Scandi-E SPEC

  • Safety first: Scandi-E features the company’s patented HotKey® Sensor Technology, one of the safest ways to access or deny access to instant steaming hot water. Without the HotKey® in operation the instant hot water cannot be activated, so end users can hide it away or up high from little ones for optimum safety. Controlled via a discreet HotKey® fob a proximity sensor hidden inside the body of the tap detects when the HotKey® is near, activating the boiler to pump steaming hot water through a separate central channel to the spout. Without it, the tap becomes an ordinary 3-way mixer.
  • Multigenerational design: HotKey® is great for anyone with dexterity difficulties or conditions like arthritis, as users can avoid pushing down, turning or sliding in order to trigger the water flow.
  • Refreshingly easy: Filtered Cold push button, a new way to provide easy access to filtered cold water using a 4 IN 1 Pronteau tap. This unique mechanism is super simple to use and ensures the water instantly arrives at the optimal flow rate of 2l/m.
  • Small yet mighty: the PROBOIL.4E boiler has been designed exclusively for the new Pronteau 4 IN 1 HotKey® range by Abode. Packed with a series of features including the biggest capacity yet at 4L, which delivers up to 100 cups per hour! Fast and easy to install, this model offers toolless installation, low running costs and quick re-boil times, plus simple intuitive digital controls, filter life indicator display and colour coded push fit connectors. Its compact size also means it will fit in a Belfast sink base cabinet.  
  • Cool touch technology: located inside the tap to create a barrier between the flow of steaming hot water and surface of the spout so it’s always cool to touch!
  • Flexible: 180° spout rotation for trouble-free cup filling, easy food prep and pot washing.

  • Flow limitation: Providing aerated hot and cold water with optional 5l/m flow limitation, which helps to minimise sink splash back and reduce overall water consumption. Pronteau Scandi-E can be purchased with or without a flow limiter and is designed to fit into the base of the spout and only limit the supply of domestic hot and cold water.
  • Water optimisation: All Pronteau taps are supplied with the company’s premium water optimisation filter that offers supreme water filtration and scale control to give the best protection, and increased capacity. Offering a capacity of 1500L, end users can set the filter to match the hardness of water in their area and ensure peak performance and longevity.
  • Zero plastic: Designed with 4 IN 1 functionality, users can access filtered cold drinking water straight from the tap so they can ditch the plastic and support the environment by reducing single use plastic in the home!
  • Recyclable: All Abode filters are part of the company’s free of charge Filter Recycle Scheme. Simply send the expired filter back to Abode, gratis via Royal Mail, and enjoy a no cost and straight-forward solution for both the home and environment!
