Home / About Products / About MTI Tubs / About BASICS® Tubs – Standard Features

MTI BASICS includes the most popular sizes and shapes of tubs. All are individually manufactured and handcrafted using the highest-quality materials. 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.

Standard Features and Construction of MTI BASICS freestanding and drop-in tubs are listed below  |  Click here for information on MTI BASICS Walk-in tub

  • 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.

As you Plan

If aging-in-place, universal design or ADA-related products work best for your needs, MTI has a variety of bathtubs designed specifically to work within ADA guidelines, as well as a walk-in tub, barrier-free shower pans and teak shower seats that could be the solution for your bathroom. Wall-mounted Counter-Sinks and Vanity Sinks that allow for space beneath are also ideal for designs that address mobility issues.
