Barrier free shower
2009 award: Best technical product application in Canada
Our expertise was first recognized outside of our local market, in 2009 when we jointly won with Schluter-Systems our first industry award for the best technical product application in Canada. This recognition was awarded to us by the Title Terrazzo Marble Association of Canada (TTMAC) for the specification of the surface preparation, waterproofing, choice of installation system, and our craftsmanship in the renovation of this Italian style bathroom. This project features a doorless and custom barrier free shower with a raised mosaic floor. The rest of the tilling is composed of large size 24×24” porcelain tiles on the bathroom floor and 4×24” tile strips on the two shower walls, all of which was grouted with Mapei‘s epoxy grout. As for the substrate, it incorporates a radiant heating system protected by a combination of an uncoupling and waterproofing membranes.
