Pros and Cons of Channel Drains

A Channel Drain is a great solution for adding a modern and sleek design to your tiled shower.  It is also a practical choice because it allows for easy cleaning and maintenance.  Our Channel Drain offers the option of both stainless-steel cover or a tile insert, which is simply achieved by reversing the channel insert. It is available in various sizes, however, if you require a specific size or waste position, we can custom make to suit!
