METRO Tileable Channel Drain Shower Base

The METRO, one-piece shower base is created with 'fall' to the desired channel-drain position. Constructed from 3mm marine-grade aluminium, each base is accurately laser-cut, and folded by a CNC press-brake. All corners are welded along top and bottom surfaces ensuring a guaranteed watertight, tileable shower tray. The underside of the tray is fully supported by a high-density core and fully encapsulated with a polyester resin / glass-fibre coating. The topside of the tray is finished with an epoxy coating the result is NZ's most sturdy and durable, tile shower tray.

The METRO tray design comprises a slope to a linear / channel drain at the shower rear, front, or either side. Custom tray sizes and positioning of the channel-drain are easily accommodated in manufacturing.
