Bathroom sinks

  • When you install a bathroom sink with brackets, you attach the brackets in the wall and then "put" the bathroom sink on top of the brackets (which also will fixate the sink). While here, you have the possibility to choose how big the space between the wall and the bathroom sink should be. With our bathroom sinks from the Artic series, the brackets are completely hidden in the porcelain.
  • If you mount with bolts, you immediately attach the bathroom sink into the wall (which will fixate the sink directly to the wall). It is important that you know if the wall is properly reinforced for the type of montage you have chosen to use.

Bathroom sinks which are intended to be "built-in" is supposed to be installed from above, with a part of the sink's edge resting on the countertop.

Bathroom sinks which are mounted from the bottom get a totally flat surface.

Gustavsberg's range of bathroom sinks gives you two options. Both are intended for a countertop with a hole for the bathroom sink.

Bathroom furniture

You are able to combine furniture and porcelain how ever you like. Although, it is important to keep in mind that batroom sinks and bathroom cabinets are suited for one another. Make sure that the measurements for the sink and the cabinet conforms when you make your decision.

Make sure that you have a proper screening between the bathroom furniture and the shower. The furniture are moisture resistant but are not supposed to be drenched in water. Do not allow water to remain on the batroom furniture, wipe away the water with a dry cloth as soon as possible.

The Naturic faucet has two different types of temperature limitations. The one which is activated at delivery, is the ECO-temperature (comfort temperature) which is around 43°C. This temperature is adjustable. In order to get "full" temperature, you have to bring the lever fully to the left.

It is also possible to make a maxiumum temperature limitation. It is, for example, appropiate to use this specific function if young children will be using the faucet. You can combine a temperature limitation and the ECO-temperature. The temperature limitations is built-in in every Nautic faucet, but is not activated from the beginning.

The ECO-Tap-faucet has an energy-saving function, ECO flow, which, with help from a feather, limit the movemets of the lever.

All Gustavsberg's faucets are child-friendly. An individual recommendation would be that it is always more secure to use a thermostat faucet in the shower or in the bathtub. In this one, it exists plenty of security systems. Firstly, it has a temperature lock button at 38°C, but it is also possible, with the thermostat faucets from Gustavsberg, to make a limitation of the maximum temperature with the help from a setting behind the knob. Except from the maximum limitation, there is also an automatic shut-off feature if the cold-water supply should disappear (to prevent scaldning). Even our single lever faucets have several scalding-functions (Eco-temp and limitation of the maximum temperature). For more information, read about "How to remove the temperature latch on Nautic".

All the faucets from Gustavsberg are throughly tested, and all the tests that both we and Boverket, SP, have made shows that the lead precipitation is far below the limits. From the testresults, we can conclude that acidic water - with a pH below 6,5 - can increase the lead precipitation. If you have a well, it is important to regularly check the quality of the water. It is also good to let the water flush for a while until it is fresh and cold, before you use it. But there is no need to worry about the lead precipitation from Gustavsberg's faucets.

YES. If you empty the system properly of water, there is no problem for a single lever faucet to be left at the country house without heat. On the other hand, if you have used a thermostat faucet, you should always keep it heated.

The new symbol is the same type as the one used for white goods and the idea is that buyers, installers and consumers should get impartial help to choose from energy-efficient faucets. There is a lot of money and energy to be earned because a household can actually save up to 50 % of the energy for hot water by choosing a high ranked faucet. Gustavsberg's faucets Logic and Nautic have recieved high rating in the new way of labeling faucets. Learn more about the energy-symbols for faucets here.

Yes, our factory is situated in Vårgårda. We have, since 1921, manufactured pipe couplings and faucets. Except from the faucets, the couplings systems from Vatette is manufactured in the same factory.

This you can easily do by yourself.

The water connections are refered to the pipes that are connected to the incoming water. Our faucets have flexible water connections, they are well-known on the Nordic market and also simplifies the installation.

c-c is a measurement (”centre-centre”) which indicates the measurement that you have between the incoming hot- and cold pipes (wall mixers).

A diverter is found on bathtub faucets and regulates if the water should come from the tap faucet or the shower.

A lot of the steinless steal benches are so thin that a kitchen faucet with a tall tap easily can feel unstable. In our range of faucets, there is a brace that can keep the faucet stable even if it is constructed to a thin steinless steel surface.

Our RH levers for single lever- or thermostat faucets suits every faucet in the Nautic serie even though not all of them are presented in our catalog or web page.

You can always try to "exercise" the thermostat function by turning the lever from "full flow" of cold water to "full flow" of warm water. It is good to do this from now and then in order to grind functionality problems with the thermostat's disabilities. If "excercising" your thermostat is not helping, you may have to buy a thermostatic insert.


Unequal shower dimensions often make the order process more problematic. Here is one tip for getting ir right:

When you measure the size of two different sided shower enclosures, for example 90x80, mark an angle where you intend to place the shower on the floor and measure from left to the right.

Watch our instruction video "Planning & installation of a shower".

80x80 cm is our smallest shower cabin and the height is 200 cm. In order to montage a shower cabin without any problems, you have to have headroom for at least 205 cm.
