Impey Showers has developed the Aqua-Grade floor former, an alternative to creating gradients for new-pour solid floors.
It comprises a plastic matrix of modular sections, which click together and are then filled with screed to the correct gradient. The Aqua-Grade design is available in standard sizes, or bespoke options can be provided. It is suitable for tiled and vinyl floors if the appropriate drainage is selected. The company says it can also be used for other applications where a precise drainage gradient needs to be formed, such as the perimeters of swimming pools.
