The bar mixer with the Exe factor: The new Exe Bar Mixer from Triton
Triton has launched the new Exe Bar Mixer to offer installers one new mixer shower with a choice of two different handle options. In keeping with Triton's ethos for easy to install products, the Exe Bar Mixer has been designed to make the installation process simple with the supplied dog leg fittings providing flexibility of the pipe centres between 130mm to 170mm.
Triton's Exe Bar Mixer shower is available with one of two handle design options. The Exe Standard Handle is smooth to turn, whilst the contemporary design will fit well with most existing bathroom designs. Alternatively the Exe Lever Handle is suitable for all applications and user abilities. The extended paddle design gives added ease of use and is simple to operate with one finger, providing an inclusive showering environment for those who may require assisted showering.
The Exe Bar Mixer is compatible with all domestic water systems and requires only 0.1 bar minimum supply pressure to operate making it an ideal choice for low and high pressure systems.
For added installation simplicity, Triton's latest mixer shower boasts one screw riser rail brackets with adjustable fixings centres to ensure the unit is compatible with many existing riser rail fixings.
The thermostatic control ensures the shower delivers a constantly regulated water temperature within +/-2 degrees C and shuts off automatically if either the cold or hot water supply fails. The unit has also achieved WRAS approval which ensures it meets water regulations.
Another safety feature is a maximum temperature limiter with an override button, allowing users to confidently control the shower.
"Our new Exe Bar Mixer was developed to offer installers a highly versatile product, introducing one simple unit with the option of two different handle solutions," says Lorna Fellowes, managing director at Triton. "Innovative design features such as one screw riser rail brackets with adjustable centres ensure the Exe Bar Mixer is simple to install.
"In addition, tactile soft push handles will appeal to users of all ages and abilities and thermostatic control will give added peace of mind to homeowners."
The product is covered by a five year parts and labour guarantee as standard, offering complete peace of mind for installers and end users alike.
