GROHE SmartControl Concealed
The hidden advantages of concealed technology
Space is a valuable commodity and often in short supply. It becomes
a challenge for planners and installers to use it effectively. No
easy task, especially in the shower area where space is often at a
premium. With its concealed installation and exceedingly slim
design, GROHE SmartControl Concealed offers more space under the
shower without compromising on functionality or comfort. It also
offers additional benefits of a practical kind: cleaning becomes
faster and more convenient, thanks to the flat, streamlined design.
Flexibility of design: GROHE SmartControl Concealed also offers a
multitude of design variants. A wide selection of suitable trim
sets and showers ensures that the style chosen for the bathroom
extends seamlessly into the shower area. Concealed technology: more
in it for you.
Slim is the new beautiful
43 MM TOTAL OUTREACH
No matter what the installation depth of the rough-in is, the total
height of the trim never exceeds 43 mm. The GROHE SmartControl
Concealed combines space-saving convenience in the shower and slim
THINNER WALL PLATES
With a height of only 10 mm, its super slim design makes the GROHE
SmartControl Concealed wall plate both elegant and space
HIDDEN SEALING SYSTEM
The GROHE SmartControl Concealed has an integrated sealing system,
completely eliminating water behind the wall.
SYMBOLS CAN BE CHANGED
The control knobs come with a range of different symbols,
representing the different shower options. These symbols are clear
and recognisable and their functionality distinct. They can be
individually configured and also easily exchanged if
Less is much more – One plate does it all
CONTROL UP TO 3 SHOWERS WITH JUST 1 TRIM: Today’s
trend is for a multiple shower experience that offers more than
simple bath/shower combinations. The downside is that for
this to work, you need two rough-ins and two trims to control a
hand shower and a two-spray head shower: up until now.
GROHE Rapido SmartBox and GROHE
SmartControl Concealed make it simple.
With just one rough-in and one trim, it is possible to enjoy two
head shower functions simultaneously. Featuring up to three
SmartControl valves plus thermostat or mixer in one trim,
GROHE SmartControl Concealed means half the work
for three times the showering pleasure. The pleasure of using two
head shower sprays is enhanced by the Rainshower 360 and the new
Rainshower 310 head showers. Designed to be the perfect match, they
deliver an unmissable shower sensation.
Turn up the volume – Or down if you prefer
GROHE SmartControl offers not just a choice of
shower sprays, but also the precise control of water flow.
GROHE SmartControl features an integrated volume
control for an individual shower experience. A simple push of a
button starts or stops the desired shower. And just a turn of the
dial allows for precise control of water volume. Thanks to the
clear symbols on the buttons, operating them is simple and
GROHE SmartControl Concealed comes in two different forms –
round and square. It also comes in two stylish
finishes: classic chrome, for a subtly elegant
design statement, moon white acrylic glass. Each
variant fits its matching GROHE design line perfectly.
Simply the ideal temperature -
Thermostat with GROHE TurboStat technology
Always the right temperature:
For ultimate convenience and safety
GROHE TurboStat technology lies at the heart of our Grohtherm
thermostats. The thermoelement’s unrivalled sensitivity means it
delivers water at the desired temperature within a fraction of a
second – and keeps it constant for the duration of the shower. No
more time, water and energy wasted getting the temperature right.
And if the cold water supply fails, it reacts instantly: the hot
water flow will shut off automatically to avoid the risk of
scalding. Grohtherm thermostats come with a 38°C SafeStop button
and can be complemented with an additional limiter at 43°C. But
more than just controlling the temperature, GROHE TurboStat
compensates precisely for fluctuations in pressure for a
consistently comfortable shower.
The ideal entry-level models, GROHE SmartControl Concealed mixers
combine SmartControl operation with manual mixer technology.
Available with one, two or three control buttons, the mixer
cartridges have the advantage of integrated dirt strainers for
improved durability and easy service.
One can do the job of two
Rough-in with 3 outlets
With three outlets for a wider range of sho wer options, the
GROHE Rapido SmartBox can take on the job where two rough-ins
are normally needed. Which is a huge savings in work and
All ports with 1/2 inch standard
The GROHE Rapido SmartBox makes adapters practically
It has ½" connections, made to fit all standard pipes. Where
rough-ins with ¾" outlets are made to fit the exception not the
the GROHE Rapido SmartBox is designed to fit 90 % of all
Smart, isn’t it?
Efficiency from the bottom up
for efficient piping
Efficient piping leads to efficient installation. The GROHE Rapido
SmartBox comes with bottom inlets, enabling a direct connection to
the hot and
cold water supply. That makes 90° fittings a thing of the past. Why
take a detour when you can take the direct route?
Sweating the small stuff made easy
Subsequently Adjustable Up To Six Degrees
Doing a perfect job comes down to getting even the smallest detail
perfect. And once a job is finished, it’s usually hard to adjust
mistakes. Not with the GROHE wall plates. They can be subsequently
adjusted by up to six degrees – thanks to slotted holes in the
function unit – to allow for perfect alignment with tiles and tile
joints. No drilling, no risk of damage. Just a job well done.
All you need for retrofitting
Service stops for retrofitting
optional service stops for retrofit, the GROHE Rapido SmartBox
gives you full control over the water supply in just a few steps.
In case of maintenance work, each outlet in the building can be
closed directly and separately - a clear advantage especially in
hotels and apartment buildings. Service stops are available as a
retrofit option for the basic rough-in and are easily exchangeable.
Backflow protection for retrofit
every combination with an integrated bath-fill and an overflow unit
must comply with the EU norm EN1717, to protect drinking water from
contamination. With a simple but clever backflow protection device,
the GROHE Rapido SmartBox can be retrofitted to comply with the EU
Fits in every wall - Even thin ones
With an installation depth of only 75 mm, the GROHE Rapido SmartBox
fits into every kind of wall, even particularly narrow ones. And it
can be installed faster and more easily into brick walls.
Easy job-side mounting -
Leave the bench vice at home
GROHE Rapido SmartBox is the smart innovation that enables fast and
easy installation of rough-ins. Thanks to brass outlets, which are
readily accessible, the rough-in can be mounted using an adjustable
spanner or pipe wrench, allowing for efficient, on-site
