Abacus Bathrooms, Lustrolite and Elements display innovations at KBB 2018
Abacus Bathrooms, renowned for technical prowess in bathroom design and product portfolios, highlighted innovation by showing the build and fitting of individual systems; all guaranteed to result in the perfect bathroom in terms of style and function.
The stand was packed when we arrived and Alex Phillips-Baker, head of operations, told us that it had been like this throughout the show, with visitors keen to see first-hand the company's products and learn from the stand team just why the products have a reputation for being so easy to install.
An example is the new must-have for all basin and furniture installations, the unique patent-pending Modul Basin Fixing Frame. The Modul Basin Fixing Frame is designed to combine the secure mounting of both a basin and co-ordinating furniture unit in one frame. This product is designed for complete accessibility with a unique concealed serviceable waste trap and hot and cold water isolation valves.
Another example of the company's design innovation is the new Infinity Single-Fall wetroom shower tray. Developed to enhance the Elements wetroom range, the Infinity Single-Fall shower tray is thought to be the only product of its kind on the market today where the one-way fall of the tray and drain are fully integrated and waterproof.
This allows for straightforward installation and is provided with a complete installation kit which covers all on-site situations and will ensure your wetroom is secure and finished to the highest standard.
The ever-popular high gloss wall paneling from Lustrolite (pictured below), which can be applied to shower walls, bathrooms and kitchens, was also demonstrated and it comes in a good selection of colours. The fitters we spoke with told us they like Lustrolite because it is so lightweight and thus easy to handle - particularly in tight spaces where heavier products can prove difficult. The paneling is an advantaged multi-layer acrylic sheet that looks just like glass. However, it weighs a quarter less than traditional glass sheets and is 20 times stronger.
Abacus Manufacturing Group is a specialist in market-leading product portfolios for commercial and residential bathrooms with technical expertise at the core of all designs and systems.
