Hansgrohe launches bathroom planning app
Dubai, September 8, 2013
Hansgrohe, a top German sanitary fittings manufacturer, has launched a home bathroom planning app that enables one to you try out shower solutions in a virtual space.
Hansgrohe@home, the new app, which is available for iPad, iPhone and Android devices, brings interior design solutions to the virtual bathroom. With the expanded version 3.0, users can now virtually design their shower area as well as the wash basin zone themselves.
The app's mode of operation is straightforward and lets users take a photo of the existing wash basin or shower area, and then remove the mixers and showerheads they want to replace with a simple finger swipe. They then select the desired product from the current Hansgrohe product portfolio and virtually place it in the desired location.
“Also available for selection now are the shower solutions from the new Raindance Select product range,” said Dirk Schilmoeller, sales director Middle East for Hansgrohe. “Users can choose between shower sets with mixers, combinations of hand and overhead showers, as well as a pre-assembled showerpipe integrating all the components in a single system.
“The Hansgrohe@home app is just as useful away from home,” added Schilmoeller. “When visiting bathroom showrooms, it’s so easy and quick to try out if the desired mixer suits a particular wash basin, or which shower cabin makes for an ideal match for a Hansgrohe shower solution.”
The app also provides information about products and links directly to Facebook and Twitter, for those wanting to share their bathroom dreams with others.
The Hansgrohe@home 3.0 app is available in 13 languages and can be downloaded free of charge from the Android Marketplace via Google Play and from the iTunes Store.
The details of the terms and conditions for the use of the Hansgrohe app can be viewed via the “Info” link. The bathroom planning app has already been downloaded over 90,000 times, especially by owners of iPhones. But the bigger iPad is catching up fast, because it provides even more impressive visualizations of virtual bathroom scenarios, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
