Price range: from €119

Material: Stainless steel with brushed finish.

Key facts: Available from 150mm to 1500mm wide. The blade has to be installed level to create an even flow of water across the width of the blade.  The flow of water reduces as the height of the water blade is increased. Most water blades sizes are available in dual entry, whilst the longer 1200 and 1500 are rear or bottom entry inlet for the water – the pipework has to connect to the water blade from the pump situated in the reservoir.  Uplighting gives a stunning effect as the water comes over the blade.
