David Hance, Group Chairman and Founder of Crosswater Group, designed the latest range of professional brassware in collaboration with architects and specifiers of luxury bathrooms.


A sleek, unassuming yet sophisticated design with appeal to the architect, interior designer, specifier, and residential developer. Coming in choice of two finishes and with many technological advanced features making the new Mike Pro range from Crosswater an ideal choice for hotels, public buildings and luxury homes.

After a careful study of the commercial market, Crosswater recognised that there was an opportunity for a high design collection of brassware. As well as timless styling and high quality performance, this sector requires brassware to satisfy any number of technical, water saving and safety criteria. Consequently all products feature WRAS compliant components, shower valves are fully TMV2 approved and water saving features are included as standard or an option where required. The product itself is supported by a raft of back up materials including CAD drawings, exploded views, dimensional drawings,animated images all backed by a specialist website and brochure.


Elegantly simple in shape with gently curved spouts promoting outstanding water delivery; responsive easy-to-use levers, featuring the latest in ceramic disc control technology, Mike Pro is a complete basin, bath and showering collection in bright chrome or smart brushed stainless steel. David Hance, Group Chairman of Crosswater and lead designer on the project sums up the ethos of the brand, “Mike Pro is for bathrooms and washrooms that are as beautifully crafted as they are designed, with fabulous performance and inbuilt water saving features.  The collection has been developed using feedback and suggestions from renowned architects, interior designers, installers and specialist bathroom retailers.  This striking range is anchored with strong, enduring architectural themes that will appeal to professional specifiers of luxury homes and hotels.”


Mike Pro includes a full range of brassware options to provide a solution for many varied bathroom projects and applications. Basin taps include mini, tall and wall mounted, one, two and three tap hole. Bath options feature the sector leading Crosswater over flow filler and bath handsets, while the showering offer features one, two or three outlet recessed thermostatic shower valves. At the heart of each shower valve is one of the world’s foremost temperature regulation engines that provides smooth and precise control over the water temperature in everyday use whether residential or high traffic hotel applications. The valve cartridge (used in all Crosswater recessed valves) gives optimum temperature regulation and safety in accordance with British standard NHS D08 and is designed and produced to fully conform to the requirements of TMV2 and 3.


There is a dedicated brochure and website for Mike Pro complete with images and technical downloads.
