Using the new shower membranes makes the job of waterproofing your shower easier thn ever. The membrane goes on top of your floor and the stone/tile is installed directly on top of the membrane! Doing it this way, allows the P-Trap to hook directly to the bottom of the Trench Drain for a superior threaded connection and a low profile.
A new bathroom, particularly a master bath is an important focal point to any home. A spectacular shower is an essential feature and not all showers are created equal. As a building contractor, I have often been frustrated by the lack of variety offered when it comes to shower drains. Finally, here is a drain that is affordable, easy to install and wonderfully creative in providing a very special feature to your beautiful new shower. When finished, the floor tile will come to within 1/8" of the front or side tile, leaving a very sleek (1/8" x length of your drain) gap sufficient to handle 3 times the flow of an average drain. (Note: A Decorative/Affordable Grate or cover is also available)
The Trench Drain offers:- Simplicity for installation- Low profile for minimal shower pan height - The opportunity to use large floor tiles in the shower as there is only one slope to the drain.
- Threaded discharge to receive a 2” or 1 1/2" male adapter in PVC or Copper- A
beautifully unique finished effect for the customized bathroom shower
- Your choice of a Bottom Discharge Drain or a Side Discharge Drain
- Waterproof Glue Flange available
- Custom lengths available at NO CHARGE - just ask
The Trench Drain is available in five (5) sizes – 2', 3',4', 5' and 6' lengths and is 2 7/8" wide x 2" high. Because it is made from a plastic composition, it is extremely smooth and everything from soapy water to hair flows easily and quickly thru the drain. As a bottom or side discharge, this drain offers a very low profile. PLUS this drain can easily be flush mounted in the floor for the Barrier Free Access Shower.

"I really like this New style of Drain. It allows a sleek and beautiful new look. Plus, with a traditional center floor drain, shower floors are limited to mosaic & small tiles because all sides need to slope to the center. With a Linear Trench Drain, you have a perfectly flat floor with just one gentle slope to the drain. Now you can use ANY size stone/tile on your beautiful new shower floor. Plus, preparation and installation are much easier for your installer." Thanks!
