UK: Baths: Bath Manufacturers & Suppliers
Two main materials are used for baths: steel and acrylic. Steel baths are rigid and durable, but are increasingly giving way to the more economic acrylic baths. Acrylic baths have the advantage that tap holes can be drilled on site. Higher quality acrylic baths, made from thicker material, approach closely the rigidity and feel of steel baths. Other bath options include corner baths and large baths which accommodate two bathers. All modern baths may be fitted with jet whirlpool systems. Victorian clawfoot baths are available as restored antique baths and as reproductions. Leading UK suppliers of baths are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.

Bathstore: Baths. Bathstore is the UK's largest specialist bathroom retailer, selling through more than 170 stores and online. The Baths section of Bathstore's comprehensive and well laid out website is organised into the following categories: Acrylic Baths, Thermaform Baths, Showering Baths, Whirlpool Baths, Roll Top Baths, Freestanding Baths, Steel Baths, Bath Panels, Bath Wastes, and Bath Grab Rails. There is a helpful explanation of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of bath. For example, acrylic baths have the advantages that tap holes can be drilled on site, and chips and scratches can be filled and repaired. Thermaform baths are thicker and 60% more thermally efficient than a standard acrylic bath, and have a reassuringly solid feel. Steel baths are sturdy, durable and hard wearing, and retain their shiny appearance even if a scourer is used on the surface.
