Complete control with the new 1600 valve from Crosswater

Over-bath showers are great space-saving solutions in bijou bathrooms and the new all-in-one Kai 1600 shower valve with two-way diverter and bath spout from Crosswater is the perfect way to achieve dual bath/shower operation in one sleek unit. With a sleek bath spout built-in, there's no need to shell out for a separate bath filler while installation is made easy thanks to its minimalist chrome back-plate that provides a neat finish. Designed for use with a flexible or fixed shower head, the user simply needs to turn the diverter valve left for shower and right for bath, as required. The valve also controls the water flow. A separate control governs the temperature in one sequential movement. With news that thermostatically-controlled bath fillers may soon become a legal requirement in all new-build properties, the new 1600 valve is also ahead of the game when it comes to safety. Featuring high grade TMV2 and WRAS approved thermostatic controls, there's no danger of scalding from either bath or shower. The minimalistic design means there only needs to be one face plate therefore eliminating the need for separate plates for the valve and spout. Handle options can be changed to complement the brassware range in the bathroom. For more information on Crosswater, Simpsons and Bauhaus products, please visit or telephone 0845 873 8840.
