Burlington introduces natural stone inline shower trays and aqua panels

Cumbria-based stone engineers at Burlington are continuing to diversify and expand their standard/off-the-shelf product range with the introduction of natural stone inline shower trays and aqua panels.

Serving as a solution for today’s modern contemporary bathrooms, shower areas and wet and steam rooms, this latest product offering takes in two standard-sized inline shower trays (900 mm x 900 mm x 30 mm and 1,200 mm x 900 mm x 30 mm) and one universal aqua panel (1,000 mm x 450 mm), in thicknesses of 20 and 30 mm.

With the potential to create a visually stunning minimalist yet functional space and being complementary to a host of finishing materials, fittings and accessories, both products are available as a stock item in Burlington’s blue/grey Kirkby and mid-green Broughton Moor stone.

Both off-the-shelf inline shower trays, for example, are not only pre-machined with a fall, pre-cut groove to accept a glass shower screen on one side as standard and integral trap opening, they are also designed for installation at floor level, thereby providing a step-less walk in what epitomizes today’s minimalist settings, according to the manufacturer. They are additionally available with a honed finish; however they can also be supplied to order with a sanded, waterjet or gritblasted finish and in any of Burlington’s five natural stones or two limestones. In addition to each stone being unique, its color is not only enhanced by contrasting yet complementary veins and markings, its look and feel are transformed when interacting with water, reports Burlington.

The aqua panels - primarily suitable for vertical fixing - are available in a mix of finishes and colors, depending on thickness. All 20-mm-thick panels are available from stock with a honed finish in Kirkby and Broughton Moor, whereas 30-mm aqua panels come with a line-textured finish in both Lord and Caulfeild limestone. As with the shower trays, the line texturing is itself interestingly transformed when water is seen cascading down the horizontal lines, the overall effect of which creates a new and different dimension to the showering experience, according to the manufacturer.

As with all of Burlington’s product groups, both the inline showers trays and aqua panels can be fabricated in any of Burlington’s natural stone colorways and with a variety of textured finishes.
