Bristan creates a Buzz with shower upgrades

Bristan has invigorated two models within its bar shower range – Buzz and Craze – with user and installer inspired upgrades.

The company said its updated showers are packed with a host of new features, including a unique isolation wall fixing kit — Wallmount 12.

Now included as standard with the Buzz and Craze bar showers, Bristan’s Wallmount 12 fixing kit features built-in isolation for easy fitting. The award-winning kit has been cleverly engineered to enable front of wall isolation, meaning the connectors can be installed first, and the bar shower itself doesn’t have to be fitted until a later stage, protecting it from potential damage. When ready, the shower valve simply attaches to the connectors.

Buzz and Craze are thermostatic and also include Safe Touch technology, which shrouds the hot water feed inside the valve with a layer of cold water, to keep the bar itself safe to touch.

Priced at £249 RRP, the Buzz contrasts a large, round shower head with a more streamlined body. Priced at £279 RRP, the Craze has a contemporary rectangular shower head.

Wider than the original designs, the Buzz and Craze shower heads have a ball joint connection for adjusting the angle of spray. They feature dual outlets engineered to deliver maximum performance, with a large, drenching rain head and a separate three-mode handset. The new and improved showers also have two-way 180-degree diverter valves.

Tested to 200,000 on/off cycles in Bristan’s on-site UKAS accredited lab, the Buzz and Craze bar showers have a five-year guarantee.

Bristan head of product management Tom Rastall said: “Our new and improved Buzz and Craze models perfectly complement our bar shower collection, creating even better choice for installers across a range of price points. 

“Our priority is to make brilliantly simple products that are easy to install and maintain, which is why we’ve included the Wallmount 12 as standard for smooth installation, retrofit and servicing.”
