Sustano recyclable shower tray from Duravit

Sustano represents the launch of Duravit’s new and innovative material DuraSolid Nature for the bathroom. The first recyclable mineral material, DuraSolid Nature brings together a host of outstanding qualities including low weight, adaptability, and ease of cutting on the construction site, its robust, easy to clean, pleasant to touch, with UV-resistance, and anti-slip properties in the matt surface versions.

Ease of installation, makes it ideal for renovation projects where every millimetre matters in the installation of shower trays. With their extremely low installation height of just 30 mm, the self-supporting shower trays enable flush-mounted installation even in renovation projects with a low floor height. Alternatively, they can be installed in floor mounted or semi-recessed applications. Sustano offers previously unheard-of flexibility: 100 mm can be removed from each side of each shower tray, even on the construction site, making it simple to modify when necessary. The low weight makes the trays easy to handle on the construction site, allowing them to be installed by one person.

Robust, easy to clean, and sophisticated, Sustano shower trays have high surface hardness and density, making them comparatively impervious to damage and soiling. A soft cloth with warm water or standard cleaning agent is all that is needed for cleaning. The pore free surface creates a sophisticated finish and a pleasantly warm, appealing feeling on the skin. The versions in matt colours feature a velvety surface, with a somewhat smoother surface feel with the glossy colours. The flat, easy-to-clean outlet cover with a lattice structure in the same colour as the shower tray integrates into the trays unobtrusively, in both visual and tactile terms. The cover is also optionally available in stainless steel. The material’s special surface texture means that Sustano shower trays with a matt surface attain anti-slip class C with no additional coating. This is the highest classification for wet (barefoot) areas, like shower rooms, and thus guarantees maximum safety.

The 1200 x 1200 mm flush-mounted Sustano model is also suitable for accessible bathroom planning and can be utilized with a wheelchair.
Versatile design options means that it can be installed flush with the floor, semi-recessed, or on the floor tiles depending on structural factors and personal preference. The flush-mounted application is particularly impressive, as it lends itself to a seamless spaciousness.

The elegant, calm design language of the shower tray is perfectly attuned to the contemporary bathroom. Featuring 21 sizes, the ideal solution can be found for almost any new-build or renovation project. With five attractive matt colours – White Matt, Matt Crème, Matt Light Gray, Matt Greige, and Matt Dark Gray as well as a glossy White, Sustano offers a range of options to match the colour scheme of any bathroom.

Duravit is continually mindful of the responsibility it bears when it comes to the environment, and is committed to treating resources with respect and supplying products that are especially long-lasting and sustainable.

“We live and breathe sustainability along our value-creation chain, with a clear focus on the four dimensions of water, resources, climate, and social commitment. Our actions – in all strategic areas – are being reviewed and optimized from the perspective of sustainability,” said CEO Stephan Tahy.

Thanks to their low weight, Sustano shower trays are lighter to transport, thereby contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions. Even more important is the material’s durability and recyclability following the usage phase. After the end of their useful life, Sustano shower can be returned either to Duravit or to a local recycling centre to keep within the life-cycle principle. The recycled materials can be reused to manufacture new shower trays or can be applied to industrial use.
