LAS VEGAS, HD EXPO (May 3, 2017) ― GROHE, the world’s leading single-branded manufacturer and supplier of kitchen and bath fittings, continues to spearhead innovation with the GROHE SmartControl—a shower system featuring push-button technology that provides an exciting level of customization to the shower experience.
GROHE Rainshower SmartControl uses a double button design allowing the user to control and set all desired shower settings. A combined push-and-turn button starts the flow of water and controls water volume. The textured edges of each button mean the user can easily control settings even with wet fingers. All controls are marked with symbols for intuitive operation, making this modern shower system easy to use.
GROHE SmartControl is also equipped with GROHE TurboStat technology, a metal thermostat handle that delivers preferred water temperature to the user within fractions of a second and keeps the temperature consistent for the duration of the shower. A SafeStop button prevents users from inadvertently raising the water temperature to more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit and GROHE CoolTouch technology removes the risk of scalding by preventing the exposed metal surfaces from heating up.
“The shower has evolved into one of the most indulgent moments of the day, and GROHE SmartControl elevates the everyday shower into a luxe experience that can be personalized for any user,” said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer for LIXIL Americas, the division under which GROHE operates. “The system is in keeping with GROHE’S approach to leveraging innovation to dial up the design and functionality of today’s home environment.”
For added convenience, the top of the control unit serves as a shelf for shampoo, shower gel and other body care products. Made of safety glass, the tray can be detached for easy and thorough cleaning – another fine example of user-friendly functionality packaged into an intriguingly futuristic design.
