Kohler, one of the world’s largest bathroom specialists, is on track to achieve its Net Zero carbon footprint by 2035 – a programme that promotes sustainability while delivering innovative new products to our bathrooms.
The company’s 50 manufacturing plants, spread across six continents, have each reduced carbon emissions and solid waste by 3% per annum since 2008 but it is probably the planet-conscious products we are now seeing in our bathrooms that are attracting the most attention.
Kohler’s toilets have reduced their water usage from 37 litres a flush in the 1930s to 4.5/3 litres in today’s dual flush models. More exciting – in terms of both aesthetics and experience – are the new Katalyst showerheads using Kohler’s patented air induction technology.
Katalyst showerheads cleverly inject air into the water flow – so each droplet of water feels bigger and performs better. By introducing one litre of air to every five litres of water the user feels as though they are having a drenching shower – and in the process enjoys all the associated soothing and relaxing benefits.
There are a number of shower designs using Katalyst technology that ensures all needs are met.
The RainCan is a simple, yet boldly stylish overhead shower in round or square configuration in a choice of 200mm and 250mm sizes. Designed to create a powerful, thoroughly enveloping shower experience its enhanced spray nozzle configuration delivers complete coverage with full, heavy water droplets.
The Rain Duet Shower Column is a good option for families, combining an overhead 200mm square or round showerhead with a handshower on a 1.5m hose. The latter is ideal for smaller children and hair washing.
And finally the Loure shower column. This new release shower column sports sleek, contemporary aesthetics combining a square, 250mm overhead showerhead with a hand-held shower wand.
All of the Katalyst showering tapware appliances listed above utilise Kohler’s air injection technology to deliver drenching, all-enveloping showers while using only 9 litres of water a minute (3 star WELS rating). Each is made of solid brass with Kohler’s tarnish and corrosion resistant polished chrome finish.
