Bathrooms forming an integrated whole
Bathrooms made from HPL materials look noble and fascinating: The uniform design of walls and floors has a calming effect, as nothing disturbs the view. A bathroom with minmal joints mets all the demands at modern bathroom design: pure aesthetics, great luxury, high-quality materials and undisturbed peace and quiet. They are more than just practical wet cells for the necessary personal hygiene. Body, mind and soul can relax and recuperate from the hectic of everyday life.
Big choice of decors
The innovative, large-format sheets for walls and furniture made from HPL provide many practical advantages such as easy cleaning; they serve high demands on hygiene, offer a good room climate by means of back ventilation and easy retrofitting because of the reversible system. The aesthetic aspect is obvious. The flush use of the elements has a uniform effect. There is almost no limit to the choice of decors, surfaces and colours. Diverse looks create individual styles for your bathroom. For our product partner see: Villeroy und Boch
Through their extensive design with very few joints, our bathroom modules offer enormous advantages: Reducing the number of joins requires considerably less time for cleaning. For less edges and joints means less dirt and bacteria, and mould doesn’t even develop. The surfaces can easily be disinfected by wiping which is favourable for sensitive areas.
Retrofitting and modernizing
A speciality of our GHK DOMO bathroom modules made from high-quality HPL is certainly the reversibility of the system. Behind the wall panels there is a highly loadable system which is easily and flexibly accessible for technical maintenance and changes at any time. This reversibility offers unestimable advantages also for retrofitting accessories or supporting equipment in nursing homes or hotels.
The toilet can be adjusted in height (also with washlet function), additional handles can be retrofitted anywhere – also for a short time. The floor level shower area is slip-resistant and can be conceived optically or tactilely. In general, all surfaces and functional products can be conceived by feeling, seeing and hearing according to the two-senses-principle.
The shower offers enough room to sit in and can be opened wide enough for wheelchair or shower stool access and for support by a caregiver. For the washstands, too, we aim at the highest degree of independence possible. By adjusting their height they can be comfortably used sitting as well as standing. Both situations easily allow access tot he oversized mirrored cabinet. Long LED light strips on both sides ensure good lighting for the person in the mirror. Wall fittings also allow washing your own hair at the washstand.

Central material for GHK DOMO is HPL (High Pressure Laminate). HPL has an environmental product declaration (EPD) for the highest achievable level in accordance with ISO 14020, type III.
HPL is environmentally neutral in its impact, because:
- it has a very long lifespan due to its characteristics
- it is almost free from emissions in its use
- it consists of 70% cellulose and 30% resins
- HPL refuse can be exploited thermically in plants authorized by the authorities
GHK DOMO is certified by TÜV. Without exception we only cooperate with suppliers who invest a lot of trouble into sustainable development and eco-efficiency. Carbon footprint is always part of our considerations. This is why our whole plant – administration included – runs on ecological power.
HPL High Pressure Laminate – extremely resilient:
HPL (High Pressure Laminate) is an easy-care and robust all-rounder which can be used as material in many different areas. The material is decorative, robust, scratch-proof and wear-resistant, anti-static, damp- and acid-resistant, food-safe and the product characteristics make the compact sheets flexible for many fields of application. For a long time HPL has been highly valued as material in the healthcare system, for laboratory equipment, shop and booth construction, wall facing, in retirement and nursing homes as well as in hotels, swimmingpools and spa facilities.
HPL is environmentally neutral in its impact and consists of 70% regrowing raw materials such as cellulose and 30% resins, which allows for a thermic utilization at the end of its lifespan.
More hygiene by less joints
This factor has a direct and immediate effect on the time necessary for the daily cleaning of surfaces. Many more joints provide many more dirt edges – often with coarse pores – where bacteria and mould are deposited if they are not specifically cleaned and dried every day.
