DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Aquanit

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Porcelain Shower Tile

INSPIRATION:
The starting point is the idea to develop a more hygiencic and more durable product than the acrylic bathtubs and bathroom marbles or other materials. Aquanit is designed in a way that will be in harmony with the porcelain tiles.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Aquanit is a porcelain shower tile that is designed in the sizes of 90 x 90 cm and 90 x 135 cm. Thanks to this product, an aesthetic and seamless appearance is obtained with an installation at the same level as the floor. Its difference from the bathroom tubs is the fact that it is hygienic and stronger as it is a technical porcelain

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Aquanit can be easily applied by a ceramic tile installer just like tiling while flooring the bathrooms. It is sold as a full set including a drain system and a cover. It has various drain options in line with the drain systems of the buildings. A smooth transition is ensured without any elevation difference with the wall and the floor tiles.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
At the end of year 2015, the idea of a porcelain shower tile was suggested in Istanbul. Then in 2016, R&D studies were completed in the Bilecik Seranit plant. In February 2016, it was introduced to all customers and user groups.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Building Materials, Construction Components, Structures & Systems Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A ready-to-press body is prepared using natural porcelain raw materials. It is pressed using a metal mold with a special channel. Then natural stone patterns are printed on it with digital pressing technology. A matte and anti-slip surface is created by oven-drying it at almost 1200 degrees. Then a drain system and a cover that are specially designed for Aquanit are added.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width: 900 mm Length: 1350 mm Depth: 14 mm Weight: 35.10 kg

TAGS:
Porcelain - shower tile - shower tray - bathroom surface - hygienic - flat - sanitary ware

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
While developing the idea of a porcelain shower tile, all the shower trays both in the world and in Turkey were examined. And the issues of the available products were discussed. Then the possible sizes of Aquanit were determined. The first molds were produced in the size of 90 x 135 cm. At the end of the examinations made on the prototype, the product had been revised by adding channels and slopes in order to facilitate the flow of water. And different cover options are developed to address different preferences. Moreover, 3 different drain systems have been developed to adapt to different building structures. Special-design natural patterns are created to ensure harmony with all bathrooms. Further to this, Aquanit in the size of 90 x 90 cm has been developed to be used in smaller bathrooms. These efforts were all carried out by the cooperation and the coordination of ceramic production experts, architects, and engineers.

CHALLENGE:
Aquanit, which is the first porcelain shower tile of the world, does not absorb water, is hygienic and stain-proof, creates the feeling of a seamless space, is resistant to chemicals, does not fade, provides the one-piece advantage compared to normal ceramic flooring, offers an aesthetic and stylish appearance, and provides product options that may adapt to all bathrooms.
