Grohe showcases water management solutions
Beirut, April 10, 2013
Grohe, a global manufacturer in the sanitary fittings industry, showcased its sustainable water resource management solutions at a recently concluded environmental event in Beirut.
The fourth e-ECOSolutions’ “Build It Green Lebanon” Sustainability Solutions Conference was held at the Monroe Hotel in Beirut, under the patronage of the Municipality of Beirut, Lebanon.
Grohe WaterCare makes use of water-saving technologies that are built into all of the products, a company statement said.
By integrating such avant-garde technology, Grohe’s products save 30 per cent more water.
Products featuring the resource-efficient Grohe EcoJoy technology meet the requirements of national building energy efficiency labels. Single-lever mixers equipped with Grohe EcoJoy guarantee a maximum flow rate of 5.8 litres per minute irrespective of pressure fluctuations. Faucets for the kitchen sink are also available as Grohe EcoJoy variants.
For the bathroom, there are showers with integrated saving technology and models equipped with an “EcoButton”, which gives users fingertip control of their water consumption. Grohe thermostats also feature an EcoButton, which reduces the flow rate by up to 50 percent.
Flushing systems for the toilet are available with a start/stop button or with a two-volume flush, which allow the user to choose the amount of water they want to use. Touch-free or self-closing faucets are especially recommendable for public and commercial restrooms.
Another special product is Grohe Blue, a kitchen system which delivers chilled and filtered still, medium or sparkling water direct from the tap.
This means consumers no longer have to carry home heavy packs of water bottles. It also means: no complex production and bottle filling of mineral water, no fuel-intensive trucking to retail stores and fewer shopping trips by car.
Grohe has reduced the packaging volume of its products by about 50 per cent, which means that fewer pallets need to be transported by truck, which, in turn, means reduced carbon emissions. – TradeArabia News Service
