When it comes to outdoor showers, bare brass is best – and the Perrin & Rowe bare brass is as close to best as it comes.
November 6th, 2015
If you’re ever by a pool or returning to a beach house, you’ll soon learn how essential a quality outdoor shower is for rinsing off after a swim or keeping sand out of the house.
Whilst today’s penchant for raw materials in interior use has seen them inside in modern bathrooms, Perrin & Rowe have always designed their bare brass showers for outdoor use first and foremost.
The beauty of uncoated bare brass is that it loves all weather. Being left outdoors will see the brass age and reveal its true beauty. High quality brass actually improves with age and develops into a rich bronze colour, and a marine climate will in fact speed up this process. Within months any notion of brash newness will be a memory, and the resulting colours serve as an ideal companion to wood, stone and the Australian landscape.
Part of the concern with outdoor fittings, especially brass, is of course exposure to harsh elements, especially salty air. High-quality brass though, is engineered to last and weather all the harshness of the Australian climate. Perrin & Rowe brass does not corrode and patina that develops over time will not cause any loss of function.
Perrin & Rowe offers a range of showers and fixtures in bare brass finishes, which allows for customization and mixed choice of configurations – from simple set-ups of to more daring flourishes such as shower roses on exposed pipes complete with hand-shower and diverter. And while handles and levers come standard as porcelain, these too can be ordered in brass for a unified design aesthetic.
Perrin & Rowe is available in Australia through The English Tapware Company
