Creating a Watertight Shower Drain

Allproof Industries have developed a wide range of products, providing high-quality NZ made drainage systems that perfectly integrate with waterproofing systems. These drainage products have been developed by Allproof’s in-house design and development team to provide the correct capacity, improved install process, maintenance and combine with other products in the Allproof catalogue and on the market. These features ensure excellent protection from leaks and high drainage performance.

The most popular drainage and waterproofing system is Allproof’s Vision Shower Channel Series. This product works much like a point drain, but can be set up as a threshold channel or flush against a wall. This product provides a highly sought after aesthetic finish with off-the-shelf sizes and custom made lengths available, all with a choice of five grates.

The system utilises a specially designed VF80 flange that is recessed flush into the base of a channel created on site. The waterproofing membrane is then dressed into the recess and onto the flange, completely tanking the wet area.

The flange has been designed to provide a high-quality surface for bonding the waterproof membrane and ensures that all subsurface moisture collected by the waterproof membrane is directed into the outlet. The stainless steel channel is set into the recess, levelled and secured using a porous compound before being tiled up against with a bead of silicon applied between the tile and channel edge.

This system is widely used across New Zealand with large projects such as 30 Madden Street in Wynyard Quarter using Allproof Vision Channels in the large majority of its apartments.
