Flush Curbless 45% Channel Drain? Problems?


All,

Does anyone have a professional opinion about a flush 45 curbless shower?


The owner wants to do something like this photo. I haven't seen any installs personally. I'm in Georgia if anyone knows of anyone doing these. They have the idea that they could do two 180 doors so they could fold in to make a little more space in the bathroom when the shower is not in use.

This image is from the Infinity Drain company. I couldn't find any other decent photos, but I'd imagine there are other channel drain companies that can do the same. Anyone know of a premade 45% channel?

Are you sure that is from Infinity?

Looks like a custom drain from Heelguard USA.

ACO has a pre-made ninety degree drain and Quick Drain USA also makes a ninety degree connector plate.

Picture of ACO's 90 degree drain here

Quick Drain's corner connector is seen in their online brochure - here.

Heelguard USA corner drain here

Hard to make out why they used this drain with this set up...

I got that image from the Infinity site. I would post the link, but I don't have enough posts for that functionality.

Have you done one of these? I am slightly concerned about it being flush, but it sure looks cool.

I'll check out ACO and see what I can find. Thanks!

John,

I looked, but wasn't able to find a 90 degree from ACO or connector for Quick Drain. Perhaps these aren't on the internet?

Have you ever seen or installed one of these with the 90 on the room side?

I have not installed a drain set like shown but these corner drains are more common overseas.

A flush drain install requires more care and more work than a standard curbed version.

A few years back we removed a curb an left the doors off to achieve the extra room in a small shower.

This look could as be achieved with a simple point drain and small tile - care in tile layout is needed to pull off the look your after.

Check out ACO's Facebook site and Quick Drains Web site for more pictures. Heelguard USA has few examples on their Facebook page...
