Fascinated by premium steel alloys
Bette is a German family-run company. We’ve been producing premium architectural bathroom components from steel-titanium alloy enamelled with purely natural materials since 1952.
Our thermoforming process allows us to create flowing shapes with extraordinary craftsmanship and precision. Bette products are one-of-a-kind, with a broad range of colours and dimensions to create an inspiring space in every bathroom design.
“Our products are part of the architecture: a carefully designed environment which makes it possible for people to experience themselves in entirely new ways.”

Bette unites humankind and water, steel and glass, architecture and form, function and sensuality. Individual needs are the entirety of our focus. We combine a broad range of models and flexible formats with the strictest standards of design and perfect craftsmanship. Our passion and enthusiasm is channelled into creating new options for the bathroom as a living space.

Our innovations are changing the market. Bette manufactured the very first freestanding, seamless bathtub, was the first provider of a modular bathroom system with bathtub, sink and shower tub made of enamelled titanium-steel alloy, presented the first flush-to-floor shower and developed pioneering systems for consistently perfect installation. As an owner-run company, we rely on long-term partnerships and personal support provided by our own sales reps and branches.
High-tech and craftsmanship.
The sophisticated designs Bette is known for are made possible thanks to our one-of-a-kind moulding techniques. Rather than stretching the steel, they pulls it smoothly into its final shape with a force of 800 tonnes. This special process allows us to achieve the greatest degree of precision and a particularly low, uniform steel thickness.
The basic form is then configured by cropping according to the dimensions and finishing the outer edges individually. Our automated serial production line can handle more than 600 different colours and numerous additional features.
Bette products grant the broadest range of design freedom in the bathroom. Our portfolio features excellent design, materials of unique quality and an extremely broad range of dimensions. Every Bette bathroom element can be individually configured by adding features or adjusting the dimensions through installation accessories.
Bette manufactures all products at the company headquarters in Delbrück, Westphalia. Our high-tech production process allows us to deliver up to about 35 million different combinations of model, dimensions and colours ex works in a very short time.
Made of steel and recommended as a style
Exclusive custom-made products, from individual dimensions to equipping cruise ships, are manufactured by hand using our own facilities. This serves as both a design lab and a field for experimenting with new ideas and developments.
Natural and recyclable.
Bette chose to focus on the natural materials glass and steel more than 60 years ago. All of our products are 100% recyclable and exclusively “Made in Germany” at our own site in Delbrück, where we bear the responsibility for 370 jobs.
All Bette bathroom elements are of lasting value, gentle on the skin, and manufactured completely without chemicals or solvents. We draw two thirds of the energy used in the manufacturing process from our own sources.
Bette bathroom elements are extremely robust and remain beautiful over the long term. Thanks to their environmentally friendly production and long life, they demonstrate a first-rate life cycle assessment and they’re particularly well-suited to long-term building projects. Each Bette product has an Environmental Product Declaration verified in accordance with ISO 14025 and complies with the LEED-certified U.S. Green Building Council.
