It can be hard to stand out amongst the thousands of stands at ISH, the world’s leading trade fair for HVAC + Water, but the team at SFA, Saniflo’s parent company, did just that with two stands showcasing its phenomenal range of pump and shower products.
In Hall 9.0 the stand consisted of a mix of new products and amazing technology. Taking centre stage was a new range of outdoor pumping stations for underground use which will take Saniflo into bigger projects and developments. With up to 12,000 litres tank capacity and 150 litres per minute pumping ability the new pumps will be launched into the UK market later in 2019.
On the stand a series of touch screens were fixed at waist level for customers to digitally browse the full range of products. These interacted with wall mounted screens which automatically switched data to display the information of interest in a bigger format including videos, specifications, images and installation instructions. When not in use the stunning glass screens reverted to striking robotic imagery – designed to catch the eye of show traffic.
Each category of Saniflo pumps and lifting stations was grouped together and displayed in illuminated bays offering visitors the opportunity to touch and feel the products to appreciate the high quality finish and componentry. The whole stand was exceptionally striking and highly visible from a distance ensuring the Saniflo stand was one not to be missed.
In Hall 3.0 – the Water and Bathroom Hall – the range of Kinedo shower cubicles and enclosures were on display including brand new enclosures – Fast 2000, Kinespace and Eclipse – as well as new shower tray ranges; KInestone, Kinesurf Pietra and Kinesurf +.

The new Kinestone Tray range is positioned at the top end of the Kinedo tray portfolio. A luxurious, lightweight and durable tray it is textured to resemble slate. Oozing quality the tray is just 30mm thick and can be very easily cut to size on site if required and also features excellent non-slip credentials. Made from Biolith, a high density cellulite structure, the tray is highly resistant to damage and available in both square and rectangular shapes with sizes ranging from 800mm to 1800mm.The Kinestone is available in six colourways that reflect the modern bathroom and there is a colour to suit most décor schemes including white, grey, black, sable, anthracite and chocolate. Every last detail has been thought of in this new range such as metal gullies that match the tray colours.
Kinesurf Pietra is a classic simple design that sits firmly in the middle of the tray portfolio. Lightweight and with a stunning mineral textured surface this tray is 40mm think and also cuttable. Four colours – white, black, anthracite and grey – can be teamed up with matching wall panels if required. The grainy Biocryl surface is reinforced with Biotec, a high density polymer that is also used to reinforce the ultra-flat stainless steel waste to match the tray colour. Multiple sizes in square and rectangular shapes can be specified from the compact 800mm to the walk-in1800mm. Another feature of this tray is good surface grip which offers peace of mind for users.
The mid-market Kinesurf + tray range comes in square, rectangle and quadrant shapes each featuring a fine textured surface. The flexible range comes in multiple standard sizes and has the benefit of a choice of waste positions. The ultra-flat waste has a coloured metal waste grill to match the four colours of the tray – white, black, anthracite, grey – whilst each tray is 40mm thick and has a grainy Biocryl surface with Biotec reinforcement.
Both stands were packed with visitors from open to close each day and it’s fair to say that whilst investment in the show is considerable, the quality and volume of visitors ensure ISH retains its titles as the foremost show in the sector globally.
