Designed to directly replace a bath tub when no longer practical, the TrueDEK Linear Tub Replacement base is precisely pre-sloped for accurate, fast drainage and benefits from a linear drain gulley which offers up to 3 drain connection points for showers that require higher flow volumes.
The base is made from lightweight yet incredibly strong compression molded glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GRP), ensuring superior support for wheelchair users and/or those needing assistance with showering, and is the perfect foundation for ceramic tile or natural stone.
Showers built on TrueDEK bases offer the timeless advantages of zero-entry access which is designed to be wheelchair and disability friendly, as well as easier to clean and safer to use for the whole family, for years to come.
