Shower solution: 6036 shower base from MTI Baths

The cover conceals an offset drain, which allows the base to replace an original narrower base or tub without the hassle of repositioning the drain plumbing in most cases.

MTI Baths introduced a shower base that aimed at making remodeling easier.

The new 6036 shower base appears to be a standard model with a drain that is hidden at first glance, until the drain cover is removed. The cover conceals an offset drain, which allows the base to replace an original narrower base or tub without the hassle of repositioning the drain plumbing in most cases. It’s a great solution for both residential and commercial projects, saving time, effort and creating a sleek, contemporary finished look.

Measuring 60 inches by 36 inches, the base is crafted from durable Lucite, a cross-linked cast acrylic made in the USA. It is enhanced by multiple layers of fiberglass, resin, titanium and wood to prevent flexing. Another option allows for factory-leveled bases supported by high-density foam for easy installation. The base includes an integral tile flange on three sides, a stainless steel or white powder coated hidden drain cover and can be specified with a left-or-right-side drain.
