Before ordering the tray we would always send a sample of the texture, so you can touch and feel it yourself. You can also opt out of the anti slip finish, however for safety purposes we would always advise against it.
Is it suitable for a Wetroom style shower?
Yes, Versital shower trays are ideal used instead of a wet room system, or wet room style shower. They do not require tanking and arrive ready to install, cutting down dramatically on installation time and costs. We work closely with the designers at Langley Interiors who use our shower trays in many of their bathroom projects. Our trays have also been featured in luxury hotels like the Andaz London.

A made to measure shower tray is often the most cost effective and easy way to fix these issues. You can order it precisely to the shape of your wet room, making it an easy solution to most common problems like leakages.

Yes, you can specify the waste position. The normal size we would recommend is a 90mm waste aperture as this is the British standard, but we can manufacture to your preferred requirements.
If you already have a waste set that you would like the tray manufactured to we would normally ask you to send it over so we can engineer the tray precisely to fit your preferred system. Otherwise we offer a top of the range DALLMER waste set that suits most standard British pipework.
