Superior and robust: AXOR FinishPlus surface finishes, made in a PVD process

The vibrant AXOR FinishPlus surface finishes are a masterful combination of high-tech and craftsmanship. They are made in a physical vapour deposition process – a coating process at high vacuum in a vacuum chamber, in which an electric arc is discharged. The infed gases are combined with zirconium. This mixture hits the product’s chrome surface and forms an additional PVD coating up to 0.3 μm thick. The special colours are created through specific gas mixtures in the coating process. They are applied to coordinated layer compositions that the in-house experts have developed specially for the AXOR FinishPlus surface finishes. For the brushed versions of the taps, showers or accessories are brushed by hand prior to the PVD coating process, in a motion perfectly suited to the design. The growing demand for vibrant bathroom products is met with several vacuum chambers at the AXOR manufacturing site at the Hansgrohe Group’s headquarters in Schiltach.  

The advantages of PVD coating at a glance:

  • Excellent shine
  • Broad spectrum of colours
  • Consistently high quality
  • High resistance to mechanical and chemical influences, such as scratches, cleaning products and corrosion (e.g. through the salt in the sea breeze)

From a tap to a one-of-a-kind item: AXOR Signature makes unique (bathroom) dreams come true 

Extending, shortening, labelling: The AXOR Signature service meets customers’ needs when it comes to making adjustments to suit personal preferences, with the addition of a logo, labels in a specific language, a specific handle, to name but a few design options. Or to suit the room conditions with an extended shower arm to do justice to the ceiling height. Or to adjust the tap spout to the unusual shape of a basin. These personal requests are custom made by experts with many years of experience and a keen eye for detail, all while fulfilling the latest industrial standards.

AXOR Signature: design freedom for architects, interior designers and planners

With AXOR Signature, the brand opens up totally new possibilities in bathroom design for architects, interior designers and planners, who can tailor taps and showers to the property’s luxurious interior design. For example by selecting a trapeze-shaped Swarovski crystal as a tap handle. In luxury hotels, exclusivity is reflected in the little details – the basin tap adorned with the hotel logo or hot/cold labels in the local language. AXOR Signature makes customers’ dreams come true. A service for bathroom designers who offer their customers more than just the standard.

Customised bathrooms to suit customer needs with product adaptations by AXOR Signature

Daily challenges in the planning stages: The bathroom features a very high ceiling, the basin is an unusual shape, the room’s architecture requires an off-beat design solution. Dealing with specific customer requests often comes down to adapting the products to certain circumstances. These product adaptations are a job for the AXOR Signature service: Here shower arms are extended so that people can enjoy the unique experience of being under an AXOR shower, even if installed on a very high ceiling. Or the AXOR Signature experts might extend the base set of the basin tap to perfectly coordinate the height of the tap with the height of the basin. There are so many options – but the result is always the same, AXOR Signature transforms an AXOR product into a one-of-a-kind piece, made by hand and using state-of-the-art technology, both with the customary AXOR precision.

The AXOR Signature service offers a variety of adaptation options. They even test the most unusual requests to see if making them is feasible and technically possible.
