It should be noted that many companies sell fibreglass baths as acrylic baths. This can be very misleading, as the quality of acrylic is far superior. Always remember to state ‘acrylic’ bath and differentiate acrylic from fibreglass baths.
Fibreglass baths are made out of fibreglass with a thin (1mm) coat surface.
Acrylic baths are made using a 5mm acrylic shell, which is heavily reinforced with fibreglass. Therefore, one actually has two baths, one of acrylic and the second of fibreglass, which are then bonded together.
Acrylic is a far superior material for the production of sanitaryware and is accepted throughout the world as the most popular type of bath installed in homes.
