Laticrete has launched a series of 77 Hydro Ban Linear Drain grates and troughs in a variety of sizes and finishes. Laticrete also now offers its distributors the troughs and grates as separate purchases. Previously, these products were required to be packaged together.

“Rolling out so many products at once was an incredible feat and the end result is a great benefit for our customers," said Spencer Maheu, Laticrete director of product management. "Because of the ordering and logistics improvements, distributors will now also have an easier time storing and selling the grates and troughs, which streamlines their businesses. We have every option available that anyone could ever need for a complete shower system that is not only high-performing but also aesthetically pleasing.”

Key products include a standard linear drain trough with a V-Bottom in stainless steel for use in commercial applications that require a higher-strength flange, an improved Oil Rubbed Bronze coating to reduce chipping, and new linear drain grate designs including Offset Oval, Tile-In and Wedge Wire available in a variety of finishes. All of the products can be used with Laticrete mortar beds and pre-sloped shower pans, and are compatible with the company’s full line of products for a complete shower, tile or stone installation.

All linear drain grates will be available in 6-in. increments from 24- to 60-in. (61 to 152 centimeters), as well as a special 32-in. (81-centimeter) format. The HYDRO BAN Linear Drain grates and troughs are also available in custom sizes upon request.
