Carved from solid natural stone
Our shower trays are low profile and carved from solid material; marble, limestone, quartz or granite. See the materials for example stones, but any can be requested. Basins and vanity tops can be made in the same stone allowing you to co-ordinate the whole of the room. Natural stone tiling and marble panels can be used to create a complete bathroom.
Contact us with a sketch or a rough idea of your needs, and we will help with advice and technical drawings. 3d presentations of the finished articles are also available.
Minimal bespoke shower trays manufactured to order. Obtain a wet-room look with a shower tray as little as 30mm thick. With options such as linear wastes and glass grooves, the shower trays are designed to your specification. Any size and shape can be requested.
Material – variants of marble, limestone, granite and quartz.
Every natural stone tray is unique and has an aesthetic that can’t be matched. Paired with same stone tiles or even contrasting with another material truly stunning rooms are attainable. See our examples, but anything within reason can be sourced.
Shapes – each tray is bespoke.
We are not limited to straight lines and rectangles. Introduce curves and odd shapes into your design and our CNC equipment will precisely cut to requirement.
Drain / Waste – Linear (stone or steel inlay) / round (slotted or petal decal) / square (stone or steel inlay)
Generally we use either a standard round waste or a linear type with stone insert for a minimal look. These can be positioned where needed to avoid obstructions or for preference. We have accommodated clients supplying there own wastes in the past should it be necessary.
Lead-in – a drying area or entrance.
This simply refers to a part of the tray designated for the user to stand before entering or exiting the showering area, its an un-machined flat area of stone.
Overall design – feather-edge or rebated.
A rebated or pocketed tray has a traditional sunken area where there is a wall or step to contain water whilst it drains. A feather-edge tray has no such step down, instead the fall to waste begins at the perimeter, the result is an extremely flat minimal look as in a wet-room.
Glass grooves – for screens.
These are machined grooves in the edge of the stone to accommodate glass screening, instead of using U-channel.
Border thickness – Increased perimeter thickness.
Typically the tiling sits on the trays border, so should a consistent looking border be maintained it is possible to increase the width of the edges adjacent to walls.
Frame-less, UV bonded and other glass enclosures – we recommend low iron, optically clear glass.
There are a dizzying array of permutations and configurations of glass enclosure. From single screens, hinged doors and sliding panels, its all possible. Hinged doors, 45^/90^/180^ brackets. Single screens / curved cuts and notches.
UV bonding does away with any mechanical fixing between the glass to produce the most minimal look possible.
We can accommodate any enclosure.
Delivery / Pickup
Smaller trays come packaged and delivered on a pallet, larger ones are fixed to an A-frame and use dedicated transport. Pickups are welcome from our factory in Warwick upon appointment.
We seal our shower trays at the factory. It is recommended to re-seal periodically (dependent on use and cleaning chemicals) when the tray is completely clean and dry. It is a simple procedure which is detailed on the product.
Generally 2000 x 1000 x 30mm is the limit in natural materials and up to 3000 x 1400 x 30mm in composite stone. Different approaches are governed by the material choice.
Fitting your tray
The tray must be fully bedded on a flexible adhesive onto a solid surface. It must be levelled accurately.
