The Burland Shower Tray

Installation

There is no danger of cracking or chipping the Burland Shower Tray, as there is with ceramic trays, which makes installation much less problematic. Due to its stainless steel construction the tray has integral robustness and can be handled without undue concern about causing it damage.

The tray can be installed to match the overall requirements of the room in which it is to be fitted. It can either be installed directly at floor level with under floor waste access, as in a wet room. Or it can be raised on its sub frame which facilitates waste pipes being directed at any angle from the tray. The sub frame can also be padded out to allow for higher fixing heights, although current building regulations for step heights should be adhered to.

An additional recommendation is to use DPC to cover joints in cement board in high risk areas such as the junction between walls, as per photograph.

Fitting diagram

A moisture and mould resistant cement board such as HardieBacker™ is recommended instead of plasterboard to form a base for tile application on walls and ceilings. Water resistant adhesive and grout should also be used when tiling.

HardieBacker™ or alternative cement board can be fitted either internally or externally to the shower tray as per the above diagram, to suit your requirements. Either way water damage caused by capillary action will be prevented by the tiling upstand.

The Burland Shower Tray can be provided with access on either one, two or three sides, one access side is the standard. The tray also comes with a step of sufficient size to facilitate the neat fixing of doors onto the step.

Note: This Shower Tray may require earth bonding.
