Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 22 September 2020 – As a ritual of enjoyment, showering is becoming increasingly important: 51% of Germans love to take a long shower, for 37% it is even the first remedy against stress. With the latest shower innovation from GROHE, even more moments of happiness can now be experienced in the shower: The Rainshower SmartActive hand shower with its smart functions and intuitive operation allows users comfortable shower enjoyment tailored to their wishes. Additionally, the various design options ensure a water experience tailored to the individual personality.
Spoilt for choice – with pleasure
Thanks to two new technologies, the GROHE Rainshower SmartActive hand shower is the most innovative hand shower in the GROHE product range and indulges users with three pleasant spray modes – from a gentle tingling sensation on the skin to a stimulating massage shower. Equipped with the GROHE SmartTip controller, a simple fingertip on the rear of the ergonomically designed hand shower is enough to intuitively switch between the invigorating Rain, powerful Jet or relaxing ActiveMassage spray. The Jet spray also rinses shampoo particularly quickly and thoroughly. A further detail that enhances showering comfort is the new, practical GROHE DripStop feature in the Rain and Jet spray modes, which minimizes annoying dripping after switching off the hand shower. This is GROHE’s answer to a major customer request: 81% of Germans consider it important that a shower does not drip.
For a perfectly coordinated bathroom design matching the personal style of furnishing, the GROHE Rainshower SmartActive hand shower is available in 130 mm and 150 mm sizes, in 11 colors (GROHE Colors collection, with chrome or white spray plate) and in a round or a suqare design. This makes it ideal for a combination with head showers such as GROHE Rainshower 310 SmartActive or Rainshower 310 Mono, Rainshower Bodysprays as well as concealed thermostats or the innovative GROHE SmartControl shower control.
The maximum shower enjoyment is rounded off by the matching shower rail and the flexibly adjustable bracket, which harmonizes perfectly with the slim SmartActive design. The GROHE EasyReach shelf is ideal for storing shower gels and shampoos. The practical QuickFix allows the upper and lower wall brackets to be adjusted to existing drill holes. And thanks to TileFix, compensation discs are a thing of the past. The functions of the GROHE Rainshower SmartActive reduce installation work to an absolute minimum – and increase individual showering pleasure to a maximum.
