Mixer Taps for Kitchens

They have come a long way from being set as separate faucets for hot and cold water.

Depending on your pressure system, you can either select low pressure or high pressure tap. We are one of the largest distributors of Taps in UK. With over 100 plus choices, you can select the best product for you Kitchen. All brassware displayed here are manufactured by reputed brands and backed by an extended guarantee.

Know more about Kitchen Mixers

Kitchen mixer taps work by taking water from both the hot water and cold water supplies that come into the same pipe, where they get mixed. The proportion of hot-to-cold water needs to be set by the user. The quantity of hot and cold water required is controlled by levers. Some taps have individual levers for hot or cold water. Others have a single lever for which selection of hot or cold is made by turning it either left or right, or upside down. Sink mixers use pressure balance valves which maintain the pressure of both hot and cold water, thus, ensuring an even temperature at all times. This is essential because a shift in pressure on either would result in disastrous effects.

Contemporary kitchen fixtures include gooseneck sink spouts that easily rotate to accommodate two sinks and arch high enough to oblige larger pots and pans. Pull-out sprayers can be made to reach any area of a kitchen to facilitate clean-up as well as watering windowsill plants. Kitchen sink sprayers also have adjustable water flows consisting of an aerated stream and a more powerful water stream for more intense cleaning jobs. With a plethora of taps available, including traditional, modern, pull-out sprays and LED versions, there is one that suits every kitchen design. Made from durable and corrosion-resistant material, they come with long guarantee periods as well.

Love these. They look very classy and smart now they are installed. Levers are so easy to turn on (a big bonus for me as I suffer from RSI). Am one very happy bunny.

Nice looking tap however mine developed various faults, Astracast completely uninterested in helping saying it was outside warranty terms (leaked from spout, discouloured metal and dripping!) They even said that the spout was discontinued so they cannot even supply a replacement. i replaced whole tap with a Bristan Monza Brushed Mixer

After a what I must say was a fairly short internet search looking for a mixer tap to replace a very stylish but old (22 yrs) kitchen mixer tap; that at least offered us a 15 year guarantee, we came across this Cross-water Cucina at a very sensible price. Order duly submitted over the last bank holiday weekend, and was dispatched and received very promptly. It was fitted within 1/2 of our local registered plumber turning up and I must say that we are very pleased with the result. Here's hoping that it will last as long as its predecessor.
