AKW, the UK’s leading manufacturer of inclusive bathrooms has introduced iShower, a new generation range of electric showers that make installation fast, simple and flexible. With options to suit all budgets and needs, this modern, stylish new range includes three units, iSure, iTherm and iCare – the world’s first Bluetooth® enabled smart electric shower.
The iShower range has been designed to be suitable for all styles of bathroom with fast, simple and flexible installation. Each shower unit has a size and shape that makes it easy to retrofit. Able to cover almost every manufacturer’s model, iShower units are able to hide the footprint of the previous shower thereby reducing, or in some cases removing the requirement of any extra works or tiling. Each shower within the range is also compatible with existing cable and pipework.
Each iShower unit also comes with a market-leading three-year guarantee. With eight electrical/water entry points and left or right hand wiring, the iShower range provides maximum fitting flexibility, eliminating wiring complications or positioning limitations. Every unit has separate, easy to operate, flow and temperature controls and comes in 8.5kw or 9.5kw, IP45 safety rated options, with iCare also available in a 10.5kw therapeutic option.
With unsurpassed levels of controllability, iCare is a sophisticated yet simple to use, BEAB Care and RNIB certified shower. A world first, this shower gives users and carers the additional capability to operate it via a wireless remote control or smartphone app, allowing control of both temperature and flow. Additional safety features to control water temperature and usage, along with sleek rounded corners and a sensory user interface make iCare the unrivalled solution for households with varying living requirements, providing a seamless mix of safety, style and smart technology.
iCare also boasts a wireless interface between the shower and AKW digital waste pumps, with the ability to fit the wireless interface discreetly away. Replacing the traditional flow meter on the pump connection, the interface is able to communicate directly with the pump unit and thereby reduce the need for electrical wiring between shower and pump. Available in white and silver, the iCare can be supplied with a matched shower PCB and pump interface box as standard.
iTherm showers are designed with a modern LED temperature and flow display and like iCare, include Phased Shutdown to flush any residual water for reduced lime scale and a longer unit life. With white dials set into a deep gloss surround, iSure showers are the perfect solution for replacement installations, with advanced fitting innovations and a handy fitting template.
The stylish minimalist design of this innovative shower range is also reflected in its accessories, with iCare, iTherm and iSure all available with co-ordinating shower kits.
Backed by comprehensive technical after-sales support, iShower units are available now from AKW and leading merchants, or for further information visit www.akw-ltd.co.uk/ishower
