Only GROHE taps deliver the unique GROHE SilkMove® experience. The rich, smooth handling of our single lever taps conveys the quality and superiority of our brand.
The sensory feedback delivered by a GROHE tap is one of substance – as you change the temperature from hot to cold, one ceramic disc effortlessly glides across the other with absolute precision. GROHE SilkMove® is an interactive sensation which you will experience day after day for the life-time of your tap.The cartridge is the nerve centre of every tap and where the ceramic discs are located.
The lever handle of the tap is connected to the discs by a shaft – GROHE uses solid brass for strength and durability. As the discs move over each other, they either block the water or allow it to pass through. Therefore the quality and machining of these parts will affect the performance of the your tap.
GROHE is one of the world’s leading tap manufacturers and one of the few that manufacture their own cartridges. Our cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The polished mirror-like surface of the discs is then coated with a special Teflon lubricant for frictionless operation. And because our taps are designed withstand years of use, we incorporate micro-chambers of this lubricant within the cartridge – for a lifetime of maintenancefree operation.
As a result of this state-of-the art technology, our taps have an extra-wide operating angle, allowing you to exactly manage the water flow and temperature. Like all our technologies, GROHE SilkMove® is yet another perfect example of design and technology working in harmony to give you an enhanced water experience.
The special ceramic discs and Teflon® technology in GROHE SilkMove® cartridges ensure a lifetime of effortless precision.
