Cruising with Hansgrohe mixers and showers that feature avant-garde technology
Products from Hansgrohe feature in state-of-the-art cruise ships all over the world. Out on the high seas, it is important for guests to be able to count on technical reliability, water-saving technologies and the ultimate in convenience. The Quantum of the Seas, from shipping company Royal Caribbean (RCI), is a floating miracle with mixers from Schiltach on board. The luxury liner offers its more than 4,100 passengers technological innovations, along with a full programme of entertainment, and it also sets standards with its very latest eco-technologies and enhanced energy efficiency. Since the autumn of 2014, the 348 m long ocean liner has been setting sail from its home port of New York, heading mainly for the Caribbean.
The ship's designers have provided guests with added convenience in many areas. These include network technology on all decks, fast internet and modern bathrooms featuring Hansgrohe products. The Quantum of the Seas offers a modern showering experience with Ecostat Comfort. The thermostatic mixer was specifically tailored to meet customer requirements at the Axor manufacturing department. Adjustment is intuitive thanks to clear markings, offering added convenience for the mix of nationalities on board. Metal handles also make for a high-quality haptic experience. The Croma Vario 100 hand shower is particularly resource-efficient, with a flow rate limited to 9 l/min.
At the wash basins in the 2,094 cabins, Metris single lever mixers with a maximum
5 l/min. flow guarantee economical water consumption. Electronic mixers in the public restrooms are efficient and exceptionally hygienic to boot. The Metris mixer was specifically tested for use at the wash basins in the Vitality salon: the Hansgrohe ComfortZone test provided data pertinent to combining the mixer with the custom-made wash basins. Thanks to this testing at Hansgrohe, the basin architecture could be optimally adapted. In the case of the Metris bathroom mixers, the specific room geometry in some of the cabin bathrooms meant that additional special solutions were needed. The pull rod was therefore moved from the right-hand side to the left, to enable trouble-free operation. Detailed effort to guarantee a smooth voyage.
