All sorts of really practical features are built into Hansgrohe and AXOR products, including easy clean which is a really great feature on Hansgrohe shower head nozzles. The innovative, soft rubber nozzles on Hansgrohe and AXOR shower heads are easily rubbed over gently by hand after use (the warm water softens the rubber nozzle material making it even more pliable) or with a soft cloth. This movement stops the build-up of limescale and other dirt by dislodging it before it has had a chance to settle and fortify itself. The gleaming chrome polished finish is easy to conserve with warm soapy water and a cloth. Another really thoughtful feature is Hansgrohe ComfortZone, ComfortZone technology means the product has been developed with maximum usage in mind moving spouts or handles higher and increasing the usable space around the functions of the product making it simple to use, as well as effective and intuitive to operate. XXL performance is another fantastic Hansgrohe and AXOR feature, meaning extra large, luxurious shower heads that offer exceptional performance and deliver a fantastic, superior shower.
