The Architectura system concept from Villeroy & Boch caters particularly for the special requirements of installers, planners and international architects. A modular principle is used to structure the products. Three washbasin shapes are available and each washbasin can be fitted in three ways: surface-mounted, semi-recessed and undercounter. There are matching WCs and urinals. Architectura offers innovative solutions combined with particularly easy installation and maintenance. In order to provide more bathroom design options with a single collection, Villeroy & Boch is now extending the Architectura portfolio with a new product family: Architectura MetalRim – ultra-slim, edgeless shower floors made of acrylic reinforced with galvanised steel at the parameter. Extreme stability is thus guaranteed.
High-quality material and powerful technology
The new Architectura MetalRim shower floors are formed from 4 mm solid-coloured sanitary acrylic. This high-quality material is tested in accordance with the EN 249 standard: it is extremely robust and completely colourfast. The surface is UV-resistant and can be easily repaired even after installation. The shower floors are thus remarkably durable. Villeroy & Boch provides a ten-year guarantee on these premium material properties. Architectura MetalRim shower floors are also particularly easy-care. They can be kept perfectly clean using water, a soft cloth, and – as necessary – a normal cleaning agent. The valve cover can be easily removed for cleaning purposes. The special technology of Architectura MetalRim with its steel-reinforced parameter provides extreme stability enabling the shower floor to withstand a 1000 kg load. Additional safety is provided by the optional anti-slip coating with Class C Vilbogrip.
Successful design and model diversity
The design is characterised by its minimalist ultra-slim, edgeless look and integrated valve cover that lies flush with the surface of the shower floor. The valve cover in White is supplied with the unit; it is also optionally available in matt Chrome and chrome plated. The valve is constructed to be very efficient with a capacity of 51 litres of water per minute.
Easy and safe installation
The new shower floors are easy to carry and can be installed on the screed to lie flush with the tiles or directly onto the tiles themselves. The 15 mm version creates an accessible shower with both installation options; when installed on the screed the 48 mm version does likewise. With tiled floors, the 15 mm option allows the shower floor to be fitted flush with the edge of the tiles. Installation on a base is also possible, which is an ideal solution for renovations. With Architectura MetalRim Villeroy & Boch has created a shower floor family that is suitable for all projects and that can be easily and safely installed. The three fitting options require only simple standard installation procedures. Villeroy & Boch also provides high-quality shower partitions, thus enabling perfect complete shower designs.
