Thanks to micro spray technology, the new PowderRain in hansgrohe Raindance showers envelops the body in a gentle cocoon of water.
Inspired by nature: With warm and misty rain droplets in mind, the bathroom specialist Hansgrohe developed the new PowderRain spray. The innovative spray mode is featured in a new hansgrohe range of Raindance showers and continues the success story of its popular handheld and overhead showers. “When showering, water should fall on the body—and nowhere else,” Jan Heisterhagen, Vice President Product Management, explains. “The effect of enveloping the body in a warm, protective cloak of water is achieved by PowderRain with dozens of small water droplets. The innovation is in every single nozzle, which has to be placed precisely on the spray disc.”
More spray outlets for gentle micro droplets
With the newly developed micro spray technology a single PowderRain spray is much finer than conventional shower jets. Instead of only one spray outlet per nozzle, PowderRain has six fine openings that transform the spray into thousands of micro droplets by means of sophisticated technology. They are so light that they fall gently on the skin without bouncing off. This automatically reduces splashing: a great advantage in open showers, also requiring much less work when cleaning the shower area. “And the sprays are arranged more densely as well, which intensifies the moistening of the skin,” Jan Heisterhagen explains. A shower experience that pampers all our senses also includes pleasant acoustics. In Hansgrohe’s new sound laboratory, experts were able to reduce shower sounds in PowderRain by about 20 percent.* The new Raindance Select S 120 P hand showers featuring PowderRain are quiet as a whisper, also contributing acoustically to an overall experience of pure relaxation.
Mini droplets – maximum effect
When concentrated, many small things often produce a strong impact: another principle of nature that makes the new PowderRain spray so effective. Due to the greatly increased number of droplets, water covers larger areas of the body. This makes PowderRain particularly effective, for example, when rinsing out shampoo. This new spray mode helps save water too: PowderRain lowers water consumption in handheld showers by about 30 percent to just 12 litres per minute. Less water also means lower energy consumption.
Experience PowderRain in hansgrohe products
PowderRain is featured for the first time in the hansgrohe Raindance Select S 120 handheld shower, indicated by the initial “P”. This hand shower offers three spray modes: Rain, Whirl Air and now PowderRain. Thanks to its full, rain-like shower spray, Rain is ideal for everyday showering routines. Whirl is a powerful, concentrated massage jet that stimulates muscles and skin. With its gentle micro sprays, PowderRain provides a deeply relaxing and pleasurable experience. Available product ranges featuring PowderRain also include Raindance overhead showers, shower sets and showerpipes in combination with concealed and surface-mounted mixers and thermostats. In this way, it is possible to bring this extraordinary shower feeling to any bathroom regardless of installation requirements.
*This value was calculated by comparing the PowderRain spray mode with the Rain spray mode of the hansgrohe Raindance Select S 120 P with a water pressure of approximately 3 bar.
