iBox Universal with possible applications

iBox Universal Plus

Versatile concealed solutions from Hansgrohe

When implementing concealed installation, the shower base set completely disappears into the wall. You can then install pre-fab sets on top, from any of Hansgrohe's product ranges – now also including the new ShowerSelect pre-fab sets. The fact that the shower technology is elegantly concealed behind the wall not only makes the design look good. It also provides your customer with more space and freedom of movement, or in other words: A more pleasurable shower experience.

iBox universal: more space, freedom of movement and scope for planning

Ever since its launch in 2001, the iBox universal has been setting new standards in the bathroom and has maintained a leading position in the sanitary market. It is the first and only basic set for all Hansgrohe and Axor standard and thermostat solutions. It can be used in private and public areas and complies with current standards all over the world. The big advantage for building owners and bathroom renovators is the scope for planning. Your customers can have the base set installed now (e.g. in a new building) and decide on which mixer to have at a later stage (e.g. the following year). This allows customers more time when selecting their bathroom furnishings and prevents the wall from having to be chiselled out again later.
