Description of the material

Tycroc shower base is a high-quality alternative to traditional tiling, which is made of prefabricated Tycroc waterproof building boards embedded with integral drainage to create level-access tiled shower areas. This system is supplied ready to install, which reduces the working time while offering a perfect substrate for plastering mosaic, natural stone or ceramics.

Characteristics and advantages

The complete Tycroc waterproofing system should definitely include the shower base.

Floor heating cables can be placed right on top of Tycroc products.

Place of use

Tycroc shower bases are a specifically developed solution for covering the base of shower corners and cabins. Tycroc shower bases and drainages can be used also in other places, i.e. in steam saunas. There is no need to make a separate slope in the floor, the Tycroc shower bases can be installed onto every surface, and the only essential thing is the right location for drainage.
