Linear Drains Can Help Improve Shower Designs

Linear shower drains have become increasingly popular for a number of reasons. Perhaps most important is that linear drains require a single slope so large format tiles can be used. That gives designers tremendous design flexibility and the ability to create popular, contemporary shower designs. These drains are ideal for barrier free and ADA showers.

Linear drains are common in Europe but differences in plumbing make adapting foreign models difficult. Noble Company’s new FreeStyle Linear Drains™ were designed for showers in North America. The drain has unique features that make installation easy and ensure a watertight assembly. The FreeStyle Linear Drain is made from a single piece of PVC or ABS so there are no seams or welds. It is the only linear drain with a clamping collar which ensures a watertight connection between the membrane and the drain. FreeStyle drains can be located at the wall, exit or where it best fits the design.

Waterproofing is easy to do with NobleSeal®TS. Bond TS to the sloped mortar and clamp it into the drain. This provides a dependable, watertight installation and a low profile.

FreeStyle is great for new construction or renovations in hospitality, health care, or residential applications. It is listed by national plumbing codes. FreeStyle Linear Drains are available in six lengths and four brushed stainless strainer styles. Visit www.noblecompany.com to see more on this latest innovation in shower waterproofing..
