Are you a plumber, builder or homeowner?
Need help choosing which shower type will be best for your project?
What’s an Impresa tile shower?
Quality tiles and a competent tiler will achieve a great-looking tiled shower, but the forming of a tile shower base on-site may be beyond a tiler’s skills and experience, not to mention the high number of shower floor waterproofing failures. Impresa tileable showers consist of an aluminium shower base (epoxy-coated / fiberglass reinforced) coupled with an integrated easy-clean waste-trap; glazing channels factory-applied, and an integrated 10mm-thick frameless-glass enclosure.
What’s an Impresa stainless-steel shower?
Impresa manufactures stunning stainless-steel trays made from Grade 304 / 1.5mm thick material. Check out our economy, full-system tray and glass showers – NEXUS Stainless and URBIS Stainless. Our higher spec showers STILE Stainless and METRO Stainless are available as tray-only options or a complete tray and glass integrated system.
Why choose an Impresa Shower System?
Impresa shower trays totally eliminate the problems and risks of shower base construction and waterproofing. With guaranteed long-term performance, our trays are both a proven problem-solver and time-saver, and indispensable to many of NZ’s best tilers, builders and plumbers! Impresa shower bases… literally bulletproof and supported with a 25-year warranty.
A one-piece shower tray / base is the only reliable leakproof method
for long-term watertightness.
Impresa shower trays manufactured
from an epoxy-coated, thick marine-grade aluminium are guaranteed
‘bulletproof’, able to withstand all the rigors of such a wet environment.
A tray eliminates the common waterproofing problems of pinholes,
cracking, building movement, general ‘breakdown’ due to the age of
the coating, and even poor workmanship of the waterproofer and / or tiler.
The easy-clean waste is connected to the waste water plumbing before the tray is installed, but could be installed after – if sufficient access under the floor is available.
