Triton empowers retailers with new wireless digital mixer
Triton Showers has launched its Host wireless digital mixer, helping the country's retailers to tap into a growing market with a unit designed specifically for British homes.
With digital showers proving increasingly popular, Triton's newest thermostatic mixer allows end-users to benefit from the very latest technology and enjoy a truly personalised experience. The contemporary wireless panel is available in black, white or cloud grey, with a clear digital display that allows users to choose one of three pre-set programmes, or select their own custom settings using 16-temperature and 10 flow steps.
What's more, Triton's Affordable Style mix and match accessory items offer a wide range of style options, meaning Host can be combined with a number of fixed showerheads, secondary handsets and holders. Alternatively, all in one packs are available, equipped with the most popular combinations for hassle free selection.
Where installation is concerned, the manufacturer's flagship product has been developed to provide complete flexibility. The unit is suitable for every type of application, from brand new bathrooms to replacing a previous digital shower, and comes with a choice of one or two outlets, all with push-fit fittings.
Packed with Host technology, the unit's wireless controls also allow for second-fix, precision siting either on the wall of choice, in the centre of a tile, or on the grout line.
An optional wireless remote boasting a warm-up function is portable for bedside tables or the supplied magnetic wall mount, providing an unrivalled shower experience. This warms the water up before switching off, so it's ready to eliminate those cold shocks - ideal if the combi boiler is far away from the shower.
For even better performance, Host promises superior flow rates than a standard brass mixer when used with a gravity-fed cylinder and more precise temperature control when paired with a combi or mains fed cylinder.
Triton has even introduced its digital brushless quiet motor technology into the pumped model, ensuring the model runs silently without compromising on pressure. Not only does this increase energy efficiency, but the mixer box can be wired locally to a fused spur.
"As the digital market goes from strength to strength, we recognise how important it is that the industry keeps up with ever-changing customer demand," remarks Steve Saunders, senior technical manager at Triton Showers. "Host gives retailers access to a versatile, high spec, product that will help them to take advantage of this growth while providing a welcome additional cash margin."
