Specifier Review


As part of its ongoing product development programme for 2013, Redring has announced the latest addition to its shower offering with the launch of the new Active range of instantaneous electric showers. The new range has been restyled with a modern and sleek new look, whilst remaining affordable.

The range consists of the Active and Active Plus. Both models are available in 7.2kW or 8.5kW options for a wide range of installation applications.redring

For ease of installation, Active and the Active Plus showers have right hand side, multiple entry connection options – top, bottom or rear. This offers flexibility when siting and connecting power and water services to the shower, as well as enabling the units to easily replace many market equivalents. Aiding this further, there are additional backplate fixings identical to those used on the previous Redring Active models so replacing these showers becomes a quick and simple job. Both models feature also feature a removable corner section to ensure a straightforward installation.

The Active and Active Plus both feature separate rotary power selection and flow/temperature controls, ensuring end users can easily choose the settings to suit their needs. The control dials have been ergonomically designed for ease of use, and are easier to operate than dual concentric dials previously used on many shower models.

The Active Plus model also benefits from an independent push button start/stop control, which allows for the power selection and temperature/ flow dials to be left in the preferred settings of the user, ensuring a consistently comfortable showering experience is maintained. In addition, the Plus model incorporates two red neon indicators at the top of the unit – one to indicate power on and the other to indicate auto-reset.

Both models offer rub clean handsets, with the Active model providing a single showering mode, and the Plus version featuring a choice of three spray pattern modes. Both showers are sold with an accessory kit comprising of a shower hose and soap dish. The Active offers a 1m shower hose, while the Active Plus is provided with a 1.25m hose. As well as the practicalities, the units have been designed with a new contoured body styling and a clean white finish, adding a touch of elegance to any bathroom décor.

Steve Mongan, Head of Marketing at Redring, commented: “Following our successful rebrand and move to new premises in 2012, we’ve been working behind the scenes to streamline our product ranges. We will be focusing on our popular Active and Xpressions ranges, which is why we are introducing these two new showers to form the new Active family of products.

“The two new models are not only flexible in terms of installation and siting, but they are also stylish and modern, all packaged at an affordable price.”
