Professional installers, renters and homeowners agree: when it comes to bath and shower renovations, they could do without the heavy construction. Enter the smart solution, GROHE’s Retro-Fit Shower System, which transforms an existing shower head installation with concealed pressure balance valve into a luxurious shower system without breaking the wall, all in under an hour.
The original Retro-Fit Shower System launched in 2012 and was extremely well received from designers, the professional plumbing community and consumers alike. Today, the collection has expanded to include three new models with new shower head, hand shower and shower arm options for users to choose from when selecting their Retro-Fit Shower System.
Launching this month, the new offerings are sure to be met with the same success. “There is such a demand for beautiful fixtures that are easy to install. By expanding the Retro-Fit collection, we are offering even more ways to customize and transform people’s shower experience,” says Cheryl Dixon, Head of Brand Trade and Marketing for GROHE, the world’s leading single-brand manufacturer and supplier of kitchen and bath fittings.
The added benefit of a hand shower, which has always been standard for GROHE Retro-Fit systems, is a luxury as well as a practical solution when bathing a small child, showering without wetting hair, giving pets a bath and washing around bandaged areas. Users have the option to utilize the hand shower and shower head separately in addition to combined functionality. “Usability is key to our design. These features cater to people’s personal preferences and shower needs,” advises Dixon. “With the latest Retro-Fit models being added to the line, there are more options for everyone.”
The new models also have the same benefits as the original Retro-Fit systems, which all feature a shower arm that can either be swiveled 45 degrees or fixed. All Retro-Fit systems also come complete with an adjustable sliding bar to allow for comfortable positioning of the hand shower, to be utilized during seated showering or for individual height variance. An optional 6-inch extension is also available to raise the height of the shower head, ideal for situations where the shower outlet is positioned too low.
