A Tradition for Setting the Standard

 

1970

In 1971 our founding directors played a leading role in the introduction of Shower Enclosures to the United Kingdom, identifying a growing demand as British holidaymakers began to experience Shower Enclosures in luxury hotel bathrooms abroad.

We began importing Shower Doors, Screens and Enclosures from our founding partners in the US, sourcing well-designed units for British Bathrooms.

Working with a small boat-building firm in Penryn, Cornwall we were also able to produce Shower Trays designed to complement our first collections.

1980

Matki continued it’s move up-market with the introduction of the groundbreaking Classica and Finesse Shower Enclosures, using 10mm and 8mm toughened safety Glass.

We purchased our Shower Tray supplier and invested in an enlarged, purpose-built facility based in Redruth for the manufacture of Shower Trays as demand continued to rise.

We began developing new ways to produce Shower Trays, moving away from traditional Glass Reinforced Plastic to cultured Marble, Stone Resin and later Acrylic, producing better surfaces with an increased longevity and durability.

1990

Home interior design began to flourish and the bathroom space was starting to evolve. Our Shower Enclosure collections continued to grow in popularity. With growth, we moved to a purpose built factory and offices in Yate near Bristol.

Matki introduced an in-house design team and began designing products specifically for the luxury market. We launched the successful Colonade and Original Radiance collections shortly after, comprising beautifully spacious proportions, elegant looks and specially designed features to elevate the complete showering experience.

Driving significant investment into research and development, we lead emerging trends and styles for the changing bathroom space.

2000

In 2001, Matki purchased Swadling, a small but impressive British Brassware brand based in Waterlooville, Hampshire.

The Shower Valves and fittings manufactured at Swadling were combined with our Shower Trays and Shower Enclosures in a number of very successful Walk-In ranges, beginning the trend for open showering spaces that still persists today. Matki also introduced the Elixir Collection of stand-alone Brassware to complement our Shower Enclosure design.

In 2004, Matki launched the EauZone Collection. Originally an impressive 10mm glass Walk-In range, EauZone has developed into EauZone Plus, the most comprehensive luxury frameless Shower Enclosure range, now incorporating made-to-measure options and special finishes.

Shower Enclosures, Shower Trays and Brassware by Matki

SHOWER ENCLOSURES

Matki is a specialist in designing and engineering Shower Enclosures. We offer a wide variety of styles and setups to suit all bathroom spaces from striking centrepieces to luxurious space intelligent solutions.

With well thought-out design and high-grade materials, Matki is able to achieve complete structural integrity for even the most contemporary styles. Our precisely engineered minimal profiles, reliably solid door mechanisms and expertly formed glass are testament to this important note of difference.

Every Shower Enclosure, Wet Room Panel and Bath Screen is made to order at our factory near Bristol, hand-built by expert assembly technicians.

SHOWER TRAYS

Matki designs and manufactures high quality Shower Trays in our Cornish factory, we see the Shower Tray as the highly important foundation of the showering space so we use strong materials and take time and care to ensure every detail is considered and the final product perfect.

Following our own exacting quality standards, upon leaving the factory each Shower Tray is hand finished and goes through multiple quality checks before packaging.

We offer a wide choice of shapes, sizes, styles and colours of Shower Trays, including bespoke, designed to work harmoniously with Matki Shower Enclosures. For some Collections, there is the possibility to integrate the Shower Enclosure glass into the Shower Tray, this promotes enhanced structural strength and removes the need for silicone sealant thereby providing a long-lasting seamless finish.

BRASSWARE

Matki Elixir Brassware is hand built in our factory in Hampshire. Designed to perfectly complement Matki Shower Enclosures, our Elixir Shower Valves work with a variety of systems and are specialist at providing good flow rates even at low pressures.

Our expert team test all Brassware products rigorously to work with a range of systems, and all of our Shower Valves meet WRAS and TMV2 certification.
