Eco-Friendly and Luxury Designs: You Can Have Both In Your Bathroom

When you’re improving your bathroom, you don’t have to choose between luxurious or eco-friendly designs. Porcelanosa specializes in environmentally friendly product designs, and has created many products that you can easily incorporate into your bathroom’s design.

The Forma faucet incorporates cold water opening technology with its design.  The lever can only be moved to the left, allowing temperature control. This results in the use of hot water only when really necessary, with the corresponding automatic energy saving. In the center position the tap only supplies cold water, which prevents the continued use of heaters and reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The standard model of the Forma faucet is available with a special flow rate limiter integrated into the spout of the single lever tap – allowing constant water savings. A conventional tap offers approximately 3 gallons per minute, and Forma‘s rate limiter reduces water consumption by nearly 60% to 1 1/3 gallons per minute.

The HOTELS handset features a simple way to use less water, less energy and less CO2 by using the AIR ECO system. With this system, consumption can be reduced by 10% and jet quality is improved. Compared to conventional shower technology, one typically has the impression of an even higher volume of water. How does the innovative AIR ECO concept work, and how does the beneficial air penetrate the shower water? In products that utilize the AIR ECO system, air is sucked in through a hole in the center of the shower head and mixed with the outgoing water. A liter of water corresponds to 3 liters of air. The result is that while the volume of water droplets is increased, they have in turn a lighter and softer effect. Instead of the typical water stream, millions of voluminous raindrops caress the skin and the body is completely wrapped in a pleasant film of water and air.

The URBAN PROJECT one-piece toilet meets strict flushing performance guidelines established by the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program. WaterSense, a partnership program by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services.  Upgrading to efficient WaterSense labeled products can help us save billions of gallons of water in the country every year.
