Libra Manufactures to International Standards

 

Local Manufacturer Libra has recently started producing a range of shower products for its international sister company GROHE, who is renowned for its winning design and world class quality in sanitaryware. In March 2018, JJ de Waal, General Manager of Libra was approached by GROHE Germany to produce extra-low profile GROHE shower trays with design accents that can ultimately increase a property’s value.

“We pride ourselves on our high quality standards and world class production processes that create carefully hand crafted pieces delivering on creative excellence and functional design,” says de Waal. 

“The GROHE shower tray request was for both rectangular and square models that adapt seamlessly to all designs in seven different dimensions.  We initially designed 3 different size   shower trays at the beginning of July 2018. We recently have loaded seven, 40 foot containers to be delivered to Europe and the surrounding regions, totaling over 5000 shower trays,” adds de Waal. 

The shower trays are manufactured according to the European standard, EN14527 and are particularly low profile, with their depth of only three centimeters. Made of high quality cast acrylic, with a non-porous and smooth surface, these shower trays now have increased slip resistance during showering, while its solid full surface base features stability and longevity.

Designed as PerfectMatch; they not only match any of the three design lines – GROHE Bau, GROHE Euro and GROHE Cube – but can also be optimally combined with GROHE bathroom accessories.

“As a premier South African manufacturer and leading supplier of acrylic baths and shower trays globally we will continue to innovate and make a design statement in your bathroom catering to all global and local needs. We are honoured to play a vital part in local manufacturing and skills transfer in South Africa and are optimistic about LIXIL Africa’s future in the country,” concludes de Waal
