The use of ACO ShowerDrain channels in barrier-free showers offers some clear advantages. The shower channel can be adapted to suit any technical or aesthetic challenges which exist with a high-quality floor-level shower solution. The gradient to the gully body only needs to be created in one direction and a shaped thin bed flange can be used to create the necessary connection to the thin bed seal. A polished channel surface also improves drainage efficiency, reduces limescale deposits and ensures the channel is easy-to-clean.
Customised solutions for total design flexibility
Areas of a bathroom/shower application may have special architectural specifications and as a result, they require the use of customised channel solutions. With channel lengths of up to 2400 mm, shower channels can be adapted to suit individual application requirements.
Bespoke engineered solutions for multiple shower installations and unusual shower applications (such as those used in spa facilities) also offer superior drain performance thanks to the specification of additional gully bodies. The positions of the gully bodies can be tailored to suit each individual application.
ACO ShowerDrain solutions help make creative bathroom designs possible

In addition, ACO’s wide range of grating designs mean that covers for shower channels and bath gullies complement one another and the overall design of the bathroom or shower area in which they are being used.
ACO even offers a solution which assists with energy recovery. The ACO ShowerDrain X heat exchanging shower channel makes it easy to save energy in the shower. This innovatively designed channel uses the warm waste water from the shower to heat the cold fresh water before it goes down the drain.
