HANSAACTIVEJET Digital was the winner of the German Innovation Award, the iF DESIGN AWARDS, the Red Dot Award, the ICONIC AWARDS and the German Design Awards in the categories "Bathroom and Wellness" and "Eco Design". The HANSASTELA faucet with waterfall optics convinced the jurors of the Red Dot Award as well as the iF DESIGN AWARDS. Both award winners show once again that design-oriented appearance and sustainability in dealing with limited resources are not mutually exclusive, but can rather go hand in hand.</h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Read more about our products:</h3> <p><a class="cta_button" href="https://www.orasgroup.com/cs/ci/?pg=825dc83d-79ef-4b85-a49b-dd1bf9644ec2&amp;pid=4638495&amp;ecid=&amp;hseid=&amp;hsic="><img class="hs-cta-img " style="border-width: 0px; /*hs-extra-styles*/; " alt="HANSAACTIVEJET Digital" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/4638495/825dc83d-79ef-4b85-a49b-dd1bf9644ec2.png"></a></p> <p><a class="cta_button" href="https://www.orasgroup.com/cs/ci/?pg=cf436f5e-ca2d-4f9d-9460-2dd7d5b32187&amp;pid=4638495&amp;ecid=&amp;hseid=&amp;hsic="><img class="hs-cta-img " style="border-width: 0px; /*hs-extra-styles*/; " alt="HANSASTELA" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/4638495/cf436f5e-ca2d-4f9d-9460-2dd7d5b32187.png"></a></p> <img src="https://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=4638495&amp;k=14&amp;r=https%3A%2F%2Fstories.hansa.com%2Fen%2Fhansa-design-awards-2021&amp;bu=https%253A%252F%252Fstories.hansa.com%252Fen&amp;bvt=rss" alt="" width="1" height="1" style="min-height:1px!important;width:1px!important;border-width:0!important;margin-top:0!important;margin-bottom:0!important;margin-right:0!important;margin-left:0!important;padding-top:0!important;padding-bottom:0!important;padding-right:0!important;padding-left:0!important; "> News & Press releases HANSASTELA HANSAACTIVEJET Digital Fri, 21 May 2021 08:00:00 GMT https://stories.hansa.com/en/hansa-design-awards-2021 2021-05-21T08:00:00Z Hansa WATER SMART LIVING – Technology that makes life more sustainable https://stories.hansa.com/en/water-smart-living-technology-that-makes-life-more-sustainable <div class="hs-featured-image-wrapper"> <a href="https://stories.hansa.com/en/water-smart-living-technology-that-makes-life-more-sustainable" title="" class="hs-featured-image-link"> <img src="https://stories.hansa.com/hubfs/Landing%20pages/Sustainability%20and%20DHS/Newsletter/Sustainabiltiy_email_hero_820x450.png" alt="WATER SMART LIVING – Technology that makes life more sustainable" class="hs-featured-image" style="width:auto !important; max-width:50%; float:left; margin:0 15px 15px 0;"> </a> </div> <h3>With the brand promise <span style="font-weight: bold;">Water Smart Living</span>, HANSA Armaturen GmbH describes the consistent evolution of its brand.

Those who want to reduce water and energy consumption in a targeted manner can start therefore with the daily shower ritual. The difficulty: The actual extent of individual showering behaviour is usually not known. This means that many users find it difficult to assess their own actions and bring about a noticeable change. <br><br></p> <h3>Innovative solution: Hand shower with real-time feedback</h3> <p>HANSA is responding to the growing need for water- and energy-saving products with a smart, digital hand shower. The new HANSA<span style="font-weight: bold;">ACTIVEJET</span> <span style="font-weight: bold;">Digital</span> facilitates sustainable consumption and helps users optimise their behaviour simply and effectively. It is based on numerical real-time feedback – similar to sports watches and pedometers. Special feature: a display is integrated into the back of the hand-shower, which shows the current water and energy consumption during and after showering. In addition to displaying consumption, icons in the form of small leaves help to regulate a person’s individual showering behaviour: the number of leaves ranges from five to zero depending on the water and energy consumption. A coloured LED display on the front of the shower head provides additional visualisation. Depending on consumption and water temperature, the colour changes during showering from green to orange to red. Users therefore receive real-time feedback, can regulate their actions accordingly and adapt them to personal goals. The key to a more informed use of resources does not lie in restrictions – such as only taking cold showers – but in motivational feedback and a sense of achievement. The hand shower shows that even a barely perceptible reduction in shower temperature can save considerable amounts of energy. Users therefore have the potential to improve their own environmental footprint with every shower. A win-win situation for man and nature. This is because falling consumption not only reduces the costs of water and energy, but the environment also benefits from up to 24 percent lower CO2 emissions.*<br><br></p> <h3>Intelligent technology and modern design</h3> <p>The smart technology inside the hand shower is developed by the company Amphiro. The Swiss technology company has been part of the Oras Group since 2018 embodying high levels of competence in the areas of energy efficiency, innovative product development and the Internet of Things (IoT). Aspects which are also reflected in the functionality of the new HANSA<span style="font-weight: bold;">ACTIVEJET Digital</span>. All components of the digital hand shower therefore obtain their energy via a small turbine – a kind of "mini generator" – directly from the water flow. Batteries or a mains connection are therefore not required. In total, the shower can store data from more than 100 shower operations. In order to track long-term developments, the Bluetooth®-enabled HANSA<span style="font-weight: bold;">ACTIVEJET Digital</span> can also be connected to a practical app. <br><br><br><br></p> <p>In addition to integrated intelligent technology, the digital hand shower is characterised by a stylish and timeless modern appearance.
