Purus, the leading Swedish manufacturer of drainage and plumbing products for wetrooms, has launched a simple to install pre-formed tileable or vinyl-covered base for wet-room showers to complement its range of linear wet-room drains.
The new base has been specially developed for Purus by Pro4ma UK Limited, a specialist designer and manufacturer of wet-room solutions.
The base, known as the Purus Centre Linear Kit, has been designed to provide a waterproof and easy to install wet-room base with a gradient which ensures water will not overflow into the wet room.
The base is designed to be fitted with a waterproof membrane and comes with easy installation instructions, ensuring that fitting a wet-room floor and drain has never been easier.
Purus wet-room drains are available in a variety of horizontal, circular and square formats to meet most wet room requirements. The surface strainer comes in eight different horizontal lengths, from 300mm to one metre, and eight different stylish designs. All the drains in the range can remove up to 1.2 litres of water per second.
The company is the only manufacturer to offer a tiled drainage trap which provides an uninterrupted tile design across the wet-room floor in the customers preferred tiling design. In addition, the drains are available with stylish stainless steel strainers.
Purus floor drains have been designed to meet the exacting requirements for design, functionality and safety and comply with the British Board of Agrément standards.
Peter Bradbourne, Managing Director, Purus UK, says: The new wet-room base combined with the range of Purus Line drains provides plumbers with a complete wetroom drainage package of the highest quality. Initial feedback from wholesalers and plumbers has been very positive.
Trends in bathrooms have seen more people installing wet-rooms as a contemporary stylish feature. It is estimated that in 2007 there were 165,000 wet rooms installed in the UK and this figure is on the rise due to the increasingly popular trend toward wet rooms.
