More about this product

The tap and washbasin need to work well together to avoid splashing. The hansgrohe ComfortZone tests are reliable methods to determine whether or not certain wash basins and faucets are an ideal match for increasing comfort and preventing disturbances such as excessive water splashing. With ComfortZone, faucets are fitted according to their individual installation specifications and then tested for the following criteria:

  • Providing enough free space between the faucet and washbasin
  • Water splash behavior at different pressures
  • Water splash behavior when washing hands

Which Fixtures are ComfortZone Tests Used for?

hansgrohe's ComfortZone test reports are available with various washbasin and faucet combinations that have been tested through many cycles. This provides valuable consulting services for customers and includes the following types of bathroom fixtures:

  • Washbasin with faucet behind
  • Washbasin with faucet on top
  • Washbasin with wall-mounted faucet
  • Concealed installation or counter-top washbasin with a free-standing faucet
  • Wall-mounted washbasin with faucet on top

What is the ComfortZone Testing Process

  1. Clearance Test - The first part of ComfortZone is focused on the clearance between the faucet and washbasin to find the number of space users have for movement between the spout and drain. To determine this, a test ball is placed between the faucet and washbasin to check if the user can wash their hands comfortably. As a result, if the ball does not fit in the center under the stream of water, that combination of faucet and washbasin is not recommended.
  2. Spray Test - This step checks the splashing behavior and determines if there are combinations in which there is an excessive splash when water hits the basin. This test also checks for splashing that occurs outside of the washbasin, and the process is performed several times with different water pressures to render a more realistic result.
  3. Practical Test - In this step, the splashing behavior with different faucet and washbasin combinations is tested. A standard hand model rotates three times under running water to simulate the movement of hand washing. Thus, any water that splashes outside of the basin is noted and affects whether or not certain combinations are recommended.

How to Access ComfortZone Tests
