KOHLER® Real Rain overhead shower panel re-creates the sensation of a refreshing summer downpour—delivering an experience that is cleansing, rejuvenating, and natural.
The development of Kohler’s unique Real Rain shower panel started with an in-depth exploration of rain itself. Our teams studied how rain falls, how its droplets differ in size, and even those subtle shifts in the air and the scent of the earth before and after a downpour.
Kohler engineers consulted NASA recordings of rain on the ocean and experimented with water, gravity, and surface tension. Through rapid prototyping and with minute attention to detail, our design team developed a distinctive square-shaped ceiling panel fitted with a silicon sprayface dotted with 775 randomly positioned concave nozzles able to release droplets of water that feel and sound like rain.
Like natural rainfall, the Real Rain shower panel relies on the pull of gravity to send its droplets earthward. A specially designed reservoir fills with water; the droplets fall softly at first—just as rain does—gradually gathering in strength until the shower feels, sounds, and looks like a warm summer rain shower. For comfort, our designers even introduced a rain-free zone so you can breathe easily while standing in the middle of an invigorating Real Rain downpour.
Offering flexibility, the Real Rain shower experience can be used with traditional manual controls or can be configured digitally for use with the KOHLER® DTV+™ digital showering system. The unique Real Rain deluge feature works by gathering water while the primary rain feature is running and then, at the push of a button, releasing a half-gallon deluge for eight exhilarating seconds.
In true Kohler style, the Real Rain overhead shower panel blends technology, innovation, and aesthetics to deliver a shower experience unlike any other.
