Check the pack and make sure all the components are included. When you are ready to start make sure you have all the right tools to hand, plenty
of space and a clean dry area for building. Don’t rush, read the instructions first and run through the assembly sequence before you begin.
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
Please read these instructions carefully. If in doubt please contact a qualified plumber. Failure to adhere to these
instructions will invalidate the manufacturer’s guarantee and no responsibility will be accepted for any loss or damage.
This does not affect your statutory rights.
Please inspect this product immediately for damage, size and colour. Do not install if not satisfied, as no claims for
consequential damage will be accepted.
We recommend that 2 persons install the tray. It must be considered a 2 manlift at all times.
Ensure that the tray top surface is compatible with the intended shower enclosure taking into account loss of
dimension from the tiles. This is particularly if you have elected to recess the edge of the tray into adjacent walls.
Do not use putty, mastic or solvent based sealers in direct contact with this product. Use of these will damage
the tray and render the manufacturer’s guarantee invalid.
We strongly recommend the use of a fast flow waste with this product.
Suspended floor installation
1
If the tray is to be installed onto a suspended floor,
the total area of the tray (or bigger) must be removed
and replaced with a single piece of birch ply or similar
(min 18mm thick). If using a tray with a tiling upstand
allowance must be made for recessing the tray into the
adjoining walls to allow tiling onto the surface of the tray.
N.B. On concrete floors the ply is not required. A trench
for the trap and waste pipe will be required which gives
sufficient access for connecting the plumbing once the
tray is installed.

3
Mix a stiff 5/1 mixture of sand and cement mortar
prepared to manufacturers specification, with an anticrumbling additive.
Spread it over the area evenly where the base of the tray
will sit. Do not allow the mix to block the drilled waste
hole in the ply.
Level to sufficient thickness to allow levelling and full
support to the tray base and sides.
4
Prior to fitting the tray, please check that it drains
correctly.
Level the tray around the rim, place a bowl under the
tray, pour in water.
As the tray skin is slip resistant, large droplets of water
will remain but large pools should not be evident.
Fit the waste to the tray (as per manufacturer’s
recommendation) and position the tray on the ply and
cement/sand mix. Be careful not to obstruct the waste
under the tray as this may cause leakage. Ensure the
tray is positioned against both walls. Ensure the tray
is level using a spirit level. Connect the waste pipe to
the waste and water test the connections for leaks and
tray water retention. Allow the cement/sand mix to set
before commencing an further.
No claims can be made for faulty trays once the
item has been installed. Please Check your tray
before installation.

Once the mortar mix is set, apply a secondary silicone seal between the tray and wall. Tile
down onto the tray on each wall using suitable
waterproof adhesive then grout the tiles using
anti-fungal grout.

Make sure that all surfaces are clean, dry and dust
free, then generously seal the joint between the tray
and tiles and tray to floor with an anti-fungal silicone
sealant. Ensure the silicone and grout is set before
fitting the enclosure. We strongly recommend leaving
for at least 48 hours.
Solid floor installation
2
1
A wooden plinth to suit the base of the tray needs
to be constructed. Allow adequate space below
the plinth for the waste. Cut and fit an 18mm
marine ply board to fit the plinth. Position the tray
on the plinth and mark through the waste hole of
the tray using a pencil.
Cut a hole in the ply at an appropriate size using
a drill and hole cutter to suit the waste. The hole
should be sufficient to allow the waste unit to
tighten onto the base of the tray and not the ply.

Prior to fitting the tray, please check that it
drains correctly.
Mix a stiff 5/1 mixture of sand and cement mortar

We recommend that you tile the plinth using the same
method as used for the wall tiling. Make sure that all surfaces are clean, dry and dust free, then generously seal
the joint between the tray and tiles (refer to step 5 image
for more detail), tray to plinth and plinth to floor with an
anti-fungal silicone sealant. Allow the silicone and grout
to set before fitting the enclosure.
We strongly recommend leaving for at least 48 hours.
IMPORTANT
A complete watertight seal is essential, the floor and
or the marine ply support could be damaged if water
penetrates through.
Raised Tray Installation Instructions
2
1
Fix the legs and panel clips (1 per leg except
on rectangular/square tray corners where 2 are
needed) to the base of the tray by screwing the
leg through the clip(s) and into the brass inserts
which are installed into the base of the tray as
standard, to give an evenly supported structure.
3
Level the tray around the rim, place a bowl
under the tray, pour in water.
Adjust the height of the legs to ensure that
the cover panel(s) will fit and that the shower
tray is level.
As the tray skin is slip resistant, large droplets
of water will remain but large pools should not
be evident.
Fit the waste to the tray(as per manufacturers
recommendation). We recommend the use of a
fast flow waste with this tray.
Be careful not to obstruct the waste hole under
the tray as this may cause leakage. Ensure the
tray is positioned against both walls. Ensure
the tray is level using a spirit level. Connect
the waste pipe to the waste and water test the
connections for leaks and tray water retention.
Once you are happy with the installation position, fasten the legs to the floor with suitable screws (not included).
Use the wall bracket fixings provided to secure the tray to the wall(s).
4
Push the cover panel(s) into place using the panel clips
under the lip of the tray to secure.

Once in position, apply a
secondary silicone seal
between the tray and the
wall. Tile down onto the tray
on each wall using suitable
waterproof adhesive then
grout the tiles using antifungal grout. Then silicone
around the areas where the
tray meets the tiled wall.

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS
A After use the tray must be washed out with soap and water or a cleaner that is recommended for use with plastics, a soft
bristle brush may be used for crevices, finish off by drying with a soft clean cloth.
B Under no circumstances should harsh detergents, scouring powders, bleaches or solvent based products be allowed to
come into contact with the surface of the tray.
C If after use the shower tray is not cleaned as recommended minerals present in some water supplies may stain the shower
tray. This staining is cosmetic only and should not affect the performance of the shower tray.
D Prolonged contact with oil based products can, in some cases cause stress cracking of the shower tray surface, cleaning
the shower tray as detailed in aftercare instructions part A will reduce the risk but not alleviate it.
E If the shower tray is to be used in conjunction with a water softener, it is recommended that the advice of the relevant water
authority is sought, requesting information on the possibility of the treated water leaching sediment from existing pipe work,
which in turn can leave deposits on the surface of the shower tray.
