Grohtherm 1000 – A Unique range of entry-level thermostats from GROHE
The popularity of thermostats continues to grow unabated as consumers increasingly appreciate the added comfort, safety, and savings offered by thermostatic mixers. In response to this growing fondness, GROHE has overhauled its range of entry-level thermostats which has a small but welcome improvement for added comfort in day-to-day use. First introduced back in 1995, this model has since been benefited from regular improvements and this latest incarnation Grohtherm 1000 is without doubt the best to date. It is flanked by the Grohtherm 800 with its compelling value proposition, and the modern Grohtherm 1000 Cosmopolitan M now sporting solid metal handles.
Best in class
Grohtherm 1000 comes packed with advanced technology to offer optimum functionality. Despite its diameter of only 43 mm, its slim body is all about stability and safety, incorporating as it does with the proprietary GROHE CoolTouch® technology. A newly developed insulating ring keeps the hot water away from the thermostat body, thereby preventing the surface from heating up. In addition, the thermostatic cartridge has been shifted towards the left, thereby shortening the hot water channel within the unit and ruling out the risk of scalding on the chrome surface.
Fresh design ideas
Grohtherm 1000's screw fixed solid metal handles, escorted with easy-to-grip winglets, not only enhance its look and feel but also allow confident operation even with wet and soapy hands. The temperature control handle features a SafeStop button, to turn the water temperature up to more than 38oC. Intuitive use of the controls is also aided by the self-explanatory symbols. Its volume control handle is equipped with an EcoButton to help reduce the water consumption by up to 50%, while the AquaDimmer mechanism enables smooth and economical switching between bath filling and showering mode. Its unique GROHE TurboStat® technology allows instant and accurate adjustment of the water temperature.
Versions for concealed installation
The complete Grohtherm 1000 range is available for concealed installation, for bathtub and shower as well as for use as a central thermostat and shut-off valve. Besides featuring solid metal handles, the range comes equipped with the SafeStop Button and the EcoButton on the shower and bath versions with the latter also having the AquaDimmer function. The concealed shower and bath thermostats are best installed using the GROHE Rapido T universal body.
Packed with numerous value-added functions and features, Grohtherm 800 is an entry-level model comes with 40mm diameter, and aimed at public and commercial projects. Apart from its attractive price, the Grohtherm 800 range scores high with GROHE TurboStat® technology, sustainable GROHE EcoJoy® technology, the GROHE SafeStop button, EasyLogic user guidance and its ergonomic winglet handles. For more powerful design statement, the company has the option in the form of Grohtherm 1000 Cosmopolitan M.
