Known as the Eldon, this back-to-wall bath has the curvaceous lines of a freestanding tub, yet it sits flush against the wall for greater space saving and ease of installation. The tub is wrapped with a crisp edge that forms a natural shelf against the wall to hide pipework and provide a platform where plumbing could be deck-mounted if desired. In another example of thoughtful engineering, the tub has a molded upstand to allow for retrofit installation without disturbing existing flooring. Eldon is available in seven exterior color finishes and may be installed with or without an overflow. As
with all Victoria + Albert baths, it is crafted from their signature ENGLISHCAST® material and hand-finished to a glossy shine. The tub is compatible with the company’s Kit 40 “Intelli-waste” bath drain and their new Kit 60 combined bath filler and overflow.

Sustainability

The pipework is hidden beneath a full width plumbing deck, while a moulded tile upstand allows tiles to be easily installed around the rim to create a watertight seal. There is also a space underneath the bath without resorting to using a plinth, allowing the Eldon to be retrofitted without disturbing existing flooring. The Eldon can be installed with or without an overflow and works with Victoria + Albert’s Kit 40 Intelli-waste or new Kit 60 “exofill” bath drain.

Notes

Its sleek lines bring a welcome sense of sophistication to daily living, while its versatile design makes it a smart solution for homes and hotels alike. This wall mounted bath still has the aesthetic of a freestanding bath, but can easily fit into the more compact spaces common in modern cities. The overall form was intentionally kept very simple, wrapping a crisp edge around the bath and back to the wall, creating a natural shelf, where hardware could be deck-mounted.

Eldon is an option for those who want all the style of the freestanding look without giving up the convenience and
flexibility of a wall-mounted tub. The contemporary back-to-wall design is endowed with the curvaceous lines of a freestanding bath. The Eldon is also incredibly easy to clean, making it a perfect design for contract markets and
everyday households, where practicality and ease of cleaning is key.
