Hansgrohe recently attempted to set a new Guinness World Record for the “Most People Showering Simultaneously” at its Showerworld facility. The feat was the center attraction of the company’s annual “Kids Day” outing for company personnel and their families, held July 19 at its North American headquarters in Alpharetta, Ga.

With liquid soap in hand and the hot water running, employees, families and friends expected to become the largest group of people to ever take a personal shower together at the same time and in the same indoor setting, breaking the old record by more than 100.

All participants signed in before entering Showerworld and each was videotaped departing the facility after taking his or her shower. This documentation along with other materials was forwarded to Guinness in the United Kingdom, according to Jan Bruno, manager of training and development, who organized the event. She anticipates receiving official confirmation from Guinness that Hansgrohe has set a new record some time in September.

All of the fixtures inside Showerworld are equipped with the latest in green showering technology: Hansgrohe EcoAIR showerheads and hand showers that save water, energy and money - without sacrificing hygiene or comfort.

If confirmed, this would be the second Guinness World Record set by Hansgrohe. Twenty-five years ago, at the biennial ISH Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, the company successfully established a record for continuous showering by an individual (three days) at its show booth.
