Effortless water control and savings with Grohe SilkMove technology

Grohe is a global leader in complete bathroom solutions and kitchen fittings with innovation at the heart of everything it does, like its SilkMove technology.

The company is passionate about quality, technology, design and sustainability – four brand values that illustrate its commitment to creating exceptional experiences. It sets the highest standards – and people can feel the difference every time they turn on a Grohe tap mixer or step into a Grohe shower.

Grohe’s intelligent green tech solutions enhance water enjoyment and push the boundaries of innovation – and this is clearly demonstrated with its exceptional SilkMove tech.

Only Grohe tap mixers deliver the unique SilkMove experience. The rich, smooth handling of Grohe single-lever mixers expresses the quality and superiority of the brand with the SilkMove cartridge delivering gradual and precise control of water flow and temperature.

Ceramic cartridges

Grohe is one of leading tap manufacturers and one of the few that manufacture their own cartridges. These ceramic cartridges are constructed in a high-tech process and they have discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy.

The polished mirror-like surface of the discs is coated with a special Teflon lubricant for frictionless operation. Grohe builds its taps to last a lifetime, so it has incorporated micro-chambers of this lubricant within the cartridge for a lifetime of maintenance-free operation.

The lever handle of the tap is connected to the SilkMove discs by a solid brass shaft, chosen for its strength and durability. As the discs move over each other, they can block the water or allow it to pass through so the quality and machining of these parts affects the tap’s performance.

As a result of this state-of-the art technology, Grohe taps have an extra-wide operating angle, allowing you to exactly manage the water flow and temperature. SilkMove is another perfect example of design and technology working in harmony to ensure an enhanced water experience.


Energy and water savings

Grohe SilkMove ES technology not only offers a unique smoothness of operation, but also encourages responsible management of energy and water. In cold-water mode and positioned mid-lever, the ES technology springs into life. This eliminates opening the tap in the mixed hot-and-cold water mode, saving energy by avoiding the unnecessary heating of water.

When you need hot water, the wide operating angle of the lever ensures that, by moving it up to 90 degrees left of the mid position, the flow of water is ultra-responsive and precise, giving you total control over temperature and water flow.

Grohe SilkMove ES technology is a harmonious marriage of design and technology, delivering an enhanced water experience whilst encouraging responsible management of precious resources.
