Roman products out of this World

Leading UK shower manufacturer and designer, Roman, has provided a selection of bespoke Shower Enclosures for an exciting and prestigious new project – to refit the living accommodation for the Soyuz Russian Space Station via their long established distributor in central Russia.

The Russian Space Station has been completely revamped and Roman has provided their newest range of Shower Enclosures, Lumin8, to update the bathroom space. With limited space in the Station, the most suitable design of enclosures was the Lumin8 Bi-Fold Door, which fits perfectly with its inward opening door so there is no protrusion into the tiny bathroom space.

All of Roman’s Shower Enclosures and Bath Screens are pre-coated with Ultra Care, their unique glass protection system and come with a Truelife Lifetime Guarantee as standard.

The Lumin8 Shower Enclosures had to be protected with special bubble wrap packaging, which could withstand different atmospheric pressures to ensure the products arrived in space in pristine condition.

Soyuz Project Director, Roman Putin, comments: “The showering facilities in Soyuz were in great need of an update and as the space in the Station is extremely limited, Roman’s showering solutions were the perfect fit. Alongside Roman’s Enclosures being a practical and space saving addition to the Soyuz, the Ultra Care protection system incorporated into the glass was an additional benefit. Cleaning is as much as an issue in space as it is on land and the Ultra Care system will ensure the enclosures retain their long lasting shine and clarity.”
