MAPEI has introduced two ShowerPerfect Installation Kits—one that uses a liquid membrane for waterproofing and one that uses a sheet membrane. These installation systems focus on tub-to-shower conversions in hotels, hospitals, university dormitories, condominiums and rental apartments where contractor production and end performance are critical.
“ShowerPerfect has two distinct benefits for installers,” said Brian Pistulka, MAPEI’s business manager for tile and stone installation systems. “Because shower tub compartments come in many sizes and shapes, the ShowerPerfect linear drain has been designed with extenders that allow the installer to fabricate a wall-to-wall strainer installation on site. Plus, the modular pre-sloped panel comes in three pieces—two panels and a shower support frame—that makes it easier to install than one-piece systems.”
According to Pistulka, the installation procedure is straightforward:
1. Install pre-sloped panels with Ultraflex RS mortar
2. Insert the linear drain ( hub-to-hub connection or no-hub connection)
3. Waterproof with (depending upon architect’s specification):
a. Sheet membrane, or
b. Liquid membrane
4. Ready to tile
Detailed CAD drawings and specifications describing the drain-to-waste-line connection are available in the ShowerPerfect reference guides for architects and installers.
ShowerPerfect Installation Kits are stocked at MAPEI operations facilities and will be available through selected MAPEI distributors who serve the commercial and residential builder renovation market.
