In 2014 the company completed development of the new Surfex and Stonex materials based on resins and inorganic fillers, which combine physical properties such as durability, resistance, non-toxicity and easy repair with new aesthetic possibilities, aimed at maximum customization: unlimited forms, new colors and textures, and cut-to-size formats, adapted to the available space and user requirements. These materials were used for various collections including the Modo collection, featuring sinks, bathtubs and shower trays manufactured entirely in Surfex and Helios and Terran shower trays, made with Stonex.
The 2014 launches include other innovative solutions that are worth highlighting. They are designed to improve the user experience in the bathroom space, meeting all comfort, health and hygiene, water saving and versatility standards which the Group applies to all its brands and product categories. In terms of faucet breakthroughs, worth noting are the Roca Box universal module for recessed shower and sink faucets and shelves added to shower faucets and columns. Of note also is our water-saving advances, including cold start technology, electronic and timed faucets for public use spaces and the implementation of the Water Label. In other categories, in addition to the new customization options already mentioned, we highlight the use of LED lighting and audio with bluetooth technology in furniture collections, new touchless flushing systems for wall-mounted toilets and shower trays with non-slip surfaces, among many others.
