The Story Of Carron

In 1759, the original Carron Company formed the now famous ironworks on the banks of the River Carron. The company rode the wave of the Industrial Revolution and was famed for their short-barrelled naval cannons, Carronades, used by the Royal Navy up until the 1850s.

As times changed the Carron Company moved into the production of everyday products ranging from stoves and engines to letterboxes and the famous red phone boxes still to be found throughout the country today showing you the everlasting quality and craftmanship of our products. Before long, the Carron Company began to manufacture sinks and baths but as the market changed and the original Carron Company came to a close, Carron Bathrooms took over and continued the manufacturing of baths on the same site the original company started over 250 years ago. Since then, we have been at the forefront of modern bath design and as techniques change and new processes emerge, Carron Bathrooms can still be relied on to produce baths with skill and precision, never losing sight of what makes our baths great, craftsmanship. All our baths go through an eight-stage process before leaving the factory floor. From moulding to packaging, every stage is monitored and finished by hand.


Why Choose Carron?

This leaves us so confident in our products that we offer a minimum 20-year guarantee on every Carron bath. Our continued investment in technology has allowed Carron Bathrooms to push the boundaries of design but our strongest asset is our people.

What Is Carronite?

Carronite™ was created by Carron Bathrooms to provide a higher level of comfort, luxury and peace of mind for our customers. All Carron Bathrooms baths are hand finished to our exacting standards but only Carronite™ baths, with our unique, patented, triple-layer reinforcement system come with a 30 year guarantee - proof of the confidence we have in Carronite™.

How Does It Work?

Carronite™ baths are stronger and heavier than standard acrylic baths. The additional finishing layers crafted during the Carronite™ process create a uniquely reinforced product. The added weight requires a bespoke fitting system that only adds to the stability and rigid feel of our Carronite™ baths. These elements combined help deliver the Carronite™ experience.


The Frame:

Created specifically for the Carronite™ Baseboard, this unique frame, and foot set uses the added weight and thickness of our baths to deliver additional stability and security.

The Finish:

Specially formulated, our unique Carronite™ finish results in increased rigidity while the density of the material allows greater heat retaining properties.

The Baseboard:

Custom baseboards, cut to size for each Carronite™ model, are applied by hand before the Carronite™ finish is applied
