Easy access low level shower former

Showerstone from Marmox guarantees a leak-free shower

In association with

Specifying the right shower base is crucial for performance, suitability for the application and ease of access for the user. The continued growth in popularity of showers and wet rooms, combined with the UK’s ageing population, means accessibility has become a key consideration.

Marmox has developed Showerstone, a sloping level access shower former in polymer-concrete/GRP composite, which is designed to be covered with either vinyl sheet flooring or ceramic tiles. The high performance, tough shower former base incorporates a built in sloped drainage area and integrated drain, providing an effective alternative to building up the gradient with the screed, and guaranteeing a leak-free shower.

The hard-resilient surface can accept point loading, and is suitable for wheelchair access because it is able to withstand up to 600kg, so vinyl flooring or small mosaic tiles can be used without any risk of compression. The Showerstone former can be easily be installed on wooden or solid floors. On concrete floors the former is adhered to the concrete and screed up to, creating a seamless floor. The 22mm thickness of the Showerstone is perfectly suited to timber floors, where it can simply replace typical floor boarding, which is also generally 22mm. When fixing to timber, Showerstone can be laid directly on top of the floor joists without support except around the drain area, saving time and cost.
