SCHELL is considered to be the inventor of the angle valve.
For many generations, fitters have trusted the know-how of Europe’s market leader for angle valve technology.
There are many reasons which speak for SCHELL’s brand quality.
The most impressive reason:
more than 500 million installed angle valves and appliance connection fittings are the best proof
that craftsmen, designers and architects have been relying on Europe’s No. 1
and on quality »Made in Germany« for generations.
Schell stands for "health responsibility".
Therefore, meeting the highest standards for drinking and process water is a matter of course.
For example, when manufacturing their products Schell only uses materials suitable for drinking water.
Nickel and lead contamination in drinking water due to inferior brass alloys?
Not a trace with Schell.
Uncompromising quality pays off, especially regarding assembly and operation.
Smart features, such as the pre-assembled thread beading, the self-sealing connection thread ASAG easy,
the double O-ring seal, the grease chamber or the cone compression connection with length compensation,
enables an expecially quick and safe assembly as well as extra easy operation even after years of use.
All these factors make Schell angle valves and appliance connection fittings practically maintenance-free.
Schell angle valves and appliance connection fittings are also exemplary regarding their sustainability and long life service.
Not only do they save up to 40% water due to innovative design solutions,
but they also guarantee a fine adjustment of cold and warm water.
This means no warm water is wasted and, as a result, there are also no unnecessary CO2 emissions,
which damage the environment.
Once installed, Schell products have always boasted a long service life, thanks to selected and high-quality materials.
The right quality, the right technology, the right choice.
And the design? That is right too! Because Schell products are also vissualy appealing.
Mentor in sustainability.
If you have a water protection area outside of your factory gates, as SCHELL, then you have been automatically bestowed the responsibility for nature. Therefore, for Schell it is an obligation to develop solutions that are one thing above all: sustainable.
Ultimately, sustainability is a key challenge for today’s and the future generations. Independent investigations have discovered that approx. 80% of the total life-cycle costs for a building are spent on operation and maintenance. This is where investments in water and energy-efficient fittings quickly pay off. Furthermore, maintenance and servicing costs play a decisive role.
SCHELL enjoys being renowned as the pioneer in the field of sustainable fittings. Thus, e.g. by using their products alone, it is possible to save up to 60% water. In addition, numerous fittings from SCHELL have been awarded the WELL label. This product classification introduced in Europe in 2011 provides information about the efficient and sustainable operation of a sanitary fitting. Hygiene also plays a vital role in the topic of sustainability Particularly in public sanitary rooms. Here, SCHELL provides numerous intelligent solutions. For example, contact-free washbasin, WC or urinal fittings.
At SCHELL, sustainability just does not mean the products. For example, their production processes take place in both their plants in the Sauerland. This saves them considerably in terms of logistics costs and helps nature by preventing avoidable environmental damage. Also self-evident for them is the resource-saving use of materials. An example of this is the fact that all brass swarf and burr from the production processes are collected and returned to the brass manufacturer.
