10 year guarantee. Read about the terms in the guarantee brochure.
A 38°C safety stop button prevents water from getting too hot and accidentally causing burns. Hotter temperatures can be reached by pressing the override button on the temperature control.
The shower mixer has a “cold touch” feature. Thanks to the anti-scald technology, the surface of the mixer bar never heats up and is always safe to touch.
The built-in shelf on the shower mixer is perfect for all those tall shampoo bottles that are often tricky to store in the shower.
Chrome-plated brass is a hard and durable surface that is easy to clean.

Thermostat housing/ Handle:
Turn the thermostat from full cold to full hot from time to time.
Check the temperature control on a regular basis, adjust if necessary according to the assembly instructions.
Clean with a soft damp cloth only using water and a mild washing-up detergent or soap. Never use scouring powder, steel wool, a descaling agent or a detergent that is acidic or contains alcohol or an abrasive.
The thermostatic shower mixer can be used in high pressure systems. Tested to manage a pressure of max. 10 bar (1000 kPa). Recommended working pressure: 1.0 - 5.0 bar (100 kPa - 500 kPa).
With VOXNAN, BROGRUND and VALLAMOSSE showers, we want to help you save water and energy while enjoying a warm and nice shower. To succeed, we had to find just the right balance between the pressure in the water spray of the showers and water consumption. So how could we find out that the balance was right? It was all about changing into swimwear and turning on the mixer.
But before we got that far ― even before looking at all the technical details ― we interviewed people in different countries about their bathrooms and shower habits.
Then we understood how important a few minutes under spraying water can be. Since it's not just about being clean, getting in the shower can also be a way to rinse off stress and unwind ― to take a moment for yourself or just wake up to a new day.
When you rub the sleep out of your eyes in the shower, the spraying water naturally helps. But did you know that only 3% of all water on the planet is freshwater? And most of it is actually bound in ice. Since this limited freshwater is a vital resource for all of life, we must help to nurture it.
The engine of the shower
This is where the shower range comes in. We want to make it simple to save water and energy. With smart technology, the thermostatic mixer and shower arm make this simple.
Antony Smith, who was part of the shower development team, has worked with mixers and showers since he finished university long ago. He describes the thermostatic mixer as the shower's engine
"It's the mixer which ensures that there's an even water flow and the right temperature". Antony explains that it's thanks to the thermostatic mixer that your shower water is not affected if someone turns on the water in the kitchen. You can calmly continue singing in the shower ― without the risk of being burned or getting a cold shock.
The mixers that the team developed also have a 38°C safety stop button, so there's no risk of you or any child accidentally raising the temperature.
Shower testing in swimwear
Another important key to creating both a comfortable and sustainable shower range is the small washer that sits in the shower arm which regulates the water flow. The challenge for the team was to find just the right balance between the water flow and pressure, so that you can use less water without affecting the shower experience.
There was only one way for the team to see if they succeeded:
"When we went to the supplier in China to test the first prototypes, we all packed our swimwear," says Antony smiling.
With his swimwear on, he tested different water spray functions: full, mesh, mist, massage and various combinations of them.
"How people prefer to shower is individual, and with the different streams, we allow everyone to adapt their shower experience. And maybe you'll enjoy showering a little more when you know that it's both water and energy efficient."
What are zinc and zamak?
Zinc is a metallic element while zamak is a mixture of zinc, aluminium, magnesium and copper. Both are durable materials and easy to cast into different shapes. They are good at conducting heat and electricity. Objects made of zinc or zamak are often given a surface treatment to resemble metals like gold, brass or stainless steel. Both zinc and zamak retain their good properties when they are recycled to become new objects.
Designed with safety in mind
IKEA thermostatic shower mixers have a 38°C safety button that must be deliberately pressed to reach higher temperatures, but will never exceed 46°C – which is safe for human skin. Another smart feature is the “cold touch”, anti-scald technology which ensures that the shower mixers will never heat up or cause burns. Whether the preference is modern or more traditional style, IKEA shower mixers offer a great shower experience with highest safety in mind.
