Hansgrohe has revealed the next generation of its concealed showering technology - the iBox universal 2, based on its original iBox universal, which was launched 22 years ago.
The company says simplified installation steps and new technical refinements make the new iBox universal 2 more convenient and faster to install, with added safety improvements. For example, the basic body can be adapted to any standard wall depth between 80 and 108mm, and an extension rosette enables convenient installation even in the case of wall constructions being too flat.
All of the iBox universal 2’s water-bearing product parts have been designed to reduce flow noises within the bathroom. The product also works in conjunction with new prefabricated sets for both showers and baths, which comply with noise class 1, to support continued noise reduction in the bathroom.
To support installers who may be working on older bathrooms, an adaptor plate can be bought to fit the new iBox universal 2 to any Hansgrohe shower installation.
For a seamless bathroom aesthetic, the iBox universal 2 has slim and elegant concealed piping. To continue the minimal look, Hansgrohe has developed two new shower and bath mixer solutions: the ShowerSelect Comfort thermostat and the DuoTurn concealed mixer.
Axel Meissner, product manager at Hansgrohe SE, said: “Installers are facing more demand and daily time pressures on the job than ever before. To support them in installing the best, high-quality products aligned with customer expectations, we designed the new iBox universal 2 with the installer’s needs top of mind. The new generation iBox is designed to simplify the everyday lives of installers, efficiently improving their workflows, and support them in obtaining excellent customer satisfaction.”
