Metris Classic by Hansgrohe. Perfect balance and harmony – an expression of modern classic style in history and tradition.

Refined ambience and a passion for classic décor and furniture with a hint of nostalgic charm – that is the distinct, timeless subtlety of the Classic style. Hansgrohe presents two lines – in different variations.
Modern classic. Metris Classic is inspired by the classic shapes of past times, bringing them back to life in modern mixers. Handle and spout are subtly curved. With an air of lightness and liveliness, Metris Classic exudes exceptional luxury and the memory of a golden age.
Modern, classic style. Metris Classic is inspired by classic shapes from the past and incorporates them into modern mixers. The handle and spout are subtly curved while the chrome surface accentuates the superior quality of the mixer.
With its air of ease and vitality, Metris Classic exudes a sense of luxury. It also shines with its inner values, such as the QuickClean anti-limescale function and the water-saving EcoSmart function.
Metris Classic comes with EcoSmart and AirPower technology: for greater utility and efficiency. How can the full potential of water be realised while using less of it?
EcoSmart is a technology that regulates the flow rate. The precision „O” ring flexibly responds to the available water pressure and maintains the flow rate at a consistently low level. The higher the pressure, the smaller the opening
for the water becomes; the lower the pressure, the more the ring widens. In addition, the AirPower technology infuses the water with air, producing a voluminous, splash-free jet, while using the water efficiently. The following example shows how much water and energy can be saved using Hansgrohe mixers.
