BAUDET is the only manufacturer of prefabricated bathrooms on the market with two technical approvals !
After obtaining its first CSTB Technical Approval no. 9/15-1019 in 2012, and renewing this document in 2021, Baudet confirmed its leading position by certifying all of its mixed and tiled bathroom pods under a second CSTB Technical Approval no. 9/21-1070! Baudet is the first industrial operator to obtain a Technical Approval for a prefabricated bathroom as an alternative to traditional solutions!
A Technical Approval (TA) is a reference document for construction businesses. A TA certifies the effective design of prefabricated bathrooms and compliance with the set requirements: deployment during both construction and use. Technical Approvals guarantee general quality.
Thanks to a Technical Approval by Specialist Groups (GS9 for partitions and GS13 for tiling), Baudet’s customers know that they benefit from prefabricated bathrooms with mixed and tiled structures offering greater guarantees than a traditional bathroom. In fact, the tests conducted prove that tiling glued to a wall with a metal structure is as strong as plasterboard on a frame or traditional bricks.
Tests that talk !
During the certification process, many tests were run on a Baudet prefabricated tiled bathroom :
- The transport test: the prefabricated bathroom travelled 1,000 km in a truck with strong braking.
- During impact tests, the walls were impacted 19 times. A 65 kg load (i.e. a force equal to 120 joules, and later 240 joules) was projected against the tiled wall and painted metal structure. No damage was apparent.
- The leaktightness test was run after impact testing: the bathroom was filled with water to a depth of seven centimetres to check that no leaks occurred.
Choose what's best for your project !
By opting for Baudet prefabricated bathrooms, you can rest assured that the quality has been approved by experts in their fields, that leaktightness has been tested and your bathroom is certified.
