Deep, grand and very comfortable, The Clyde is a luxurious single ended roll top bath. One end slopes elegantly for comfortable, relaxing bathing whilst the other square end has a built in deck designed for mounting single bath taps and our bath plunger unit. The plunger unit drains the bath water and is also the baths overflow system so no overflow hole needs to be cut.
There is also the option to chose a classic bath mixer, although you will not be able to have the plunger unit if you choose the mixer option.
The river Clyde in Glasgow is famous for its boat building past with the Queen Elizabeth, Mary and QE2 all constructed here.
Raw: The cast iron exterior of the bath is left raw and black, with a rough textured surface.
Primed: The bath is treated with a hard primer finish that creates a perfectly smooth surface, ready for painting.
Painted: We can custom paint your bath any colour you specify in either matt or gloss. Weprefer to use a RAL colour but can also use most ranges of paints.
Polished: A silver, shiny smooth surface is revealed by polishing the cast iron exterior of the bath to the finest grade. Natural pitting in the cast iron is also revealed.

Our approach to Iron
Drummonds' bathroom products are made to order by hand in the company's own foundry and workshops.
All Drummonds’ baths are made from solid cast iron using the time-honoured sandcasting technique first used by the finest Victorian foundries. Each part of the process is hands on, from the hand carving of the resin patterns to the hand pouring of the hot, liquid iron into each individual mould. It is these skilled techniques that give Drummonds’ cast iron baths the quality and thickness that makes them distinctive and durable.
Enamelling and hand-finishing each bath is a process where attention to detail is key. Our unique powdered enamel is sprinkled by hand up to five layers thick, resulting in the beautiful, undulating finish that forms the interior of our baths.
See the work that goes into every Drummonds roll top bath in this video, which shows something of the expertise and precision behind every product which carries the Drummonds brand name.
