One of the UK’s ‘leading luxury shower manufacturers’ has launched a technology to help prevent scalding in the shower.
Insignia says that figures from ‘Hot Water Burns Like Fire – the campaign to stop scalding by hot water from your taps and showers’, indicate that the NHS admits over 300 people annually to its specialist burns service for severe scalds from hot water in their shower, bath, or sink.
Insignia, a ‘premier UK brand for luxury steam and hydro massage showers’, says its digital shower head, ‘powered by dynamo technology’, measures the temperature of the water and displays it via a digital read-out and coloured safety lights, ‘giving exact control of the heat of the water’. The dynamo technology means the digital read-outs and lights are all simply powered by water pressure.
Leon Maclean, Insignia’s MD, said: “The digital shower head is designed to give greater control and awareness over the water temperature, generally lowering the risk of scalding in the bathroom. The product isn’t just about scald prevention though; it’s simply about giving greater control on the temperature you are showering at.”
The digital hand shower uses a standard 15 mm threaded connection, and can be applied to the majority of shower units.
