Hansgrohe showcases range at WFES
Abu Dhabi, January 20, 2014
Hansgrohe, a leading manufacturer of bathroom fittings, is showcasing its innovative water saving products at the ongoing World Future Energy Summit 2014 (WFES) in Abu Dhabi.
Visitors to the Sustainable Living Expo at WFES will be able to witness the highest quality in German engineering and latest visions towards sustainable bathroom design at the world’s foremost event dedicated to renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean technologies.
Hansgrohe recently became one of the first bathroom fittings and showerhead manufacturers in the region to be awarded the Trustmark for Environmental Performance by the QCC. Awarded for 11 of its products, including the Crometta 85 1jet Green Hand Shower and Raindance S 100 3jet EcoSmart Hand Shower, the Trustmark acts as a mark of quality for customers, and shows that a specific product conforms to the various safety and performance requirements set by Abu Dhabi regulators.
Hansgrohe’s mixers and showerheads fitted with the EcoSmart technology consume up to 60 per cent less water than conventional products without any loss of comfort. Lower hot water consumption also means a reduced energy requirement, resulting in lower CO2 emissions and lower costs. Its mixers go beyond the minimum requirements set by Estidama, the sustainable building and construction standards authority in Abu Dhabi, to deliver 5 l/min, instead of the minimum 6 l/m.
Sophisticated flow limitation, special spray jets and the mixing of water with air also reduce water consumption down to either 6 or 9 l/min depending on the diameter of the shower, while offering lots of shower comfort and saving energy, as less water needs to be heated.
Dirk Schilmoeller, sales director Middle East for Hansgrohe, said: “At Hansgrohe, water is our passion, and it is our goal as manufacturers of mixers and showers to make these products as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible without any loss of comfort.
“We are delighted to have been welcomed by one of the UAE’s leading bodies for sustainability, the QCC, to showcase our pioneering EcoSmart products following our recent Trustmark certification award. We are also happy to have been given the opportunity to come down and connect with other developers and decision makers across the region that are at the forefront of driving sustainability.” – TradeArabia News Service
