ROCK SOLID CONSTRUCTION
Made of solid 3-pound EPS block construction (the toughest in the industry), our lightweight seats easily install in just a few minutes. You'll maximize the enjoyment of your KBRS Shower System with a ShowerSeat™ that's the perfect fit for your new tile shower. Our high-density expanded polystyrene (EPS) ready to tile shower seats are especially strong, lightweight, and durable. The solid block construction eliminates the "void" created when using framing to construct a shower seat. By eliminating the "void", you eliminate any place for mold and mildew to grow.
Each ShowerSeat™ is coated with a protective elastomeric primer that allows any surface be applied. Tile is the most popular surfacing used; however, other decorative shower surfaces may be applied as desired. Solid Surface makes a great bench top.

Determine the height of the Floating Bench Seat and mark on the sidewall. Measure down 1”, mark sidewall, and level around to the opposite wall.
Using the screws provided, install the top edge of the bracket, flush with the marked line, bring the front edge of the bracket down 1/8” to provide the Floating Bench with a slope. Repeat on the opposite side.
Dry fit the Floating Bench Seat for fit, trim bench if needed to fit. Ensure the Floating Bench Seat has a slope to the shower. Adjustments can be made using standard woodworking tools.
Install the seat by applying a generous bead of polyurethane sealant to the bottoms of the brackets and the back of the seat. Install the seat by pushing down and into the back wall.
Apply polyurethane sealant to the top joint ONLY & tool smooth. Cure sealant for 15 minutes. Once sealant is complete, begin waterproofing.
Use the gauging fabric (supplied) to waterproof the seat*, coat & embed the fabric so that no white shows. After waterproofing, wait 24 hours before applying surfacing OR weight.

CAN YOU CUT THE SHOWER SEAT ON SITE?

CAN I ORDER A CUSTOM SHOWER SEAT?
Absolutely! Scroll down below to fill out a custom order form or CLICK HERE >
WHAT KIND OF THIN-SET SHOULD I USE?
Any quality "polymer modified" thin-set will do just fine. Do not use a premixed thin-set (i.e.... water already added). A premixed thin-set that comes in a bucket with water already added will not cure properly. Remember: No premix! Always add your own water! Different terms for modified thin-set include: modified thin-set, modified thin set with a latex additive, fortified thin-set, polymer modified thin-set, polymer fortified blended thin-set. The thin-set must meet or exceed ANSI A118.4 and ANSI Al18.11 requirements when mixed with water.
