The bathtub is the health equipment of choice for relaxation, whether it is whirlpool or not. Asymmetrical, rectangular, island or even corner, bathtubs are available in many shapes, but also in several materials which each have different advantages. If the palm of the popularity goes to synthetic materials, other more original materials have found their place in the heart of our bathrooms.
Synthetic material bathtubs
Acrylic is of course the reference material in most bathrooms: both economical and light, it is also very easy to maintain and offers a soft surface to the touch. Shock resistant (especially if it is reinforced with fiberglass), it is nonetheless quite sensitive to scratches. If you want to focus on longevity, opt for Toplax, Biocryl or Quaryl instead, which are reinforced acrylics. The first is fully recyclable, the second is particularly hygienic, while the last is both resistant and naturally non-slip. Polyethylene meanwhile, will be used to create light baths, and is fully recyclable, unlike acrylic.
Black resin bathtub
The resin on the other hand is comfortable thanks to its ability to retain the heat of the water, but is also very resistant and ecological. This is particularly the case with Solid Surface, which although it is easy to maintain, is nevertheless costly to purchase. The manufacturer Jacob FSHANSE offers them in particular, whether you are looking for a rectangular bathtub or an oval tub. Other equipment can be made from the same material, such as the washbasin, the basin or the shower tray.
