Roman's 10 Out of 10
Renowned British shower designer and manufacturer, Roman, has announced the launch of a new range of designer shower enclosures, Decem. The range is a culmination of everything the manufacturer has learnt about showering over the last 28 years, to present an unrivalled collection, which also offers a series of design options.
Latin for 10, the Decem range offers a style statement for the bathroom. The collection features 10mm thick glass, chromed brass components, a frameless finish and stands at a height of 2000mm. Cleverly, the range also offers a choice of hardware options. Designers and consumers can choose between square or round hinges and designer handles, to achieve a look to suit the space.
The Decem collection comprises hinged door enclosures, a series of wetroom panels and a stylish bath screen. All products have been designed and styled to the highest specification.
The Decem hinged door enclosures are available in a wide variety of configurations, to suit the alcove or corner space. They feature self-closing hinges for a superior action and an integrated 'Water Safe system' which presents the maximum water integrity available for a minimalist enclosure.
With a range of sizes and footprints available, the door can be installed alone, or combined with side and inline panels, to beautifully fill the available space. The enclosures can be installed straight-to-floor or to tray, to suit requirements.
The Decem wetroom panels also present a series of design options, with the choice of concealed or exposed profiles, together with the option of a return panel. The concealed profile allows you to create a totally frameless finish as the profiles are channelled into the wall, so only the glass is visible - this makes the glass appear to float. For a quick and easy installation, the panel also offers the traditional exposed profile.
The panels can be installed straight-to-floor, to create a true wetroom, offering a stylish easy access solution. Alternatively you can create a popular 'simulated' wetroom and install the panels to a low level shower tray, for a quick and effortless installation, which still achieves a minimalist look.
Completing the Decem range is the hinged bath screen. The hinged bath screen features self-closing hinges, which are available in a choice of square or curved finishes. It also incorporates Roman's Water Safe System, which helps to guide the water back into the bath tub, for unrivalled water integrity and ensuring the screen is approved for use with power showers. The hinged bath screen opens outwards to allow access for easy cleaning.
When designing the range, Roman considered the restrictions of the UK bathroom, so the Decem range offers installers 15mm of adjustment within each profile. All products also incorporate pre-coated glass protection as standard, for easy cleaning and lasting optical clarity. They also carry Roman's service backed Truelife Lifetime Guarantee.
As with all Roman enclosures, bath screens and wetroom panels, the Decem range will be manufactured in the UK.
"We are delighted to finally unveil our Decem Range," enthuses David Osborne, Managing Director at Roman. "Much thought, planning, research and preparation has gone into the design of the range, to ensure it presents an unrivalled specification. We have carefully designed and sourced components of the highest quality; considered installation site conditions, building in some adjustment within the profile and styled the range to ensure it perfectly meets and shapes current bathroom style trends.
"What sets Decem apart from our other product ranges, is that for the first time we present the end user or designer with a series of design options, giving them opportunity to create an enclosure to perfectly suit their space, without the additional costs associated with a totally bespoke product."
