Tiled Church Baptistries – Without Tiles!28th April 2015
The old way of making a church baptismal was to make a concrete hole, line it with a waterproof membrane and then tile it. Within a few years the grout would be mouldy or, worse still, leaking.
One of the many advantages of a GRP baptistery is that it goes on for years and does not leak and, aside from any plumbing, does not need any maintenance. But would you still like the look of tiles?
Now, the inside of our pre-formed GRP baptistries can be lined with sheets of fibreglass tiles. The Jordan-style baptistries, with the steps as a separate unit which is fixed in place at installation, lends itself well to this tiled finish.
If you would like a tiled look in a toilet/washroom within the church and want it quickly and cheaply, we make the sheets in interlocking sheets approx. 60cm x 60cm, in sheets approx. 120cm x 180cm or to custom sizes.
