    Linear SteamHead Wins KBCULTURE Award

     / Hello MrSteam

    The MrSteam Linear SteamHead has proven its design excellence yet again by winning a 2016 KBCULTURE Award. Now in its seventh year, the annual competition recognizes the best of the kitchen and bath industry’s aesthetic and technological innovations.

    Linear SteamHead: Unique Flush-to-the-wall Design

    The sleek and innovative Linear SteamHead was singled out for its unique flush-to-the-wall design, which distinguishes it from other steam shower heads that protrude into the room.

    Expressing the timeless philosophy of the Bauhaus school of design, its clean, narrow, one-piece opening emits a thin, undulating ribbon of steam that flows upward in an even, gentle pace. This “reverse waterfall” naturally distributes steam throughout the room, providing a theatrical focal point for the steam room bather.

    Clean, Minimalist Design

    At its core, the Linear SteamHead is a major design step forward in often fixture-crowded bathrooms and steam showers. Its clean, minimalist design makes the innovative unit felt, but not necessarily seen.

    Made of corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum, its horizontal opening delivers three times the cross-sectional, or slot, area of a standard single-point steamhead. This larger opening and one of a kind steam dispersion engineering creates up to 80% less noise as it facilitates the distribution of steam throughout the room at a much lower velocity.

    Inside the Linear SteamHead you'll find an array of alternating and intersecting vanes that move the incoming steam around--expanding it, slowing it down and changing its direction. What emerges on the other side of the steam room wall is a rich fluffy cloud of steam, whose soft, billowy surfaces envelope the space and warmly embrace the skin.

    What better way to experience the many health and wellness benefits of steam?
