Blu Bathworks goes digital
A fusion of the latest German technology and Blu’s Italian-made pure•2 and opus•2 faucet lines, Blu Bathworks’ new digital faucet collection leads the way – providing the utmost in user comfort and efficiency. By replacing mechanical operation with a simple touch-control digital interface, the new Electronica faucet range revolutionizes the way in which consumers interact with their faucets and showers.
The new Electronica collection of digital faucets offers the ultimate in modular design, allowing users to choose their preferred installation for basin, tub or shower – with in-wall and deck-mount options to facilitate design coordination – exclusively available in a polished chrome finish. The Electronica line is fully certified for the North Amercian market, and is CalGreen & AB1953 compliant.
Electronica’s digital interface can be preset to suit users’ preferred combination of temperature, flow rate and duration in order to customize the experience & promote water efficiency. The new system allows users to choose up to three individually saved settings, with a colored LED light ring that provides instant visual feedback indicating water temperature – ranging from red to yellow to blue.
Other features include a convenient cleaning mode, whereby holding the control until the light turns to green will turn off water supply for 60 seconds to allow the user to clean the surrounding areas without risk of getting wet.
For the showering or bathing experience, the Electronica collection includes thermostatic in-wall tubfillers, deck-mount tub-filler option and in-wall dual wheel shower control – all allowing for multiple device operation and user-programmable presets.
Electronica tapware and shower systems require a control mixer, which can be permanently installed – with a 236” cable length distance between rough-in and controller for the thermostatic shower and bathtub control mixer; 47” for the basin control mixer.
For the basin models, there is an optional wireless remote wheel operating device, which can control the basin mixer up to a distance of 26 feet away.
