BetteAir shower tile

BetteAir shower tile offers anti-slip surface that blends with the floor

Promotion: German bathroom brand Bette has enhanced its shower tile – an upgrade to the traditional shower tray – with the introduction of an advanced anti-slip surface.

BetteAir shower tiles are designed to sit level with the surrounding floor surface, allowing the shower area to blend seamlessly into a room.

Made from glazed titanium steel, with a thickness of just ten millimetres, the tile can be easily integrated into a grid of large-format floor tiles.

The product is now available with BetteAnti-Slip Sense, an innovative slip-resistant coating.

The friction effect is only activated on contact with water; when dry the coating appears invisible and has no impact on the look and feel of the surface.

Launched in 2021, BetteAir was designed by Potsdam-based Tesseraux & Partner.

The shower tile is available in eight sizes, from widths of 900 up to 1,400 millimetres. It comes in a choice of 31 colours, covering both matt and gloss effects, with a choice of BetteAnti-Slip Pro or the new BetteAnti-Slip Sense finishes.

The product requires an installation height of just 97 millimetres, thanks to an innovative drainage system that combines a three-millimetre opening with a 200-millimetre waste water.

The glazed waste cover is completely flat, so no difference can be felt on the surface. It offers a drainage capacity of 0.6 litres per second, which is sufficient even for high-spec rain showers.

The waste is designed to prevent a build-up of hair, but the cover can be removed to allow cleaning when necessary.

When installed by a professional, BetteAir also offers good levels of sound insulation, making it suitable for apartment buildings and other buildings where the acoustics are important.
