Matrix shower trays are manufactured using only the highest quality materials. Constructed of a vacuum formed "ABS Acrylic Capped" skin and reinforced with stone resin creates a shower tray of exceptional strength and durability.
All matrix standard shower trays include a easy clean shower trap
Acrylic Capped ABS
Acrylic Capped ABS Shower Trays consist of a thin top layer of acrylic bonded to a thick layer of ABS. This sheet is then reinforced with stone resin.
This type of shower tray offers a number of advantages over other types such as gel-coat. Primarily, the acrylic makes for a shiny and hard protective surface. This layer is also made from the same material that most bathtubs are made from which means the shower tray colour will match that of the bathtub.
The ABS layer provides a robust material which dramatically increases the shower trays strength to prevent cracking and chipping.
The shower tray is then backed with stone resin to provide general robustness and sturdiness.
Due to the combination of these materials, acrylic capped ABS shower trays are generally much more reliable and a higher quality of shower tray.
Most Matrix shower trays are available with integrated upstands. Upstands are used to create a water tight seal between the tray and installation wall.
Once the shower tray has been fitted into the wall, render and tiles can then be fitted over the upstand preventing any chance of leakage.
