    GROHE’s innovative technology uses the tap’s own water flow to drive a turbine, concealed in a small box installed below the basin. This converts the energy from the flowing water into storable electrical energy which then powers the tap’s infrared function. Just 60 seconds of running water delivers and stores enough energy to power the mixer for 24 hours- saving water, energy and money for your project.The Powerbox’s simple design means its positive benefits can be applied to a wide number of applications. It’s especially suited to busy public facilities, from airports and hotels to offices and public institutions. Its self-sustaining power model and low maintenance design also makes it perfect for projects where mains electricity is absent or unreliable, and is a great choice for projects emphasising sustainability and eco-efficiency.

    The PowerBox maintains GROHE’s standards of design excellence, and can be used with three different tap designs – GROHE’s Europlus E, Eurosmart Cosmopolitan E for mixed water and the Euroeco Cosmopolitan E for a cold water only fitting.

    Raj Mistry, GROHE UK Marketing Director, comments: “We’re delighted to unveil the new PowerBox from GROHE, which will be able to deliver an energy efficient and money saving solution to a wide variety of sanitary projects”.
