Easton, PA, May 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Barrier-free showers are becoming very popular. This trend has been brought about, in part, by a design style shift to open or expand shower areas. However, a growing reason people seek trench drains is for making bathing quarters more accessible to the aging population. Conventional baths and showers can be too difficult or dangerous for those who are in wheel chairs or walkers. A shower with a trench drain across the entrance provides a nice way to keep water confined to the intended enclosure while also making pedestrian traffic barrier–free.
The shower drain selection one makes will depend on the type of floor one is building the shower into. For drains that are being put into traditional wooden joist floors, a flange is needed around the drain body for water-proofing and installation. These products tend to be made from stainless steel and are a little pricey. If the drain is being placed in a bed of concrete, more traditional drain bodies can be used.
