hansgrohe PowderRain: a new showering sensation

hansgrohe PowderRain: a new showering sensation

Surrender to nature’s own sensation

hansgrohe understands that everyone has their own idea and preference of what makes the most rewarding showering experience. Therefore, a brand new sensation has been created, hansgrohe is proud to unveil their new PowderRain spray! This is a highly innovative spray mode which is aligned exclusively for the premium range of hansgrohe Raindance Select S, and Raindance S showers.

Inspired by nature

Inspired by the rainforest’s warm and misty droplets, hasngrohe has developed the new PowderRain spray to bring you a brand new showering sensation. A velvety- soft touch to your body, PowderRain delivers a sensuous showering comfort. In place of one single spray outlet for each nozzle, PowderRain includes six fine openings that transform its generous spray into thousands of incredibly light microdroplets that gently fall on the skin without bouncing off. Simply tap the button, you can instantly experience the soft sensation. Due to hansgrohe’s innovative technology, splashing is not a worry anymore, numerous tiny droplets combine together to provide an intense impression. It creates a fall of droplets that cocoon so much more of the body, and intensify skin sensation. Furthermore, it’s quieter too!
You can watch the splash and sound testing videos here.

Experience Raindance® Select S with PowderRain

You can find the modern, highly functional and reliable premium range here. A totally indulgent choice that will transform your showering experience.

 

 

 

 

 

EcoSmart is trending- be smart and save water!

UK Bathrooms are committed to sustainability and being as eco-friendly as we can to the planet. We improved our delivery packaging earlier this year to green packing materials that are not harmful to the environment. However, there are still many other efforts we can make into protecting the climate and the environment.

Presenting the Hansgrohe EcoSmart function:

Innovative EcoSmart

Climate protection concern for the everyday individual can begin with showering and bathing, as the function that consumes the most water in our everyday lives. As water experts, Hansgrohe assumes a pioneering role in conserving this precious natural resource. Most of Hansgrohe mixers and showers are fitted with Hansgrohe’s EcoSmart technology. It only requires up to 60% less water than other normal products with no obvious difference thanks to its efficient design. Less hot water consumption means lower energy requirements. Therefore, fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs.

How does this work?

Showers

The water pressure in your shower is measured by the “Precision O-Ring”, it reacts flexibly to the water pressure and adjusts water quantity. If the pressure is too high, the ring makes the opening smaller. Vice versa, if it is too low, it expands the opening.

Available EcoSmart showers

Mixers

These work by adding air and operating with a special flow limiter. The EcoSmart aerator is integrated into the spout of the basin mixer and enhances the water with air. The outcome is a full, bubbling jet of water. A “precision elastomer” reacts automatically to various water pressure and modifies its shape. It maximises the flow, thus constantly saving precious water.

Here are a few available EcoSmart mixers

Hansgrohe Axor Starck V tap – innovation in movement!

We are really excited about the very latest tap that is in our showroom and we wanted to share this with you as soon as we could. Philippe Starck has excelled himself with this design of tap which he himself describes as “a revolution, the essence of minimalism a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,”

The Axor starck V Spout tap has a glass body with an open ended spout which when operating allows us to see the water forming a vortex so fascinating that many will, we feel sure, just want to see it operate and almost forget why they have turned on the tap in the first place! The glass body and open-ended spout make it possible for us to experience water a completely natural element at home.

Axor Starck V

Hansgrohe are the manufacturers of this latest masterpiece and are renowned for their technological design and for bringing some stunning designs to the bathroom, the AxorV is just the latest. The spay researchers at Hansgrohe have been working in conjunction with Philippe Stack to try to bring us a way in which we could see the vortex in operation and they have succeeded with this glass bodied product.

However, what has not to be lost it that the tap has to be both functional and made easy to keep clean, they have achieved this with their easy click-in design and safety-stop function make it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it, even without having to close the valve. Naturally the selected crystal glass has also been very carefully chosen and is dirt resistant and can be cleaned in the family dishwasher.

A number of finishes is offered for this revolutionary tap, chrome and high-gloss white variant, together with 12 other exclusive finishes, such as brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.

Shower heads that are made to impress!

A shower head is a functional device that is seen on every shower, but it can be very striking too, so why not take a look at these fantastic shower heads that were made to impress.

We illustrate just three of these and for a shower head that will get your family and friends talking, the Pegler Star fixed shower head & arm is guaranteed to do that. This chrome head is modernist in design, but above all it is very functional as well as being contemporary. The shower head offers the user four different choices of spray pattern; this multi-mode shower head produces a gentle stream or a torrent of refreshing water, all dependent upon the preference of the user. The Pegler is unique as well as being very attractive, perfect for any size of shower enclosure certain to be modern and appealing, but very easy to clean. As with all Pegler shower accessories and fixtures, this shower head comes with a full five-year warranty from any manufacturing defects.

Another modern looking shower head but with a difference is the Hansgrohe Raindance Rainfall 180 Air 2jet Overhead Shower. Whilst this shower head is guaranteed to make an impression to all who see it, above it is the two different spray settings that will impress the user. The Flood Jet gives a wide, generous spray to ensure a relaxing soak, while the gentle blend of air and water of the RainAir gives a more relaxing, mist-like experience. A water pressure of 2 bars is necessary to enable the system to work and the head is offered in either white or chrome finish.

Hansgrohe Raindance Rainfall 180

The third of our choices is the Grohe Rain Shower F-Series Celling Shower and is designed to give the user a customised shower experience. It has been cleverly designed to be almost invisible and because it uses GROHE’s brilliant DreamSpray technology, this distributes the spray evenly and efficiently across the nozzle, and is very easy for the user to adjust for perfect flow rate. What is important in any shower head is the ease of cleaning and the GROHE is designed for that, add to that the SpeedClean system, this will ensure that her is no build-up of timescale.

Axor Starck V bathroom tap by Philippe Starck

We are delighted to be associated with the exclusive launch of another stunning design from Philippe Starck in the shape of a glass bodied open ended spout tap that looks, as well as functions, beautifully. Indeed when describing his new design, Philippe said “Axor Starck V is a revolution, the essence of minimalism, a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,” and we could not have described it better.

Axor Starck V

The Axor Starck V was the subject of a lot of research by the Hansgrohe technicians until they finally perfected the vortex principal which is the secret of this exclusive mixer. The Axor Starck V is certainly beautiful, but importantly it is functional as well. With the very easy-click-in design and safety-stop function, this makes it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it.

Axor Starck V2

The material itself is also very carefully selected, Hansgrohe used crystal glass, which is top quality and importantly this is dirt resistant, you can even put the glass body into the dishwasher! In addition to the chrome and high gloss white, you have a choice of twelve different finishes, for example brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.

Check out a video of the Axor Starck V features below:

Philippe Starck – bathroom designer

Depending upon how avant garde they are, some designers are very extrovert and this could apply to French designer Philippe Starck who has been responsible for designing a multitude of interior items over the years, but from our point of view it is his bathroom designs that interest us the most. We consider that his greatest successes are the Axor Starck collection, with which Hansgrohe caused a stir in 1994, with the first mixer tap with a joystick operating lever!

starck

Parisien born Starck, now in his 67th year studied in the French capital in the 1960’s and his designs have appeared in prestigious hotels in New York as well as London, these included billowing ceiling-height curtains and voluptuous seating, claiming that these represent the actors on the stage of life.

We are particularly proud to display many of his designs on our web pages and the fabulous range of bathroom products in the Axor Starck range from Hansgrohe; together with the Axor Starck organics are increasingly popular with our customers.

In the Axor Starck range we offer a range of basin, bath and kitchen mixer taps and bath shower mixers. The Axor Starck Twin Handle Monobloc Basin Mixer Tap, as the name suggests is one of his two handled designs and utilises ceramic cartridges so no more leaking from the tap or messy washers to change. On the other hand the Axor Starck Classic Single Lever Standard Basin Mixer demonstrates the joystick principle and is simplicity itself to operate.

Axor Starck Classic Single Lever Standard Basin Mixer

The Axor Starck Ecostat 1001 SL Exposed Thermostatic Shower mixer is a sleek and stylish way to regulate shower temperature. The thermostatic temperature controls allow users to easily adjust temperature with a simple push button. A classy addition to any bathroom, whether a new build or an upgrade.

The organic range of Hansgrohe Axor Starck products are an innovative blend of cutting edge, sleek design and modern technology in one. Take the Axor Starck Organic Basin Mixer 280 as one example of a basin mixer with a truly unique identity. This mixer features a fully adjustable spray direction ensuring that this can be customised to match the contours of your basin, no chance of this splashing back at the user. The mixer also has separate temperature and flow controls give a balanced mix every time.

Axor Starck Organic Basin Mixer 280

The Axor Starck Organic Porter Unit is no ordinary shower head and it is clear that Axor Starck has had his hand in the design of the beautiful small and stylish hand shower. Cast in chrome in a minimalist, geometric form makes for the perfect addition in the highly modern bath or space. The baton hand shower features two different settings, with a simple twist of the set, select between a normal spray, and a gentler soft spray as required.
