Caroma's Breakthrough Flow Shower Wins 2011 Australian International Design Award
The Caroma Flow Shower was one of 232 Australian and internationally designed products, which were assessed by a panel of international design experts. Of the 47 product finalists, the Caroma Flow Shower won the best product in the Housing and Building Category.
The accolade is in recognition of the Caroma Flow Shower’s distinctive design featuring a new approach to water and energy efficient shower technology. The products overcomes the issue of how to produce a good, ultra low flow shower experience.
Total energy savings up to 28 per cent compared to an equivalent 3-star shower can be achieved by the Caroma Flow Shower, providing a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
Commenting on the win, Dr Steve Cummings, Research and Design Manager at Caroma said, “In winning the 2011 Australian International Design Award, Caroma has demonstrated that its design is a shining example of Australian innovation. The Caroma Flow Shower has been developed using world class technology that breaks new ground.
“We are delighted that the Caroma Flow Shower has been acknowledged amongst so many high quality international designs across such varied product categories. The award cements the Caroma Flow Shower’s position as an industry leading environmental product and recognises its exceptional design, quality and reliability,” he added.
Generating consistent water flow quality, the highly efficient and patented shower nozzle of the Caroma Flow Shower is engineered to deliver the same or better performance as a conventional shower (nine litres per minute), saving on both water usage and hot water energy running costs.
The nozzle and geometry design disperses the water spray so that no holes or gaps are produced within the spray pattern. The shower surpasses all benchmarks for superior uniform spray coverage, distribution, and water force with an ultra low flow rate.
