Infinity Drain products are engineered to work with all waterproofing methods including liquid applied membrane, PVC liner, hot mop, copper pan and fabric sheet membrane. The choice of waterproofing method for shower installations is often determined by regional preferences, and by the installer. No matter which waterproofing method is used, the resulting decorative drain will be both beautiful and functional for the life of the shower.
Traditional vs. Modern Waterproofing Methods
Knowing which waterproofing technique the installer will use helps determine which linear or center drain series to select for your project. When traditional waterproofing techniques are employed, professionals typically construct a shower pan with materials like PVC, vinyl, lead, hot mop, copper, or fiberglass. Infinity Drain’s Site Sizable® [S] and Fixed Length [FX] linear drains as well as our 4” and 5” center drains are offered with drain bodies to make them compatible with traditional waterproofing methods.
On the other hand, if modern waterproofing methods, such as liquid membrane or fabric sheet, are utilized, professionals can more easily waterproof over a greater floor area to build a barrier-free or zero-threshold installations. Modern waterproofing installations not only expedite the process, saving time, but also enhance the long-term efficacy. For this type of waterproofing, Infinity Drain offers a variety of linear drain design options with flanged channels including the [FF], [FCS], and [FT] Series. Their 4” and 5” center drains can be purchased with bonded flanges, or in the case of the 4” patterns, a UCR2 adaptor is also available, to be compatible with modern waterproofiing methods.
