Dornbracht releases ‘rain’ showers
Dubai, September 22, 2011
Dornbracht, a producer of high-quality designer fittings and accessories for bathrooms and kitchens, has released its new products for the shower area under the umbrella of the 'Performing Shower' programme.
Andreas Dornbracht, managing director, said: 'With the Performing Shower programme, the emphasis is on different water forms to convey an individual new shower experience. We are once again affirming our company mission, the Spirit of Water through water in the form of rain, water as a clear powerful surge, water as an expansive or strongly pulsating or soft and aerated spray – the different ways we encounter water could hardly be more myriad.'
Overall there are four different rain showers, including rectangular versions for the first time. The diameter of round rain showers has been increased (from a previously uniform 200 mm) and is now available in both 220 mm and 300 mm diameter sizes, a statement from the company said.
Brand new to the programme is the 300 mm x 240 mm rectangular rain shower. The design of each and every rain shower in this programme has been streamlined, so that the spray area is rounded out in line with the shower head, creating a soothing visual impression while simultaneously making cleaning and maintenance easier.
All rain shower models are based on Dornbracht’s tried-and-tested anti-lime technology and can be mounted on the wall or overhead, and can also be combined with a free-standing shower system, the statetment said.
The new rain shower and the hand shower are available in all the customary Dornbracht finishes; champagne, chrome, gold, platinum, platinum matte, black matte and white matte.
With three variable spray settings, the user can choose between a wide normal spray, a soft spray (an aerated, very soft spray that beads up upon contact with skin) and a powerful pulsating massage spray. All the new hand showers also include the anti-lime system.
In addition to developments to existing products, Dornbracht's Balance Modules also received three new product additions. The new wall-mounted JustRain was designed in response to customer requests for a product that could be fixed to the wall.
Market feedback also resulted in the creation of the new WaterFall, with a projection that was increased from 120mm to 150 mm. At the same time, a plastic element was integrated to optimise water flow and prevent water from being 'pulled back' into the outlet.
The WaterPoints is completely new, with an extra wide 240 x 60 mm body shower designed to reach the upper and lower back. WaterFall and WaterPoints are available in chrome and platinum matte finishes.
In addition to the customary premium quality that the entire Performing Shower series offers with regard to product and water experience, special care was paid to water consumption in developing every product. The hand showers, for example, start with a flow of 12 l/min.
The products were designed by Sieger Design, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
