The perfect marriage of basin and mixer

The new Metris range and new Talis and Focus models with individual ComfortZones

Esher, July 2011. Hansgrohe, the mixer and shower specialist, understands the demands of the modern consumer and expects no compromise when it comes to comfort. Whether washing hands, freshening-up or filling a watering can – customers should be able to use the sink however they please.  On top of these different functions, there are also now many basin shapes, sizes and heights making it more complex than ever to achieve the perfect marriage of basin and tap. With the resized mixer ranges, Hansgrohe has risen to the challenge and offers versatile solutions.

New for 2011, the Metris mixer range and the latest additions  to the Talis and Focus mixer lines provide more individual freedom under the tap as the useable area under the mixer, known as the ComfortZone, can be individually specified. More room means greater comfort and convenience in the bathroom, cloakroom and utility room. The increased selection of mixer heights and styles, also enables a perfect style match with the chosen basin or sink.

Comfort and convenience at all heights and in all forms
The new Metris mixer range offers solutions for entirely different basin habits and requirements: whether flat ceramics, high wash bowls, large utility sinks or space-saving hand basins – five mixers with ComfortZones of 100mm to 260mm can be specified to achieve the ideal combination of basin and tap. The Metris 200 and 260 mixers provide enough space to fill large vases, buckets for cleaning or wash laundry by hand. The comfort and convenience offered by the new Metris 230 is flexible as the spout can be simply moved aside before or after use, perfect for example for washing hair or lifting out large containers without hitting the tap. And thanks to the side handle, the water flow and temperature can be easily controlled.

Excellent convenience in a small space is offered by the understated 100 mixer and the classically dimensioned 110 mixers, which are particularly suited to compact bathrooms and cloakrooms. The broad range of new Metris mixers provides the perfect solution for any source of water with matching bidet, bath tub and shower mixers for a co-ordinated finish.

Metris was designed by the prestigious studio of Phoenix Design (Stuttgart, Tokyo). All mixers are characterised by their conical, tapered, slender bodies, precise edges and soft curves that flow into a rectangular spout. The flat mixer handle and spout reflect refined luxury and character. The handle invites you to grasp it and turn on the mixer with an upward sweep.           

New combination options also with Talis and Focus
The existing successful Hansgrohe Talis and Focus mixer ranges have also been expanded with new heights offering greater flexibility at the basin or sink. Thanks to the new, spacious ComfortZone, the Focus 190 and Talis 150 mixers are the ideal partners for shallow wash bowls and large wash basins, while cloakrooms shine with the compactly-scaled Focus 70 and Talis 80 models. The Talis mixers are easy to operate with a 360-degree rotatable spout and a spray pattern which is comfortable for rinsing your mouth, washing hair, drinking water or for facial care. A swivelling spout is another popular feature which is now also possible with a larger ComfortZone in the form of the Focus 240 and Talis 250 models. Perfect for large wash basins and utility sinks, these mixers also offer maximum controlability with the conveniently positioned side handle.

Thanks to the trusted ceramic cartidge, the water temperature and flow can be precisely set for all mixers. Furthermore, all wash basin mixers come with Hansgrohe EcoSmart technology as standard. An aerator in the spout of the mixer delivers a consistently economical flow of water at around five litres per minute and enriches the water with air for a beautifully soft, fulsome jet. This fulfills the need to conscientiously use the valuable resources of water and energy.

The new line-up of Hansgrohe mixers for 2011 ensures the perfect partnership of mixer and basin, both in terms of an aesthetic match and also to meet exacting demands when it comes to practical usability.
