ABOUT THE KBRS SHOWERNICHE™
Using carefully designed details will ensure your new shower is all that you desire – and so much more. Our recessed ShowerNiche™ product line allows you full customization through a variety of shapes and sizes you can combine for your specialized needs. Whether you choose side-by-side, separated, stacked or any combination of the three, all KBRS ShowerNiche™ options come Ready-To-Tile. Made of one-half inch solid PVCore™ composite material, your KBRS, Inc. shower niche is extremely durable and, of course, like all of our products, completely waterproof. You simply attach the ready to tile shower niche to wall studs using deck screws for quick and easy 5 minute installation.

HIGH QUALITY CONSTRUCTION
The KBRS ShowerNiche™ is a tileable recessed shower niche manufactured from rigid, non-porous PVCore™. The ShowerNiche™ is 100% waterproof and does not require box framing for support. The ShowerNiche™ mounts flush with the wall’s backer board (no flange to protrude). Once in position, it only requires a few backer board screws to mount it to a wall stud.

Factory waterproofed and ready to be surfaced with tile and/or decorative surfacing. Made from durable PVCore composite material. Can be used with other ShowerNiche™ sizes to create custom niche configurations. Installation only takes a few minutes. Attaches to wall studs with tile backer board screws. Once installed, just apply your thin-set and decorative tile.

+ Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE SHOWERNICHE™ MADE OF?
The KBRS ShowerNiche™ is a tileable recessed shower niche manufactured from rigid, non-porous PVCore™. The ShowerNiche™ is 100% waterproof and does not require box framing for support. The ShowerNiche™ mounts flush with the wall’s backer board (no flange to protrude). Once in position, it only requires a few backer board screws to mount it to a wall stud.

HOW MANY SHOWER NICHE SIZES DOES KBRS OFFER?
KBRS Offers 8 different size options for shower shelving. You can mix and match our niches into any combination.

HOW FAR SHOULD THE NICHE PROTRUDE FROM THE STUD FRAME?
The niche should be installed so that it protrudes slightly from the stud frame, this way when back board is installed around it it will be flush with the backer board. Install the niche so that it protrudes from the studs equal to the backer board thickness.

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.
