The company Richard Brink took part in the SHK Essen 2022 for the very first time, presenting products from its bathroom and kitchen systems.

Premiere at trade fair comeback

Company Richard Brink presents its bathroom and kitchen systems for the first time at the SHK Essen

Essen, 13/09/2022. The long wait had paid off: on 6 September 2022, it was finally time for the eagerly awaited return of one of the most important trade fairs for plumbing, heating, air conditioning and digital building management – the SHK Essen. And the many exhibitors filling its halls were all too happy to be in attendance. The company Richard Brink was also represented for the first time. The metal products manufacturer took the opportunity to present its bathroom and kitchen systems to the visiting trade professionals.

When Richard Brink’s red-and-white company colours were lit up on Tuesday morning in Hall 5, booth 5E31, the company had officially made its debut at the SHK Essen. And rightly so: with its bathroom and kitchen systems, the metal products manufacturer supplies optimal solutions for all kinds of projects in this field. Everything from industrial and kitchen channels for collecting large quantities of water through to discreet indoor dewatering channels, right over to innovative integrated systems for the shower area was on show.

A well-rounded portfolio

One of the highlights at the exhibition booth was the Lamina Indoor slotted channel. It appeals as one of Richard Brink’s more subtle dewatering options for indoor spaces and can be used wherever large quantities of water tend to accumulate. This might be the case, for example, in communal showers where the need to channel away water is consistently high, or in commercial kitchens for sporadically directing away waste water.

Moving up the scale, the Collecta industrial, shower and kitchen channel was also on display. The dewatering channel is made entirely from stainless steel; it has no problem withstanding even acidic liquids and invariably satisfies the high demands that come with its areas of application, such as commercial kitchens and industrial settings. Matching Collectus floor drains, either with vertical or horizontal nozzles, complete the solution.

The Atrium shower tray also attracted a lot of attention. The barrier-free integrated system provides customers with an all-in-one solution, complete with XPS gradient wedges, sealing and sound insulation strips, shower tray, sound insulation mat, siphon and fixed HT pipe as well as the XPS substructure. The necessary installation time is considerably reduced thanks to the prefabricated connection elements. The completely welded stainless steel base gives the Atrium an absolutely impenetrable second drainage level, which allows water to flow out via the welded drain pipe in the siphon.

Successful debut

Over the four exhibition days, despite the scaled-down parameters, the team from Richard Brink had a huge number of visitors stop by their booth, which gave rise to many extensive consultations and valuable personal exchanges. The metal products manufacturer was left feeling optimistic not only about its trade fair presence, but also about things to come: “Following the long break in face-to-face events, it is clear that the trade fair business now really has to pick up the pace. Having said this, the SHK Essen managed to present itself once again as a significant point of contact within the industry. This gave us a promising debut and left us feeling wholly positive about future in-person events,” says Managing Director Stefan Brink in summary.
