Royal Arcade over-bath shower is truly stunning
Arcade is the truly timeless brand set to provide the ultimate in luxury for any traditional or contemporary setting. This latest stunning piece, the Royal Freestanding over-bath shower temple, is an elegant alternative to the freestanding Piccadilly shower temple, and is yet another example of the striking design and quality of the range.
Like every Arcade piece, the Royal freestanding over-bath shower is hand finished with exceptional care using the finest materials and manufacturing processes. The hardwearing nickel finish is also used throughout all complementing brassware, fittings and accessories.
This stunning over-bath shower-tower offers overhead showering, a hand hose, mist bars and 8mm safety glass with Easy Clean coating feature throughout. All metal parts are hand finished in nickel, using Arcade's own PVD Nickel process which gives a high quality, extremely durable result - adding real value to the product.
Durability is a key factor in selecting bathroom brassware. Nickel fell out of favour in the first half of the 20th century because it wasn't considered a durable material. Now most types of finishes - including nickel - are extremely durable due to a coating process called PVD (physical vapour deposition). All Arcade brassware are nickel plated via PVD.
PVD requires no clear top coats that will fade or dull also with the additional benefit of being environmentally friendly. It is four times harder than chrome which makes it corrosion and scratch resistant.
Measuring L990mm x W1650 xH2250, the Arcade Royal is suitable for use with water systems of pressure between three and five bar and also comes with a modern thermostatic valve - ensuring water is always delivered at a safe temperature.
