At Krion Porcelanosa Group, we strongly believe in minimising the use of resources by opting for recycled materials to manufacture new products, something we call “Sustainable Awareness”

This is the case for Krion Shell™, a strong and sustainable material. The structural body is made of dolomite, a natural mineral, along with recycled PET-derived bioresin. It also has a strong and homogeneous external layer made of alumina trihydrate and resin.

Without a doubt, the materials used to manufacture our washbasins, bathroom countertops and sustainable shower trays represent an absolute revolution in bathroom design, whilst remaining attractive and functional.

Eco-friendly shower trays

The different models of Krion Shell™ sustainable shower trays stand out for their modern and innovative appearance, whilst also bringing both hygiene and safety to the bathroom. Their green design makes them an exclusive and unique product, ideally suited to creating totally sustainable and customised spaces. 

For example, the amount of recycled PET in a Slope shower tray measuring 150 cm x 90 cm is equivalent to 380 plastic bottles. It also has sound-absorbing properties, to help create a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Thanks to its production process, Krion Shell™ is available in a broad range of colours without losing any benefits, in White, Taupe, Graphite, Grey and Beige, in both a gloss and matte finish. It also comes in different textures - Rock, Concrete and Silk - adding a touch of design and personality to the shower tray depending on your personal preferences and needs.

 

Certifications: safe and sustainable products

Krion Shell™’s commitment to the environment and its concern regarding improving people’s quality of life have made it a safe and sustainable product, endorsed with various certifications. 

This includes a certification from SCS Global Service, a leading independent North American environmental certification company, which verifies and guarantees that all certified Krion Shell™ products contain a minimum of 5% recycled product waste in their total composition, advocating more sustainable and environmentally friendly production.

Krion Porcelanosa Group has also conducted different external tests at the Valencian Institute for Microbiology (IVAMI) to verify that Krion Shell™, and the by-products deriving from it, are environmentally inert, not affecting the possible accidental release into the environment and also responding to increasing societal demand. These tests guarantee that the material is harmless for living organisms, including those on land and in aquatic ecosystems.
