Volcanic bath erupts into UK market
A bath is still an important feature within any bathroom, particularly for those who seek an indulgent escapism from day-to-day trivialities. But how do you unite a luxurious bathing experience within an artistic bathroom centrepiece that is cost-effective? Simple. Meet the Etna freestanding bath.
When you behold the Etna for the first time you'll undoubtedly see an imaginative, contemporary bath with exceptional design features, including the 12 coloured light settings. However, its revolutionary concepts are hidden beneath this bold exterior, creating a bath that is energy and water efficient, making it a cost-saving bathroom product that is wholeheartedly environmentally friendly.
Using not just one, but two innovative technologies in its Swiss manufacturing, the Etna is a force to be reckoned with. Nano silver technology coats the bath's surface in a protective shield of nano particles that create an anti-bacterial layer which is also self-cleaning - a modern twist that will benefit every household. But perhaps the most sensational of technologies is the Etna system itself, which is connected to the central heating system of a house to create a bath that not only retains its water temperature but acts as a bathroom radiator too.
Once connected to your central heating, the Etna will radiate heat through its integral system of thread pipes, allowing you to indulge in a long, hot soak without the need for topping your water up. Furthermore, the heat radiated from the bath is enough to heat your bathroom, eliminating the need for underfloor heating or a bathroom radiator. This functionality also allows for installation outdoors on a balcony or in the garden, with the bath creating a stunning thermal spring as well as a truly distinguished feature wherever you choose to install it.
The elegant sides of the bath are rippled, which accentuates the tranquility and serenity that is emulated in the bathing experience. Furthermore, the choice of lighting provides a chromo-therapy bathing experience, which adds to the relaxation provided by the gently curved sides that support your back and the warmth provided by the bath surface.
Ultimately, this bath deserves to be named after one of Europe's largest volcanos as it is a force of nature in itself. Not only aesthetically designed to create an unwavering impact but featuring stunning technologies, the Etna is a must-have for anyone who desires a bath that will create a visual impact but one that doesn't detract from its functionality and efficiency.
Also available with matching freestanding or countertop basins or as a stand-alone bath without the lighting or heating, the Etna can be tailored to suit a range of bathroom designs.
