Finishes

finish chrom

CHROME (.000)

Time tested polished Chrome is the hardiest of all finishes. To protect the polished surface against corrosion the first step in the electroplating process is a layer of nickel. After that a layer of chrome is applied. Use Simichrome to clean the finish and Flitz Wax to protect the finish from spotting.

finish mink

MINK (.095)

Mink is an electroplated surface, which makes the product appear in an elegant anthracite. It is in terms not quite as hard as chrome, but to chemical cleaning agents more resistant and not tarnishing. To protect the polished surface against corrosion the first step in the electroplating process is also a layer of nickel. Use Simichrome to clean the finish and Flitz Wax to protect the finish from spotting.

finish platinum

PLATINUM (.065)

The colour of Platinum is very similar to Polished Nickel. Nickel is applied first, but because Nickel is not a permanent finish, we cover the surface with Platinum. Platinum is very exclusive and more expensive than gold. Platinum is very resistant to corrosion and shows high abrasion resistance. Clean with Simichrome and wax the surface with Flitz Wax to avoid spotting.

finish bronze

BRONZE (.011)

Unlike all the other electroplated surfaces, the Bronze colour is achieved by a process of dipping the brass parts in a special bath with alkaline fluid. This process turns the brass components to a dark brown colour. Then it is brushed by hand to turn it into a unique item. Finally a powder coating is applied for durability and to seal the surface with a satin finish. Use soft soap and water for cleaning, never use abrasives or Softscrub. Apply wax as needed and always wipe dry after use to avoid spotting.

finish mink mat

MINK MAT (.096)

The same procedure as Mink finish, but the surface is then brushed to give it a sumptuous mat look. Clean with soft soap and water and avoid rubbing the surface with anything other than a soft cloth. Lightly apply a spray on wax and avoid buffing. Pat the wax off rather than shine the surface.

finish platinum mat

PLATINUM MAT (.066)

The same procedure used to create Platinum is used to create Platinum Mat, but brushed by hand to achieve the mat finish. Because of this hand prepared process, each item is unique. Clean with soft soap and water and avoid rubbing the surface with anything other than a soft cloth. Lightly apply a spray on wax and avoid buffing. Pat the wax off rather than shine the surface.

finish sunshine

SUNSHINE (.040)

On top of the basic layer of Nickel a 18 carat Gold plating follows. Included in the Gold alloy is “Indium“. Indium gives the surface more stability and hardness in comparison to Gold. Clean with soft soap and water and avoid rubbing the surface with anything other than a soft cloth. Lightly apply a spray on wax and avoid buffing. Pat the wax off rather than shine the surface. This is a living finish with no warranty.

finish sunshine mat

SUNSHINE MAT (.041)

The same procedure as Sunshine finish, but the surface is then brushed to give it a sumptuous mat look. Clean with soft soap and water and avoid rubbing the surface with anything other than a soft cloth. Lightly apply a spray on wax and avoid buffing. Pat the wax off rather than shine the surface. This is a living finish with no warranty.

finish gold

GOLD (.020)

On top of the basic layer of Nickel a 24 karat Gold plating is applied. The world still considers Gold to be the most luxurious of all finishes. Due to the properties of Gold being malleable, clean with soft soap and water, and avoid rubbing the surface with anything other than a soft cloth. Lightly apply a spray on wax and avoid buffing. Pat the wax off rather than rub the surface. This is a living finish with no warranty.

finish antique gold

ANTIQUE GOLD (.025)

After Gold plating, an additional process is applied with silver ingredients that let the product turn completely bluish. It is then polished by hand. After polishing, the blue colour only remains in the deeper recesses of the product. Due to the properties of Gold being malleable, clean with soft soap and water and avoid rubbing the surface with anything other than a soft cloth. Lightly apply a spray on wax and avoid buffing. Pat the wax off rather than rub the surface. This is a living finish with no warranty and only available for the collection APHRODITE and CRONOS.

Empire Crystal 02

CRYSTAL HANDLES

The right care retains the luster and clarity of the high-quality crystal handles. Do not use glass or window cleaning agent. Use a neutral liquid soap diluted with warm water. The detergent-water solution should not be hot as the crystal may get blind otherwise. Clean with a soft cloth only and gently wipe the crystal handles. Never use dry dusters - scratches may rubbed into the surface by fine particles. Then carefully rinse the crystal handles with clear, cold water and finally dry them off with a soft, lint and dust-free cloth.


Care intructions

SOLID CRAFTSMANSHIP – MADE IN GERMANY

Jörger fixtures are crafted from finest grade, special alloy brass. The brass is cast into blanks which are then formed and polished by hand. Only after many precise procedures and strict quality controls, does each piece obtain its finish in the electroplating or the paint shop. Only then we will pass the product - carefully packaged - on to you.

HIGH PERFORMANCE AND EXCLUSIVE DESIGN

Our products combine technical perfection with exclusive design. The accessories especially fitted for every Jörger design series allow you to create an individual and harmonious decor for your bathroom. For more than 100 years, we have taken pride in our careful manufacturing and finishing combined with individual design to make unique products for your bath.

LONG LASTING BEAUTY – THE RIGHT CARE

Daily, pat the fixture dry with a soft cloth after each use — this is the single most important care you can give any finish! Immediately remove any residues of personal care products with clear water. Only use detergents that are specifically intended for this area, such as neutral liquid soap or weak non-alcohol detergent-water solution. The cleaning product should be applied or sprayed onto a cloth or sponge, never directly on the surface. Dosage and duration are based on necessity and selected product; follow the manufacturer's instructions and do not mix cleaning products. Avoid all cleaning products that contain abrasive, corrosive, ammonia, acid, bleach and alcohol (for example based on hydrochloric, formic, acetic or phosphoric acid or chlorine bleaching) as well as dry dusters or sponges with an abradant coating. Cleaning products may continue to harm damaged surfaces.

APPLY PROTECTIVE COATING REGULARLY

Protect painted and galvanized surfaces (e.g. gold, platinum or chrome) by applying a thin layer of liquid wax without polishing additives – slightly sprayed, but not rubbed. The protective film promotes and preserves the surface shine. Do not use this treatment on matt finishes.

REMOVING SCALE DEPOSITS

Regular cleaning prevents calcification. Hard water deposits and dirt in aerators and showerheads can be easily removed. Gently loosen the aerator with a wrench. Tap out the sieves and then place in a vinegar bath for a few minutes. Vinegar is a mild acid which will harm the finish with prolonged contact. Rinse thoroughly in running water. Almost all showers are equipped with an anticalcareous system: deposits dissipate when wiping over the nubs. Clean showerhead sieves may also be cleaned in a mild soap and water solution. Lime scale can be remo­ved by soaking sieves in a 10% vinegar solution at room temperature for 2-5 hours. Afterwards, rinse thoroughly in running water.

MAINTENANCE

Be sure to activate all angle and concealed gate valves every three month. Work all thermostats through the whole temperature range with taps fully opened to keep the regulating capsule in good working order. Do not dismantle the thermostat, but have the entire system checked by a professional plumber once a year.

SPECIAL CARE FOR EXQUISITE SURFACES

Gentle care


For the perfect care of finishes we recommend "GENTLE CARE". The special liquid cleaning product maintains finishes as gold, sunshine, platinum, mink or polished nickel gently and thoroughly. Place a few drops of "GENTLE CARE" on a soft, damp cloth and rub the surface to be cleaned without pressure. Leave it for a few moments and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Then polish with a soft, dry cloth. Possibly repeat the procedure several times should crustings still exist.
