Purus, the leading Swedish manufacturer of drainage and plumbing products for wetrooms, has launched a new simple to install pre-formed base for wet-room showers known as The MAXXUS Wet-floor Former.
The MAXXUS Wet-floor Former is designed to facilitate level access showering on timber or concrete flooring in a variety of formats up to 1,500mm x 800mm. It has many benefits including a totally flat underside for easy installation which enables the drain to be simply rotated into the ideal position, and no release agent to inhibit bonding of adhesives for vinyl, tiles on its surface or for tanking or membranes.
The MAXXUS is designed to be used with the Purus Minimax, the worlds shallowest (70mm plus 6mm fall) wetroom drain incorporating a NOOD no-odour trap without a water seal. The MAXXUS wet-floor former has been tested under static load at 1,000mm centres and will comfortably support a sustained load of 470 kilos (75 stone) making it ideal for care homes and adaptations.
The plastic circular grate is standard for a vinyl-floor situation but can be upgraded to a circular stainless-steel grate which comes in a variety of designs; alternatively, a square grate in a variety of designs can be used with a tiled floor.
Purus also manufacture wet-room linear drains which are available in six different horizontal lengths, from 300mm to one metre, and eight different stylish designs with a corner drain using the same designs. All the drains in the range can remove up to 1.2 litres of water per second to meet most wet room requirements
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.
