Abode's new Pronteau 3 in 1 steaming hot water tap come in two designs and five finishes
Abode's new Pronteau 3 in 1 steaming hot water tap comes in two designs and five fabulous finishes: Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Graphite, Matt Black and Urban Copper, to smarten up any kitchen or office environment.
As with all new products from Abode, the technical and design side is hard to beat. The new mixertaps offer all the benefits of a standard kitchen mixer but with the addition of steaming hot filtered water available instantly at 98 degrees C.
They incorporate a new, compact two-litre, UK-manufactured ProBoil2 boiler, which sits neatly in the cupboard under the sink, all at affordable prices.
The filter ensures that water hardness is reduced, removes odours and bad tastes and extends the life of the boiler, too.
The taps are based upon the nation's favourite tap design and will complement any kitchen environment. They can be retrospectively fitted as a replacement tap and are also ideal for new build and/or the refurbishment market.
Via the aesthetically balanced monobloc design, the right handle is for everyday hot and cold water which features an energy-saving cold start valve and by pushing the left hand lever down and pulling forward, the steaming hot water is activated. The further forward the lever is turned, the greater the flow.
Two styles of tap are of solid brass construction featuring an insulated spout which is 360 degrees rotational for ease of use. The ProStream has a distinctive swan neck spout while the ProStyle features a quad style spout and both come in all five of the exciting new finishes.
Quick and simple installation is the essence of the new Pronteau 3 IN 1 collection. They have been designed for home installation without the need for an engineer and everything required is delivered to the customer in one box. Abode has also set up a dedicated customer service team plus experienced engineers for extra support.
The launch is rounded off with a fully illustrated brochure, marketing support package, in-store display incentives, point of sale material, advertising and PR campaigns plus a new revamped website.
