No bathroom or kitchen can do without such an element as a faucet. To select the necessary crane, emphasizing with its appearance the style of the interior in which the room is made, you need to use some knowledge. Stopping their choice on the optimal ratio between price and quality, many consumers buy G-Lauf mixers manufactured in China.
Currently, products from G-Lauf are easy to find in many public eating places and sales centers for various products. They have proven themselves in apartments, as well as in places with a large number of people.
The company has been operating since 2003. Initially, the sales area was the territory of the CIS, because it created elements characterized by low cost and good quality. Products are well-established among other companies producing similar elements of plumbing.
Cranes, manufactured under the brand G-Lauf, are manufactured in China at the Tuozhen plant. This enterprise is located in the Taizhou area and is widely known throughout the world for its production and storage location of low-cost sanitary ware. In 2006, the company organized the work of a specialized research center, which is engaged in the improvement and invention of new models of mixers. The authority of the center also includes sales of products for specific regions.
Thanks to the work of its own center of inventions, the company was able to reach the heights of winning the market for its products. This was made possible due to the fact that new technologies were used.
A specialized water distribution mechanism, which is built into the body of the mixer, is based on the functions of ensuring the necessary movement of water. This innovation helps to compete in such products with mixers, in the device of which the thermostat is additionally mounted.
The fixing of the mixer is carried out with the help of a special nut, which resembles the design of the crown in appearance - this gives mobility during installation. In this case, the installation process of the mixer is facilitated, since during this the user will not be required to use a specialized tool and call plumbers who will have to pay for the work.
Switching modes occurs with the help of balls. The use of this technology has increased the life of the elements several times, since the tap water is not always of high quality.
All created devices are divided into two types: with one handle and with two. The first kind of use is especially practical, because with one hand movement you can set the required temperature mode of the water supplied from the tap. In the same way, you can set and its pressure. This is quite convenient if one user's hand is busy with something.
As for the samples with two handles, they have a classic design. In such mixers, the temperature and pressure of the supplied water is regulated by turning the two available handles. Their location is to the right and left of the center of the device itself. A classic-style kitchen will harmoniously look with such a sanitary element.
Among the materials that are used for the manufacture of mixers from the company G-Lauf, the most popular is brass, which has in its properties additional protection from moisture, as well as increased strength, which allows it to withstand considerable mechanical loads. Such material as silumin, an alloy of aluminum and silicon, has proven itself well. There is a special range of models that are used under high loads. In this case, the production material is chosen zinc alloy.
As for the model range of taps, it has a huge variety, so that every consumer will be able to find the necessary sanitary element for their kitchen or bathroom. It is absolutely unimportant in what style the room is made, since the company produces various modifications of devices.
Sanitary ware for the bathroom
Thanks to the use of modern technologies and only high-quality materials, mixers have been created that will always be in demand for any premises. As for the devices used for the bath, you need to know about the method of their manufacture: the production takes place with the help of injection molding. Using this technology, it was possible to obtain excellent quality products, as well as guarantee a long service life. Also, this technology allows to obtain high-quality material with unique strength characteristics, due to which it becomes resistant to corrosion and the formation of plaque. To improve performance and provide additional protection, plating of the product is carried out.
Production materials for such models are all the same products: brass, silumin and zinc alloys. To create the necessary pressure in the chosen direction, a special cartridge is provided, which is made of ceramics. It is located inside the water distribution mechanism.
For a bathroom the model range has a set of variations of execution. There are models of taps with one or two handles, as well as unique faucets that are attached to the sink.
Advantages and disadvantages
Among the many positive qualities that are in the models of mixers, The main ones should be called:
- high quality of products - they are checked at every stage of manufacturing, thereby eliminating the likelihood of low-quality goods entering the consumer market, as well as regulating the period of their operation;
- safety for human health during use due to quality materials used;
- the unique design of the models, which allows to emphasize the interior of any room in which they will be installed;
- the convenience of the elements, which allows you to assemble the construction of the mixer, and in the subsequent stage to install in the right place;
- relevant documentation emphasizes the high level of product quality.
Particular attention is paid to the quality of products, since unlike other companies that produce sanitary elements, products from G-Lauf are not subject to cracking during operation, and the likelihood of bubbles on the surface is eliminated.
Users who have already purchased such devices, leave a lot of positive feedback on products. They note the simplicity and convenience when carrying out installation or dismantling works with mixers, as well as the complete absence of leaks. Particular attention is paid to the durability of products, as this is a significant factor that has a huge impact on the choice of sanitary element.
There are disadvantages in these mixers that should be given special attention. Some users in the course of operation note the poor quality of the hoses, from which water begins to seep at the place of fixation to the tap. There is also a high probability of breakdown of the hexagon faces when large loads are applied in the process of unscrewing the mixer for repair or preventive purposes.
