Mixer specialist Hansgrohe is introducing unprecedented freedom of movement to the kitchen in the form of its Metris Select kitchen mixer. Its Select button means that the water can be turned on and off even while you're on the go, without impeding the flow of work. This proves that fun and convenience can indeed go hand in hand, even when tackling kitchen chores.
As with conventional single lever mixers, with Metris Select you also turn on the water flow at the handle and set the required temperature and water amount. However, the user can subsequently terminate the flow of water on and off via the Select button which is located on the front of the spout.
The lever handle remains open, with the water volume and water temperature preset. The fact that the button is large, with a very legible on/off symbol, means that you can also turn the water jet on and off using the back of your hand or your elbow. And you do not need electricity or any extra equipment in your floor unit to be able to enjoy this added convenience. The technology behind Select is purely mechanical. A newly developed shut-off valve closes and opens the water flow at the touch of a button.
