Installation
Please read these instructions carefully before starting the installation
procedure.
Important Notes
1. It is recommended that the shower tray is installed before tiling. This will make
sure that the tray is rebated into the plaster behind where the tile face will be,
thus helping to achieve a watertight joint.
2.With a rebate or partial rebate the amount of adjustment on the enclosure could
be affected. Therefore make sure that the enclosure to be fitted has sufficient
adjustment to mate with the shower tray.
3. A waste with an 85 mm diameter flange must be used with these shower trays
as supplied.
The first step of the installation is to decide whether you need a non-riser or riser
installation for your tray. To find out answer these simple questions.
1. If the floor is out of level by 1/4” (6 mm) or more across the
tray length the installation of a riser tray is recommended
2. Can a hole be made to fit the waste into
the floor/timber/between the joists
YES
NO

Non-Riser Installation
1.
Carefully remove all of the blue protective film from the tray for inspection.
Caution! Additional protective coverings such as a dust sheet should then be
used to protect the tray from damage from falling objects.
2.
Fit the 85 mm top access waste (supplied) to the tray before setting down being
careful not to overtighten. Make sure that the seal is in place. Additional beads
of silicone sealant must be used (refer to Figure 1).
Note! To tighten, remove the Shower Grid from the Flange and turn it upside
down. Locate it into the slots on the flange and tighten in a clockwise direction.
Remove and refit the Shower Grid to it’s original position.

3.
Position the tray up to the walls and rebate into the plaster as required, refer
to section: ‘Installation, Rebating the Shower Tray’. Remove the tray from
its position.
4.
Make sure that the floor is clean, dry, firm and level. Coat the ribbed underside
of the tray with silicone sealant, a tiling cement or a weak mix of sand and
cement (5:1). Then press down into place ensuring the tray is positioned into
rebates.
Note! Where the tray comes into contact with the wall or plaster board surface,
apply a liberal amount of silicone sealant before installation. This will help secure
the tray in position and reduce any rubbing of the surfaces.

5.
Make sure that the tray is level.
Note! The bottom of the shower tray has a built in fall to allow for correct
drainage. Therefore check the edges of the tray with a spirit level (refer to
Figure 2).

6.
Connect the waste pipe.
7.Seal the joint between the shower tray and adjoining wall with silicone sealant
to provide a secondary seal.
8.The area is now ready for tiling.
9.
The 3 mm gap between the tiling and the shower tray must be filled with a
bead of silicone sealant, refer to section: ‘Installation, Rebating the Shower
Tray’.
12
Riser Installation
1.
Carefully remove all of the blue protective film from the tray for inspection.
Attention should then be paid to effectively cover the tray to protect from
damage.
2.Spots on the adjustable leg mouldings are provided to help set equal heights.
Set the adjustable legs to the third spot from the bottom, this will give the initial
clearance for the waste supplied.
Note! Do not adjust the legs above the fourth spot as this will be too high to
accommodate the riser panel.
3. Fit the adjustable legs into the holes on the back of the tray.
Note! A soft faced mallet can be used to aid installation.
4. Temporarily fit the waste outlet pipework and the trap to the tray. Adjust the
height of the feet to give the required clearance.
Note! The feet must be adjusted so that the shower tray does not rock.
5. Position the tray up to the walls and rebate the tray into the plaster (as required),
refer to section: ‘Installation, Rebating the Shower Tray’.
Note! Where the tray comes into contact with the wall or plaster board surface,
apply a liberal amount of silicone sealant before installation. This will help secure
the tray in position and reduce any rubbing of the surfaces.
6. Make sure that the tray is level.
Note! The bottom of the shower tray has a built in fall to allow for correct
drainage, therefore check the edges of the tray with a spirit level (refer to
Figure 2). If necessary adjust the height of the feet so that the tray is level in
all directions.
7. Once the tray is level - tighten the individual lock nuts on the leg sets and check
the tray is firm and secure.
8.Tighten the waste being careful not to overtighten. Make sure that the seal is in
place, additional beads of silicone sealant must be used (refer to Figure 1).
9. Connect the waste pipe.
10.Seal the joint between the shower tray and adjoining wall with silicone sealant
to provide a secondary seal.
11.The area is now ready for tiling.
12. The 3 mm gap between the tiling and the shower tray must be filled with a
bead of silicone sealant, refer to section: ‘Installation, Rebating the Shower
Tray’.

Maintenance
General
Providing the shower tray has been correctly installed in accordance with the
instructions contained in this guide, difficulties should not arise. If any maintenance
is required then it must be carried out by a competent tradesperson for whom the
maintenance instructions are provided.
Cleaning
It is advised that the shower tray is cleaned immediately after use, to remove any
insoluble products. Hot soapy water should be used and then the tray should be
wiped. Cleaners of gritty or abrasive nature should never be used.
The acrylic ABS surface of this shower tray has good resistance properties to acids
but should not come into contact with alkalis or organic solvents, such as caustic
soda, dry cleaning agents and paint strippers.
