Overview: CEA Built-In Parts + Rough Valves  

The CEA collection of bathroom and kitchen taps stems from functional technology and production re-interpretation. The expertise of CEA Design comes from field knowledge in construction, research for new materials, operation systems, hydraulic technologies, manufacturing techniques and registered utility patents.

CEA built-in parts, also known as CEA rough valves, were designed to ensure fast and easy installation, precision and a reduction of time on the job site.  For CEA built-in part specification sheets and installation instructions, please reach out to us for more information.

Ceadesign Model: PTR – Plumbing Telescopic Regulator

The PTR rough by Ceadesign is a universal built-in part that allows adjustability in its depth into the wall.  It is interchangeable with a number of CEA tapware collections. Using this built-in part by CEA avoids the use of extensions and cutting tools to adapt the taps, which also reduces installation time. The PTR is a CEADESIGN utility model.  Certifications: Intertek and WaterMark

Ceadesign Model: PWF – Pipe Water Fitting

The PWF is a universal fitting that enables a quick and easy connection of the faucet tap to the wall. With PWF system, the mixing parts of the tap, including the cartridge, are located at the front of the wall. The PWF is fully adjustable and this removes problems when fitting the tap to  un-even or un-level walls. It also makes any future service requests easier.  The PWF is a patent by CEADESIGN for industrial invention.

Ceadesign Model: UCS – Universal Cartridge System

The UCS by CEA is a universal built-in part without that is interchangeable across the Cartesio, Innovo, Milo360 and Gastone collections. This rough part allows the maximum water temperature to be locked by adjusting a metal ring placed on the mixer cartridge. The UCS is a patent by CEADESIGN for industrial invention.

Ceadesign Model: Acqua Stop System

The thermostatic mixer with Acqua Stop System helps to avoid the plumbing closure with the cartridge pulling out for maintenance issues. This CEA product is designed for the U.S. market with a patent for industrial invention.

Ceadesign Model: INC

The INC is a fixing bracket used to anchor CEA shower and bath tub fittings, which can include water spouts, hand showers and shower heads on the wall or ceilings.

Ceadesign Model: BOX

The BOX installation system is used for wall-mounted faucets and includes a built-in temporary box where the supply hoses of the hot and cold water is located. The BOX system also allows for al working parts of the tap to be located at the front of the wall, which assists with any future service requests.

Ceadesign Model: Hydroplate – CEA Flush Plates

Designed by Natalino Malasorti, the hydroplate by CEA is a collection of plates and valves for flush system, made of AISI 316L stainless steel.  It is available with or without water jet toilet cleaner, some compatible with Geberit carriers. All the products in the HYDROPLATE collection guarantee higher water savings thanks to the cistern dual flush. They are highly hygienic with the placing of water jet toilet cleaner inside the flush plates, avoiding contact with toilet germs and bacteria. The CEA WC plates are equipped with a double safety valve against leakages or possible pressure jumps, making them durable and reliable.

Technological Innovation:

CEA, also known as, “Centro Energie Alternative” invests in research and development of technological solutions for project design. The origins of CEA Design expertise can be traced back to experiences in the plumbing industry, installation and architectural demands. CEA bath products aim to support construction work through simplification of installation and long-term operational results.  CEA has several industrial and utility patents that enable a flexible approach to construction planning.

Culture of Product:

With each real-life experience, CEA takes feedback and creates new product ideas. With constant themes of technological innovation, sustainability and aesthetics being the founding elements of research and development.  Product training is organized with architects, design studios and CEA re-sellers.

Timeless Design: 

The collections of CEA bath and kitchen faucets have simple and linear geometry to demonstrate a deep knowledge of design with architecture beyond time.  Tap designs and collections from top architects and designers, who have total freedom to chose their style and shape their ideas into reality.

100% Made in Italy: 

CEA production facility is in the Bassano del Grappa district of Northeast Italy.  This part of Italy is a worldwide renowned area, known for mechanical engineering traditions, where quality and reliability derive from local synergies.  The production process of CEA Design is characterized by precision and manufacturing engineering: simplicity and craftmanship guide innovation and sustainability.


CEA produces their bathroom faucets and fixtures in AISI 316L stainless steel, which is a recyclable and high performing material. The raw material has low levels of carbon, so CEA does not need the use of hot melting, painting, galvanic treatment or other chemical processes to produce.  By producing the CEA tap ware this way, it does not release any toxic elements, and can be totally recyclable.

Eco Friendly:

Since CEA uses AISI 316L stainless steel, it’s a durable and hard material, which guarantees a long life.  The products are resistant to scratches, nicks, external agents, salt and sulfurous waters.

Water Saving:

In the CEA Design product range, water flow can be adjusted with aerators and limiters with progressive cartridges. Especially in the state of California, where CalGreen laws need to be met, CEA taps are water-saving and can meet code.

Low Environmental Impact:

At the CEA production facility, they adopted cold working methods and CNC machines for stainless steel manufacturing. All the energy that powers production is certified clean and water is saved, with waste separated to be recycled.  This reduces the impact on the ecosystem.
