What is Carronite?
Carronite is Carron’s unique manufacturing process. They are so confident in the strength and quality of Carronite that they offer a 30 year manufacturer warranty.
Carron have carried out numerous tests to demonstrate that Carronite baths:
Retain Heat: Carronite baths will retain heat for approx. 20 minutes longer than a standard acrylic bath. This is based on a starting temperature of 55 degrees Celsius and reducing to 45 degrees Celsius.
Amazingly Strong: They are much stronger than standard acrylic baths. Based on measuring the extent to which a cut section of a bath will bend when a 1kg weight is attached to it. A standard bath will bend to 56mm and the Carronite bath will bend to only 45mm. This makes them around 30% stronger than standard acrylic baths.
Unique Design: Carron baths have a unique cradle support system, this has been designed to cope with the additional weight of the Carronite material. Once installed, the bath’s stability and rigidity prevent movement, this tackles the problem of baths sealing when movement occurs.
