A concealed installation in the shower or bath offers an ultramodern and user-friendly way of controlling your water. Minimalist design creates a sleek and fuss-free aesthetic, freeing up valuable space in your shower and turning it into the ultimate indulgence.
While an exposed installation can be installed onto existing connections quickly and simply, they protrude from the wall, taking up valuable shower space. In contrast, a concealed installation means that the technology is hidden. Installation is more involved, but the result is second to none.
By opening up the wall and hiding the valve technology inside, you can create an ultramodern look in your bathroom. If you’re embarking on a new build or major renovation project, ask a bathroom professional about your concealed installation options.
The advantages of a concealed thermostatic or non-thermostatic valve
On the hansgrohe iBox universal, which serves as the basic set for concealed installation, you can fit an alternative control unit in a different design or with more advanced features at a later stage if required.
Our range of concealed installation products offer almost limitless potential in bathroom design. Available in both thermostatic or manual versions, as well as in a range of finishes and shapes, there’s a solution for every bathroom. Each valve can be combined with any hansgrohe shower, for a consistent look throughout your bathroom.
If you opt for a concealed solution, your bathroom professional will first install the hansgrohe iBox universal basic set in your wall. On this, the new concealed manual or thermostatic valve is installed. Both use hansgrohe’s state-of-the-art technology and are equipped with durable mechanical valves, without the need for electricity.
The intuitive Select operating and design concept is user-friendly and elegant, particularly when it comes to concealed installation. On the award-winning ShowerSelect thermostatic and manual valves, you can turn up to four water sources on and off at the touch of a button, and change the type of shower spray in one click. Choose between:
Our decades of experience in customer service has shown that consumers primarily have the following questions. Here are the answers:
Is the iBox universal waterproof?
Yes. iBox and pre-fab sets are even sound-insulated, which means that when you use it, the flow of water is unobtrusive and quiet.
How long does the hansgrohe product guarantee last?
hansgrohe offers you a five-year voluntary manufacturer’s guarantee. If your product is older, and at a later stage something develops a fault or becomes leaky, we have spare parts which you can replace easily using standard tools.
My iBox is older. Can I still fit a new valve on it?
The functions of the basic set haven’t changed since 2001, so it is compatible with the latest thermostatic and manual valves, including those with a glass surface or Select technology. That means you can exchange your old single lever valve for an ultra-modern solution whenever you want. If your iBox predates 2001, contact us to discuss the solutions available.
