Kaldewei European baths are like no other tubs. Made of 3.5mm steel and finished with a unique enamel finish so hard that it is not scratched by common bath substances, including metal rubbing against it. Using Californian Borax, Scandinavian quartz, feldspar, soda and the world’s biggest enameling furnaces, Kaldewei produces a surface that is guaranteed to remain durable for at least 30 years.
This glossy surface looks beautiful but is also super sanitary and easy to care for. Because it is so smooth bacteria don’t have a chance to settle and cleaning is a breeze. This surface combined with 3.5mm steel construction produces a unique tub offering many of the benefits of cast iron (glossy surface and solid heat conducting material) without the great weight. All Kaldewei baths and shower trays come with a 30-year guarantee.
Founded in 1918 by Franz Kaldewei the company began as a manufacturer of enamel for industrial uses. Kaldewei made its first freestanding bath in 1934. In 2009 Kaldewei introduced the “Conoflat”, the first enameled flush fit shower pan. Today the company continues to offer both freestanding and built-in tubs and shower pans.
The Kaldewei Competence Centre in Ahlen, Germany is a modern training and exhibition centre and international meeting place for Kaldewei customers, and especially for architects, planners, the wholesale trade and fitters. As well as changing themed exhibitions – the current one is Kaldewei innovations at the ISH 2009 – there is also a permanent presentation of baths and shower trays that gives an overview of Kaldewei’s entire product range.
Kaldewei also believes in sustainably manufacturing. Thanks to the environmentally compatible procedures used in manufacture, packaging, transportation and disposal, Kaldewei was the first bathroom fitter to be certified sustainable to ISO 14025 by the Institute Bauen und Umwelt e.V., the Institute of Building and the Environment.
