KALDEWEI, Ahlen, April 2020. During the past few months in what effectively became a global lockdown it became apparent that frequent hand-washing was a key preventative measure against the spread of COVID 19, the coronavirus. This also meant the washbasins used for hand washing needed to be cleaned effectively too. Products with non-porous surfaces, such as KALDEWEI steel enamel washbasins and bowls came to the fore during this time. It is standard for every glass surface on KALDEWEI products to have a specific easy- clean finish, meaning that dirt and germs are rinsed away when washing your hands.
The surfaces on KALDEWEI products aren’t standard glass, in their factory the steel and glass are fused together into superior KALDEWEI steel enamel, a process that was developed over 100 years which now forms the perfect alliance for modern bathroom solutions. Steel is resilient and keeps its shape, whilst enamel is beautiful in look and feel and has the added advantage of being ultra-hygienic and easy to clean. It is these properties that enable KALDEWEI steel enamel to meet the exceptionally high standards of hygiene that were vital then and continue to be so now.
This has been confirmed by two independent tests commissioned by KALDEWEI; a study by Dr. med. Klaus-Dieter Zastrow and one conducted by TÜV Rheinland came to the conclusion: KALDEWEI enamelled bathroom solutions can be cleaned with ease and speed, leaving no residue – an obvious advantage when hygiene is paramount.
