New multi-outlet recessed shower valves from Crosswater
Valves that can control more than one water outlet in the bathroom are a growing trend in UK bathrooms and allow hand and overhead showers and sometimes even a bath filler too, to be operated from just one fitting. Crosswater has developed innovative new products to meet the call for high-style, thermostatically controlled multi-outlet, easy to install fittings.
The Crosswater 1501 thermostatic valve can control two outlets and has separate diverter and temperature controls so is very easy to use. Designed for fast and easy installation, this concealed valve needs a wall depth of just 75mm. It can be easily serviced from the front.
The Crosswater 1701 (pictured top) valve is available in a number of popular Crosswater ranges and comes with an integral pencil style hand shower and can control an overhead shower or bath filler. It has separate diverter and temperature controls and can also be serviced from the front.
Most versatile of all is the Crosswater 2500 valve (pictured bottom) which can be used to control three outlets with only two controls - an overhead shower, a hand shower and overflow style bath filler.
Installers will appreciate the fact that this valve features integral double check so there is no need to fit a DCV in the system. The valve is WRAS approved to TMV2. The 2500 valve saves fitting time and is easily serviceable from the front. Of solid brass construction, it has ceramic disc control for smooth operation and no drips. It is designed to work optimally with Crosswater shower heads and works from 0.2 bar pressure upwards.
"This innovative advance in technology makes the 2500 the very best valve to install with a bath filler that requires a DCV and overhead and hand showers," says Group Chairman for Crosswater, David Hance. "This saves installation time and reduces costs for the consumer."
