Features of shower drains
In modern designs of shower cabins, shower trays are used less and less often, and the shower itself is installed at floor level. But this type of shower needs a specific device and the floor itself and in the presence of a special drain - a shower drain.
Sink trick is designed to ensure that water is drained from the shower directly into the sewer system. For this, it is installed directly on the floor. Such a design can be located both on the entire surface of the floor, and in one place. Possible option and point installation of the ladder. Such devices are widely used in the food industry. On the website http://www.inoxpark.com.ua/rus/catalog/stainless_steel_traps/trap_vert/ you will be offered various types of ladders with vertical release of stainless steel for the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries.
So that the water falls into the ladder, and does not spread over the surface - the floor in the shower room is made under a slight slope. Ladders are made of several materials:
Stainless steel ladders.
Sometimes there is a combination of stainless steel and plastic.
Any type of flooring in the shower is not an obstacle to the installation of the ladder.
Ladder models differ in the type of odor retention:
Gangway with trap. In such a ladder a water blockage is created that keeps odors from the drains. But if the shower stall is used less than once every 1-2 weeks, then the water block will simply dry out and the smell of the sewage system will begin to leak out.
Ladder with a dry shutter. This is a combined ladder. It combines both a water plug, which does not allow the smell to leak, and a dry closure, which prevents evaporation of the plug itself.
There is also a gradation of traps by the type of installation and installation of sewage.
Vertical gangway. Sewerage in this case is derived directly from the floor. Here the advantage has such a detail of the ladder as a siphon. It improves the water permeability and the water does not accumulate on the floor of the shower stall. It is difficult to use such a ladder in the apartment.
Horizontal ladder. Such a model of a ladder, on the contrary, is suitable for use in an apartment, since the drain is connected to the sewer pipes by means of a lateral supply.
Shower drains are easy to install and subsequent operation.In addition, the replacement of the shower tray with such a ladder will greatly simplify the lives of those who installed it in their bathroom. And also adds the most bathing style and elegance.
