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.
POINT DRAIN TILE-BASIN® INSTALLATION
The KBRS Tile-Basin® is easily installed using quality polymer modified thin-set, and in less time than traditional mortar beds. Dry fit Tile-Basin® to ensure proper size and drain alignment. Using the appropriate notched trowel, apply an approved modified thin-set to substrate as if laying a large format tile. Apply a generous bead of ShowerSeal® Polyurethane Sealant (or equal) around the outside perimeter of the shower drain flange. Lay Tile-Basin® in place and stand on it to ensure proper bond beneath. Reattach the tile drain’s clamping-collar and tighten bolts.
LINEAR TILE-BASIN® INSTALLATION
The KBRS Linear Line is a rock-solid alternative to a field-sloped mortar bed. Our linear shower pans are lightweight, yet will provide the superior strength and durability necessary for a successful tile shower installation. KBRS Linear Line shower pans are easily installed using modified thin-set mortar. Linear shower pans are available in standard sizes and unlimited custom sizes (up to 9500 square inches). The KBRS Linear Tile-Basin® is a fully waterproofed linear shower solution. It is specially designed with a patented perimeter flange that is not only easy to install but is guaranteed to prevent leaks. Built with a completely integrated perimeter flange, and hard curb attachments.
* While KBRS can manufacture any shape, size, and drain location for a custom shower pan, it is recommended drain location must be minimum 10" 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.
