hansgrohe sBox

Installation and application examples for the smart solution underneath the sink

The innovative sBox tidies up the kitchen. It forms an integral part of the new hansgrohe sink combi unit and ensures that the hose for your pull-out tap can slide smoothly. The inconspicuous box is installed under the sink. Check out how to correctly position and install the sBox in any situation here.

Controlled, safe hose routing underneath the sink

A hand spray has lots of advantages. It offers flexibility and freedom of movement, and makes filling up large pots very easy, for example. What happens to the hose when the kitchen tap is not in use? It hangs out in the floor unit, which is precisely where waste separation systems or drawers are situated to keep things clutter-free. For those who love to keep things tidy, hansgrohe offers a smart solution in the form of the sBox. The hose slides neatly, smoothly and really quietly within the housing of the sBox.

All-in-one system ensures safe planning

The sBox is part of the hansgrohe C71 sink combi unit. A combi unit is therefore ready for installation with all the necessary accessories supplied, and can be integrated into the worktop straight away. Since it is supplied as a complete package, all the components are perfectly coordinated: the tap and sink, even the spout and sBox. In the pull-out spout and sBox combination, you get an operating radius of up to 76 cm. It is not possible to purchase the sBox on its own.

Is the sBox also suitable for my kitchen?

Yes. Even if you have a small kitchen, if your sink unit is a corner unit or if the waste system takes up lots of space in the floor unit. The 3 cm deep, 16 cm wide and 52 cm high Box fits into all floor units from a cabinet height of at least 74 cm. Even if you have a low cabinet body, the sBox is still the perfect choice. Just add the sBox F12 compensating element (article number #43333000) to the package.

Ideally, the hansgrohe sBox is installed directly below the kitchen tap. Four mounting elements that can be moved individually provide secure support.

Ideally, the sBox is installed directly below the kitchen tap. Two of the brackets are located on the bottom of the sBox and are screwed to the base or to the rear panel of the floor unit. Two other brackets are located further up, and are either screwed to or suspended on the rear panel. The mounting elements can be moved and rotated 360°. This makes it possible for fast, easy installation. Thanks to its high degree of flexibility, the hansgrohe sBox can be installed in several ways. It is also easy to use in the following installation scenarios:

This is the installation scenario if, for example, the rear panel is slightly offset. The sBox can be installed tilted by +/- 20°.

Obstacles on the floor or a rear panel that is shifted forwards

If installation is not possible directly below your kitchen tap (due to obstacles), or if a rear panel is shifted forwards, then the sBox is installed slightly tilted. It can be tilted backwards or forwards. To do this, align all the brackets to the front. If you want to clean behind the sBox, you can easily clip it out of its brackets. The maximum recommended tilt angle is +/- 20°.

Obstacles in the sink cabinet pose no problem: the sBox can also be installed tilted sideways (+/- 20°). The flexible brackets make this possible.

Waste pull-out unit, waste systems or difficult-to-access angle valves

Do you have a waste system under the sink, which leaves no more space? No problem! Simply tilt the sBox to the side. The brackets can be screwed to the base, sides or rear panel as needed. So you can easily access the waste pull-out unit, waste system or angle valve in future too. The maximum recommended tilt angle is +/- 20°.

This installation scenario comes into play when there are corner sinks or sinks with draining boards. The brackets here are all screwed to the side.

Corner sinks, sinks with draining boards or sinks with tap holes that are shifted to the side

If you are faced with one of these installation scenarios, you should install the sBox offset on the side panel. All the brackets are screwed to the side. You should avoid parallel displacement of the sBox. (If displacement is required for the installation, there must not be more than 30 mm between the tap and outlet axis of the sBox.)
