To increase level of accuracy in finishes installation, and also to ensure greater durability, technology has provided a very wide range of refined finishing products, resulting from years of morphological and material improvements, that allow precise, elegant and durable solutions.

The profiles use, which requires a specific competence, allows to raise the quality of Bathroom Pods to excellence and this is the reason why StercheleGroup®, European leader in the field, has included these products into its standard design and production "best" practice.

The function of the profiles is to connect, protect and decorate various types of coatings: for example their application at the corners protects effectively the most stressed and exposed areas, especially in the single-fired ceramic, extremely fragile if glazed on corners. The profiles also make the edges less dangerous and easier to clean, according to current European safety and health standards. (...)
