Q:
A:

A traditional center drain requires your wet (shower) area to be sloped in 4 directions, typically referred to as a 4-way slope, and requires a curb. This limits tile size choice to small sized tiles which in turn requires many grout lines which are hard to clean and are not waterproof.

A linear/channel drain gives you the ability to pitch your floor in one direction opening up design possibilities and time savings. You can use large format tiles, limiting the amount of grout lines. Have the option to do a curbless entrance for easy entry and ADA compliance. With 4 unique grate top options to choose you can match any design style.
 
BENEFITS:
Slope in 1 direction
No limitation on tile size or slab material
Can be placed as threshold or curb
Meets ADA requirements for handicap shower entry
No boundaries on design because of drain location
Outlet can be located anywhere on channel length
Drains water more efficiently

 

Q:
A:

A basin waste is a fitting that attaches to the outlet of a wash basin and allows for the outlet to be closed to keep water in the basin and opened to drain it. Basin waste fittings range in complexity from simple variants which are opened and closed by a loose plug to sophisticated, pop-up models. All types may be fitted with integral ports or slots allowing for use in basins with or without overflows.

Basin waste fittings are the parts of any wash basin which allow water to be trapped for use and released to drain out. They also serve as a connection point for the waste trap and waste water pipe system. These fittings are connected at the bottom of the basin and are typically flush with the inside surface with a protruding, threaded stub on the outside of the basin to connect the waste water pipe system. A basin waste is basically a hollow tube with a shoulder machined into the end which is located inside the basin. This shoulder allows a removable plug or pop-up mechanism to seat snugly forming a water tight seal.

A pop up waste is a term used to describe the drain plug in the bottom of a tub or lavatory that is opened and closed by a lift rod, trip lever or cable. It is used to handle clogs and blockages in the drainage system or restrict flow.
 

Q:
A:

The bottle trap is an essential element of the basins plumbing that keeps the bathroom hygienic and clean. When we use the basin, the used water goes through the basin waste, into the drainage pipe and then into the sewer. Lot of other waste and dirt is accumulated in this sewer and naturally the accumulation causes a lot of harmful gases. These gases need an outlet and that, they get through our drainage pipes, through the wastes and back into our bathrooms. Ewww!! Sounds bad!! Isn’t it?


Here is where and why you require those basin bottle traps. The bottle trap prevents these gases to enter the bathrooms, thus helping maintain hygiene in the bathroom and keeping it safe for us.
 

Q:
A:

The bottle trap is a kind of a deep vessel which has a bigger diameter than the plumbing pipe. The plumbing pipe that comes from the basin goes straight into the bottle trap.

When more water gushes in the water inside the bottle trap goes into the drain and fills with the new water that comes from the waste. Thus the trap always remains filled with a certain amount of water and the pipe from the basin remains immersed into this water inside the bottle trap.

Now when the sewer gases re enter the system through the outlet pipes they reach the bottle trap, but here they find their way sealed with the water that is collected in the trap. Due to the basin pipe immersed in water it remains closed and doesn’t allow the return waste and gases to enter it and pave their way upwards into and out of the basin right into the bathroom.

Having the basic mechanism in place there are various sizes, shapes and finishes available in the bottle trap designs. choosing the most appropriate design according to the finish and design of the other bathroom fittings makes it look well in place and in sync with the bathroom interiors.

SANIPRO offers a wide variety of bottle traps for the basin in the very original and traditional designs to the designs that can fit into a minimalistic, modern and many such different type of bathroom interiors.

 

Q:
A:

Linear drains have standard lengths of 300mm,400mm,500mm,600mm,700mm,800mm,900mm,1000mm or
12”,26", 30", 32”,36", 40",44” 48",54” and 60".

Q:
A:

We can custom make channel drains to any length and can inculde multiple outlets along the stretch of the lower channel. By special request we can fabricate L shaped or angled drains

Q:
A:

It provides a capacity of approximately 28-30 litersper second which is sufficient to deal with most shower heads. If a higher flow rate is required, multiple units or custom channels are available.

Q:
A:

Both the channel body and grate are made from Grade 304 austenitic stainless steel.
 
Unlike some stainless steels, austenitic stainless steels are non-magnetic and therefore do not attract magnetic particles which can encourage bacterial growth and corrosion.

Q:
A:

There are 4 main choices that are mainly a visual preference or may be determined by the position of the plumbing.
 
Against the wall – this allows for the floor to slope gently towards the wall and actually slightly increases the flow capacity as a small head of water can be created.
At the threshold – as the floor will slope towards the threshold a smaller slope is necessary.
In the center – often used if existing plumbing cannot be moved. Floor each side slopes towards the drain.
A fourth option is where multiple units are used either as the shower is a walk through design with one unit at the entrance and exit or if a higher capacity is needed whereby units are positioned against each side wall.

Q:
A:


Shower, bathroom floor, Kitchen,patio, pool perimeter, Balcony,garage door threshold, etc... Applications are only limited by your imagination. Typical shower installation is opposite the entry to the shower.

 

Q:
A:

Standard household cleaners or soap is all that is required. A soft cloth can be used to dry and buff the surface.
 
 NEVER use iron/steel wool as this will damage the grate finish.

Q:
A:

● Stainless steel does not rust or fade away. Although the surface may become dull, it does not become discolored and homeowners simply need to polish the surface to get it to shine again.

● Stainless steel doesn’t have any reaction to food or water. Water that passes through the faucet will be able to retain its flavor and not pass anything onto the food or items washed in the process. This makes it a good choice for kitchens, restaurants and places where food is routinely cooked.

● Stainless steel is a good choice for families with little children or pets. The steel is resistant to germs,ensuring that there is no spread of irritants in the home. Steel is also a non-porous material which means that a simple wipe of a disinfectant will leave it clean of both dirt and germs.

● The material has a very long life span and can last for a decade when properly maintained.
