SILAG receives the „Red Dot Award: Product Design”, coveted the world over, for the garden watering design of the future. The North-Rhine Westphalia Design Centre recognised the SILAG product „Carrera Greenmaster Hose Connector” in July 2012 with the „Red Dot Award: Product Design 2012”, a quality seal acknowledged and coveted the world over.
In addition to talking purely about style, recognised experts also tested the feel of the products and their functionality and examined the ecological sustainability. The verdict of the international Red Dot Jury: “An ergonomic and needs-driven ease of manageability is what is visualized as a coherent whole in this hose connector.”
The design concept (designer Prof. Dr. Klose, Wuppertal) of the hose connector pursues the goal of avoiding the shortcomings of current hose fittings. This product solution with a registered patent was thus fitted with an integrated clamping screw and a water-stop valve.
Clamping itself is drip-free and tight-fitting. The jaws can be widened in the open position so that the hose can be fed in easily. All operating parts are designed to be easily gripped so that they are easy to use even with wet hands.
