For Immediate Release: Tile Redi®, the world-leading manufacturer and marketer of leak-proof, tile-able one-piece shower pans and related products, acknowledges that most people prefer to shower in an space dedicated to be an actual shower rather than in a bathtub. Especially hotel guests. As a result, “Bathtub Replacement™… Go Tubless!™” shower pans have been created to fit the footprint of the bathtub removed and replaced with a shower - via a process that is easy and painless. Tile Ready® brand Bathtub Replacement™ shower pans come in over 20 linear trench drain models, multiple Wonder Drain® models, and over 60 standard models with a variety of sizes and drain locations. Because every bathroom design is different, a variety of entrances are offered including: Single Curb, Double Curb, Triple Curb and Barrier Free
Before Tile Redi®, when hotel owners wanted to remove bathtubs and replace them with tile, marble, or stone showers, there were only a few choices: manually construct a shower base and deal with the inevitable leaks; use an acrylic or cultured marble shower pan offering less appealing design, or use a multi-piece “jigsaw puzzle” system that required plumbers or highly skilled DIY-ers… and, lots of time to properly install. Tile Redi® shower pans allow the upscale look of a tiled shower that perfectly matches or complements any guest bathroom tile design with the only one-piece, Ready-to-Tile™ Bathtub Replacement™ shower base on the market. These products are leak-proof, easy to install and surprisingly affordable.
According to Farrell Gerber, Tile Redi’s Executive Vice President of Sales, “Our research has indicated that the only tubs actually used today at hotels, for the most part, are in ultra-luxury properties which have a separate whirlpool tub in the guest bath in addition to a separate shower area. Older hotels’ owners are concerned about guests tripping over bathtub ‘walls” when entering or stepping out of them… and sustaining injuries which could result in costly and annoying legal problems. Our Tile Redi “Bathtub Replacement™… Go Tubless!™” products provide a beautiful solution. Ease of installation. Cost-efficiency. Being leak-proof. And, offering a huge degree of added safety to every guest bath environment.”
Tile Ready® brand products are not just about function – they also are about design. Redi Trench® Bathtub Replacement™… Go Tubless™ shower pan is a designer product featuring an integrated linear trench and choice of either tile-able linear drain top or designer linear grate top. “We have sizes, shapes and product combinations for any size bathtub replacement, anywhere in the world,” concluded Gerber. “We want today’s guest bathroom renovations to not only be a visual upgrade, but also, an upgrade in comfort and safety.”
