pr_kahlo(Atlanta, GA – May 6, 2008) MTI Baths introduces the new Kahlo, the ultimate in comfort packaged in a clean design while meeting restricted space requirements. The Kahlo is characterized by minimalist lines, generous functionality and MTI’s world-renowned superior workmanship. But what really sets this tub apart from the rest is the extended ledge.

MTI Whirlpool’s design team expanded the Kahlo’s tub deck to provide an ideal perch to place bath faucetry. The result is a coordinated and modern look. When it comes to customization, MTI is known for providing a range of hydrotherapy features and options and the extended deck of the Kahlo is just another way that consumers can create a unique bath design.

Constructed of durable Lucite® cross-linked, high-gloss cast acrylic, the Kahlo is handcrafted and available as a soaker, whirlpool, air bath or combination, and can be equipped with either of MTI’s patented whirlpool cleaning systems – Fill Flush® or Simple Touch® – for a sparkling clean bathing experience. Choose from a variety of colors, add a hand-held shower, grab bars, additional jets, a comfortable pillow, a textured bottom or a therapeutic chromatherapy package for underwater lighting effects. You can even add whatever music soothes your soul with Stereo H2O, an invisible audio system that delivers full-bodied sound through the tub. MTI Baths makes it possible for you to create your own oasis of tranquility.

The Kahlo (MTDS-119) is 60″ x 36.25″ x 19.5″ and retails from $1,631 as a soaker to $8,082 with the Aria Elite Ultra-Whirlpool package, a luxurious upgrade that includes six point-massage jets; 12 micro-jets with Tsubo-massage, two 2-BHP pumps, an inline heater, 20 illusion air jets, integrated aromatherapy diffusion system, six seven-port lateral jets (42 air streams), two LED lights, a heated blower and a pre-leveled foam base.
