It all began in 1928 when Georges Delabie, a sanitary ware wholesale merchant in Paris, acquired a foundry located in Friville in the Somme, France. There he produced mainly taps and floor traps for bathrooms and kitchens. The business was then passed down through the generations to preserve the brand’s identity and continue its pursuit of excellence.
Initially specializing in domestic sanitary fittings, Delabie quickly repositioned itself in the sector that now constitutes its core target market – buildings in the public domain and is a leading player in the non-domestic, sanitary fittings market. They are recognized as the European market leader for tap wares and sanitary accessories for the commercial as well as healthcare sector, and continue to grow by opening international subsidiaries throughout the globe.
The sleek lines incorporated into the design of their mixers create an urbanized feel without neglecting user comfort. Unlike your conventional washbasin mixers, the majority of Delabie’s mixers are fitted with an exclusive solution which effectively reduces temperature variations if there are pressure variations in the system.
Some of them have specifically designed interiors that reduce the volume of stagnant water in the tap’s body, and by doing so significantly reduces the risk of bacterial development. In addition to that, their Securitouch technology which was specifically designed for patients, the disabled, the elderly and children, provides increased safety for superior comfort. The entire mechanism is thermally insulated, preventing any risk of burns when touching the mixer.
DELABIE’s Be-Line® grab bars and shower seats combine aesthetics and comfort. The innovative design of these grab bars and shower seats leave an aura of well-being, both at home and in the wider environment.
DELABIE’s stainless steel grab bars, shower seats and accessories are made from bacteriostatic 304 stainless steel which forms an invisible protective layer, shielding it from contact with air and water. This ensures that the surface remains bright, hard and smooth, preventing bacteria from easily adhering to the surface compared to other materials. Besides that, particular attention has been paid to the design of the bars to lessen the number of joins and seams, reducing the build-up of dirt and bacterial niches making them hygiene friendly.
