Bespoke and Made to Measure Shower Trays

Jul 14th 2014 at 10:36 PM

Shower trays create a waterproof base for your shower enclosure. They help maintain a watertight showering area within your bathroom, making cleanup and maintenance a lot easier. If you don't have the budget to build a separate wet room, a shower enclosure with a bespoke shower tray is the perfect and most cost-effective alternative.

Shower trays are quite easy to fabricate, making bespoke and made-to-measure requests easy to produce. Shower trays are already available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and finishes; but it’s possible to customise measurements and other specifications through manufacturers and suppliers that offer bespoke services, along with other bathroom fixtures, accessories, and products to complete your bathroom makeover. In the past, shower trays were made from a stone resin mixture, moulded and capped with acrylic or enamel. Today, more modern materials are used to create thinner, lighter, yet durable shower trays to suit all applications.

Shower trays can be found in all types of layouts; the most common of which are square, curved, rectangular, and pentagonal. They can be fabricated to fit into different types of shower enclosures. If you have an oddly shaped layout, opting for bespoke shower trays is most practical so you won't have to do any alterations to your structure.

Bespoke, made-to-measure shower trays are generally manufactured from different types of solid surface polymers. These materials are often a mixture of PMMA or polymethyl methacrylate, natural mineral aluminium hydroxide, and natural stone pigments. They are produced in sheets with varying thickness, colours, and finishes, including volcanic and stone finishes. True to their bespoke quality, these sheets can be heated and then vacuum formed over different types of moulds to form the desired shape. The resulting material is designed to be hardwearing and resistant to stains. They are impervious to water and can be cleaned uses most types of domestic cleaning chemicals. Bespoke shower trays made from this kind of solid surface material can be machined and drilled to accept fittings and to bond with other types of resins for seamless joining and polishing. Customised shower trays can also be designed to fit different types of plumbing, making it easy to integrate with new or existing shower enclosures and waste water pipework. They can hide plumbing effectively, leaving a neat-looking base for just about any type of shower enclosure. Cleaning and maintenance of bespoke shower trays is also very easy as these are made from solid surface materials that are very durable and resistant to stains, mould, and bacterial growth.
