    Product watch: IXMO Shower series by KEUCO

    The IXMO shower series by KEUCO is the go to for sanitary experts and lovers of excellent design. It offers an extensive range of functions; which have been efficiently combined and tailored to enable specifiers, designers and consumers alike to create a stylish shower area with the minimum number of visible components…

    KEUCO shower

    IXMO’s technical construction created a milestone in the development of sanitary fittings, the designs pioneered by KEUCO, are offered as round or square fittings; each providing IXMO’s unique combination of functions. For example, a three-way diverter valve, a hose connection and a bracket for the hand shower, have been combined into one.

    When fitting an IXMO shower it is the ability to freely position the individual elements that allows for much greater design choice. A clever mounting rail enables an easy and precise alignment of the components; whether you want to position the valves horizontally or vertically, they will always align with the help of the mounting rail. The IXMO thermostat fitting incorporates the perfect example of KEUCO innovation; if the waterways have been crossed during installation the cartridges can simply be switched over inside the valve instead of the costly ordeal of accessing the pipework!

    Another intelligent feature of IXMO is the depth-compensator which ensures fast and safe installation. The depth compensator makes it possible to install IXMO showers into walls with depths between 80-110mm allowing for building methods both new and old.

    One of the key details when designing a showering space is the ability to visualise the area and how all the elements will work together. With IXMO it is possible to combine up to three separate water outlets; so for example the main shower head, a hand shower with shower rail or wall bracket, waterfall shower and a spa hose can all be combined.

    This can be easily demonstrated via the brilliant IXMO on-line planner, a system which enables designers and consumers to create a personalised showering solution. The results can be saved in pdf format providing both a detailed specification with illustrations and an installation guide showing component placement and pipework routings.

    The star of the IXMO series is the IXMO solo thermostat. Created for single function showering it easily surpasses conventional thermostat solutions as they require two wall mounted elements to adjust the water flow and temperature and a third element for the hose connection. However, the IXMO solo thermostat compresses the shut-off valve, thermostat and hose connection into one single element.

    The IXMO_solo Thermostat and IXMO_solo Single lever mixer created for single function showering cleverly combines shut off, flow and temperature control and hose outlet into one single fitting allowing for ease of use and speed of installation.

    IXMO shower fittings have an elegant minimalistic design, they are available in six different finishes including; chrome-plated, aluminium and PVD stainless steel, brushed bronze, brushed nickel and brushed black chrome. IXMO shower accessories also provide innovation; an integrated yet movable soap dish; a height adjustable shower rail with an easily adjustable bracket that can be turned by 180° so it is ideal for both right and left-handed persons and can be moved with just a single hand.
