WRAS approval secured for Abode 4 in 1 steaming hot water taps
All Abode 4 in 1 steaming hot water taps, filters and boilers now have full WRAS approval, giving developers, designers and retailers complete peace of mind across the entire range.
WRAS is the UK standard against waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the water supply, with approval meaning that these Abode Pronteau and Proboil products comply with the necessary regulations for new build and refurbishment projects.
Catering for every need in the modern kitchen, with styles and finishes to suit every decor, Abode Pronteau mixers deliver lime scale-free filtered cold and 80-98º filtered steaming hot water, on demand.
At 98º Pronteau delivers water in a structured and controlled way, eliminating spitting and spurting and not only complies with WRAS requirements, but also meets Part G building regulations which stipulate that 100º should never be used in new build projects in the UK. Abode Pronteau 4IN1 taps also feature a patented child safe Hotkey function to prevent accidental harm. Hot water will not be dispensed unless the Hotkey is placed in proximity to the front of the tap. The 360º spout always remains cool and safe to touch, as the hot water runs through a central channel of the spout.
Also WRAS approved is the ProBoil3, an intelligent and compact, self-diagnostic boiler with a 3kW element delivering over 50 cups an hour. It also features an automatic eco-mode ensuring that daily running costs remain low. The tank, which sits comfortably under the sink, is manufactured from stainless steel to avoid tainted water tastes from copper or plastics.
