DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 19, 2019--WallDrain from QuickDrain USA brings truly unique innovation to the modern bathroom shower. This radically different concept in shower drains features an elegant linear design, but with no decorative metal components. Instead, water gracefully exits via the downward slope of the shower pan into a drain channel concealed behind the base of the wall — rendering WallDrain virtually invisible. Nearly any solid surface tile can be installed in the drain’s magnetic vertical cover before it is attached to the shower wall, resulting in a seamless and fully integrated design.

But this cutting-edge design does not come at the expense of function or flexibility. WallDrain is a total shower solution:

The transitional styling of WallDrain lends itself to both traditional and contemporary bath décors. Applications encompass both residential and commercial spaces; e.g., hospitality (hotels, resorts, casinos), athletic and health clubs, custom home master baths, and luxury apartment and condominium baths.

Key Specifications: WallDrain features a 316L marine grade stainless steel drain body. Three standard sizes are available: 48 inches, 72 inches and 96 inches. Onsite adjustability permits shower lengths of 26 to 72 inches with a single drain; 56 to 96 inches with two drains linked together. Each size is available with a standard vertical drain waste outlet, or with a side waste outlet configuration.

WallDrain is ADA-approved, meets all Uniform Plumbing Code and International Plumbing Code standards, and meets or exceeds ASME A112.18.2-2005. List prices start at $1,500.

Complements Curbless Showers: QuickDrain National Showroom Manager, Darryl Jones, notes that the look and function of WallDrain provides an excellent fit with curbless showers, whose popularity continues to grow.

“WallDrain is a perfect addition to increasingly popular curbless shower designs,” says Jones. “The product is easy to work with and quick to install. In addition, the single-direction slope permits the use of larger tiles, which are aesthetically pleasing and reduce grout lines for easier cleaning.”

Purchasing WallDrain involves a three-step ordering process
