Resin shower trays can be installed flush to the floor or raised. Here are the steps on how to fit a resin shower tray, making the professionals’ work easier. 

How to fit a shower tray step by step

1. Carefully unpack the shower tray

Although this is an obvious step, it is important to mention that you should avoid any damage to the shower tray prior to installation handling it with care.

2. Position the drain

Mark the location of the drain on the surface where the shower tray will be installed

3. Aligns the drainage outlet

Make sure that the drainage outlet fits into the shower tray for a tight connection. If the position does not match, it may be necessary to make a splice with a PVC elbow.

4. Prepare the cement or mortar base of the shower tray

A smooth and level base of cement or mortar is the foundation for the correct placement of the shower tray and drainage outlet, and it ensures the shower tray is not deformed. The shower tray will have a 1.5cm difference in level with regard to the water outlet, avoiding any slope.

5. Fit the shower tray

Once the base is dry, apply polyurethane putty on the base and fit the shower tray. Seal any joints to prevent water leaks.

6. Make the connection to the drainage

Fit the valve ring and adjust it with screws or its thread.

7. Place the wall panels for a continuous and perfect finish

Complement the resin shower tray with our resin shower panels which allow to install a comprehensive, integrated shower solution. They can be installed on any surface, whether tile or wall.
