Slimline Quadrant Shower Tray 1000 x 1000mm

Fitting instructions for the Slimline Quadrant Shower Tray 1000 x 1000mm

Pre-Installation Checks

Please unpack and check your shower tray for damage and make sure that it is the size and colour you require. Do not install if not satisfied as the manufacturer will not accept consequential claims.

Please also check that the top surface of your shower tray is compatible with your intended shower enclosure, taking into account the loss of dimension that will result after tiles etc have been fitted. This is particularly important if you have chosen a tiling upstand version or have elected to recess the edge of your shower tray into adjacent walls.

Shower Tray Types


The shower tray you have selected is either Non Easy Plumb (i.e. sits on the floor and can also be installed as a raised installation), Easy Plumb (i.e. comes with integral plinth, feet and universal panel and easy plumb kit), or ResinLite which can be installed as a Non Easy Plumb or Easy Plumb by using the feet and the universal panel and easy plumb kit.

Note: Some shower tray types may have transparent protective film, this will be indicated by a label on the surface.


Handling, Care and Cleaning of your Shower Tray


When handling your shower tray take care not to damage the vulnerable bottom edges and when installing take particular care to protect the visible surfaces from impact damage or abrasions.

Water feeds should not be connected to a water softener system as the salts used may discolour the shower tray surface. Steam generators can be used but you must seek advise from our technical department before proceeding. It is normal for small amounts of localised water to be retained in the shower tray after use which should be wiped dry immediately to prevent buildup of mineral sediments. The shower tray should be cleaned regularly as detailed below and care should be taken to avoid cleaners or polishes that leave a waxy residue which will make the surface slippery when wet. MX Shower trays have good resistance to acids and alkalis but must not come into contact with organic solvents. Bleach (or products containing bleach) and cleaners of a highly abrasive nature should not be used. Washing up liquid or cleaners that clearly state “suitable for acrylic surfaces” may be used. If minor surface damage has occurred during or after installation repair kits may be available for your shower tray. For these and other enquiries please contact your supplier.

FLOOR INSTALLATION
1. Place the shower tray in position on the floor and mark the area covered including access to connect the waste pipe to the trap. If installing on a suspended floor, the total floor area (or larger) covered by the shower tray must be removed and replaced with a single piece of ply (min 18mm thick) and the access for the waste outlet connection should also be constructed. If installing on a concrete floor the plywood board is not required but a trench for the waste pipe and trap will be required with sufficient access to connect the plumbing once the tray has been installed. If using a shower tray with a tiling upstand allowance must be made for recessing the tray into adjacent walls to allow tiling down onto the tray surface (see Fig 1).

2. Put the ply in position, place the shower tray on the ply and mark the waste hole location (Fig 2).

3. Drill a hole in the ply suitable for the waste trap (Fig 3). Note this hole may also require a small tongue section to be removed from the ply for some types of waste trap. Keep all holes to a minimum.

4. Remove the ply and install the waste outlet pipe and trap in the cavity or trench (concrete floors) and if using a trench, blank off the area for the pipe and trap to avoid blockage by cement.

Note: If the type of shower tray being installed has a protective film, this should be removed at this stage.


5. Fit the waste trap to the shower tray protecting any exposed threads with masking tape.

6. If fitting a Versatile Seal Strip, (Flat Top Trays only) please follow instructions accordingly. Before proceeding dry fit all items to ensure compatibility.

7. Mix fine sand, cement and an anti-crumbling agent (Unibond / PVA) to a workable consistency and cover the full area of the ply. Trowel to a thickness suitable to allow levelling and full support of the shower tray (Fig 4). Silicone sealants, foams, mastics or similar must not be used to substitute for cement.

8. Place the shower tray onto the wet cement ensuring it is fully supported. Level the top rims only as the shower tray has a built in fall to allow adequate drainage (Fig 5).

9. When the cement has set remove any excess from the underside of the waste trap, remove the masking tape and make connection to the waste outlet pipe. Check the shower tray and all connections for water tightness and drainage. After all checks and adjustments seal along the tiling line with silicone sealant.

10. For concrete floors it is necessary to fill in the access area to the waste using cement to give proper support to the shower tray after all checks and adjustments then seal along the tiling line with silicone sealant, if necessary use a proprietary silicone cleaning solvent prior to application.



RAISED INSTALLATION

1. Build a rigid wooden frame to the overall size and shape of the shower tray leaving the end section(s) free to allow ac cess (Fig 1). Ensure the depth is sufficient to accommodate the waste trap and pipe run. If using a shower tray with a tiling upstand allowance must be made for recessing the tray into adjacent walls to allow tiling down onto the tray surface (see Fig 2).

2. Prepare a single piece of ply (min 18mm) to the overall size of the shower tray and place it t emporarily on the frame making sure it is level (Fig 3).

3. Place the shower tray on the ply, mark the position of the waste hole (Fig 4) and then remove.

4. Drill a hole in the ply suitable for the waste trap (Fig 5). Note: this hole may also require a small tongue section to be removed from the ply for some types of waste trap. Keep all holes to a minimum.



5. Remove the ply, install the waste pipe. Refit ply and secure with screws to the frame.

Note: If the shower tray being installed has a protective film, this should be removed at this stage.

6. Fit the waste trap to the shower tray protecting any exposed threads with masking tape.

7. If fitting a Versatile Seal Strip, (Flat Top Trays only) please follow instructions accordingly. Before proceeding dry fit all items to ensure compatibility.

8. Mix fine sand, cement and an anti-crumbling agent (Unibond / PVA) to a workable consistency and cover the full area of the ply. Trowel to a thickness suitable to allow levelling and full support of the shower tray (Fig 6). Silicone sealants, foams, mastics or similar must not be used to substitute for cement.



9. Place the shower tray onto the wet cement ensuring it is fully supported. Level the top rims only as the shower tray has a built in fall to allow adequate drainage (Fig 7).

10. When the cement has set remove any excess from the underside of the waste trap, remove the masking tape and make connection to the waste outlet pipe. Check the shower tray and all connections for water tightness and drainage. After all checks and adjustments seal along the tiling line with silicone sealant, ensuring that all mating surfaces are clean and free from contaminates. If necessary use a proprietary silicone cleaning solvent prior to application.

11. When installation is complete you should be able to attach or repair the waste and the waste outlet and should NOT construct your platform with this in mind including any decorative finish. When fitting a shower enclosure refer to the manufacturer’s installation instructions.

VERSATILE SEAL STRIP INSTALLATION
The Versatile Seal Strip will instantly transform any flat top shower tray to a tiling upstand option.

The Versatile Seal Strip is an extruded self-adhesive UPVC tiling upstand that is fixed by hand, see relevant points on floor and raised shower tray instructions.

This extruded strip comes complete with a mould resistant cushioned seal to ensure a snug fit which combined with its unique angled design helps ensure a watertight seal between the shower tray or bath and the wall. The slim profile of tiling upstand allows easy tile fixing.

Fitting Options

All mating surfaces of the shower tray for the Versatile Seal Strip and Silicone Seals must be clean and free from contaminants if necessary use a proprietary silicone cleaning solvent prior to application.

Please Note: Avoid spillage on visible areas as some solvents may mark the surface.

To fit the Versatile Seal Strip remove backing strips from fixing tape and apply to the tray or bath as shown in (Fig 1).



Fit the Versatile Seal Strip to the tray or bath and simply mitre the lip with two 45? cuts the bend to form corner or butt joint (Fig 2).

Check the Versatile Seal Strip fits the shower tray or bath, then mark the excess length and trim with a sharp knife (Fig 1).

Apply a small bead of silicone on the internal mitred corner before tiling, this will ensure a waterproof seal as shown in (Fig 2).
