About Carron Quantum Bath
Scottish ironworks Carron was formed on the banks of Carron Water in Falkirk in 1759 and played a significant role in the British industrial revolution. One of the largest ironworks in Europe through the 19th century, it would go on to manufacture iron products from flat-irons through red telephone boxes to army cannons.
It failed during the 1980s and was bought up by Swiss industrial engineers and commercial equipment manufacturers Franke and relaunched as Carron Phoenix. Still based in Falkirk, it now does some of its manufacturing overseas. Now best known as a sink manufacturer, the brand still has considerable cachet.
Carron Bathrooms brings these centuries of experience and expertise to bear on the domestic bathroom. Iron is no longer the automatic choice for bath manufacture, and Carron has been making acrylic baths since 1965. It's gained a reputation as an innovator in the industry, and developed its own proprietary material, Carronite, which is used to reinforce its acrylic and aluminium structures to the strength of iron, and recreate the slip-resistant finish and heat-retention properties traditionally associated with iron baths. Along with its stringent quality standards, this makes light yet exceptionally durable Carron baths a popular choice with professionals.
The Carron Quantum bath range is designed with clean, curved edges lines for a serene, contemporary feel. Baths in the Carron Quantum range are available with or without a Carronite finish, and the brand is popular in hotels and other heavy-use situations. The Quantum range also features bath panels and head rests.
