When it comes to planning the perfect bathroom, there’s no doubt that hygiene and cleanliness come top of the wishlist. Add style and aesthetic appeal into the mix and the criteria for the ultimate soothing sanctuary becomes clear. That’s why Grohe’s latest product innovation is the epitome of everything bathroom brassware should be – sleek and contemporary, its new touchless tap designs add instant brains and beauty to any basin.
The new touchless tap design is available on Grohe’s popular Essence E and Eurocube E collections.
These attractively designed mixers feature touchless electronic control for effortless usability, perfect for all ages and abilities. The optimum height for operating comfort, this sustainable technology is ideal for domestic bathroom use as well as public washrooms and commercial projects. The re-styled and re-engineered Essence E and Eurocube E mixer taps feature advanced infrared technology and a choice of a geometric (Eurocube E) or curvaceous design (Essence E). Ideal for modern or traditional bathrooms, the mixers are available as deck or wall-mounted styles to suit all basin types.
Popular in public and commercial washrooms, touchless taps are now finding their way into design-led domestic bathrooms. With the current trend for future-proofing the bathroom gaining momentum, it makes sense to invest in key products, which are going to make life easier for every household member in the years to come. The new Grohe mixers can also be used to create bold design statements in any scheme. As well as adding a striking finish to the basin, these touchless taps are also so easy to use – simply wave your hand underneath the spout to turn them on and the sensor-controlled start-stop function will automatically stop the water flow once you’ve moved away. This intuitive design means they are especially suited to young children and the older generation as well as those with limited mobility.
Essence E incorporates a softly rounded shape with a swivel spout to make cleaning the basin area easier, something not often found in electronic mixers. Choose from a selection of heights as well as models with or without a lever.
For a more angular look, the Eurocube E range has a sharp, geometric style for a confident statement perfect for contemporary schemes. Both style lines come with bi-directional sensors, which are positioned for flawless functionality even when mounted on basins with elevated edges. There are seven pre-programmed settings for the most commonly used applications while facility managers in a commercial setting can also retrieve useful information on water consumption, which is capped at 5.7 litres per minute. So not only are Grohe’s new Essence E and Eurocube E touchless taps user-friendly and stylish but they’re also water-saving and eco-friendly, too.
