For many design connoisseurs, a steel bath is a must-have for a modern bathroom. The sleek, minimalist shapes available in steel lend themselves to contemporary design, and the enamel finish is an attractive upmarket detail for any luxury bathroom. Steel baths are strong, rigid, and exceptionally hard wearing: with proper care they’ll stay looking as good as new for many many years.
Steel enamel baths are created from a solid sheet of steel which is pressed into shape, and then bonded to a glass coating at extremely high heat.
Steel baths generally range from 1.8 to 3.5 mm, though it’s possible to find even thicker baths. When choosing the thickness of a bath, it’s a balancing act between strength, weight, and costs. Because steel baths have built-in structural integrity, even baths at the thinner end of the scale will be strong and rigid. Anything above 2 mm is a good quality steel bath.
