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.

I lost the screws for my drain for tile. What sizes do I need?

All the screws that come with the drain for tile are stainless steel, and they are metric sizes and thread counts. These are available at many well-stocked hardware stores in their specialty fastener section (often you'll find an aisle with pull-out drawers, and inside the drawers are all kinds of unique fasteners). Here is the screw information:

1. For the four screws that fasten the adaptor to the foundation, you really can use flat head screws that fit, and they don't have to be metric. We recommend #6 or #8 x 3/4" long, flathead, wood threaded style screws in stainless steel or ceramic coated. Always drill pilot holes before driving these screws.

2. To secure the clamping ring, you'll need M4 x 0.7 x 16mm long stainless steel screws. These have to be metric and the proper size and threading to fit the threaded holes in the adaptor.
