  • 840lbs max. capacity when installed on 16″ o.c. joist systems, enough to support a wheelchair user and carer
  • Waffle underside ensures rigidity while being lightweight (approx. 35lbs)

  • Can be cut down to size on all sides using standard power tools (within 6″ of drain)
  • Extend size of pitch to comply with ADA regulations using TruePITCH Extension panels
  • 6¼” drain hole diameter
  • Rotate off-center drain hole to avoid conflicts between drain and any sub-floor obstructions
  • 4 pre-sloped gradient planes direct water flow towards drain
  • 2% per foot or greater gradient (varies due to length of pitch)
  • 7/8″ thick around perimeter
  • 1¾” wide leveling rim around perimeter with pre-bored, countersunk pilot holes
  • Finish with tile or stone (between ¼”-1″ thick) or commercial-grade weldable vinyl flooring
  • For tile that is 2″ x 2″ or smaller, conform to the pitched contours of the base; for tile larger than 2″ x 2″, make valley cuts so the tile lays properly on all pre-pitched surfaces
