Steel Baths and Black Screens Added to Essential’s Portfolio

Date Added: 26.07.2022

Essential Bathrooms has strengthened its portfolio with the addition of a new range of bath screens, as well as new steel baths.

Matt Black Bath Screens

The bath screens, in stylish matt black, are the perfect addition to any modern bathroom, drawing upon the trend for an industrial, utilitarian look.

Designed to be both hard-wearing and easy to clean, all models are made from toughened safety glass with a 3M easy clean coating, which helps to retain an immaculate finish for longer, significantly reducing cleaning times. The 3M coating is an innovative coating which allows water to simply roll off the glass, taking with it any build-up of residue from soap or dirt.

Andrew Cotterill, Category Manager of Essential, said: “We’re excited to launch our latest bath screens to the market at an affordable and competitive price point.

“Matt black has proven to be a major hit over the past few years, adding a contemporary, modern edge to any style of bathroom.

“It also taps into the continuing trend for an industrial look and feel, and so I’m sure these latest additions will prove popular.”

All the screens come with a five-year guarantee, while the matt black finish offers an aluminium powder frame coating ensuring a long product lifetime with no peeling.

The new additions come in a range of five striking designs, each in either 5mm or 6mm thickness and with a height of 1400mm, and with a 90-degree fold direction.

Steel Baths

Meanwhile, targeting those customers who love a soak in the tub, Essential, which is the private label of Ideal Bathrooms, has also introduced a range of 10 new steel baths.

The Essential Steel Bath range combines the strength of steel construction with clean, crisp lines and edges to create a striking appearance.

The advantage of the metal over more modern acrylic models is that its greater conductivity keeps water hotter for longer, making it a more environmentally-friendly option.

Andrew added: “Steel baths are a great choice if you want a long soak without having to constantly top up with hot water.

“They’re also hard-wearing and durable, which makes our range of budget-friendly models the perfect investment for all sorts of customers. And because they’re coated with enamel to give them their high-shine finish, they’re less likely to get chipped or scratched too.

“Both the screens and the baths fulfil Essential’s remit to offer stylish, practical bathroom solutions at competitive prices, and we’re sure they’ll be a big hit.”

The range of 10 Essential steel baths comes in three sizes – 1500mm x 700mm, 1600mm x 700mm and 1700mm x 700mm – all with a 25-year guarantee.


Essential’s new steel baths are included in the Everyday Low Prices booklet and Everyday Low Prices section in the front of the Price Guide at great valued nett prices.
