MANUFACTURED WITH KBRS HARD CORE TECHNOLOGY
A shower’s tile assembly is only as good as the substrate in which it is installed. A KBRS ShowerSlope™ is the most rock-solid, prefabricated, tileable shower pan available. It’s a pre-sloped, structurally sound, textured substrate that will prevent tile assembly failure due to ponding water, deflection, and poor thin-set bonding.
CUT-TO-FIT IN THE FIELD
Rarely are walls perfectly square, and shower drain locations are usually offset as to not interfere with the buildings floor joists. A ShowerSlope™ is manufactured with these challenges in mind. The shower slope is slightly oversized so that it can be cut to fit in the field or on site to accommodate out-of-square walls and offset drain locations. Simply measure the area you wish to cut: up to 3" off any side on a standard sized slope, or up to 2" off a custom size slope is recommended, then cut the ShowerSlope™ with desired tool.
MULTIPLE STANDARD AND CUSTOM OPTIONS
The ShowerSlope® comes in several standard sizes with multiple shape and drain location options, making it easy to find the right shower pan for your project. Looking for more flexibility? KBRS is the leader in custom shower pans, with the unique ability to custom manufacture ANY shape, ANY size, with ANY drain location*. We can even customize a shower pan to just about any drain type standard or linear. While our shower installation kits are not available in custom sizes, you can still order a custom shower pan and add additional shower accessories to fit your project needs.

HARD TO DECIDE?
TILE-BASIN® VS SHOWERSLOPE™
What's the difference between the Tile-Basin® and ShowerSlope™? The ShowerSlope™ is identical to the Tile-Basin® with two exceptions. The ShowerSlope™ DOES NOT come factory prepped with an elastomeric waterproofing membrane coating, or with factory installed perimeter components (i.e. flange or curb), the ShowerSlope™ can also be cut-to-fit in the field, where as the Tile-Basin® cannot. Visit our Resources page for more information to help you decide which product is right for your shower project.

This instructional video will demonstrate how to install the KBRS, Inc. ShowerSlope™, HardCurb®, and how to apply the KBRS ShowerSeal® waterproofing system to ensure a completely leak-proof system for absolute peace of mind when installing a tile shower. The KBRS Shower Systems is ideal for replacing traditional mortar beds during shower construction. KBRS pre-sloped shower pans offer reassurance with a fast and easy installation. A ShowerSlope™ can be cut-to-fit in the field, making it ideal for on site customization and adjustments for out of square walls. The KBRS ShowerSlope™ can be ordered at any custom size, shape and with any drain location.
* While KBRS can manufacture any shape, size, and drain location for a custom shower pan, it is recommended drain location must be minimum 7” for T1 drain and 8” for T2 drain from any side of a shower base because this can make tiling difficult during installation, and make the shower basin edge visibly steep. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis after consulting your customer service representative.
*Please refer to your custom order form for more information about minimum drain shower pan limitations. Consider this when you order your drain, KBRS linear drain bodies are 2” larger than a linear drain grate. This linear drain body flange allows for easy waterproofing during installation.
Note: Custom bases and shower pans are manufactured to a +/- 1/8" (3.175mm) tolerance.
