FAQ - Shower Bases

Do I need to pitch the floor of my shower base toward the drain?

Is it necessary to set the shower base in mortar or epoxy?

No.  The shower base is designed to rest directly on the subfloor.

What is the shower base trench cover made of?

The trench grate is made of stainless steel.

Will I need to cut the floor when installing my shower base?

Yes.  A portion of the subfloor will need to be cut in the drain area to accommodate the lowest part of the trench drain.
