regular occurrence, there are a number
of products and components that can be,
and are, replaced more regularly – such
as showers, hoses and taps – and currently
these are largely disposed of. So what the
bathroom industry needs to tackle are
the business opportunities around repair,
refurbishment and materials recycling.
And, in the most part, this goes back
to the original design, manufacturing
and reverse logistics processes, as well as
straightforward protocols and services
that allow for, for example, repair, and
recycling to take place without placing
extra burden on the industry.
From a manufacturing point of view,
the need to find solutions to this issue may
well be driven by supply chain pressures as
component and materials suppliers come
under their own pressures.
Sustainability is starting to play a key part
in new product design
Methven’s new Satinjet shower range,
including Kiri MK2 and Kaha, offers an
affordable option for your customers. Its
lower cost makes it a viable option for most
homeowners, whilst maintaining the high
levels of performance you expect from
Methven’s Satinjet showers use twin-jet
spray technology to create the optimum
water droplet size and pressure offering
300,000 droplets a second. The patented
design can also help customers save up to
50% on energy costs and up to 55% on the
cost of water used in the shower.
Featuring an updated sleek and
sophisticated all chrome exterior, the
refreshed Kiri shower, pictured, has been
designed with a new and updated handset
and shower rose.
The Kiri range also incorporates a
thermostatic shower valve that maintains
a safe and consistent water temperature.
The cool to touch bar featured on the
shower has been purposefully designed to
ensure an always cool exterior, preventing
the brass body of the valve getting hot.
In addition to providing a unique
showering experience, Kiri is fitted
with an easy fit chrome-plated rail with
adjustable mounting brackets, making it
perfect for retrofit installations.
The Kaha collection brings a distinctive
design look to any setting and is
guaranteed to bring your customers space
to life. Featuring a brand new design,
the Kaha shower head has a crisp shower
head design to ensure maximum water
coverage. At the slide of a button, users
can choose from two showering options
– a refreshing and invigorating body
shower and a relaxing and tranquil shower
massage mode. Staying on trend with a
chrome finish, all of the products within
the range come with a five-year warranty.
Similar to the Kiri range, the Kaha also
come fully fitted with a cool to touch
thermostatic shower bar and both ranges
feature an easy fit shower kit, allowing for
an easy install.
