IXL Tastic Neo

An evolution in bathroom appliances from Sampford IXL

The IXL Tastic has been a recognised icon in bathrooms across Australia for more than 30 years. Founded in Geelong, Victoria in 1858, IXL was originally concerned with producing wood stoves, before moving into gas stoves and then electric appliances.

The design aesthetic of their best-known product the Tastic, has changed little over the years, however the introduction of the IXL Tastic Neo has launched the evolutionary process for the brand.

Architecturally-designed, engineered and made in Australia, the Tastic Neo is a statement of elegance. Its modern design complements any bathroom – combining heat, exhaust fan and light units with a unique aesthetic.

The flush-mounted sleek design, houses the tungsten halogen heat lamps neatly behind the frosted toughened glass and uses energy saving compact fluorescent lights with gimbal-mounted downlights allowing flexibility in light direction.

The Neo is complemented by a 5-year in-home warranty and a 2-year replacement warranty on heat globes and in-line fan.

With the Tastic Neo Sampford IXL has produced a design evolution, providing unparalleled safety and quality, building upon 150 years of experience – ensuring that the Tastic will remain a welcome bathroom addition for many years to come.
