A frame in brilliant chrome look provides the contours for the "OpenSpace" shower partition on the wall. Two large glass doors are fitted in the frame. These are simply swung open for showering and subsequently closed again to resume their wall panel function after enjoying a shower. The option of mirror glass instead of clear glass for the tap fittings side further boosts OpenSpace's visual effect – the bathroom appears substantially larger. The profiles are the defining technical feature. The door profile incorporates a lifting and lowering mechanism. As a result, the doors stop automatically in the shower position of 90 degrees when moved and are lowered in this position. This guarantees optimum protection from splashing. They can be opened further to facilitate cleaning and are lowered again automatically on reaching 180 degrees. The integrated U-profile provides for added stability. It also allows for the compensation of wall unevenness of up to 18 mm. This is advantageous when uneven walls are involved, such as is commonly the case in older buildings. As such, this new form of shower partition not only provides the room with a more spacious appearance and enables greater freedom of movement in the bathroom, but also offers practical advantages during installation.
