Spiral = Spirella

The company name has been derived from the construction of the first shower curtain rod. It had been invented by the company's founder especially for bathtub niches. Its mechanism is based on a metal spring which holds the rod in place by applying pressure on the opposite walls of the niche. The company was called "spirella" after the spiral shape of the spring.
