Franke adds three new tap designs to its popular Minerva boiling water tap offer
Reflecting the growing popularity and demand for boiling water taps as the 'It Gadget ' for the kitchen, Franke has added a stylish trio of new designs to its Minerva tap range.
Minerva Helix, Minerva Mondial and the Minerva Irena join the Minerva Original to offer a broader choice of styles and material finishes that will work in any traditional, modern or contemporary kitchen style and give retailers more choice when it comes to kitchen design.
The new Minerva Helix and Minerva Mondial models are constructed from solid stainless steel giving a premium specification and build quality. The Minerva Irena, like the Minerva Original, is available in polished chrome finish.
All Franke Minerva taps offer 3-in-1 technology where the hot, cold and instant boiling water are dispensed from a single tap solution, ensuring a sleek design and saving space around the sink area. I00˚C boiling water is delivered instantly at the point of use, with the maximum energy efficiency as only the water required is used.
The built-in safety button featured on all Minerva taps prevents accidental boiling water activation. Franke Minerva taps can be fitted new or retrospectively and require a single standard -sized 35mm tap hole. The cleverly designed hot water tank is slim enough to fit neatly underneath the base unit behind a standard 150mm cabinet plinth, helping to save precious space in kitchen cupboards.
Says Steve Rutter, marketing manager at Franke:
"Consumers love gadgets in the kitchen that combine stylish design with practicality and have the cachet of owning one. A boiling water tap is the IT Gadget to have, desired for the statement it makes about the user's lifestyle and design appreciation, as much as the undoubted functional benefits it offers. I can only see this market growing and our broader choice of Minerva styles will help retailers take advantage of this."
