Abstract (en)

A device for preventing bad smells and exhalations from being spread during the use of a water-closet, comprising air-exhausting means located directly near the upper opening of the lavatory pan (10) so as to prevent the evil-smelling exhalations from being spread into the restroom. Said means consists of several intake openings (11,12) located at the upper edge of the opening of the lavatory pan and having their outlets above the holes for the water flushing so as to intake air from the inside of the pan and are connected to one or more pipes (13) running inside the upper edge of the toilet bowl up to the rear portion thereof where they are connected to an air-exhauster communicating with the outside. Alternatively, said intake openings are provided in the lavatory seat or in a collar to be fitted by pressure or laid on the upper edge of the lavatory pan. <IMAGE>
