Abode Sponsor Hot Tap Advice Hub at InstallerSHOW 2024

Abode, award-winning designer and distributor of market leading kitchen taps & sinks, Pronteau hot water taps, bathroom taps & showering solutions is proud to sponsor the Hot Tap Advice Hub at Installer Kitchens & Bathrooms, which debuts at InstallerSHOW 2024 this summer.

The Abode Sales & Development Team are thrilled to support this new event programme, which will take place at InstallerSHOW at the NEC Birmingham on 25th to 27th June 2024. As the headline sponsor of the Hot Tap Advice Hub, Abode will become a key feature of this newly immersive experience dedicated to kitchens and bathrooms and from Stand A14, it will display three working Pronteau instant hot water taps to perform demos to visitors, offer expert advice, technical product information and supply marketing materials to educate and inspire showgoers.

Leanne Stansfield, Marketing Manager at Abode says, “Following the popularity of the instant hot water tap within the DIY market, the latest research is reporting that 80% of all new premium kitchens, and 20% of all mid-range kitchens now include a hot water tap as the go-to kitchen essential. As innovators in kitchen sinks and taps, we want to empower decision makers so they can inform their customers about the latest innovations and technologies for the modern kitchen. From product design and style through to function and efficency, the hot tap market is breaking away from generic forms and making a shift towards refreshingly functional designs, so we want to ensure our brand and products are visible to this captive audience of over 20k installers, specifiers, designers, developers, manufacturers and retailers.”

As the kitchen furniture market continues to cater to the evergreen categories of traditional, contemporary and industrial style interior design, selecting the right instant hot water tap has never been more important and is now an integral part of the design and install phase.

Established in 2002, Abode introduced its award-winning Pronteau instant hot water taps nearly a decade ago in 2016, making it well-placed to serve industry professionals with the latest innovations and hot tap advice at this year’s InstallerSHOW. Its commitment to research and development ensures it continues to offer Pronteau taps, which can complement current styles of furniture, surface and electrical appliance, to become an integral part of the overall kitchen living space. In fact, 2024 welcomes a series of style-oriented Pronteau taps by Abode including its award-winning Pronteau Scandi 4 IN 1, the UK’s first collection of Scandinavian-style instant hot water taps and recent winner of ‘Best Hot Water Tap’ at the 2024 Ideal Home Awards. In addition, the newly expanded Pronteau Industria range now means UK customers can purchase this industrial-style 3 IN 1 instant hot water tap in new contemporary Brushed Brass and Matt Black finishes.  

Adding a layer of luxury to the modern home, all Pronteau taps deliver 98° steaming hot water on demand to ensure full compliance with Part G(3) of the UK Building Regulations. Available with 3 IN 1 and 4 IN 1 functionality, Pronteau instant hot water taps also benefit from a range of designed-in features. These include the patented HotKey® Sensor Technology by Abode, deemed one of the safest ways to access instant hot water, PROBOIL intelligent hot water boilers with various capacity’s and toolless installation, cool touch technology, flow limitation, cold start technology, comprehensive product warranties and nationwide service offering expert support from dedicated Pronteau field engineers and knowedgable customer service team.

Pronteau by Abode offers a range of WRAS or KIWA approved instant hot water taps, plus all components within the Pronteau package are also Regulation 4 compliant; demonstrating Abode’s commitment to designing compliant products for the kitchens of tomorrow.

Leanne adds, “We wish to invite all show visitors to join us at the Hot Tap Advice Hub on Stand A14, to experience step-by-step product demonstrations that cover all aspects of design, installation, aftersales and maintenance. Given both the rich variety of housing stock in the UK and how varied personal tastes can be, the market in general needs to be able to keep pace and know all the options available when specifying and fitting an instant hot water tap.”
