Originally intended for unimpeded access for wheelchair users in facilities like hospitals and hotels, the curbless shower trend has grown due to its unique and appealing design aesthetic. Photo: Laticrete.
As other methods of waterproofing are becoming more prevalent and accepted by professionals in the field, prefabricated waterproofing solutions such as sheet membranes or wallboards have been newly engineered to provide ready-to-tile solutions with effective waterproofing built in.

Laticrete recently launched Hydro Ban Quick Cure, a liquid-applied, ready-to-use waterproofing membrane, and Quick Cure Mortar Bed, a pre-mixed, polymer-fortified thick bed mortar. While other systems on the market may require up to four days to install a shower system, using Hydro Ban Quick Cure and Quick Cure Mortar Bed in conjunction allows tiling to begin within hours of installation.

To accommodate virtually any shower installation, Laticrete also launched a series of new and improved grates and troughs in a variety of sizes and finishes, with custom sizes available upon request. The new options are part of the Hydro Ban preformed shower system that includes an expansive line of pre-sloped and linear shower pans, niches, seats and benches, all made with a high-density polystyrene core.
