This valve is totally unique in the industry and demonstrates our unwavering commitment to sustainable production. The shower valve or as we refer to it, the ‘engine’, took over six years to develop and has been on a long-term test for nearly a decade. The results of the test have been independently reported by Greenwich University, and we’re proud to say that the results more than exceeded our expectations.
Dr Charles May, Materials Course Director, at Greenwich University, has recommended that as a result of this test, the guarantee period for the Kanth shower valve engine should be between 20 and 30 years.
Producing a shower valve engine that will last a lifetime has only been possible due to the development and precision of the manufacturing process and material composition.
The production process starts with the material. Each of our engines is machined out of a solid brass ingot with a material composition specifically formulated by Kanth and our partners Smiths Metal Centres Limited. This firmly sets us apart from our competitors, as 99% of current shower valves are sand castings with no or little thought given to the material make up.
Using computer-controlled machines, each ingot is precisely milled, drilled, bored and polished internally to extremely tight tolerances to create the valve engine.
The resulting combination of our material composition and manufacturing process provides multiple benefits only foundwithin a Kanth valve:
Once our shower valve engine has been installed, you will never need to take it out of the wall again. Its unique design allows both easy access for servicing the shower valve and to conveniently update if ever required.
If you decide in five or six years that your bathroom is looking tired and in need of updating, you simply replace the tiles and everything else that’s cosmetic. Our shower valve engine stays firmly in place concealed within the wall. The front plate and handles (the trim kit) can be purchased separately so should you decide for a change in style, colour or simply a refresh – you can do so relatively inexpensively. We design all our trim kits to be interchangeable for this precise reason.
In the past you may have needed to purchase a new shower every four or five years. With a Kanth shower valve, you will never need to purchase and install a shower valve again – so it’s goodbye to the throwaway society!
We provide a 25-year guarantee on each shower valve, compared to most manufacturers who offer no more than a five-year guarantee. Our engine is truly in a class of its own.
