National and international certification for sustainable building and renovation such as DGNB, BEEAM and LEED are becoming increasingly important in the project business. 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.

“In collaboration with our partner Phoenix Design, we have created a range of products in the entry-level segment that combines water efficiency, sustainable technologies and premium design at an attractive price,” explains Jan Heisterhagen, Head of Product Management. “The Eco-Smart models in this range of showerheads meet increasingly strict guidelines for sustainable building and renovation, making them particularly suitable for the project business.”

Combining sustainability and design
The Hansgrohe Crometta range comprises overhead and hand showers, shower sets and showerpipes. The Crometta hand shower offers an enjoyable showering experience and a choice of up to two spray modes: a soft rain shower and the powerful IntenseRain mode. The spray type can be selected by turning the spray disc. The appeal of this hand shower lies in its ten-centimetre showerhead, its ergonomic handle, the chrome finish and white plastic spray disc. This saves on chrome and thereby conserves production resources. All Crometta showerheads are available in a water-saving EcoSmart version which limits water flow to nine litres per minute, and in the case of the new Crometta Green hand shower, to six litres per minute.

A wide range for a variety of showering styles
With its large 24-by-24-centimetre square showerhead for an enhanced shower experience, Hansgrohe’s new Crometta E 240 overhead shower stands out with its sleek, high-end design, its gleaming chrome-plated finish, and in the case of the EcoSmart version, an impressive shower performance of nine litres per minute. Its rain shower mode pampers users and caresses the skin like a warm summer rain. A round version of the overhead shower is also available with a diameter of 24 centimetres.

Hansgrohe´s Crometta S or E 240 showerpipe is a complete set that combines all components in a single system for greater convenience and more pleasurable showering. It consists of a round or square overhead showerhead, a Crometta Vario hand shower with a shower hose, an adjustable shower bar, and Hansgrohe’s Ecostat 1001 CL thermostat. The control unit is ergonomically designed and has a convenient metal lever. Its EcoStop function limits water flow to ten litres per minute – for sustainable shower pleasure.

“With this wide-ranging line of products from showerheads to shower systems, we enable developers and architects to deliver customised, beautifully designed, and most importantly, sustainable bathroom solutions at the entry-level segment,” says Jan Heisterhagen.
