Bathroom equipment Increasingly stylish and more efficient

Hairdryers:

Several accessories complete the bathroom equipment. With encouragement from the “wellness” phenomenon, the scale is becoming an element that is increasingly requested. Like all other “wellness room” elements, the scale should be both attractive and efficient. Precise and aesthetic, the glass models such as Digit Scale by JVD are at the cutting edge in this area. The discrete, but inevitable clothes hooks, soap holders, toilet paper holders, or brush holders are also adapting to the transformation that is taking place in the bathroom. The Nemox range by Geesa, guaranteed 12 years and distributed by Manusec, offers a more modern design. For those who prefer a classic design, the “Accessoires de bain” range by Agfraceo remains faithful to basic and timeless design. Another product that is making progress: open wastepaper baskets for bathrooms. In order to palliate the problem of garbage bags spilling over, Manusec offers a basket from Brabantia that integrates a bag that is dissimulated by a hoop for easier maintenance. For pedal operated cans, Brabantia presents its Retrobin range that offers better product resistance with its rounded cover.Although innovations are rare in the world of hairdryers, there has been a great deal of progress. Designers have first and foremost concentrated their efforts on the design of their products. While the hand-held model, which is more aesthetic, remains the privilege of upscale hotels, major efforts have been made to make wall hairdryers integrate new room designs as well as possible. With two leitmotifs: sobriety and elegance. More compact, the Premium hairdryer from Valera, distributed by Manusec, arrives on the market this month and is available not only in white, but also with a black and silver casing. With an integrated concentrator and mobile support, the model called Eden from JVD is also trendier. The specialists also stress better performance without increasing energy consumption. The 1200 W dryer has become the standard and the Premium, Eden and even the Elite by Agfraco are all available with this power. The latest trend: 2 or 3-in-1. Other functions are being added to the original purpose of the hair dryer. Thus, Agfraco’s Elite model has a shaver socket or a safety timer. Self-sanitizing thanks to Nanosilver technology, the Premium hair dryer from Valera may integrate an ionizer, a shaver socket, a standard European socket, mirror, clock or nightlight. Mirrors: An essential piece of bathroom equipment, the mirror becoming more widespread. Prices are falling and some 2* hotels are beginning to equip themselves with small makeup mirrors. And that even if the lit makeup mirror, such as Manusec’s Aliséo model, remains mostly an upscale product. A great innovation for this type of product: a low voltage power supply thanks to LED lighting. The Vision mirror from Agfraco offers this evolution that is both responsible and aesthetic. In fact, in addition to lower consumption, LED lamps are less bulky than halogen bulbs. This technological advance thus allows a product that is more refined and more aesthetic. As they become more design- oriented, the shapes of mirrors are also changing. JVD should thus launch a square mirror in 2008.The bathtub: A 20- year-old manufacturer, SFA has launched its balneotherapy solution just for the hotel industry: “Hotel Collection”. This hydro-massage system is available for 22 types of bathtubs and is suited to the hotel industry. The client does not need to read any instructions in order to set it. An On/Off switch starts a fifteen-minute massage program offering a variety of massages including stop & go, waves, sequenced air and water massage, zoning. As the different types of hydromassage succeed one another, the chromo function starts automatically, coloring the bathwater eight different ways. At the end of the program, an automatic disinfection system dries the bathtub leaving it bacteria free.Accessories: Several accessories complete the bathroom equipment.
