LAS VEGAS, KITCHEN & BATH INDUSTRY SHOW (January 21, 2020) ― GROHE, a leading global brand for bath and kitchen water solutions, is featuring a lineup of new products at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. The updated Ladylux L2 kitchen faucet portfolio, brilliant new finishes in the Essence collection and the versatile GrohSafe 3.0 pressure balance rough valve and matching trims showcase the aesthetics and performance of German design and engineering, a difference you can truly feel.
Legendary Ladylux Gets a Fresh Look and Technology to Clean More Effectively in the Kitchen
With the latest release in the legendary Ladylux portfolio, the Ladylux L2 Kitchen Faucet Collection, consumers do not have to sacrifice function for beauty. A new dramatic sleek, minimalist design is combined with advanced features to deliver the efficiency and convenience essential in today’s kitchens in impressive style.
Ladylux L2 makes everyday kitchen tasks even easier with updated features like magnetic docking for easy, secure retraction and touch technology to start or stop the flow of water hands-free combined with functionality like triple and dual-spray toggle controls, allowing users to easily switch from regular to shower spray functions. For maximum cleaning power, the triple spray function incorporates the new, forceful Blade spray, which delivers ultimate cleaning performance while using 50 percent less water.
Each faucet is geometrically designed with a wide swivel radius for full sink coverage and uniquely suited to coordinate with an entire kitchen. The thin, cylindrical faucets feature a Comfort Height neck to minimize splashing and SpeedClean nozzle to prevent limescale buildup. Designed to meet the GROHE Zero guarantee, the body of the faucet does not add any lead or nickel into the drinking water because of the advanced inner-water guides. A durable coating maintains cleanliness and a lustrous finish.
Another unique addition to the Ladylux L2 family is the GROHE SmartControl faucet, which offers a minimalistic, no-lever, hands-free, push button on/off control for the ultimate modern kitchen.
The Ladylux L2 collection offers pull-down or pull-out spray faucets, prep sink faucet and a pot filler, and is available in StarLight Chrome and SuperSteel finishes to pair perfectly with any kitchen design.
Essence Colors Line Allows More Consumer Customization
To today’s consumer, the ability to customize reigns supreme. With a simple, clean, modern design and an extended range of unique finishes, the GROHE Essence Colors Collection of kitchen and bath fittings provides freedom of choice to discover and personalize the style of any environment.
Three new on-trend finishes are available in the complete Essence line, catering to today’s consumers seeking contemporary designs in a variety of finishes. Dynamic Hard Graphite pairs perfectly with pure white or blends with tone-on-tone environments and materials like concrete or light wood. Warm Polished Nickel combines organic elements that harmonize with stone, light concrete or marble. The modern yet vintage Brushed Cool Sunrise makes a statement that coordinates with dark, light or white interiors. These newest additions join the existing finish options of warm and worldly Brushed Nickel and bright Starlight Chrome.
State-of-the-art technology ensures that GROHE delivers exceptional quality finishes with unrivaled strength and scratch resistance to keep the faucet finish looking beautiful for decades. The physical vapor deposition (PVD) process ensures the surface is three times harder and ten times more scratch resistant.
The GROHE Essence collection is both technically and visually stunning, with each product coordinated perfectly in every single detail. Every element of the collection, which includes lavatory and kitchen faucets, bath and shower trim kits, shower heads, tub fillers and assorted accessories, effortlessly combine into a stylish, coherent whole. The extended range of unique, made-to-last finishes gives consumers even more options to fit every design and environment in the kitchen and bath.
GrohSafe 3.0 Delivers Superior Versatility and Durability
GROHE developed the GrohSafe 3.0 pressure balance rough valve with improved design features and materials make every installation easier through superior versatility and durability, while demonstrating the brand’s commitment to providing intelligent solutions and being on the forefront of product development to meet the needs of the changing market.
Design elements of the rough valve include a small valve body that fits into tight spaces, a flat back for sturdy, quick installation and pre-installed flush plug that allows hot and cold to be flushed simultaneously. DZR brass also provides a corrosion-resistant valve that can be installed in areas with high chloride and pH levels without worry.
Four connection options make for adaptable installs, allowing plumbers to choose the right connection for the right piping. New connections include PEX elbow connections that allow valves to be easily rotated for supply lines from floor or ceiling and Stub-Out connections featuring half-inch brass stub-outs integrated into the valve body to easily connect press-connect fittings to inlets and outlets.
To ensure a clean, flush installation with no visible screws to obstruct its polished appearance, matching trims have concealed mounting plates, creating a clean, sophisticated look. GROHE’s premium all-metal trims fit flawlessly on the GrohSafe 3.0 valve and are designed for smooth operation and precise temperature adjustments for an upgraded bath and shower experience. The one-piece pressure balance cartridge provides enhanced scald protection due to a ceramic pressure balancing spool, while durable ceramic discs ensure smooth mixing of hot and cold while resisting lime and calcium build-up and harsh water conditions, providing leak-free operation over the life of the faucet.
