Hampton by Bristan and open square spout design bathroom taps and mixers, a small but concise range, only three items in the range but priced to sell well. There are two basin mixers a standard monobloc and a tall version and the Hampton bath filler completes the range.
All the items have a waterfall style spout and will require a high pressure to work, the minimum recommended is 1.0bar.
Crosswater Zeal bathroom taps are another of there new collections that have emerged this year, very square in design with an unusual cut out on the handle of the tap and a neat flat spout.
The range is a high pressure range only which you will need a minimum pressure of about 1.0bar to operate.
Within the Zeal collection you have the monobloc basin mixer with no pop-up waste so you will need to use a click clack waste, there is a tall mono bloc basin mixer for use with freestanding bowls, there is also a very unusual wall mounted bath shower mixer as you can see from the image to the right, the diverter is mounted on the fascia of the mixer and the handle at the end, it has a neat square wall bracket and shower handset.
To complete the Crosswater Zeal tap and shower range you get to choose between two different versions of manual shower valves one with and one without a diverter which can be used for either showering or filling a bath.

Newest launch for Crosswater is the Elite bathroom taps, again small as a range but as with the Crosswater way of thinking it is very individual and is designed with the precision you have come to expect from Crosswater.
The Elite side lever mono bloc basin mixer feels like it has been moulded into its shape and must be one of the most practical designs I have seen for years cleaning almost with one sweep of a cloth there is no fuss about the shape at all. With the other items in the range of bathroom taps and mixers you get the same clean edge of design although as with some of the latest releases coming out of KBB Birmingham this year there are only five items to choose from adding to the basin mixer is the tall monobloc basin mixer, the monobloc bath filler a monobloc bath shower mixer with pull out hose and handset and a single bath spout which is deck mounted.
Crosswater have launched Status Bathroom Taps an unusual slant with this range it has some harsh angles with some subtle curves in between built and designed with a very well engineered feel as with all Crosswater’s products offering a certain quality and durability.
The choices with in the Status Range stating with the Status Monobloc basin mixer that comes with no pop-up waste so be sure to select a click clack waste as an addition, also you have a mini basin mixer for the cloakroom or smaller basins, there is a tall monobloc basin mixer for freestanding bowls or for a three hole basin you have the 3 hole basin set with a very imposing spout, just to finish off the basin mixer range there is a wall mounted 2 hole basin mixer (as shown below) which is my personal favorite.
To allow for baths you have a choice of a bath shower mixer or bath filler with a 3 hole bath filler or a 5 hole bath shower mixer set, they have a set of deck mounted side bodies which you can match up with the Status bath spout for separate parts.
For showering the range is quite limited there is just a manual shower valve or manual shower valve with diverter available which tend to be used more as bath fillersnow a days the diverter model could also be used to fill up a bath and also divert to a shower handset.

Crosswater have long since put the wow factor in the brass ware market being one of the leaders when it comes to design, well the Stream bathroom taps are no exception to the rule, I think they are a love them or hate them range, I was not sure at first but when you feel the quality in the flesh I feel most unsure people will be convinced.
The range for basins consists of the Stream monobloc basin mixer, a mini basin mixer, a tall basin mixer, a two hole wall mounted basin mixer where the control handle sits above the spout on a rectangular backplate.
For the bath you have a 3 hole bath filler, a 5 hole bath set or you could use a set of hot and cold deck mounted panel valves and the separate bath spout, you also have the option of using a manual shower valve or a manual shower valve with diverter which could be used with a bath filler overflow and shower handset.
