Shower manufacturer Bristan has launched a new wireless, digitally controlled thermostatic mixer shower that offers design and added functionality for consumers, while being simple and easy to install.
The Artisan Evo Digital features digital technology for added functionality and control, and a stylish design, while offering ease of installation and great value for money.
Available from January 2015, the shower features a digital control whereby the homeowner can easily select the precise temperature they prefer for their shower. It also includes an eco-flow option, as well as a heat up mode to ensure the water is at the desired temperature before the person gets into the shower.
For the installer, ease of installation is a big benefit. The shower valve, being digital, doesn’t need to be fitted in the showering area and can be positioned up to 10 metres from the controller. This means the installer can choose to fit the slim-line valve in an airing cupboard, under the bath or in a loft space if it’s more convenient.
Style is also accounted for. The controller, available in black or white, has a minimalist, sleek, modern look and can be positioned away from the showering area if desired. This flexibility means greater design freedom; the homeowner can, for example, choose to opt for an area of uninterrupted tiling, creating a ‘wet room’ look.
Furthermore, in Bristan’s ongoing commitment to driving digital, Artisan Evo features the Layar augmented reality browser. With Layar, users can gain access to digital content via their smart phones including a how to guide, installation instructions and a selection of product photography. In this way, Layar provides more information – an additional layer – making the purchasing decision easier.
Artisan Evo Digital comes with a choice of an adjustable riser rail or ceiling head in chrome (with faceplates and spray nozzles colour coordinated to the controllers). The product has a five-year guarantee and the backing of Bristan Care, Bristan’s technical support and dedicated after care service.
