Hansgrohe Presents its New Select Technology!
The Hansgrohe Group, a bathroom specialist based in Schiltach, Germany, is one of the few global players in the bathroom fittings and with its two brands AXOR and hansgrohe, the Hansgrohe Group is a renowned leader in innovation, design and quality for its top quality bathroom and kitchen fittings, showers and shower systems. For 115 years since the company was founded in 1901, Hansgrohe is still instrumental in shaping the shower culture and even expanded its range of modern, top-of-class offerings from bath to kitchen faucets.
Hansgrohe has traditionally been one step ahead of its time, from the invention of the first hand shower in 1928, the creation of a new shower era with Raindance in 2003, and most recently the introduction of the intuitive Select technology which allows customers to easily select their shower pleasure with the click of a button. Therefore, it is their unrelenting dedication to investing in innovation, their commitment to outstanding quality products and their award-winning designs, a tradition that they hold closely to their hearts since Mr Hans Grohe’s time, that differentiates them from other brands.
Hansgrohe takes great pride in its products and its commitment to high quality standards and this is evident from the long list of over 500 design awards that are conferred by independent judging panels. In actuality, Hansgrohe currently holds a Top-10 position in the prestigious International iF Design Ranking this year for the highest design competence, and they are leading above other sanitary brands!
This is certainly a testament to the Hansgrohe’s superior technology and aesthetic design.

It is a perfect examples of how the Select technology makes showering easy and intuitive. Conveniently positioned at the front on the ShowerTablet Select, the Select buttons come with clear and easy-to-understand icons that show how simple it is to push a button to turn the shower on or off. More importantly, there is an option to install the Select buttons in such a way that they protrude slightly when they are in the shut-off position, making it easier to locate them by touch –with a light touch of your finger tips. This is a welcome feature for home owners, especially when planning for oases of well-being that accommodate all generations, including their children and the elderly. In hotels, this will create a perfect shower experience as guests can easily and intuitively determine how to use the shower controls even when viewing them for the first time.

Hansgrohe’s concealed ShowerSelect thermostats series, ShowerSelect Glass, features an elegant glass in a minimalist form, where function meets style. In fact, ShowerSelect Glass is suitable for small bathrooms since it is directly mounted on the wall and thus free up precious space for greater freedom in the shower area. Furthermore, since the Select buttons can be configured such that they are protruded when they are in the OFF position, ShowerSelect Glass is suitable for the elderly or the young children as the Select buttons can be easily located and handled.

Homeowner product selection tips
Try before you buy!
1. Do make a trip to the Hansgrohe showroom since you would be able to try the products ‘live’ at a demonstration area. We were enthralled with the wide variety of shower products we could try!
It is all about measurements!
2. Make sure that you take down the measurements of the area where you want the mixer or shower to be installed. The consultants will then be able to advise you on the most suitable product based the measurements given.
Select button vs lever handle
3. The mixers equipped with the Select button technology allow you to enjoy the consistent flow of the water. However, do note that unlike the mixers which come with conventional lever handles, the Select mixers would not allow you to control the pressure and volume of flowing water. Set at an optimum volume, you do not need to worry about wastage of water whenever you turn on the mixer; for example, if you have young children, you can be well-assured that they would not be able to use more water than they need!
