PlumbaseINVENT: TubfixAugust 25, 2017
Tubfix, an innovative bath frame construction kit, eliminates the hassle of getting the correct heights for your bath framework. Instead of the usual struggles associated with creating a wooden frame, Tubfix offers a cost effective, time saving, reliable solution.
Priced at just £39.95 (Ex. VAT) for the front panel and £22.95 (Ex. VAT) for the end panel, you can now benefit from a bath frame that takes just 30 minutes to install.
Forward-thinking inventor Laurence Beeke was one day replacing a bath when he came across the typical problem of fixing a wooden frame neatly and securing the narrow lip of the bath to support it, as well as making it strong enough to support a tiled finish.
A gap in the market
Straight away, he noticed there was no product on the market to combat these typical problems. So, Laurence developed a quick and easy, stable and secure bath and panel fixing framework.
Speaking about the short period of time it took for Tubfix to be produced from his first sketch on paper, Laurence said, “It was surprisingly quick. It only took around nine months, which was from the initial drawings and planning on a computer, to the product actually being shipped.”
Laurence stated the most rewarding part of his journey was receiving such positive feedback from the PlumbaseINVENT initiative in July. “To see people’s reactions were fantastic. The feedback at Installer2017 was really positive too, but I was delighted that a national retailer such as Plumbase showed so much interest. I’m so grateful for the chance to have my product in branches across the country.”
