Manufacture

How many bathroom companies actually design and manufacture their own products? Our extensive workshops allow the team of skilled craftsmen to produce and finish all our pieces to an unrivalled quality. This ‘in-house’ capability offers the opportunity to respond to our customers individual needs. We specialise in creative solutions to help achieve a genuine bespoke service. In fact, many of our favourite pieces were created in this way.

CAST IRON

First and foremost, cast iron is incredibly strong and durable and has been the material of choice for premium bath manufacture for over one hundred years. Weighing in at between 150kg and 200kgs, our cast iron baths can last a lifetime, making them a worthy investment. The complex techniques used to create a unique cast iron bath have remained unchanged for over a century and will stand the test of time.

Copper

Copper is the perfect material for handcrafting baths, as each is individually constructed from sheets of metal that are beaten, joined, rolled and polished. This makes the permutations for copper bath manufacture and design endless. Another advantage of copper, along with nickel and brass, is the fact that it is much lighter than its cast iron equivalent. Weighing between 40kg and 50kg means they can be easily manoeuvred and installed to upper floors. This makes them a practical choice for loft conversions or penthouse apartments.

Brass

Since Roman times, brass alloy was produced for a myriad of uses. Made from both copper and zinc, brass exudes a warm and comforting appeal, unequalled to other metals. Following the same manufacturing process as copper baths, these unique and handcrafted pieces are painstakingly hand finished in our workshops in Kent. From the glamour of highly polished brass, to the sleek look of brushed brass, you will find a finish to suit all tastes.
