After looking at the market it was clear that only two bath materials existed.
Acrylic, which is a soft plastic, was chosen for low cost. However, it’s flexibility and poor durability was always an issue. The surface was easy to scratch and, overall, it always had a ‘cheap look about it’. These shortcomings remain today. Cast Iron has been used for years. It gained a reputation for being the ‘real-thing’. However, cast iron has many drawbacks, such as excessive weight, incredible heat loss from the bathing water and a proneness to surface chipping.
After two years of development, Albion had it sorted. Made in their own factory, a new material was created from an amalgam of high technology resin and a special reinforced mineral. This material was named Iso-Enamel due to its high strength and hard surface.
An Albion bath is a multi-layered, making it strong without being too heavy. Each bath is reinforced internally, giving greater strength over other ‘cast-resin’ baths on the market. The surface is a high-gloss, bright white enamel which, compared to cast iron, is less prone to chipping. It is also harder and substantially more durable than acrylic. An Albion bath is approximately 1/3 the weight of a cast iron bath. Also, the material will insulate your bathing water - no more topping up with hot water!
Nothing compares to an Albion bath. Quality, strength & durability guaranteed.
