Hansgrohe products win green performance mark
Abu Dhabi, January 6, 2014
German sanitary fittings manufacturer Hansgrohe has been awarded the ‘Trustmark for Environmental Performance’ by the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC).
Awarded for 11 of its products, the trustmark affirms the firm’s position as a leader in sustainability, setting the standard for fellow industry specialists in the region, said a statement.
The products awarded the trustmark by the QCC must comply with all the requirements set in the Assessment and Surveillance Plan for Water Fixture Conformity Scheme in order to be granted a Certification of Conformity and a license to bear the Abu Dhabi Trustmark for Environmental Performance.
Hansgrohe’s range of mixers and showerheads fitted with EcoSmart technology consume up to 60 per cent less water than conventional products without any loss of comfort, said the statement.
Dirk Schilmoeller, sales director Middle East, said: “The trustmark acts as a mark of quality and sustainability for home owners choosing their bathroom design, and designers specifying products for major projects.”
Hansgrohe’s green innovations include EcoSmart and AirPower technologies. EcoSmart is based on a sophisticated water dimmer integrated into the shower or faucet that reduces the water flow from 14.5l/min to 9l/min in hand showers and 13.5l/min to 5l/min in faucets.
AirPower technology mixes water with air, using the Venturi effect, which increases the overall volume, meaning water flow is rich and soft, which prevents splashing.
A selection of Hansgrohe products awarded with the trustmark will be on display at the QCC stand at The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2014 which will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from January 20 to 22. - TradeArabia News Service
