What is exposed installation and when does it makes sense

Exposed-installation thermostat and hand shower is a classic installation variant for the shower. In the bathtub, this also would include the tub filler. If you’ve always wanted a large overhead shower, then a shower system would be your first choice. With this state-of-the-art unit consisting of an exposed-installation thermostat, an overhead shower and a hand shower, the design and function all come from a single source.

“Renovation light” – easy to install to existing connections

Complete systems like these are attractive if you want to update your bathroom in an uncomplicated way: Simply add the exposed-installation products to existing connections. Because connection dimensions are standardized, all hansgrohe systems will fit into your bathroom. Even if you live in a rental unit, the upgrade is worthwhile, because exposed-installation faucets and thermostats as well as shower systems can be removed again quickly.

And how does concealed installation work? You save room if you integrate your thermostat(s) flush seamlessly into the wall, and it looks elegantly understated. This design minimalism gives you greater freedom of movement when showering or bathing. However, the installation is somewhat more complex, because the technology is installed behind the plaster in a base set. If this extra effort is okay for you take a look at our concealed-installation solutions here.
