The Cascade, Smart Lime Clean (SLC), retrofit tap aerator from Neoperl has been created to ensure a long-lasting quality flow stream, whilst protecting the tap from limescale build-up.

The Cascade SLC is available in many sizes to suit most basin, bath and kitchen taps. It is a low-cost, precision-made device that fits into the end of a tap and can be easily retrofitted. Most taps today come with some form of stream control that after use gathers calcium deposits restricting the flow of water. The beauty of the Cascade SLC is that it does not need to be removed for cleaning, the limescale can simply be rubbed away with a finger ensuring the tap stream remains straight and soft.

Cascade Neoperl

It is available in various flow rates and can be purchased with an integral flow control too with pressure compensating (PC) technology, helping to reduce the amount of water used. It can deliver either an aerated or laminar flow stream, the latter being a requirement for some commercial environments. Cascade can also be purchased with an adjustable stream angle (SSR) which allows the tilting plate at the spout to be angled between 6-10 degrees. Cascade is a really affordable, easy to retrofit solution, that saves water too.

More news from Neoperl

D-Neo from Duravit is a completely customisable range of washbasins, furniture, WC’s, baths and basins and comes with a lifetime guarantee on the ceramic elements in the range for selected countries.* The sophisticated entry-level range, by Belgian designer Bertrand Lejoly, has been created to outlast short-lived trends.

Duravit D-Neo

Versatile D-Neo is component-based and includes a wide range of washbasins: from furniture and built-in variants to hand rinse basins and above-counter basins. The washbasins feature an all-round rim and the matching vanity units are eye-catching and practical with added storage space. The above-counter basins are available in oval or round variants.

All the toilets come with the Duravit Rimless® technology and can be ordered with the antibacterial HygieneGlaze ceramic glaze, achieving perfect flushing results with just 4.5 litres of water. The D-Neo series also offers a matching bidet.

A further highlight in this price segment is the free-standing DuraSolid® bathtub with its velvety look and feel and a style reminiscent of the oval above-counter basins. At just 1600 mm in length, it also perfectly showcases smaller bathrooms.

Built-in bathtubs made from sanitary acrylic with one sloping backrest are available in five sizes ranging from 1500 x 750 to 1800 x 800 mm. The 1800 x 800 mm version can also be ordered with two backrests.

The built-in bathtubs also come in a whirl version for that extra-special feel-good factor. Six flat water-air nozzles arranged in the side walls create a beneficial massage effect.

Available in widths of 410 to 1400 mm and numerous design options, the D-Neo furniture perfectly complements any bathroom. Three new wood-look décors complete the selection of D-Neo furniture finishes bringing the total to 13. A harmonious overall picture is produced when combined with the ergonomic handle in a diamond-black finish; this mirrors the curve of the console panels and washbasins. The indirect light provided by the matching circular mirrors from the Light + Mirror range creates a pleasant ambience. The mirrors and mirror cabinets are available as a rectangular option with LED edging lighting at the top, guaranteeing ideal illumination of the washing area.

Washbasin mixers with the FreshStart feature are also available for the first time: cold water flows in the central position. Hot water is only added when the user deliberately moves the handle to the left, limiting the energy-intensive production of hot water to situations where it is actually needed.

Thanks to the selection of D-Neo ceramic elements, the high-quality furniture, wide range of bathtub options, and matching faucet range, it’s possible to customize any bathroom in top quality and for an attractive price.

*Lifetime garantee us for the ceramics only – not the complete range.

The new BetteFlat is a shower area made of glazed titanium steel, especially for bathrooms that need to provide barrier-free access, conforming to the standard, DIN 18040-2.

It can be installed flush to floor, and 50 percent of its surface can be used to provide space for access to other bathroom items, such as the basin, so it can be particularly useful in bathrooms with small floor plans. In addition, it protects the user with slip resistance to rating group B, is easy to maintain, robust and comes equipped with a sound insulation set. BetteFlat is ideally suited for use in commercial and private residential projects.

In order for the shower area to be considered as accessible according to the DIN 18040-2 standard, it must be at least 120 x 120 cm in size and be of the same floor level. In addition, stability and slip resistance to evaluation group B and a high-contrast design are required. All requirements of the barrier-free standard are met by the new BetteFlat shower area in full, tested and confirmed by DIN CERTCO.

Makes small bathrooms accessible

The BetteFlat can be installed in bathrooms in which the user’s movement areas for the shower, washbasin and WC are overlapping. With a gradient of less than two percent, half of its total area can be counted as a movement area. This allows a bathroom of high aesthetic quality to be realised, even with a compact floor plan of only four square metres.

Safety for all generations

Due to the frequency and severity of falls in the bathroom, DIN 18040-2 requires slip-resistant floor coverings with slip class B (GUV-I 8527 “Floor coverings for wet-loaded barefoot areas”, rating group B) in the shower area. With its proven Anti-slip Pro surface, the BetteFlat offers standard-compliant safety for people with movement restrictions, but also for families with young children or those future-proofing their bathroom – in fact for anyone who wants to enjoy a carefree shower.

A welcome side effect of the integrated slip resistance is that aids, such as anti-slip mats or pads, which with their uneven and difficult to clean surfaces offer the ideal breeding ground for dirt and germs, become superfluous. On the hygienic and non-porous surface of the glazed titanium steel BetteFlat, dirt and bacteria find it difficult to adhere.

Colours also mean safety

The BetteFlat is available in white, in exclusive matt colours and in Pergamon, Manhattan, Bahamas, Edelweiss, Jasmine and matt black. As a result, the shower area can be used in any bathroom interior design and, as required by the Standard, the BetteFlat can form a visual contrast to the surrounding bathroom floor. For people with reduced vision, this means that they can orient themselves more safely, even in poor light conditions.

The anti-slip surface does not diminish the elegant look of the glazed titanium steel. However, the difference between the shower area and the surrounding floor, usually tiles, is also noticeable under-foot, so that two senses signal entering the shower area.

Ease of care and sound insulation included

In addition, the BetteFlat offers a high level of hygiene, ease of care and durability. The glazed titanium steel is impact-resistant, scratch-resistant, chemical-resistant and UV-resistant – Bette provides a 30-year guarantee on the material. With the BetteInstallation System Universal, the shower area is also sealed according to DIN 18534 and can be inspected at any time, because the shower area can be easily removed.

At the factory, the shower area is also equipped with a basic sound insulation set. If a higher level of sound insulation, in accordance with DIN 4109, is required, the set can be extended with further sound insulation measures.
