BETTE shower trays and baths chosen for luxury St James developments
Member of the Berkeley Group, St James, has chosen Bette enamelled steel bathroom products for a number of its luxury London developments. St James has established a reputation as a design-conscious developer regenerating brownfield sites, with its designs, not only creating desirable places to live, but also having a positive impact on the environment. Sustainability is vital to the way the company operates.
Bette specialises in the manufacture of high quality enamelled steel baths, shower trays and washbasins, all with a 30 year warranty. Sustainability is central to its approach and is demonstrated by the company's Environmental Product Declaration, which complies with ISO 14025 and EN15804.
Bette manufactures what it believes is the largest range of shower trays available, as well as offering bespoke sizes, and St James has selected Bette enamelled steel shower trays in seven sizes across three of its recent developments. The developer has also provided many residents with an exceptionally easy-to-clean and durable shower area by selecting shower trays with BetteUpstand; an enamelled steel upturn of the shower tray edge, which means that no silicone is required where the shower tray meets the wall tiles.
Bette's enamelled steel BetteShower Trays were selected for the company's Brewery Wharf development in Twickenham and the luxurious Hurlingham Walk and Hurlingham Gate developments in Fulham. Bette's enamelled steel BetteOcean and BetteStarlet baths were also selected for the Hurlingham Gate development.
Tracy Ogino, St James' product manager explains: why Bette products were chosen:
"The Bette brand has a long established history, is recognised worldwide and is known for its high quality, durable and timeless products. As housebuilders and homeowners ourselves, we can appreciate good quality design that stands the test of time."
Comments Bette UK Country Manager, Samantha Wake: "We are delighted that Bette was chosen to supply shower trays and baths for these high quality developments. Our award-winning steel/enamel baths, shower floors and washbasins have a 30-year warranty and are all finished in our BetteGlaze enamel, which is extremely smooth, durable and easy to clean.
"We pride ourselves on our extensive range of styles and sizes, including bespoke sizing, and have many features which add important benefits to bathrooms, such as our BetteUpstand."
