Description

Designed to make installation as painless as possible, the unique rotating drain plate enables you to easily change the drain position to avoid joists or sub-floor obstructions. Each 45° turn of the octagonal plate moves the center of the drain, helping you achieve up to 15* different positions.

Tuff Form8 bases share all the same structural properties of Tuff Form Shower Base lines; they’re made from lightweight yet incredibly strong compression molded glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) which offers superior support for wheelchair users and/or those needing assistance with showering, and are the ideal foundation for ceramic tile, natural stone, or weldable vinyl flooring.

All Tuff Form shower bases offer the timeless advantages of zero-entry access which is designed to be wheelchair and disability friendly, as well as easier to clean and safer to use for the whole family, for years to come.
