Ad­van­tix Vario Shower Chan­nel

Domus - - NEWS -

Viega, founded in At­ten­dorn, Ger­many, in 1899, has launched its Ad­van­tix Vario Shower Chan­nel that is the first tai­lor-made shower chan­nel, made to mea­sure. Avail­able in L-shape or in a U-shape, three con­nect­ing el­e­ments lend it a high level of flex­i­bil­ity. It is the first chan­nel that can be short­ened ex­actly to the re­quired length. On the other hand, even at a low in­stal­la­tion height, it has an im­pres­sive drainage ca­pac­ity of 24 litres per minute.

For its flex­i­bil­ity, min­i­mal­ism, and top per­for­mance, the in­no­va­tive shower chan­nel de­signed by Arte­fakt In­dus­triekul­tur, the Darm­stadt de­sign agency, has been recog­nised by many pres­ti­gious en­ti­ties. It won the Red Dot Award for high de­sign qual­ity, and the Ger­man De­sign Award 2013. The wa­ter in­let of the shower chan­nel grate, which is only 20 mil­lime­tres wide, is cen­trally ad­justed, and made of stain­less steel. Stain­less steel sur­faces are avail­able in highly pol­ished and brushed matt fin­ish. The drain is de­lib­er­ately con­cealed ow­ing to the sub­tle de­sign of the shower chan­nel. Af­ter the lay­ing of the tiles, only a nar­row drainage gap is vis­i­ble, op­tion­ally sur­rounded with pol­ished tile edges or a tiled bor­der rail. The ba­sic unit made from spe­cial chem­i­cal­re­sis­tant plas­tic is open on both sides where the grate can be short­ened to the de­sired size and us­ing the sup­plied saw guide, it is quick and safe to shorten on the build­ing site. El­e­gant caps stylishly con­ceal the in­ter­faces of the grid. Fine-tun­ing the ad­just­ments of the grate are also pos­si­ble us­ing the in-built height-ad­justable sup­ports. Depend­ing upon the in­stal­la­tion, the drainage ca­pac­ity is 0.4 to 0.8 litres per sec­ond and can be dou­bled by com­bin­ing two shower chan­nels. The new shower chan­nel is also fit­ted with a self-clean­ing drain. Its spe­cial con­struc­tion and the flow speed of the drainage wa­ter means that there is no op­por­tu­nity for dirt to col­lect in the body of the drain. This then al­lows prac­ti­cal, fuss-free bath­room de­sign.
