GROHE launches new cashback offer for SmartControl showers

800 658 Hamish Kilburn

GROHE has launched its latest cashback incentive, its first for 2019, offering consumers up to £50 cashback on some of the brand’s most innovative showers…

The cashback offer that GROHE has recently announced runs across eighteen different model specifications of GROHE’s one box SmartControl Shower systems, including exposed, concealed, excealed and Euphoria styles with choices of round and square trims and shower heads to ensure a perfect match to existing decor.

The extensive range of SmartControl models and specifications can be found on the website or alternatively, GROHE offer an online configurator tool where customers follow various steps, selecting their preferred style or requirements to find the perfect model to suit their bathroom or project. You can visit GROHE’s online SmartControl configurator.

– Exposed – The original SmartControl shower system, which is wall mounted and comes complete with head and hand shower. Multiple spray patterns can also easily be switched between, delivering a shower perfectly tailored to your mood. Ideal for retrofit.
– Concealed – All of the SmartControl technology but with none of the pipework on display. The concealed version is a great way to achieve a minimalist look in the bathroom or create more space in your shower area. Concealed showering also offers more personalisation of the individual space in terms of layout. The freedom to create a truly bespoke shower space is enabled thanks to the concealed valve being able to be placed on an opposing wall away from the outlet.
– Excealed – Excealed offers the best of both worlds, with an exposed thermostat still on display but reduced pipework thanks to the wall-fixed head shower meaning a riser rail is unnecessary. Both head and hand shower offer a choice of two spray patterns.
– Euphoria – The latest addition to the range is an excellent choice for retrofit projects. With a traditional exposed frame on display, it has a slimmer interface, creating an illusion of more space in the bathroom. Euphoria offers a multi-jet shower head with up to three shower patterns plus the additional hand shower for more personalisation than ever before.

The cashback offer is available on qualifying SmartControl purchases from a verified retailer and consumers can make their claim directly through the GROHE website, www.grohe.co.uk.

The offer applies to purchases made from January 1, 2019 until the May 31, 2019, with all claims to be made by June 30, 2019. Proof of purchase is required. Terms and conditions apply.

640 480 Hamish Kilburn

Shower expert and Hotel Designs Recommended Supplier GROHE unveils its first ever shower tray collection…

Whether it’s a new build or a bathroom renovation project, the demand for luxurious, ergonomic and modern spa bathrooms continues to increase. Therefore, contemporary solutions not only provide comfort and excellent performance that lasts for decades, but in many cases a visual enhancement too. With the introduction of GROHE’s brand new extra-low profile shower trays, design accents that ultimately increase the value of a property can now be specified and implemented in the home. In particular, a bathroom free from substantial edges and steps makes for a timeless and accessible design.

With its unique and high-quality shower trays, GROHE, the world’s leading supplier of sanitary fittings, is setting new standards, creating the ideal combination of form and functionality in the modern bathroom. GROHE shower trays are designed to be a PerfectMatch: they not only match with any of the three sanitaryware design lines – GROHE Bau, GROHE Euro and GROHE Cube – but can also be optimally combined with other GROHE bathroom accessories too. Specialist retailers can benefit from GROHE’s versatility as a full-service supplier, with its complete bathroom solutions making it simple to implement individual customer wishes in a unique GROHE design from a single source, drawing on LIXIL’s decades of know-how in this category.

“All the shower tray models are made of high-quality sanitary acrylic in an Alpine White finish.”

The high-quality GROHE shower trays are particularly low profile and, with their depth of only three centimetres, are a design object of every bathroom. This makes the installation particularly sustainable, as accessibility is guaranteed for all users and therefore future-proofed for years to come. The choice of rectangular or square models work to adapt seamlessly to all designs and with sizes from 80 x 80cm up to 90 x 140cm, a selection of seven different dimensions ensures there is a model suitable for every bathroom space.

All the shower tray models are made of high-quality sanitary acrylic in an Alpine White finish which feels pleasantly warm even at the first touch. The tray’s solid, full-surface base provides stability and longevity whilst the non-porous and smooth surface ensures increased slip resistance during showering.

Grohe Smart Shower

Perfect precise performance: Euphoria SmartControl from GROHE

800 739 Hamish Kilburn

The minimalist design of GROHE SmartControl introduces three times the control in the shower…

The experience of “Push, Turn, Shower” has now become even more multifaceted as the smart technology is integrated into another successful GROHE design line – GROHE Euphoria SmartControl. The new surface-mounted installation features a significantly slimmer form of the SmartControl interface as well as fast-acting temperature regulation that prevents the risk of scalding thanks to the GROHTHERM thermostat.

Three times the control GROHE Euphoria SmartControl is brimming with “Made in Germany” technology and design quality which is displayed in the multi-jet shower heads. The smart shower system’s centrepiece is the front-mounted push and turn control unit. Unique pictograms called GROHE EasyLogic provide intuitive operation. The turn of a button can regulate the water pressure , ranging from a gentle shower to a more vigorous awakening, depending on each individual’s mood.

With the push of a button, the spray types can be selected. The first button, for example, activates the Euphoria handshower or the Euphoria Cube stick, offering complete flexibility so that the water can be directed exactly where it is needed. The button in the middle provides full SmartControl power. Thanks to the new ActiveRain jet control, one can choose between a powerful jet spray perfect for rinsing out shampoo, or a concentrated jet spray that massages away the stresses of everyday life. The third button, with its gentle PureRain spray, has been designed to offer ultimate relaxation from your shower experience. After switching off the water, the system automatically saves the selected flow rate until it is next used. In addition to the Rainshower 310 SmartActive shower head, the GROHE Euphoria SmartControl shower system is also available with the multi-jet Euphoria 260 head shower. Three types of spray can be selected manually by turning the innovative control in the middle of the shower head’s plate: a powerful jet spray, the invigorating SmartRain jet spray and a full rain jet spray that brings the tranquil sensation of a gentle summer rain.

The new GROHE Euphoria SmartControl control interface features a very slim, minimalist design with compact dimensions

Meanwhile, thanks to GROHE QuickFix, individual adjustments can be made to the upper bracket of both models which makes the drilling of additional holes unnecessary, meaning it also serves as an ideal retrofit solution It is also possible to swing the arm of the head shower 180 degrees. In addition, the system features GROHE CoolTouch technology which ensures the chrome surface of the control unit does not get too hot whilst the GROHTERM SmartControl thermostat with GROHE TurboStat technology delivers the highest precision in temperature regulation.

Minimalist design – clean and convenient

The new GROHE Euphoria SmartControl control interface features a very slim, minimalist design with compact dimensions. Especially in smaller bathrooms, these elements offer additional comfort whilst giving homeowners the opportunity to own a high-performance shower that can function efficiently in small spaces. The GROHE EasyReach shower shelf also provides a convenient storage solution for toiletries. Compared to the existing surface-mounted SmartControl solutions this is an even slimmer version. This minimalist form is beautifully contrasted with the generously sized 310mm shower head which is available in a round or square design. With a three choice of a high-gloss and durable GROHE StarLight chrome finish or the elegant MoonWhite acrylic glass, the design can be perfectly matched into any modern bathroom.

GROHE has been developing new product categories since its inception. This includes the GROHE Blue and Red water systems and the recently-introduced GROHE Sense water security system, which is an innovative component in the growth market of smart home technology. Innovation, design and development are closely aligned with one another and are enshrined in the German site as an integrated process. As a result, GROHE products carry the seal of quality “Made in Germany”.

 

Kaldewei NexSys opens new chapter for floor-level showers

1024 724 Hamish Kilburn

Bathroom specialist Kaldewei has just launched a revolutionary 4-in-1 system solution for easy, safe shower installation…

Launching in the UK this month, Kaldewei NexSys is a shower surface revolution. The innovative 4-in-1 system which is already pre-assembled at the factory, consists of a waste channel, sloping support, sealing and an enamelled shower surface enabling ultra simple and fast installation by professionals. NexSys takes a completely new approach to floor-level showers, perfectly combining two worlds: with one of the main advantage being it’s a seamless shower surface made of steel enamel with the design of a tiled shower area with a shower channel. The Kaldewei NexSys opens up a new market segment and rings in the change from shower channel to channel shower. This innovative product is available in eight sizes.

Narrow channel is an eye-catching feature

Only one year after the concept was introduced at ISH 2017 and after subsequent market research, Kaldewei is launching its revolutionary NexSys shower surface system on the market. The visual highlight of the elegant design is the narrow waste channel with a high-end designer cover made of brushed stainless steel that fits seamlessly into the shower surface’s overall minimalist look. Like all Kaldewei bathroom solutions, NexSys is made of superior steel enamel so it will retain its exquisite look for decades.

4-in-1 system cuts out installation steps

It’s not only in visual terms that the NexSys is revolutionising the shower market, Kaldewei is also a trail blazer when it comes to shower surfaces with regard to installation. The pre-assembled system of waste channel, sloping support, sealing tape and shower surface can, for example, be positioned directly in the screed recess after height compensation – a significant time saving for bathroom professionals. Thanks to the low built heights, floor-level installation is also possible with a limited construction depth. NexSys has no interior contour whatsoever making it ideal for insertion into the bathroom’s tile grid – like a large enamelled tile with integrated waste channel. Sound proofing is guaranteed with the use of sound insulation tape.

Minimalism and luxury: the new Grohe rainshower revealed

863 1024 Toby Cruse

Grohe is ushering in the next generation of bathrooms with its newly launched rainshower, which looks to combine soothing, delicate showers with invigorating and refreshing massage functionalities. Available in round or square options, the design intends to provide users with a luxurious shower experience set to look the part in any modern bathroom or wet room.

Manufactured at the Grohe plant in Lahr, Germany, the extra-large shower head is supported by a slender shower arm designed to fit neatly into any shower without looking out of place. The Rainshower 310 2-Jet showers features oval water outlets arranged in a star-shaped pattern at the centre of the spray face generate a vigorous massage jet.

They are surrounded by an arrangement of nozzles producing a much gentler PureRain spray, meaning users can choose between a concentrated jet to loosen up tense muscles or rinse shampoo out of their hair and a rain shower softly enveloping their body. Cleaning the shower face is just as easy; the SpeedClean design of the silicone nozzles means that limescale can simply be wiped off.

Despite their 310mm diameter, or edge length in the square option, the showers never feel obtrusive. This is thanks to their low-profile body and uniquely streamlined silhouette. The beautifully slim shower arm comes with a matching round or square wall rosette. The new showers are optimally paired with the new SmartControl Concealed units, whose depth of only 43mm ensures minimum intrusion into the shower, leaving maximum room to move around.

Design-coordinated hand showers and other water fittings are available in the extensive range of bathroom products from Grohe, the brand that is synonymous with flexibility in bathroom design and fully personalised shower experiences.
