Transforming Water: Ambiance Tuning Technique from Dornbracht.

Iserlohn/ Cologne A cleansing revolution: Fittings manufacturer Dornbracht is presenting a unique technological innovation that sculpts water into the source of one's well-being – Ambiance Tuning Technique. A symbiosis of water experience, aesthetic architecture, minimalist design, convenient operation and innovative control technology, the Ambiance Tuning Technique completely redefines the shower experience.

Ambiance Tuning Technique hones the power of water, making it sensitive to the user's mood. The water area is reinvigorated with a new and pioneering technology. A modular system architecture comprising of the water outlets JustRain, Watersheet and Waterbar and the system components eTool, eValve and eSwitch, put one-of-a-kind water choreography within reach. The localised position of the innovative eValve control unit directly behind each of the water outlets means that water volume and temperature can now be regulated individually for each outlet point simultaneously. The components of the Ambiance Tuning Technique regulate volume and temperature as well as the sequence of the various types of water streams fully automatically. One push of the button starts the roughly five-minute-long preprogrammed choreographies and replaces more than 100 exact and manual water volume and temperature settings. That enables full attention to be directed towards experiencing water and cleansing the body, transforming it into a ritual for body and mind.

The specially developed shower scenarios, Balancing, Energizing and De-Stressing, stimulate the three human dimensions of body, mind and soul.

Balancing – Water becomes the source of spiritual power
The Balancing choreography instils equilibrium and balance whilst bestowing a sense of security. The comforting ebb and flow of the water jets hug the body gently, softly caressing it like a hand. Body and mind are in harmony.

Energising – Water as a giver of energy
Energising inspires new energy, recharging, empowering. All senses are animated, stimulated, the organism is rejuvenated. A constant alternation of comforting, warm rain and cold torrents activates the blood flow and microcirculation.

De-Stressing – Water to cleanse the soul
The De-Stressing water sequence relaxes and calms, shutting the organism down, quite literally pressing the personal "off button". The long, precisely directed warmth of the water relieves the muscles of stress, makes them supple again and sets the mind free.

An overview of the components:

eTool: Thanks to its minimalistic design, the eTool can be integrated seamlessly into every high-quality bathroom architecture while also offering ideal operating convenience. All important functions can be activated by pressing the corresponding buttons just once. The outlets can be controlled individually with the corresponding buttons. The temperature and volume can be adjusted by simply turning the knob. Ambiance Tuning Technique instantly adjusts to the desired temperature and water volume without any delay. An aura of light surrounding the buttons and the knob offers the user feedback about the current settings.

eValve: The electronic eValve that is installed directly behind every outlet makes it possible to change temperature and volume settings during the choreographY.

eSwitch: The eSwitch controls the electricity supply and communication between the eValve and the eTool control panel. The integrated service port in the eSwitch enables system configuration and diagnosis.

Outlets: The Ambiance Tuning Technique outlets originate from the Balance Modules programme (JustRain, WaterSheet and WaterBar), complemented by a spray hose fitting. They can be combined freely within the system architecture and thus make it possible to individually plan and configure showers. The modular construction of the system (60 x 60 grid, known from Symetrics) also supports high levels of individuality and simultaneously guarantees a streamlined overall look. The use of the tried and tested xGrid assembly rail provides for simple and precise installation.
