Editor’s pick: what Bette launched at ISH 2023

Bette, the specialist for bathroom products made from titanium steel,  dropped two major gamechangers for hotel designers at ISH: a simplified shower tray installation solution and new, sleek washbasins…

The BetteBalance basin collection of four basins

Last week, ISH 2023 in Frankfurt showcased a plethora of innovative products to enter the contract bathroom market. Among them were new designs from Bette.

The bathroom brand known for its unique manufacturing process launched two new collections, BetteBalance and Bettelevel – here’s everything you need to know about them.

BetteBalance – washbasins with defined edges and almost weightless lightness in design

As a material for washbasins, glazed titanium steel offers significant advantages in terms of resilience and ease of cleaning. It also allows the creation of extremely slender, but durable products, with defined edges and almost weightless lightness in design. With BetteBalance, Bette is introducing four new bowl washbasins made of this material, which is as robust as it is elegant. With them, different areas of use and styles can be realised in one design language.

Developed for Bette by Tesseraux & Partner, there are four built-in and surface-mounted variants of BetteBalance. All have an ergonomically optimised, circular inner body with a diameter of 395mm, with the interior optimised both in terms of visual appeal and to minimise the splashing of water.

The undermounted and built-in washbasins are the classics for installation in bathroom furniture, with the slender rim created in only the thickness of the material itself. A cylindrical countertop washbasin and a washbasin bowl complete the range. This system of creating four variants from one bowl shape reduces manufacturing costs – and means the washbasins can be priced competitively compared to other materials.

The BetteBalance bowl basins are available in four styles and in numerous colours, including matt colours and sparkling effect colours.

The central waste outlet with enamelled cover, echoes the large waste outlet of the successful BetteAir shower tray.  To create a flawless, easy-care surface, the basins do not have an overflow hole, with the waste remaining open, although covered, at all times.

BetteLevel – shower tray installation done smart

Developed in conjunction with installers, BetteLevel is a new approach to shower tray installation, which makes it significantly easier and faster, and works with shower trays of all sizes. The new system revolutionises the process of mounting, levelling, and adjusting the shower tray to the desired height. Until now, this has usually been done using a frame, however, as frames have to be assembled and adjusted in height using screws, it can be a time-consuming process.

The new self-locking foot system makes the process much simpler and faster, with no extra tools required. The unique, patented self-locking, telescopic feet are simply glued to the shower tray. The shower tray is then raised to the desired height and the feet lock in place automatically. If any adjustment is required, the lock can be released by lifting the shower tray, and the process repeated to lock the feet at the correct height. Once level and at the correct height, the waste can be installed, and the tiling can be done.
