Tileable Grate

When you want to give your shower a sleek and modern look, you may want to consider a tileable shower floor waste grate. This solid surface grate is designed to be nearly invisible once it is tiled and water drains around the edges. These grates can be installed flat against the wall or along the shower’s edge, depending on your preference.

These drains come with a tile-ready tray that can be removed for easy cleaning. You can also install the grate before pouring the concrete for the shower base. To install the drain, make sure to purchase a shower pan with a channel drain to avoid any problems with leakage.

Center Pitch Drains

A center pitch drain will send water straight down the middle of your shower floor, into a trough. Ideally, you should pitch the floor in all directions, so that it slopes away from the center of the shower. If the floor slopes away from the center, you can choose a linear drain instead of a center pitch drain.

Linear drains are another option that allows you to create a barrier-free shower area. Unlike center pitch drains, linear drains need a wall-to-wall fit. Linear drains also need equal floor heights. Linear drains can be used in both showers and bathtubs. You can choose between a linear and a center-pitched drain for your home.


Pre-sloped Fill

The best way to install a shower floor is to purchase a pre-sloped fill. The slope should be uniform throughout the entire shower base. Shower floor adhesive needs to be waterproof. To prevent the wooden floor from sucking water out of the pre-slope, use a cleavage membrane under the metal lathe.

Use a level to measure the slope. The line should extend at least 2 inches beyond the shower drain. Once the line is level, use a grout float to force the mortar mix into the void below the wall board. Once the mortar is on the wall board, make a second pass with a straightedge. Make sure to smooth out any high spots with the straightedge. This height can vary slightly based on the tile thickness.

The Preformed Curb should be installed with 1/2″ (12mm) medium bed polymer-fortified mortar. Once the adhesive and sealant is set, apply a coat of silicone to the entire shower floor waste channel and the adjacent wall panels. Once this is dry, the shower floor waste pre-sloped fill is ready to install.
