Matki Design and Manufacture
Matki have always used their own in house design team. From the conception of the product idea to the final solution every component is scrutinised to the last detail. When considering the final aesthetics, the functionality and component materials are never compromised. Matki offer some very unique designs along with more standard solutions. The showering facility can often be incorporated into the enclosure for more design fluidity. In this modern world where manufacturers try to offer alternative materials to provide more a competitive offering Matki will not compromise. Sleek frames manufactured from rigid aluminium and stainless steel profiles rather than thinner gauge extrusions. Solid safety glass in 6mm, 8mm and 10mm glass work together with the quality metallic finishes to produce robust cubicles in every range Matki offer. Chrome finished door furniture and hinges made from solid metals complete most ranges to give the balance between the amazing aesthetic and the longevity of the performance. Matki design every component part to minute details; considering the installation of the product throughout. Their product innovations have brought about many patented design and fixing solutions
Matki is at the forefront of global interior design trends. Their research and development team have an up to date and in depth awareness of new materials available to the market and constantly test both the limitations and benefits of new products to ensure the final solution meets their strict standards.
To back this up most Matki products have a 10 year guarantee on parts failure. The initial two-year period covering the cost of the labour if there is deemed to be a manufacture fault. Also, as you would expect from a top level manufacturer Matki can supply repair parts for a number of products which are taken out of the range. This really does back up their passion for making sure the products they provide offer the greatest functionality for the longest period.
Matki product ranges
Matki produce a wide range of shower enclosures, brassware and shower tray solutions to suit every eventuality in the bathroom. Often combining the enclosures or wet room solutions with compatible shower trays and brassware they provide the complete solution for every shower design and also offer matching taps to compliment the showers.
Matki EauZone Plus
At the top end of the range is EauZone. Uniquely designed by Matki for the more discerning client this architecturally advanced minimalist product range provides a truly luxurious addition to any shower area. Combining both functionality and elegant form the Eauzone Plus is engineered with 10mm glass and minimalist framing. The range is designed to suit many different size variants not available to most manufacturers; the EauZone range helps to bridge the gap between the standard and bespoke. Even though every cubicle, enclosure or panel in the range is manufactured to order standard delivery is still around 10 days. Of course not every situation can be accounted for even with a range as wide as EauZone, so Matki also offer bespoke solutions within this product group with EauZone plus Ultra bespoke. Delivery times must be considered for bespoke sizing.
With endless choices within the range we would recommend that you contact the sales team at UKBathrooms to ensure the correct configuration is specified for your exact requirements.
As the name suggests the Illusion range is designed with the emphasis with a floating, almost frameless solution. Where the glass meets the tray there is no frame. The glass, when a tray is used, is integrated into the shower tray which provides extra strength and avoids the use of visible silicone. Choices of handles are available which provide a neat flush fitting solution or a more traditional handle. The Illusion range also offers a unique offset hinge system which allows the door to open further providing a wider entrance. The Illusion range is not new from Matki. Matki design development constantly re-invents the wheel and the New Illusion range epitomises the constant product development from Matki, making what was a magnificent product even better. A thinner tray, sleek wall channels, new secure non-slip hinges and new handle options have all helped to keep this range up to date and ahead of the competition
Illusion Quintese - Available in six different sizes and utilising quality materials this product combines the design options and robust quality you would expect. Combining aluminium and mirror polished stainless steel frames with 8mm safety glass with 6mm for the curved glass panels gives the Quintese the luxurious feel, form and look Matki is famed for. The tray has a raised option if required, but also has tiling lips on the wall sides to for a secure tile to tray seal. Matki glass guard easy clean protection is standard in this range.
Illusion hinged doors - Available in numerous sizes from 800mm to 1500mm the hinged doors can be combined with the integrated tray or without if a wet floor or level access tray solution is required. The door can be fitted in recess or with a side panels in 800 or 900mm options. The fast flow shower waste is neatly tucked into the corner of the tray.
A range within a range the Matki design team again exceeded all expectations and launched this new product. Matki-ONE is available as standard in silver but also gives you the option of coloured trays handles and frames. Whilst coloured trays have been coming onto the market for some years Matki are the first to compliment the move towards different colours in brassware and trays with the frames and handles to the shower. This provides greater design options so colours in the shower or bathroom area’s can be contrasted or complimented giving a stylish and elegant look to the room. Matki have used all their years of product innovation to make sure the quality and long lasting high performance is not compromised.
A full range within the range Matki One offers sliding and hinged doors in recess or corner fitting; Quintese options; wet room panels and quadrant or curved enclosures. With eight different handle discs, five different handle options and four frame colours you can turn a standard product into your bespoke choice.
Further special features also include a 2 way pivot door giving the option to open the door in or out. Glass guard is standard as is 8mm glass. Matki recommend their Continental 40 shower tray or the universal 40 shower tray if complimentary colour options are required.
This range is new and is currently being developed on our website so you can easily select all the correct options for yourself. It is currently available from UKBathrooms, but like the Eauzone Plus range we would recommend discussing your requirements with our sales team to ensure the correct specification is achieved.<
Radiance, previously new radiance and original radiance has definitely stood the test of time. One of the older ranges in the Matki portfolio, radiance has, over the last couple of years, gone through a serious re-modelling process to bring the range up to date with interior design trends and current market place expectations. The original design ethic’s for Radiance have been maintained. Features like integrating runners for sliding doors into the tray have been kept. The difference now is that the tray has a much lower profile so visually the radiance sliders are more minimalist and more contemporary looking. The original straight sliders have been discontinued in preference of the new radiance; however, the original curved sliding doors have been kept and moved into the Matki Classic collection. These still sell well and are popular, we think partly due to their popularity and longevity, but also because the tray sizes offer certain design benefits.
New handle options and soft auto-assist sliding doors help to create to more contemporary feel and the chrome finished aluminium frame offers robust a streamlined profiles. A mixture of 6mm and 8mm glass is used in this range depending on the type of door and although glass guard is standard on certain doors in the range with others you will need to add it as an option. With the sliding doors the tray is included but with the pivot doors in this range Matki recommend their Continental 40 trays with fast flow wastes included. The pivot doors are suitable for wet floor or level access tray installations.
All in all the radiance range has been modernised and simplified and still provides one of the most versatile product ranges in the collection.
Walk in showers are a continental idea. When the UK market place, always slow to change, still wanted a ‘gold fish bowl’ to contain all the water wet rooms and more open showering was very common with our European neighbours. Matki was one of the first to introduce the walk in concept with the Boutique collection. The designs cross the bridge the bridge between the fully tanked wet room concept enabling traditional UK construction processes to integrate a wet room concept into the bathroom. Utilising the shower tray and uniquely engineering the glass into the tray offered Designers and Architects far greater options to create the most luxurious bathroom concepts. Unrivalled since its introduction in both design and quality, the Boutique product range is still the leading product in the walk-in market.
Features include the addition of the shower brassware, if required, with hand showers, thermostatic valves and deluge shower heads, all manufactured by Matki in their UK factories, into the shower provide seem less unity of the product and often ease of installation. 8mm and 10mm glass, high lustre chrome finished profiles and glass guard are standard and all of which provides the quality and rigidity you would rightly expect.
This versatile range provides Designers and specifiers with all the options they require to provide the end user with a different, aesthetically inspiring and a luxury showering experience with an added advantage of ease of maintenance.
This range will always push the bathroom budget but when the product is broken down into components we believe it is true value for money.
The wet room collection
Trends develop over time, but the speed of growth of wet rooms in the UK bathroom industry continues to outstrip growth in other areas. As always Matki embraced this trend at an early stage. The range embraces traditional Matki styling and features with simple 8mm and 10mm glass panelling to provide the open showering experience required. The versatile standard sizes offered is complimented by adjustable bracing bars to suit the exact dimensions required. The panels can be used on a wet floor or in conjunction with a level access tray within the Matki shower tray ranges. Matki offer return panels bonded glass to glass rather than plastic seal to create the most indulgent feel. Curved glass panels are also available. Great care must be taken with curved glass panels when create the falls in the shower floor. The glass needs to sit level on the curve so careful pre-planning is essential in the installation. Glass panels are available in both clear glass and black tinted to compliment the interior finishes. Shower seat options are also available which are integrated and supported by the glass panel.
Colonade is simple but majestic in its styling. One of Matki’s classics it is still as popular now as when it was launched. Colonade hides unsightly runners on the sliding options in a unique way that only adds to the elegance of the product. With 8mm glass and chrome finish aluminium frames quality is assured as always. Pivot, straight sliding options and in-fold doors are available in a number of sizes where Matki offer suitable trays in the portfolio but these must be ordered separately. The curved or quadrant colonnade options must use the Matki tray due to their unique shape which allows for more shower space internally. Glass guard must be added as an option if required. Different handles options are also available with certain doors in the range.
Of particular note, and specifically developed for the pivot door is the Matki drip channel on the bottom of the door. This collects water running off the door and directs it back into the tray to avoid a wet floor when the door is open
The Colonade in-fold door is certainly one of the best on the market. In-fold doors, by their nature normally have more frame and can often feel a little rattily. Many manufacturers will also reduce the glass thickness to keep the price down. The Matki in-fold maintains the rigidity and therefore the luxurious feel. If an in-fold is required this product needs to be considered.
To finalise the Matki shower enclosures Matki have moved a few products into their classic collection. These products still sell well for Matki and offer some traditional features which compliment certain room styles and designs. Mirage products and the original radiance quadrants can be found here along with some original walk-in designs with integrated shower options.
Effortlessly styled the Matki bath screen offering is small but will suit most requirements. Inward and outward options are available with single panel screens hinged from the wall, fixed/hinged panel options to extend further down the bath and a folding screen completes the range. !0mm, 8mm and 6mm glass are used depending on the model required and all are supplied with the chrome finished sleek frames. Glass guard must be added to the screens if required.
All Matki shower trays are manufactured in their own factory in Cornwall. The trays reflect their passion for design and quality using the best materials to produce a strong and resilient surface for any shower. We always recommend the use of the Matki trays with their enclosures; with many designs you have no other choice due to the design. The sharp line of the enclosure profiles are mirrored in both the outside and inside aesthetic sharp lines of the trays. Level access versions are available with some unique features to matki. Certain trays have tile upstands as standard or as an option. Different thicknesses, waste options, colour variants and bespoke products are also available. With so many options it can be difficult to isolate the actual tray option best for your circumstance. We will try to simplify things below and point out various benefits to each option.
