Installing Shower trays
Shower Tray Installation
Always check the tray for colour, size and general acceptability before installation. Manufacturers will not accept claims for any of these once the product has been installed.
Always fit the Shower Trays before tiling and temporarily fit the waste outlet pipework and trap to the tray
Shower tray adjustment
Position the Shower Trays to the walls and rebate the 'upstands' if applicable (see below) and tray walls into the plaster as required.Adjust the feet height to give the required clearance. If you are using a Shower Trays that does not have adjustable feet you will need to bed the floor to a firm base bedding in the tray
Always bed the Shower Trays on to a flat, even floor. It is essential that the shower tray base is fully supported, using either:- A silicone sealant, sand and cement -in a 5 to 1 mix, or tile grout adhesive. Always coat the whole base area of the shower tray when sticking it down, using silicone sealant, sand and cement or grout adhesive. Spotting the centre and four corners is not a correct or acceptable installation procedure raising the tray
If it is necessary to raise the shower tray to accommodate the trap and waste pipe, construct a plinth, using timbers (75 x 1OOmm), with no more than 300mm centres between each timber. Finish with marine plywood base board 20mm thick.If a plinth is constructed always bed the shower tray to a plywood base board as you would to the floor using one of the materials already described level the tray
Always make sure the shower tray is level along top edges. This is essential if built-in fall is to allow the water drainage to the waste corner.
It is important that the tray is level in all directions, place a spirit level on the top edges of the tray and adjust the feet height, or cement bed as required.Fix the plumbing and check for leaks. Whether the tray has upstands or a flat top always silicone seal between the bottom tile and top edge of the shower tray on completion.
Tile over the upstands leaving a 3-4mm gap above the top edges of the shower tray. Silicone seal the 3-4mm gap between the tile and the shower tray protecting the shower tray. Always protect the shower tray during installation with a dust sheet.
Do not use substances containing bleach when cleaning the shower tray after installationInstalling Shower enclosures.
There are numerous types of Shower Enclosures available ranging from special geometric shapes such as the quadrant and pentangle versions to corner entry enclosures, sliding, pivot, or infold doors which are combined with a number of side panels depending on the design.
Costs relate to the complexity of style, the materials used and, again, choosing cheap components may turn out to be more expensive in the long term -shower enclosures must be safe and strong and conform to BS1474 and 4mm toughened safety glass to BS6206 to provide a robust and safe product.
For ease of installation and a water- tight fit, installers should look out for the following when choosing Shower Enclosures and/or doors:-
That there is full adjustment on each wall post for out of true walls. That the sliding panels and fixed panels interlock when closed to give a positive water barrier and superior water seal. Part assemble the shower enclosure where possible and place it on the tray. When in the desired position mark the position of the wall channels to ensure that the enclosure sits in the middle of the shower tray when fitted

Using less makes much more of a difference
With climate change and sustainability ever-increasing issues on the global agenda, we’re rising to the challenge through our commitment to greater water efficiency.
Nine of our existing WCs have been redeveloped to include new water efficient, low volume, dual flushes. These eco-friendly products use up to a third less water than the average WC. These products can be identified by looking out for the 'eco sense' symbol on this website.
Planning for the future
However, we won't rest on our laurels and will be integrating a number of new developments into our range throughout 2010. These innovations demonstrate our on-going dedication to meeting the growing needs of both the public and the planet!
