54 different baths to choose from...
Back in 1992, Albion’s founders had a mission - to create the ultimate bathtubs. After studying the marketplace and analysing other baths it was clear that only two materials were available at the time. Acrylic, which is a soft plastic, had become popular in the 1970’s due to its ease of manufacture and low cost. This was coupled with acrylic’s ability to be made in different colours that were fashionable - who can forget those avocado and chocolate brown suites! However, acrylic’s inherent qualities fell short of what the customer really wanted. Its flexibility was always an issue. Many people reported a dread, even a fear, of taking a bath as they felt the tub might break under their weight. Also, people said that acrylic was easy to scratch and always had a ‘cheap plastic look about it’. These shortcomings remain today.
Cast Iron, has been used for approximately 120 years and had gained a reputation for being the ‘real-thing’ However, cast iron baths have many drawbacks, such as excessive weight, incredible heat loss from the bathing water and a proneness to surface chipping. Homeowners also found that modern liquid cleaners would immediately ruin the white interior surface. After two years of development, Albion had it sorted. A new material was created from an amalgam of high technology resin and a special reinforced mineral. Manufactured in our
own factory, this material was named Iso-Enamel due to its high strength and hard surface. This formulation, when mixed, is cast into moulds and allowed to harden. The result is a strong, durable and luxurious construction that will give years of bathing enjoyment. Also, Albion baths will keep your bath water hotter as the material insulates rather than loses heat. To this day, our patented process is unique and offers benefits that other materials cannot provide.
Our range of baths are split into two families: Roll Tops, having a soft rolled edge and Bull Nose which are characterised by a continuous form from inside to outside.
Our Roll Top baths can be finished to an exterior colour of your choice; from the Dulux Trade or Heritage range, one of our three exclusive burnished metallic finishes, or perhaps one of the new additions to our finishes - Polished Pewter or Aged Copper.
