The Kohler X Westin Heavenly Shower …

A global Five Star favourite with architects… and the planet!

It started as a quest to deliver a luxury shower experience that could not be found in any other hotel. It ended with a heavenly shower that is a favourite with commercial architects and designers around the world, for both its versatility and indulgent water delivery!

Westin Brisbane

Originally Westin Hotels and Resorts partnered with Kohler Co in the US to create the Westin Heavenly Shower II, a shower designed to enhance the guests experience with Kohler’s proprietary Katalyst Air showering technology, whilst remaining simple to install. The Heavenly Shower II is ultimately a luxury shower that combines a Katalyst Air-Induction Rainhead with a dual-function handshower – using just 7.5 litres of water a minute to create a highly indulgent rainshower/deluge experience. This shower saves the Westin hotel group in the US alone, 49,700 litres of hot water per room each year!

Kohler’s HydroRail with Katalyst showering technology delivers luxurious, plump water droplets that retain the heat for longer.

Integral to the overall design of the Heavenly II showering experience is the ability to retrofit the appliance – it easily fits an existing supply elbow with fixed shower rose, without the need to alter in-wall plumbing, therefore negating the need to take the hotel room out of service.

HydroRail Showering Solution

The HydroRail showering solution ensures no behind-the-wall work or expense is required!

With a 3 star WELS rating and a reputation for delivering a luxurious ‘deluge’ experience, the Heavenly Shower II has become increasingly specified in hotels across the globe for its sheer versatility. Outside of the US the Westin Heavenly Shower II is known as the HydroRail and can be installed in many different configurations – from the HydroRail and overhead Katalyst RainCan to a myriad of handheld showerheads and shower arm options.

The HydroRail shower column is available in three configurations – a slide bar, round column or square column. The HydroRail Shower has three main elements – the column, the overhead shower head and the handshower – but within these there are so many options that the hotel can customise its own showering installation. Examples include a simple HydroRail height-adjustable slide bar bracket with choice of handshower, or a HydroRail column (in round or square profile) with overhead Katalyst RainCan paired with one of the many handheld showerheads on offer.

Showerheads and handshowers are available in multiple profiles to be paired with the HydroRail, such as the RainCan overhead showerhead with Katalyst technology which is available in round or square format, in sizes ranging from 200mm to 250mm and 300mm. Handshowers are available in square, round and rectangular formats with and without Katalyst air-infused spray patterns.

Offering the most innovative and advanced showering experiences in the world, the “Kohler Heavenly Shower” name is now used by local designers to describe all of the Kohler Katalyst Air shower offerings with various finishes and variable showering sprays – all sustainable options that save water without sacrificing comfort.

The Kohler Heavenly Shower II – bringing both customised design options and sustainability choices to hotels around the world – has most recently been installed throughout the new Westin Hotel in Brisbane and W Brisbane and the Royce Hotel in Melbourne and the premium suites at the  William Inglis M Gallery by Sofitel at Warwick Farm in Sydney.

The Katalyst for change in showering technology

Advanced water technology means we can all indulge in a drenching, luxurious, all-enveloping shower safe in the knowledge we are using less water than ever when showering!

Kohler, the US global design force in bathroom design and technology, is the brand behind the patented Katalyst showering technology.

A reconfigured sprayface and an air-injection mechanism create a super-indulgent ‘rainshower’ experience whereby the user receives even, wide coverage, without any wasteful overspray, regardless of the water pressure.

Katalyst showering - Exhale

The Exhale Showerhead offers 4 different shower spray options to suit your mood.

Katalyst technology introduces 2.2 litres of air into every 9.4 litres of water creating larger, fuller water droplets that retain heat longer**.

The fullness and force of the water spray emulates that of a heavy rain shower, courtesy in part to the redesign of the nozzles – larger diameter, different configuration and revised angle.

Kohler’s Katalyst showering technology delivers luxurious, plump water droplets that retain the heat for longer.

The unique patented technology of Katalyst results in a better cleaning and hair rinsing performance – and an overall indulgent, luxurious experience.

And while the technology is high performance there are no visible changes to the showerhead’s exterior and no extra noise.

Katalyst showering - Exhale

The Exhale Shower comes with 4 different shower spray options – from Silk Spray for a gentle face wash to Drenching for a full showering experience.
