The brand new GROHE FeatherControl cartridge brings joystick control to a whole new level. Using state-of-the-art coated ceramic discs and an innovative sealing, the GROHE engineers created a joystick cartridge with a wider volume and temperature angle – for a more precise control – with the same silky smooth operation as our renowed GROHE SilkMove cartridge. Only GROHE mixers deliver the unique GROHE FeatherControl experience. The rich, smooth handling of our joystick-lever mixers perfectly expresses the quality and superiority of our brand.
The joystick handle of the tap is connected to the discs by a patented fixation system – GROHE uses solid metal for strength and durability. As the discs move over each other, they either block the water or allow it to pass through. Therefore the quality and machining of these parts will affect the performance of the tap.
GROHE is one of the world’s leading tap manufacturers. Our cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The polished mirror-like surface of the discs is then coated with a special lubricant for frictionless operation. And because our taps are designed withstand years of use, we incorporate micro-chambers of this lubricant within the cartridge – for a lifetime of maintenancefree operation.
As a result of this state-of-the art technology, our taps have an extra-wide operating angle, allowing you to exactly manage the water flow and temperature. Like all our technologies, GROHE FeatherControl is yet another perfect example of design and technology working in harmony to give you an enhanced water experience.
GROHE is one of the world’s leading faucet manufacturers and one of a few worldwide that manufacture their own advanced cartridges. Our cartridges are designed to withstand years of use – for a lifetime of maintenance-free operation.
In a large-scale endurance test for single-lever mixers, Germany’s TÜV SÜD examined the mechanical wear of products of nine renowned international manufacturers. Among the aspects tested were the operating forces in the movement of the lever, the breakaway torque after an extended rest period, the operating precision and the tightness. The result: GROHE is the clear test winner.
