We ensure hygiene in the shower area

Dirt and bacteria are unable to adhere to the glass-hard, non-porous surface of BetteGlaze®. This makes it highly superior to softer materials or tiled areas.

Our BetteGlaze® Plus 

Our BetteGlaze® Plus is an extra touch of sophistication for the surface, applied after the final firing. Bathtubs, basins and shower trays are coated with a transparent polymer film. It is water-repellent, allowing droplets to roll off even more easily and reducing deposits, which makes cleaning easier. Simply wipe with a damp cloth. No need for strong cleaning agents, saving time and helping our environment.

The comparison shows: Bette shower surfaces can do more

Joints in a tiled shower area are

  • real dirt traps
  • provide a good base for germs and bacteria
  • are difficult to clean
  • cause water damage because of the porous joints
  • are difficult and expensive to repair and maintain
  • cannot be reused in conversions or renovations

Bette shower areas

  • cover the sensitive shower area without joints
  • have a strong, glass-like surface that dirt is unable to adhere to
  • are easy to clean
  • reliably protect the building shell against penetrating water
  • can be inspected at any time, and are a lasting investment in quality and durability

Elegant and sealed - the BetteUpstand

The silicone-free wall connection BetteUpstand is the intelligent alternative to vulnerable maintenance joints. Baths, shower trays and shower areas are given a 35 mm upturn in glazed titanium steel that is simply tiled over during installation and connected to the wall. The result is the optically and hygienically perfect connection of wall and bath. BetteUpstand protects against mould and water damage, and saves the regular costs incurred for the renewal of silicone joints.

Disadvantages of silicone joints

  • real dirt traps
  • a good breeding ground for germs and bacteria
  • difficult to clean
  • a possible target for mould
  • porous joints cause water damage
  • repairs are troublesome and expensive

Advantages of BetteUpstand

  • does not let bacteria take hold
  • stays permanently clean and hygenic
  • is sturdy and easy to clean
  • provides safe protection against water penetration
  • saves troublesome maintenance work

More questions about cleaning and care?

What is the easiest and best way for me to clean Bette glazed titanium steel to remove everyday dirt?

The BetteGlaze® that covers our baths, shower trays and washbasins in titanium steel in glossy or matt shades is extremely hygienic and can handle a lot. Dirt and bacteria are hardly able to adhere to the glass-hard, non-porous surface, and are usually easy to remove using a soft, non-scratch or non-abrasive cloth and a little clean, warm water. For daily cleaning, we recommend the BetteCareCloth (order no. Z0016912) and the enamel spray cleaner (order no. B57-0245).

Aggressive cleaning agents such as drain cleaner or abrasive products may damage the BetteGlaze® surface. Their use is therefore not recommended. If you use the measures described above regularly, you will be able to maintain a clean freshness and the optimum hygiene even without resorting to aggressive cleaning products.

What is the easiest and best way for me to remove stubborn dirt and marks from Bette glazed titanium steel?

It is best to soften stubborn dirt with a mild bathroom or all-purpose cleaner for 15 to 30 minutes, and then repeat the cleaning process. Alternatively, use the Bette enamel cleaner (order no. Z0015908) or the enamel care stick (order no. Z0007521). In every instance, please follow the instructions for use on enamelled surfaces that are printed on the various products.

How do I remove limescale deposits from glazed titanium steel?

Limescale deposits are easy to prevent by ensuring that all fittings are closed and well sealed, and that any residual water is removed after use. Remove any adhering residues with a soft, non-scratch cloth and a warm solution of vinegar and water (ratio 1:1; not vinegar essence) that you simply rinse away with clean water when you have finished. 

Bette offers a special enamel cleaner for the care and regular cleaning of the glazed surface of titanium steel (order no. Z0015908). The solvent-free cleaning agent removes unattractive, stubborn traces of limescale and stains on bathroom products. Simply pour the cleaner onto the moistened surface, and wipe with a soft cloth. Rinse with warm water – and done. 

Abrasive, sand-based, highly acidic and aggressive cleaners and limescale removers are not suitable for removing limescale deposits.

How do I remove the marks caused by metallic abrasion or rust marks from glazed titanium steel?

If, for instance, gardening or sports equipment are cleaned in the bath, they can often leave marks as the result of metallic rubbing. However, rust marks from rusty equipment, leftover silicone or paint are also other sources of marks in a bath or washbasin. The best way to remove these marks is with our enamel care stick (order no. Z0007521), which is used like an eraser. First mist the surface with water, then erase – and done. 

Can I remove nail polish or hair dye from glazed titanium steel?

Cosmetics such as nail polish and hair dye will not harm Bette bathroom products in glazed titanium steel because BetteGlaze is resistant to chemicals. If you remove all traces of any marks or spots after use, you will find that polishes and hair dyes can easily be wiped away without leaving stains.

Can any cleaning product be used to clean glazed titanium steel?

Bette bathroom elements made of glazed titanium steel are extremely robust and easy to clean, but highly acidic, aggressive and abrasive cleaning agents, sponges and brushes should not be used because they may contain particles that are harder than glass, and will therefore scratch the surface.

Can I use drain cleaner on my bath, shower tray or washbasin made of glazed titanium steel?

Aggressive cleaning agents such as drain cleaner or abrasive products may damage the BetteGlaze surface. Their use is therefore not recommended. Used regularly, the measures given under "What is the easiest and best way for me to clean Bette glazed titanium steel to remove everyday dirt?" will ensure that you can enjoy a clean freshness and the optimum hygiene even without resorting to aggressive cleaning products.

I can see small brown spots or stains similar to rust marks on the surface of my Bette bath, shower tray or washbasin. Even if they are wiped away, they reappear a short time later. What are these spots, and how can I get rid of them permanently?

These small brown spots or stains are usually caused by dirt from the mains supply. They are usually due to particles containing iron oxide that rust when combined with oxygen and water, and then are able to settle on the surface thanks to limescale – resulting in the phenomenon you describe. The only remedy is to thoroughly remove all limescale deposits from the surface so that it is perfectly smooth. And the deposits can simply be rinsed away. Please contact a specialist bathroom company to prevent these deposits in the mains supply.  

The surface of my new bath, shower tray or washbasin in glazed titanium steel looks dull, and there is a stubborn coating or dirt on it. What is this, and how do I get rid of it?

During construction, it is possible that the bath may be contaminated by cement, paint or the remains of water that has been left for a while, and layers of dust. The glazed surface may then feel blunt or look dull. The best way to remove this dirt or these marks is to follow the standard cleaning process (see "What is the easiest and best way for me to clean Bette glazed titanium steel to remove everyday dirt?"). If this is not sufficient, please contact a specialist dealer for special cleaning and care products.
