Rua Aurajet Shower Handset (Chrome)
Looks amazing, feels divine. Aurajet®, our most advanced, most invigorating shower experience ever.
Aurajet® technology delivers a full-bodied spray with maximum body contact and all-over warmth. It is our most advanced, most invigorating shower experience yet.
Rua has a WELS 4 star rating and is tested to perform well at low pressure situations with an efficient flow rate of 7.5L/min
Unleash the Power Shower
Rua is the next generation shower technology from Methven. With a stylish exterior guaranteed to be the envy of guests and unique water saving technology for superior body coverage, Rua creates a warmer, more stimulating and more satisfying shower experience.
Designed and engineered in New Zealand, Rua builds on on all our lifestyle-enhancing innovations in the bathroom space. Rua’s shape uses geometric styling and softens the appearance of the shower head with slightly rounded edges, creating a truly unique and contemporary look for your bathroom.
Rua generates bigger water droplets which create up to 20% more of the total spray force than conventional showers*.
Rua’s innovative spray system provides better stimulation of the nerve endings, particularly the areas where nerve endings have a higher density (e.g. face). This gives you better efficiency in cleansing and rinsing and more even pressure on the skin.
This Rinse Efficiency video shows how the Aurajet spray pattern creates more coverage than conventional showering*.
Aurajet technology helps Rua to generate up to 20% more total spray force*. It has twice the amount of a surface area of water in contact with the skin*:
- Better feeling of COVERAGE
- Better feeling of WARMTH
- Better stimulation of nerve endings
- Better evenness of spray pressure on skin
- Better overall experience
Rua utilizes hidden nozzles which generate individual jets of water that collide against precisely angled surfaces within the elegant contours of the showerhead. At that moment of collision, the water travels across the surface edge and launches out from the channel, creating stunning fans of water.
- 13 evenly spaced “Invisible” holes (nozzles) made of silicone rubber, generate single jets of water
- These jets of water travel a short distance before hitting a precisely engineered hydrophobic “impinging surface”
- When the jets hit the impinging surface, it spreads out into a fan-shaped sheet of water
- These impinging surfaces are all set at different angles, creating an even spray with Fan are wide enough to fill the gaps yet leave a very defined and clean spray perimeter – limited spray “noise”
With water shortage being a global concern, water conservation and efficiency of water use were paramount when we were developing Rua. Rua is the culmination of years of research combined with the extensive knowledge and expertise of our engineering team.
When we started to design Rua, we decided it should conform to the new California State Energy Commission’s regulations and delivers a flow rate of 1.8 gallons per minute or less. And we did it – Rua is the first shower with Aurajet technology to use less than 1.8 Gpm.
With Rua we all can take better care of water consumption just by taking a shower. And saving water no longer means a bad shower experience – we have made sure of that.
Today, with our increasingly hectic and constantly connected lives, the bathroom has become a room of considerable importance. It is the one room where we can retreat, shut the door, take time out and be ourselves. It is our sanctuary of personal wellbeing. It is important that we do what we can to enhance this very personal moment, and deliver the best shower experience possible.
RUA vs. CONVENTIONAL SHOWER
Conventional showers generally distribute water in sparse, uneven individual streams that result in inconsistent skin contact and localized force.
In addition to that most of the standard showerheads in the US use 2.5 Gallons of water per minute (according to US Environmental Protection Agency). On the contrast, Rua uses 1.8 Gpm. This is 30% less than 2.5 Gpm.
RUA vs. NEBIA
Other existing shower technologies can save water but the experience is often compromised. Weak water mists and clouds can lose heat faster. This equates to less warmth and therefore a poorer overall showering experience.
Rua is a water saving shower without compromise. The beauty is in the way we create unique fans of water to deliver a truly amazing showering experience, all without using any more water.
