main selection criteria

There are many nuances that must be considered in order to select high-quality acrylic bathtub:

  • type material.Acrylic used for production, cells may be cast or extruded.They are similar in chemical composition, but have varying degrees of strength.Cast acrylic is preferable as the material of the tub will last you
    much longer.
  • acrylic layer . It should be as thicker, at least 0.5-0.6 cm. This option is necessary to pay special attention, because most commercially available baths acrylic coating does not exceed 0.4 cm, so that they quickly wear out.
  • Exterior acrylic coating. quality acrylic bathtub should be boiling white (of course, if you do not choose any other color).On its surface should be rough, it is always perfectly flat and smooth.
  • number of materials. In the production of acrylic bathtubs acrylic coating is applied to the polyurethane base, in order to provide greater rigidity.Therefore, the final product is obtained two-layer.Bath, consisting of only one acrylic - something very fragile and unstable.
  • Rigidity. This is undoubtedly one of the main criteria.After all, how hard bath depends on how much weight it can bear and what method of installation is required for it (especially fragile items require additional reinforcement).Test acrylic bathtub stiffness easy - just press down harder on the bottom of her hand: if it lends itself, the product is not quality.
  • Light transmission material.This acrylic - it is not a transparent material.If acrylic bathtub transmits light with a high probability it can be argued that before you fake.
  • outer layer. As we have seen, it is made of polyurethane.The outer surface of acrylic baths must be dark and smooth to the touch.If it is rough and, besides, gives off an unpleasant chemical smell, then most likely, the manufacturer decided to save money and used as a base glass mixed with synthetic resins.Buy a bath is not necessary.
  • frame design. Ideally it should be a fixing frame made specifically for this model, bath, feet that are height adjustable and supports at the corners.If there is only one frame, which is mounted directly under the skirting, then this design is very unstable.
  • Additional functions. If you do not need, then so as not to overpay, buy an ordinary bath, as for a lot of "bells and whistles" can hide the poor quality of the product.If you, for example, requires a hot tub, then pay attention to manufacturer specializing on this type of product.
  • form.The it easier, more durable and more resistant to bath.Spa large or complex shapes have to be very high quality.Consequently, they will cost significantly more.
  • drain and overflow system. It can be traditional, semi-automatic or automatic.Each of them has its advantages and disadvantages, so it is a matter entirely to your individual preferences.
