From the pages of PBM’s October edition, we take a look at the latest kitchen & bathroom products.
Epson Basin Mate
Epson, part of Thomas Dudley business TYDE, has launched its “all-new” Basin Mate leak-free basin waste seal kit. Manufactured from high quality materials, the kit includes a sealing ring, washer and seating and the company states that no paint, putty or mastic is required.
All of Epson’s basin wastes now come complete with the basin mate seal kit for a quick and easy installation, whilst it is also available on its own as a “perfect solution for a leaking waste that is already in place”.
The PanelStyle PVC wall and ceiling panelling collection is said to offer a cost effective and practical alternative to paint, wallpaper and tiles. With a total of 50 decors across four “easy-to-fit ranges” of Splashpanel, Splashpanel Narrow, Proplas and Proplas Tile, the collection is backed by a five-year domestic use warranty.
The products are described as 100% waterproof and low maintenance, whilst installation is said to be simple. The panels can also be fixed over existing surfaces like tiles to make “refurbishment or renovation projects fast and easy”.
International Decorative Surfaces
Malmo LVT flooring
Sound absorbent, suitable for use with water-piped underfloor heating systems and water- and R10 slip resistant, the newly-updated collection of Malmo stickdown luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring features 13 brand new designs that “combine fashion and function to make it the perfect choice for use in bathrooms”.
The new décors comprise seven planks, five tiles and a herringbone option, with designs spanning on-trend large square concrete and cement effect tiles, elegant woodgrains and a light grey herringbone.
The range is available in eight shapes and sizes, and is designed for “optimum functionality” due to being multi-level with an additional ledge inside the bowl which can be used in a number of ways. Furthermore, the sink comes in 10 Silgranit colours — Anthracite, Rock Grey, Alumetallic, Pearl Grey, White, Coffee, Tartufo, Jasmin, Black, and the ‘on-trend’ Concrete-style where every sink is unique as no colour gradient is exactly the same.
Spring 8 Enclosures
The Ideal Bathrooms ‘private label’ brand has built on its existing range with the addition of 16 new glass enclosures and doors under the Spring 8 name — featuring a glass thickness of 8mm. The new portfolio features all the benefits of the existing 6mm Spring collection — such as the EasyClean coating — and is available in a variety of sizes covering double door quadrant, sliding door, pivot door and side panel products.
