From Bathrooms

While the linear feature has been around a little while within the institutional and industrial applications, it is fast becoming a trend in residential and commercial spaces.

Linear drains generally take less than half the time to install than centre waste and require minimal tile cutting due to the single slope towards the drain. Thus resulting in the seamless integration between the drain and the continuation of the flooring. No need to move the existing plumbing as you can create the waste outlet anywhere along the bottom tray to line it up.

Frequently asked Q&As

Are there any tile restrictions when it comes to using linear grates?

Designers and renovators love using linear drains. There are no limitations to the size of tile or slab material used and eliminates the need for additional cuts to tiles. The same floor tile can be used in the bathroom as well as the shower recess so the surface is uninterrupted by visual distraction. Tile inserts are one of the most popular options.

Are linear grates easy to keep clean?

Absolutely. Linear grates are easy to clean and can easily be cleaned with water and soap. Our easy roll out feature on all tile inserts enables consumers to easily clean. Simply roll out and roll back in.

Can we create a "barrier free" entrance with linear grates?

Yes. Using linear drains removes the ‘step over the curb’ in a traditional shower, creating a “barrier free” entrance to your shower. This provides an easy transition point from the dry area to the wet area.

Is there a specific area of the shower I should install the grate?

Linear drains are easy to install and can be customised to any desired length on site. They do however require the shower floor to be sloped in only one direction toward the drain, unlike the centre drain, which requires the floor to slope in four different ways.
