Each product is built according to the specifications of the customer when it is ordered. Multiple quality control checks are employed, including individual water-testing and component operation. MTI’s goal is to provide customers with handcrafted, quality products that will last.

  • Constructed in durable cross-linked cast acrylic with a multi-layered backing of fiberglass / resin / titanium.
  • Acrylic is extremely scratch- and stain-resistant, yet renewable because the color goes all the way through the material.
  • The surface is non-porous, which makes cleaning and sanitizing easier.
  • Rectangular and corner tubs also receive reinforcement of ½” round metal tubing in all sides.
  • Standard in white or available in biscuit for an upcharge.
  • Textured bottom meets ASTM F-462-1994 slip resistance.
  • Lead time: soakers and whirlpools 5 business days; air baths 7.
  • Optional “Quick Ship / Priority” reduces lead time.
