Laufen Bathrooms manufactures durable ceramic bathtubs, faucets, and bathroom furniture and accessories.
Innovative bathroom materials and designs
Laufen has developed SaphirKeramik, a durable ceramic with greater flexibility. It can create entirely new shapes with thinner walls than previously seen in sanitary ceramic.
Laufen's new ceramic brings luxury and cutting-edge design to the bathroom. Around 40% lighter than fine fire clay, SaphirKeramik's reduced weight stems from its strength, which means it can be manufactured using less material during the production process.
Enviromentally friendly, ceramic materials
Ceramic material is environmentally friendly and largely consists of the raw materials kaolin, clay, feldspar and quartz sand. It can be produced in large amounts at a low price.
The material can safely be used in bathrooms for many years without contaminating drinking water, and can even be recycled after its long lifespan.
Rimless toilets for bathrooms
Laufen innovative designs include its range of hygienic rimless toilets. The company have continued to extend their portfolio to meet specific design and price choices.
Customisable bathroom appliances
When combined with innovative concepts provided by international designers, Laufen's advanced manufacturing techniques create seamless design finishes in challenging spaces.
From washbasins, countertops, accessories, furniture, shower trays, bathtubs, sinks, through to wall cladding, Laufen's customisable materials enable complete design flexibility.
Chemical-resistant, hygienic bathroom surfaces
Laufen Clean Coat (LCC) is an optional surface finish that is fired on top of the original glaze, making the surface super hard and smooth, and reducing contamination from dirt and germs.
LCC is also highly resistant to aggressive cleaning agents and chemicals, ensuring the highest standard of long-term cleanliness and hygiene. This very special finish can be applied to most Laufen ceramic products.
