A thermostat faucet ensures constant water temperature and flow throughout its useful life. Even if your loved ones simultaneously flush the toilet. You will not suffer any unpleasant cold shock or even scald yourself. Thanks to the preset temperature, with thermostats you can also save valuable water and energy compared with single-hole faucets. This pays off quickly.
How do thermostats work? A thermostat faucet mixes hot and cold water the way you set it to. If the pressure or temperature changes in the cold- or hot-water pipeline, the thermostat faucet automatically adjusts the mix. If the inflow of cold water stops altogether, it still protects you from scalding. Because the thermostat valve shuts off the supply immediately.

You can choose between hansgrohe thermostats for exposed installation or concealed installation. An exposed-installation thermostat can easily be connected to existing hot- and cold-water connections, and this is also possible in the context of smaller renovations. Exposed-installation thermostats protrude from the wall and can also serve as a practical shelf for shower gel and shampoo. Concealed thermostats are particularly suited for use in new bathroom construction. With these thermostats, all the technology disappears into the wall, giving you the benefit of more space and a tidier overall look.
