restricted to a wall mounted toilet, wet rooms are now made possible when the sanitary pipe connects through the floor
Small Spaces - Culwell Flange is the solution to achieve an inclusive design in a small space - by creating a wet room and installing a toilet in a barrier-free shower area.

EXISTING TILE WITHOUT MEMBRANE recessed below finished floor
NEW VINYL FLOORING*
Ideal for Tile Applications
* Vinyl flooring is an option, however, Culwell Flange sits approximately 1/8" higher than standard flanges with a stainless steel ring. Newer toilets appear to have a lower base profile, creating a common challenge in the industry, requiring the need for toilet shims (to lift the toilet) when the flange is installed over a finished floor.
Culwell Flange installation using vinyl floor (30-100 mil thick) as a impermeable membrane presents no difference in height as a flange installed on top of a finished floor. Therefore, depending on your toilet design/model, you may be required to use toilet shims.
is the Solution:
When the wax ring fails • When the toilet overflows
When the tub spills over • When the flange breaks
The Institute for Business and Home Safety reports residential insurance payments by toilet seal/flange failures range from $586 – $2,697 per claim.
Culwell Flange patented design was engineered to prevent surface leaks under and around the toilet, water damage, and costly repairs that the traditional flanges failed to protect against. Every flange is designed to anchor the toilet to the floor and seal to the sanitary pipe. Toilet flanges were never designed to seal to the floor...UNTIL NOW!
Culwell Flange seals the floor with it's flat surface design and to the toilet.
Standard flange does NOT seal to the floor - only to the toilet with a wax ring
The Only One
of Its Kind
The Culwell Flange creates an impermeable water-tight seal, preventing water leakage into the subfloor, thus saving property owners and managers hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in time and repairs over the life of the property.

Why Culwell Flange?
Seals to the sanitary pipe, seals to the toilet with a wax ring (or alternative), and anchors the toilet to the floor.
Flat sealing surface that sits flush and seals to the floor, preventing leaks and water damage to the subfloor - used with or without a water barrier membrane.
Prevents leaks under & around the toilet when the wax ring fails, toilet overflows, or tub/shower spills over.
Prevents black mold, fungus, and mildew that can grow on or below the toilet after a leak.
Clamping ring compresses a sealing gasket against a floor membrane to create a water-tight seal - threads on 'clockwise' & screws attach it to the floor (8 screw holes)
Closet bolts are kept in place by clamping ring and elastomeric sealing gasket (s) for ease of toilet installation.
Blue nylon ring for added strength, durability and corrosion resistance preventing the need for future repair or replacement (withstands over 1000 lb).
Set a Standard* in achieving a wet room with a floor mounted toilet where the sanitary pipe connects through the floor.
PEACE OF MIND! Reduces worries of mold, and rotting floor hiding under the toilet that can lead to unforeseen expenses.
*This product inspired the creation of a new standard, IAPMO IGC 285, published by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO).
