Building a Better Bath
New Drop-In Tubs by Victoria + Albert Embody Style and Comfort
(TORONTO – January 16, 2017). As a renowned designer and manufacturer of luxurious freestanding tubs, Victoria + Albert is pleased to announce its foray into the world of built-in baths.
“Our aim was simple – to create the world’s best built-in bathtub,” said Jonathan Carter, Marketing Director for Victoria + Albert. “We wanted to keep the elegance and superior quality that is part of our brand and add to that the ease and practicality of a built-in tub. We couldn’t be more pleased with the end results.”
The two new designs, the Gordano 6032 and Rossendale 6636, are beautiful in any setting with sophisticated lines and exceptional design flexibility. Both may be installed as a drop-in or under-mount and have four adjustable feet for perfect leveling and easy installation. The tubs may be set into a custom surround built to complement any bathroom decor, making them a smart choice for hospitality settings as well as residential use. These remarkable tubs have been designed with comfort in mind: each has a 32° angle of recline and integrated arm rests for a relaxing soak. As with all Victoria + Albert baths, they are crafted from their signature ENGLISHCAST® material, hand-finished to a glossy white shine. The material is naturally strong, which means that the tubs won’t creak or flex.
The Gordano 6032 measures 60” x 32” with a water capacity of 68 3/4 gallons, while the Rossendale 6636 is slightly larger at 66” x 36” and a capacity of 88 1/4 gallons. Both feature an internal overflow for peace-of-mind protection, and both come with a 25-year consumer guarantee and an eight-year commercial warranty.
