Buzz & Craze
Featuring Safe Touch technology, Bristan has updated the Buzz and Craze models within its bar shower range which now included the Wallmount 12 fixing kit as standard. The award-winning kit has been engineered to enable front of wall isolation, meaning the connectors can be installed first, and the bar shower itself doesn’t have to be fitted until a later stage, protecting it from potential damage.
In addition to an easier installation, the fixing kit is also said to makes maintenance “a breeze”, allowing for front of wall servicing if required to save installers time and money.
