CeraWall is Dallmer's innovative wall drainage system for level-access showers, which has won many awards for design excellence. The Innovation Award for Architecture + Construction 2015 is a particular honour. It is bestowed on products " that particularly meet the needs and requirements of architects and interior designers".
The "Innovation Award" is a competition in honour of intelligent architecture held by the architecture magazines AIT and XIA in collaboration with BAU Munich and was held this year for the 12th time. The aim of the competition is to highlight the significance of architectural quality in the construction sector. Among the 75 submitted products, CeraWall S received a "Special Award".
The tribute paid by the jury - 17 renowned architects and interior architects - focussed on the qualities of the wall drain: "What is striking about this particular drainage system for level-access showers is its minimalist design and the high-precision craftsmanship. The three-dimensional slope is milled into the slim 54 mm channel, thus skilfully creating the look of a linear drainage system with a point drainage system. Depending on the finish of the stainless steel surface, which is satin or polished, and its interplay with the surrounding materials the channel can be both eye-catching or discreet.
The reason for the special award further stipulates: "Thanks to its sophisticated technology, the product delivers a technically and aesthetically compelling flush-mounted wall-floor connection for channel inlets. Compared to products that apply finishes to the drain cover plate, this is an "honest" product, which acquires its own intrinsic design value borne from technical requirements. The jury further recognises that the innovation is the result of the consistent and logical further development of a known product".
Overall, in terms of function, design, material and application, CeraWall S particularly stood out among comparable products on the market. The excellent design and easy maintenance offer advantages both in the commercial sector, such as hotel bathrooms, and in the housing sector. Where level-access showers are concerned, CeraWall is quite simply "state of the art", both aesthetically and technically.
In other words: it looks great, is safe to install and easy to clean. An honest product.
