With over 100 years’ experience across four generations, Kaldewei is a pioneer of sustainable manufacturing. The company's portfolio of over 600 shower surfaces, washbasins and baths, and over 150 design awards, makes it a partner of choice for architects and designers in all aspects of sustainable bathroom design.

Kaldewei guarantees optimised lifecycle costs through resource-efficient manufacturing, superior material properties and longevity for its bathroom solutions. The company also provides architects and planners with BIM data for BIM software applications.

Steel enamel is a highly sustainable material that contributes to conserving resources. It is ideal for sustainably designed buildings and Kaldewei has been awarded an Environmental Product Declaration that complies with ISO 14025 and EN 15804. It is also a member of the US Green Building Council LEED.

Kaldewei’s superior steel enamel fuses steel and glass for exceptional toughness. Despite frequent use, the smooth surface shows no scratches and has no place for dirt or bacteria to settle. This makes the use of aggressive, ecologically harmful cleaning products unnecessary. Kaldewei underlines the quality and longevity of its material with a 30-year warranty, ensuring its bathroom solutions continue to look as beautiful as they did on installation. 

Kaldewei has an ethical and ecological commitment to the environment and offers a sustainable material choice that supports the UK government’s carbon neutral 2050 target. All Kaldewei bathroom solutions are 100 per cent recyclable and Kaldewei avoids the use of colour additives in production. In 2017, Kaldewei won a Green Good Design Award - one of the world’s most prestigious sustainability awards.
