    Default No-Barrier Shower Base/Receptor/Stall

    Last post on same remodel was related to drain issues and potential for all tile wet room concept.

    After considering concrete excavation and time issues (never enough), I am now considering a receptor with very low (3/4" or so) lip (I don't want a "ramp," just an extended lip) ... problem is that I can't find many choices ... appears to be a specialty item with few manufacturers ...

    http://www.barrierfree.org has a few examples, but everything is pretty much ship to order - would appreciate info on manufacturers ...

    Thanks!

    Check with a cultured marble installer.

    Thanks, Jimbo ... the schematic shows a 7/8" lip, but it looks vertical and is designed to connect up to the ramp ... while this works, it looks to be an ad hoc way to solve the problem ... have seen at least one design with a complex angle approach for the lip that looks like it would keep water in pretty well ...

    Just found another supplier - American Reinformed Plastics - Tacoma ... Model# S-6034-BFP ... 1 1/2" lip from outside, but 3/4" of that would be eaten up by the adjoining tile work ...

    Check out the AKW line.

    Very low build up and with a little 1/2" cement board outside the shower you can build a barrier free shower.
