In 1977, the design for the original Tastic was submitted and produced that same year. The launch of this product has led to many successful iterations of the Tastic product and has become an iconic product in any bathrooms across Australia.
IXL Home, has until now offered the Tastic Classic range, Tastic Premium range, Easy Duct and Eco Tastic 3-in-1 heat, vent and light solutions. In 2019, IXL Home expanded their premium Tastic range of bathroom products, with the easy-to-install Tastic Luminate, with modern design and improved product features to suit a variety of bathroom styles. Tastic Luminate is made up of Luminate Single 3 in 1, Luminate Dual 3 in 1, Luminate Vent Module, Luminate Vent & Light Module and Luminate Heat Module.
IXL’s new Tastic Luminate Single has been designed as a contemporary and sleek product suited to high-spec bathrooms. The Tastic Luminate has improved airflow extraction by up to 28 per cent, ensuring that bathrooms are kept as clean and fresh as possible. With the inclusion of a dimmable energy efficient LED task light source, Tastic Luminate provides superior illumination. Users have the choice of cool and warm LED, with the unit providing warm white lights that aren’t too harsh. Tastic Luminate is the latest in minimalist design with the unit resembling a skylight, giving any space a sense of breadth, with the single module suitable for bathrooms up to 12 square metres in size.
With one of the core purposes being to provide heat in the winter time, the Tastic Luminate works with Halo Heat TM Technology, rapidly heating the person beneath the unit without heating the entire room. An energy saving timer automatically cuts off the heat lamps, promoting energy efficiency. IXL has designed Tastic Luminate to be simple and easy to install by utilising CAT6 cable and plug and play connection, significantly reducing installation time.
