Xetis – a system of visionary aesthetics

Ahlen, April 2014. – Xetis, the new enamelled shower surface with integrated wall outlet from Kaldewei, celebrates a premiere in modern bathroom architecture. Harmoniously blending with the bathroom floor, Xetis plays to a clear, purist style with an outlet that sits discreetly in the wall so as not to disrupt the seamless shower surface in superior Kaldewei steel enamel. Kaldewei’s latest product provides bathroom designers with new aesthetic scope for design in floor-level shower areas – and underlines once more Kaldewei’s role as a pioneer and style icon in bathroom culture.

Xetis, the new enamelled shower surface with integrated wall outlet and installation system, is yet another new product developed by Kaldewei’s Design Centre for a stylish design of floor level showers in harmony with modern bathroom architecture. No outlet disrupts the purist design of the seamless shower surface and no tile grout, the technology is hidden in the wall. Xetis is available in 13 different sizes ranging from 90 x 90cm and 120 x 120cm through to 100 x 180cm. In addition to sleek Alpine White, the enamelled shower surface also comes in the exclusive colours of the Coordinated Colours Collection to combine harmoniously with wood or stone surfaces. With Secure Plus as a world first, Kaldewei offers the first virtually invisible, yet reliable full-surface anti-slip finish for this colour collection. Secure Plus guarantees optimum safety in the shower without compromising on the aesthetic design of the enamelled shower surface.

Clear stylistic features and visionary aesthetic design
“The Xetis defines itself by clear stylistic features and visionary aesthetic design,” explains Marcus Möllers, Public Relations Manager at Kaldewei. He continues: “I see Xetis as a state-of-the-art product that revolutionises the shower experience, as its delightfully low-key design allows modern bathroom architecture room for individuality.” The new Kaldewei Xetis soon received three prestigious design awards for excellent and innovative design: the interior innovation award – Best of Best 2013, an award from the Deutsche Designer Club e.V. in the “Gute Gestaltung 13” design competition, and the Design Plus Award.

System solution guarantees quick and safe installation
Xetis is a system solution in which all components are perfectly matched for quick and safe installation. It consists of three system components as well as an installation set. The three system components comprise the enamelled shower surface Xetis, the foot frame FR 5350, and the centre support system MAS 5305. These are complemented by an installation set with Kaldewei’s waste fitting KA 200, the bath sealing system XDS, an installation cover and a matching design panel, which can either be tiled or comes as a high-gloss, chrome-plated version. Specifically developed for the new Xetis, the Kaldewei waste fitting KA 200 scores with an impressive drainage performance of one litre per second and is easy to clean. Particularly important for fitters and planners is the fact that the Kaldewei Xetis system can be combined with all popular pre-wall installation systems. This guarantees quick and safe installation.

Perfect fit with quality guarantee
With a very small installed height of only 49mm, Kaldewei’s new Xetis shower surface makes planning and installation easy work for bathroom experts. As a further advantage, Xetis has sharp radii to ensure dimensionally accurate integration of the shower surface with the surroundings. The seamless surface of Xetis is made of durable Kaldewei steel enamel to protect with familiar reliability against damage due to moisture penetration – a major advantage over other materials, especially tiled shower areas. Combining the superior material properties of Kaldewei steel enamel with the system components and installation set, Xetis is the ultimate example of a perfectly safe and secure product solution with a 30-year guarantee on material quality. Perfect for trade professional – and the customer!
