Plumbers' Merchant Graham reaps benefits of Saniflo Kinemagic display with free fitting and training
Saniflo UK - the country's leading designer and manufacturer of pumps, macerators and shower cubicles - is offering showrooms free fitting and product training with their first Kinedo Kinemagic display.
Graham, The Plumbers' Merchant, is already benefiting from the deal and finding the display of the Kinemagic results in more sales of the product.
Saniflo includes installation of the first display completely free of charge and conducts training for showroom staff, plumbers and installers either during the installation or at a later date.
Derek Charge, southern regional showroom manager and responsible for Graham's showroom estate, recently specified two new displays - a Kinemagic Serenity + and a Kineduo bath - for the Evesham branch. The Saniflo technical team delivered and fitted the cubicle demonstrating the intuitive design and simplicity of assembly.
Derek says: "We have elderly, less able and regular customers coming into the showroom looking for modern, quality products to use in practical situations. Some are futureproofing their homes in advance and some have an immediate need.
"The stylish Kinedo cubicles provide the solution to so many situations. For some, however, the appeal of a bath is still strong and the Kineduo with its opening door, seat, grab rails and a wide range of configurations is a stunning replacement for their standard bath.
"The common denominator is minimum hassle. These customers do not want huge disruption; but still want designer style. The team from Saniflo has been exceptionally helpful in ensuring my team can adequately explain all the options to our customers and I believe this is why we are successful at selling these products."
The displays are so successful that Graham's has subsequently placed orders for additional showrooms including Enfield, Eastbourne, Abingdon and Poole.
The Kinemagic Serenity + is designed to fit into exactly the same spot as a bath and offers low cubicle entry, attractive hand rails, fold-down seats and a magnetic shower for ease of use. Installation is swift and hassle-free with no need for tiling, grout or silicone, offering considerable savings in new tiles and labour costs. A Kinedo shower cubicle can be up and running in less than a day.
The Kineduo is a walk-in shower bath that combines bath and shower much like any other and occupies the same footprint. The benefit is for users with limited access who like to retain a bath in their house, but will usually have a shower. The low entry door enables safe access to the shower and fold down seat with practical grab handles to help. Designed as a direct replacement for an existing bath it is a great looking family bath that doubles up as a practical solution for family members with limited mobility.
A new Kineduo configurator is proving to be a useful tool for showrooms, installers and customers alike. Available on a tablet, smart phone or computer, the user can experiment with the specification; adding or deleting features until the perfect bath is found.
