Want to enjoy showering without any risk of tripping over? We tell you what you need to bear in mind when it comes to floor-level showers. Whether you are undertaking a new build or renovating your bathroom. This contemporary solution offers you added convenience and creates more visual space in the bathroom. You have numerous options for creating your own customised design, as indicated in our planning guide.
Modern architecture in a feel-good bathroom that is accessible to all is a concept that is embodied in a bathroom with no barriers. Surface areas that merge into each other create more elbow room and visual spaciousness, particularly in small bathrooms. With the floor-level shower, you can add a designer touch which will notably increase the value of your apartment or property. Are you also contemplating making the bathroom future-proof? No-step access to an enjoyable shower is a safe choice for young and old alike.
Thanks to cutting-edge bathroom technology, the floor-level shower can be achieved in practically any setting. If you are undertaking a new build, you should discuss your requirements at an early stage with the architect or bathroom planner. This makes it possible to budget for the required floor structure and the position of the drains in good time. Do you dream of having underfloor heating in the bathroom, to create a warm feel-good ambience at all times? You need to make a decision on this as early as possible. When is an expert needed? During a renovation when swapping "new for old" or installing a "shower instead of a bathtub".
The accessible solution is also ideal when refurbishing old buildings. The bathroom professional first checks the construction-related conditions – and whether there is enough play in the screed – before deciding on one of the innovative, space-saving waste systems. Even with an extra-shallow shower tub, which merges seamlessly into the floor after being installed, accessible showers can be implemented and enjoyed practically anywhere.
For floor-level planning, you have various options available to you:
If the shower is in an alcove or corner, the frameless glass partition, which gives the bathroom maximum visual transparency, is ideal. Or opt for a “walk-in” solution. This variant does away with doors, completely integrating the shower area into the accessible bathroom.
At hansgrohe you will find strong, reliable waste systems for the shower tub. This is important for large feel-good showers such as Rainmaker, Raindance or the overhead showers. The drains in the shower are easy to install, technically sophisticated and highly efficient. Thus, for example, Raindrain 90 XXL from hansgrohe achieves an exceptionally high drain performance of up to 51 litres per minute. A positive side-effect for you: the “fast-flowing water” reliably rinses any dirt away. So there’s nothing to stop you enjoying your shower. hansgrohe does not currently offer any waste systems for freely designed shower areas without a bathtub.
