Saint Gobain Introduces Shower Cubicles
Saint-Gobain launched its premium Shower Cubicle range at exclusive functions in Bangalore and Cochin yesterday. The range will be manufactured at its purpose built highly automated & digitalized plant. The shower cubicle range is part of Saint-Gobain’s My Home suite of innovative solutions for homes. MyHome solutions cover multiple applications in homes and include services from design to installation.
Today, home is increasingly becoming an integral part of our life. Bathrooms are assuming greater importance within homes. It is estimated that an average adult spends 30-60 minutes every day in the bathroom which translates to 3-4 years of her lifetime. Indians are also fond of showering and an average Indian adult takes at least one shower per day, much ahead of the other parts of the world. Thus, the bathing space is gaining particular significance in home design & décor.
Shower cubicles are an ideal solution for bathrooms as it separates wet and dry areas thereby providing safety and hygiene in addition to making the bathroom look trendy and modern. Despite these benefits, shower cubicle adoption remains low in India. Research indicates that the shower cubicle category in India has a very low (less than 5%) adoption in homes. This is primarily due to lack of awareness, absence of good quality shower cubicle system, and a deficient ecosystem to fulfil the shower cubicle requirements of home owners.
This is set to change. Saint-Gobain has launched a range of exquisite Shower Cubicles for the Indian market. The shower cubicles are custom made with over 500 designs to choose catering to a wide spectrum of bathrooms. Saint-Gobain has set up a dedicated manufacturing plant for making these shower cubicles. The shower cubicles come with a patented easy-to-clean coating that keeps the glass spotless and scale-free. The hardware fittings are made specifically to avoid being corroded keeping in mind the high levels of humidity in the Indian bathrooms. The entire process of measurement, design, manufacturing, and installation digitalised eliminating human errors and reducing timelines. Saint-Gobain shower cubicles would be available at all the leading bath and sanitary stores in Kerala, Bangalore, and the rest of the country.
Saint-Gobain also launched the MyHome website, a platform that has brought together all the Saint-Gobain solutions under one roof. The website not only enables customers to find out more and enquire about these products but also allows them to build their own customised shower cubicles.
Hemant Khurana, Executive Director, Home & Hospitality Business, Saint-Gobain India, said “Saint-Gobain’s purpose is to make the world a better home. The MyHome offering in India is our initiative to deliver products, solutions & services that enhance the wellbeing in Indian homes while partnering the customer from design to execution.
