A Disappearing Act: Infinity Shower Drains

February 25, 2013

A solution for the shower drain dilemma: Infinity Drains that virtually disappear.

Infinity Drain recently introduced two drain systems that should be on the list for any bathroom remodel or shower upgrade. The TileDrain is a traditional center floor drain which incorporates your shower tile or solid surface flooring into the drain for a seamless look. If you don’t like a center drain, which requires pitching the floor in four directions, Infinity’s Linear Drain allows you to pitch your surface in one direction, perfect for open showers and showers without thresholds. The Linear Drain can be placed at the shower entrance, against the wall, or even under a bench (with two direction pitching) to catch water runoff.

N.B.: Infinity’s site-sizable linear drains can also be used for pool surrounds, patios, balconies, and driveways. Contact an Infinity Drain Dealer for more information.
