Hansgrohe Buyers Guide
Hansgrohe is an innovative company, where you will find a full range of equipment for everything to do with water in the bathroom. This does not just include high quality durable Hansgrohe showers but a vast array of taps and bathroom fittings too from toilet roll holders to mirrors.
Hansgrohe believes that a shower is just not getting wet under a warm water spray; they consider it to be much more than that, very much more than that. Although Hansgrohe produced their first-hand shower in 1928 and they continued to develop and innovate showering right up to the revolutionary air shower range introduced in 2005. Hansgrohe changed the way we shower in 1968 with the introduction of the Selecta hand shower with adjustable spray modes. However, in 2005 showering entered a new era with the introduction of the air shower. The number of spray modes can still be adjusted but now air was introduced into the mix. With this introduction of air, the Jets are completely transformed into soft rain or a powerful water massage.
The introduction of air at the shower head completely transforms the how the water falls and it can be described as anything from gentle rain to a vigorous massage. The Raindance range is offered I fixed overhead form with shower heads ranging in size fro 100mm to 600mm as well as standard hand held installations. Naturally, when we discuss with you the options for your new bathroom or en-suite facility you will have your own style.

Hansgrohe like the majority of us is concerned about the environment. Traditionally bathrooms have been very wasteful of water. The more water you use the more hot water you use, which means more work from your boiler and increased energy usage and ultimately higher energy bills. Hansgrohe are constantly developing new ways to improve their mixers and the current generation of EcoSmart taps can use up to 60% less water, but still, delivers the high-quality function you would expect from this leading German Manufacturer.
These are products that have been designed to be user-friendly as possible. Using extended handles and specially designed noise free ceramic cartridges, you can be confident that the ComfortZone range of products is to the highest standards.
Hansgrohe Cool Start
Following on from the progress Hansgrohe has made with EcoSmart, they have all now developed cool start. When the mixer is left in the middle position it will only supply cold water. You have to move it to the hot water to get it to mix. Sounds simple right? But this clever commonsense idea will save the amount of energy you use in your boiler by making you think – do you actually need the hot water from the boiler. Any saving of energy also means a saving for your wallet too!
