14 Things You Need To Know This Month – August 2016
1. Hansgrohe’s Crometta shower range combines responsible use of water with high-end design
Water and energy efficiency are among the key criteria to receiving building certification. The EcoSmart models from Hansgrohe’s new Crometta range of showerheads meet these standards. Special spray nozzles and a flow limitation system reduce water flow to nine or even six litres per minute, depending on the model. This means that less energy is needed to heat water. The overhead and hand showers and shower systems are therefore also particularly suitable for renovating hotel bathrooms.
