A teak grid is 25mm thick and we supply them with adjustable feet to ensure they remain level, or small rubber nubbins to protect the shower base, the rubbers on the feet add a further 5mm to the depth. Many of the grids and trays we make are bespoke in size and so we like to know where the waste of the shower is to be situated, then we can ensure the feet are placed so that they do not interfere with the waste.
With a shower grid the interior of the tray needs to be square and not have rounded edges, if rounded edges are required we would recommend having teak duck board instead which we are happy to supply, along with a tray if required in teak.
The lacquer we finish our products with has incredible adhesion and can be used in a variety of situations, you can be sure that there will be no lifting of the lacquer in any wet room environment in the future. We have used the same lacquer for many, many years on our teak tiles which are used in steam rooms and saunas proving the lacquers stability in hot, wet environments.
A shower grid can be purchased separately from a shower tray and can be made bespoke to fit your project. If the grids are very large we recommend that that they are made in smaller sizes to fit the tray, making them easier to lift for cleaning and access.
A standard shower tray of 600mm x 600mm x 90mm deep for use with under floor wastes is £890.
A standard shower tray 600mm x 600mm x 171mm deep for use where the waste is above the floor level is £930.
A standard shower grid of 600mm x 600mm is £630.
...and it feels so lovely to stand on! I found the service from William Garvey to be exceptional from start to finish and their communications along the way very helpful indeed. I would not hesitate to use them again. Pamela Jones
With regards to the care and cleaning of our products it’s simple: we suggest a non scouring household cleaner similar to that which you would use on the surface of an enamel bath. No extra special care is needed but we do not recommend using bleach on the surfaces.
In areas of hard water we do recommend using a water softening system to avoid calcium build-up. Perhaps once a year give them a good polish with a product similar to OSMO oil which can be found in most hardware outlets, this will rejuvenate them in the future.
With over 40 years’ experience in design and manufacture we really understand timber and know that you will have no problems when you use teak as you may with other woods, and our designs are well proven watertight over time.
