A thermostatic valve is a must-have for any family home, ensuring that your shower temperature stays constant even when someone runs a tap or flushes a toilet. They also save valuable water and energy, compared to single lever tap, thanks to their preset temperature.
In a thermostatic valve, you configure the exact blend of hot and cold water, and if the quantities of either change, the valve automatically adjusts to account for it. The result is that your shower temperature stays constant. And if the cold water is cut off completely, you’re also protected from scalding, as the valve shuts off the supply almost instantly.
One of the most important factors in choosing your thermostatic valve is deciding how many water sources it needs to control - a single source or a combination of a hand shower, side shower and overhead shower? We make thermostatic shower valves and thermostatic bath valves for up to five sources, so no matter how indulgent your bathroom, you can enjoy constant water temperatures.
At hansgrohe, we make both exposed and concealed thermostatic valves. An exposed thermostatic valves can easily be installed onto existing hot and cold water connections, and protrudes from the wall. This means they can also function as a practical storage area for your shampoo, as seen in the hansgrohe ShowerTablets range.
A concealed thermostatic valve is particularly suitable for new bathroom builds. With these thermostatic valves, all of the technology disappears behind the wall, so you can enjoy having more space to shower, as well as an uncluttered overall look. The technology is concealed in the hansgrohe iBox universal basic set. Once the iBox is in the wall, you can choose practically any of the concealed thermostatic valves and retrofit or upgrade whenever you want.
