OUR STRENGTH: KALDEWEI STEEL ENAMEL.

A UNIQUE MATERIAL WITH A 30 YEAR GUARANTEE.*

The perfect material for perfect design has a name: KALDEWEI steel enamel. Steel and glass – two entirely authentic and natural materials, used for centuries, and each with its own inherent material properties.

Steel signifies strength, toughness, robustness and optimum ductility. Glass is highly resistant to chemical or thermal stress and has an excellent appearance. KALDEWEI steel enamel combines robust steel and tough glass to form an inseparable bond harnessing the strengths of each material in perfect symbiosis. As a pioneer consistently pushing the boundaries to make the good even better, KALDEWEI has been steadily developing, refining and optimising the special formula and manufacturing processes of KALDEWEI steel enamel for almost a century now. KALDEWEI steel enamel guarantees lasting quality that remains visible, tangible and treasured day after day.

Heat resistant

Burning and smouldering objects do not leave marks on the surface.

Scratch and impact resistant

KALDEWEI steel enamel combines the inherent properties of steel and glass, making it highly resistant to mechanical stress.

Easy to clean and hygienic

The glass-hard surface of KALDEWEI steel enamel leaves no place for dirt and bacteria to settle, meaning it is supremely hygienic and easy to clean.

UV resistant

Thanks to the unique material properties of KALDEWEI steel enamel, our products retain their original colour without fading or yellowing.

100 % sustainable

Bathroom products made of KALDEWEI steel enamel are produced from the natural materials glass and steel, and can be fully recycled.

Chemical resistant

Common household detergents, cosmetics or bath additives will not harm KALDEWEI steel enamel.

TYPICAL KALDEWEI STEEL ENAMEL: EXCELLENT HYGIENE WITH MINIMUM EFFORT.

A bathroom should be a place where people thrive – not bacteria. Constantly changing temperatures and humidity levels in the bathroom create an environment with critical hygiene requirements that frequently offers the ideal breeding ground for microorganisms. KALDEWEI steel enamel prevents even microscopically tiny scratches where bacteria can settle. All it takes is a damp cloth to clean the surface for exceptional hygiene with minimum effort. General dirt particles and limescale are easily washed away when taking a shower.

EXCELLENT MATERIAL IS THE BEST GUARANTEE.

Seamless surfaces look appealing, but are also superior in structural aspects. Whereas tiled shower floors were still considered stylish up until a few years ago, today’s aesthetic and innovative product solutions have come to set entirely new standards. Produced with state-of-the-arttechnology using high-quality materials, enamelled shower surfaces clearly outperform tiles in wet areas. An objective comparison that goes into detail clearly shows the differences.
