Durability – The Most Sustainable Concept of All
With their timeless design and premium quality, Duravit furnishing elements offer sustainable durability in the bathroom.
• Timelessness as an approach to sustainable design
• Functional quality – high utility value
• Manufacturing precision and high-quality materials to maximize the lifetime of the bathroom products
Durability is an essential factor of sustainability and starts right at the planning phase: bathrooms that are designed with foresight and take account of future life phases, such as starting a family or catering for old age, ensure comfort and well-being for decades. Central factors here not only include manufacturing precision and the highest-quality materials, but also a timeless and modern design that retains its aesthetic beauty for years and decades.
Timelessness – the sustainable design approach
Duravit has a precisely formulated, recognizable, and sustainable design language with elementary, archetypal forms that are both modern and timeless. The unique network of internationally successful designers, architects, and their teams works together with the Duravit development team on developing the design concept further. Unique and successful product designs such as the Starck 1 by Philippe Starck bathroom series or the Vero by Duravit range are design classics for durable design that promise decades of success.
Functional quality - high practical value
Duravit spotlights the perfect interaction between outstanding design, exacting precision, and comfort-enhancing technology. The focus is on the look, feel, acoustics, and usability to inspire customers with the comprehensive quality of Duravit's branded products.
They offer perfect reliability, high quality of use, and everyday suitability, complying with all the legal requirements and guidelines and being subject to strict internal specifications that go significantly beyond the official standards.
Ceramic products that can be enjoyed for a lifetime
Ceramic production is Duravit’s origin story. Ceramic is one of the world’s oldest cultural materials. Its stability, robustness, and use of purely natural materials lend it properties that from the outset go a long way to satisfying the requirements for preserving the environment and saving resources. Swapping out the ceramics during a bathroom renovation is not usually a question of functionality, but rather the desire for a new design.
Demanding product tests
Duravit US also constructs further product details such as hinges to be durable. These are made from robust and recyclable metal elements instead of plastic. Drawers for drawer systems as well as hinges and edging bands on pivot doors need to complete 80,000 cycles in demanding product tests to prove their long-term durability. Stainless-steel toilet-seat hinges need to flawlessly withstand 50,000 drop tests. Based on these exacting practical tests, Duravit US offers a one-year warranty, assuming proper care and use. 15 care-free years are usually possible in practice.
Durable faucets with a manufacturer’s guarantee
In terms of durability and quality requirements, Duravit faucets fit perfectly into the complete bathroom provider’s high-quality product portfolio. And not least the customers also benefit here from a five-year voluntary manufacturer’s warranty and a 15-year availability guarantee for spare parts following the discontinuation of a faucet range.
