Abstract: The invention relates to a wall rod (1) to be applied in front of a vertical wall by means of wall supports (6), said wall rod comprising an extension on the upper end thereof, that extends in an arched manner away from the wall. The handle of a shower attachment can be inserted into the free end of said arched pipe extension, and the tube is guided downwards on the rear side of the wall rod (1).
Abstract: A holding device for a shower device has a holder for the shower device that may be attached to and displaced along a hollow rod, the holder surrounding the rod in a collar-like manner. A displaceable carriage having a certain frictional effect and comprising two magnets is disposed in the rod. The holder has two magnets for attachment on the rod such that, in the holding position, the magnets of the carriage interact with the magnets of the holder under a magnetic attractive force so as to prevent the holder from sliding downward because a clamping or frictional effect results from the attractive force of the magnets.
Abstract: The invention proposes a sanitary valve device in which a temperature limiting valve is used to protect a user from water that is too cold. The valve device is designed such that when a water outlet, for example a shower, is switched on, the water is first passed through a first water duct containing the temperature limiting valve, in which duct the temperature limiting valve permits the passage of water below a limit temperature, but blocks it off when above the limit temperature. The fact that either no water or a heavily reduced quantity of water is discharged from the outlet of the sanitary fitting indicates to the user that the cold water has flowed away. He can now operate the changeover valve to directly draw hot water, the temperature limiting valve now being switched off.
Abstract: A shower installation with discharge nozzles for horizontal installation near the ceiling is constructed to be swiveled between a resting position and an active position, wherein at least a section of the discharge nozzles protrudes in the active position. To swivel the mounting of the shower device, an operating device is provided that swivels the shower device mounting via the force of water flowing to the shower devices.
Abstract: A mixer cartridge for insertion into the basic body of a fitting contains a bottom making the water connection with the basic body of the fitting. This bottom is guided so as to be displaceable to some extent with respect to the cartridge housing. In the initial state, this bottom is positioned such that the seals present between it and the mixer system are compressed to an extent such that sufficient sealing-off takes place in the case of a low water pressure. It is arranged so as to be displaceable with respect to the cartridge housing in the direction of an increasing compression of these seals. Consequently, in the case of an increasing water pressure, a higher compression of the seals and therefore an increasing sealing action are made possible.
Abstract: A shower device is attached to a wall and is not connected in a fixed manner to the interior shower or to an additional hand shower. A hose that extends from a plumbing fixture to a hand shower is used for supplying the shower device or hand shower. The hand shower has an outlet for water discharged from the hose. The outlet can be joined to an inlet into the shower device such that the water reaches the shower device via the hand shower. The shower device can be configured as a wall-mounted rod. Preferably, the connection that redirects the water is established by a mechanical coupling device.
Abstract: The invention relates to a jet outlet element for a sanitary fitting which allows outlet of a defined gushing jet from the sanitary fitting. The sanitary outlet element is configured as a flat element having two compartments, a water inlet compartment and a water outlet compartment. A narrowed section is interposed between the two compartments and accommodates a flow rectifier. Said flow rectifier rectifies the as yet non-directional flow of the water in the inlet compartment and guides it in a controlled manner to the outlet compartment from where it emerges through the slotted outlet opening.
