Acid, Impact & Scratch Proof
Its Child proof! The steel enamel is acid & impact resistance that is scratch proof (we’ve thrown rocks at one before, all in the name of science of course!). It is also burn resistant so that any candles which accidentally fall into the bath do not leave permanent marks.
There is no static when you hope into a steel bath, therefore the bath doesn’t attract dust & thus is an easy surface to maintain & clean. We have a handheld shower on the side of ours and wash it with water keeping it clean is simple.
30 Year Guarantee
Both Bette and Kaldewei baths have 30 year guarantees, while we don’t know anyone that has actually had one for 30 years, we think its fair to say your bath is going to go for longer than your desire for your next bathroom renovation.
