Shower Trays


The new Kudos Ultimate slimline shower tray collection stands at just 27mm in height and comes in two standard slate effect finishes, four bespoke-coloured options and 19 standard sizes. They are lightweight, slip and stain-resistant, trimmable to fit on site, and the slate effect finishes contain an antimicrobial additive to inhibit the growth of microbes.

The composite material used to produce these new trays is up to 60% lighter than a traditional stone-filled shower tray. The composite construction, which has a CNC machined waterproof core, features a slip-resistant acrylic surface and is virtually unbreakable. This new tray innovation has also been tested with selected retailers over the past few months to establish the best colour options and features to launch. As a result, Kudos is offering a standard collection from stock in two colour finishes, in white and grey slate effect, and 19 sizes up to 2000 x 900mm, all with an end-positioned waste.

The trays can also be manufactured to order as a bespoke option, which expands the range to 6 coloured options and four different waste positions. These special orders can be made to any size up to 2000 x 1000mm and offer an option of choosing a contrasting-coloured edge to the tray, too.

The Ultimate Shower trays have been designed to suit the range of Ultimate shower panels from Kudos and offer additional flexibility for the bathroom designer.

Whatever your age, standing safely in the bathtub or shower is important; Invisible Grip is the new super anti-slip surface finish from Kaldewei. It works on the glossiest of their steel enamel surfaces, and the feeling when your skin meets the shining, plastic-free Kaldewei surface is pleasant. The grip does not diminish when using soap, shower gel, shampoo or simply when there is contact with water as the invisible micro-structuring of the enamel continues to provide a particularly strong grip underfoot.

Glamour and safety in the bathroom

LGA Bautechnik confirms the anti-slip properties according to quality class C for wet barefoot areas according to DIN EN 16165. This is particularly relevant for the planning of barrier-free bathrooms.

Even when dry, the Invisible Grip finish does not alter the brilliant gleam of the Kaldewei steel enamel surface and is available in Alpine White for shower areas and bathtubs. This means it provides safety and introduces a touch of modern glamour to the bathroom. The micro structure can be cleaned just as easily as a normal enamel surface. An explanatory video can be seen at https://www.kaldewei.de/produkte/invisible-grip/, which demonstrates how the new surface treatment works.

“With Invisible Grip, Kaldewei offers an innovative solution for the modern bathroom that increases the feeling of safety without compromising on the visual appearance, feeling underfoot and hygiene. Carefree showering and bathing with aesthetic aspirations become everyday normality”, says Yvonne Piu, head of global marketing at Kaldewei.

Like all the products in the Luxstainability®World from Kaldewei, Invisible Grip stands for uncompromising safety and trust combined with a highly aesthetic surface finish. Invisible Grip demonstrates Kaldewei’s special innovative competence, for which the premium manufacturer has been awarded the seal of the Bescheinigungsstelle Forschungszulage (BSFZ) (Certification body for research grants).

Even when using soap, shower gel and shampoo or simply when there is contact with water, the invisible microstructuring of the enamel provides a particularly strong grip.

Kaldewei is a brand known for its sustainability; all its products are 100% recyclable, and it is now manufacturing products from BlueMint steel, which reduces carbon emissions by 70%.  With shower trays providing such green credentials, the next logical step was to save energy and CO2 when showering, so during ISH, Kaldewei launched the Kaldewei shower channel with heat recovery system, the “FlowLine Heatrecovery” shower channel.

Up to 80 per cent of the hot water a home creates is used for showering, not heating.  Recently, the focus has been on developing ways to heat more efficiently and use less energy.   A massive quantity of hot water is wasted as it flows unused down the drain; the new Kaldewei “FlowLine Heatrecovery” shower channel uses heat from the shower water to preheat the cold fresh water on its way to the shower fitting.  A heat exchanger integrated into the waste ensures efficient heat recovery, so significantly less hot water needs to be added to guarantee a pleasantly warm shower temperature. In the spirit of sustainability, this saves energy, noticeably reduces costs and reduces the carbon footprint.

Equally, the new grey ceramics can be combined with Ideal Standard’s wide range of brassware collections in chrome or durable PVD colours for fully tailored solutions and truly cohesive space.

For 2023 Kaldewei has given the classic Superplan a makeover; it now has a refreshed design that provides floor-level access from two sides. The Kaldewei Superplan also has an up-to-the-minute look with sharper edges, tight angles, and clean lines.

The installation depth has been optimised to max. 25 millimetres – which is almost half that of its predecessor. Narrow margins create an elegant look and guarantee a lavish standing area for a unique showering experience.

The angles of the outer corners and edges have been reduced so that the Superplan can be easily integrated into an existing tile grid, and tiling up to the edge of the shower surface is much simpler.

Kaldewei’s Superplan is a classic among floor-level showers and has sold over a million in the last 30 years. Trusted by technicians and users alike, whether it’s an exclusive private bathroom in a hotel or a barrier-free bathroom, this seamless shower made of recyclable steel enamel integrates perfectly, guaranteeing a
comfortable, safe floor space.

Sustainable, modern, and flexible

The Kaldewei Superplan is manufactured from recyclable steel enamel, and its non-porous glass surface makes it easy to clean. Combining long-lasting design with natural materials, it adds another excellent product to the world of Kaldewei’s Luxstainability® portfolio.

The new Superplan is 100 per cent compatible with all the smart Kaldewei accessories – from assembly and waste systems to the familiar easy-care and anti-slip finishes.

This new Superplan shower tray will be available in all 41 sizes by autumn 2023.

Unveiled by Acquabella as part of a brand-new product lineup, the minimalist Halo Slate is a framed shower tray with an elegant slate stone texture.


The Acquabella shower tray collection is enriched with the new Halo Slate. Like an ‘aura’ — from which it takes its name — a micro-textured cornice runs across the frame, creating a slight contrast with the Slate texture of the structure. Its use allows high-water evacuation via a slim grid.

Halo Slate is customisable in size thanks to its Akron® composition. On the one hand, it can be easily cut to adapt to specific space requirements. Moreover, like the entire Acquabella shower tray collection, Akron® products are customisable in colour thanks to the wide range of finishes available in the Standard, Naturally Made or RAL/NCS colours.

Akron® is Acquabella’s innovative patented material composed of polyurethane and mineral fillers, which is characterised by excellent hygienic and antibacterial properties. Its special structure allows for extremely defined textures for an extremely realistic tactile sensation.

Akron® is also easy to clean and is resistant to scratches or bumps that may occur during daily use of the shower tray.


The BetteAir flush-to-floor shower tile set a milestone in shower tray design, because of how well and easily it can be integrated into the floor. Now Bette has launched five extra-large sizes in its innovative glazed titanium-steel shower floor.

The five new sizes: 1100×1000, 1500×900, 1500×1000, 1600×900 and 1600x1000mm, give bathroom designers the opportunity to create large-format shower areas with a generous sense of space. The additions bring the total number of size options to 14 and all are available in a choice of 31 matt and gloss colours, including matt white, ebony, greige and stone and gloss white, beige, and black.

Made of strong glazed titanium-steel, the BetteAir shower tile is extremely stable, even in the largest sizes and is hygienic, easy to clean and durable.

BetteAir can also be ordered with one of Bette’s virtually invisible slip-resistant surfaces, including the innovative BetteAnti-Slip Sense for glossy white surfaces, which provides the highest level of slip protection*.

All BetteAir shower tiles are easy to install, as they can simply be glued to the screed like a conventional tile.
