The little bit of luxury between bathtub and wall
With BETTEUPSTAND we provide a hygienic, durable and most importantly, visually appealing solution. The BetteUpstand allows Bette baths and shower trays to extend under the backsplash and makes the use of silicone in the wall edge unnecessary.
While designers keep developing new and more elegant models for baths, the edge to the backsplash stays the same – a silicone joint. BetteUpstand changes all this.

Planning with BetteUpstand
The BetteUpstand is a 35 mm high, enamelled upturn of the tray or bath edge, of which 12 mm is tiled over during installation. It makes makes the use of silicone in the wall edge unnecessary.
BetteUpstand made to measure
To allow you to enjoy the benefits of BetteUpstand even with unusual room geometries or planning projects, we adapt the upstands individually, in accordance with a given drawing. Because of this flexibility, BetteUpstand can be integrated into virtually any bathroom architecture.
The BetteUpstand can also be specifically adapted for corners where the wall area does not continue. We recommend setting the upstand back by 10 mm. The front can then be neatly tiled over and the clear joint line of the splashback is retained.
