Product Spotlight

Beautiful and Efficient Zero Entry Solutions

WallDrain has won both Architizer's A+ Popular Vote and Jury Awards! 

Quick Drain is proud to sponsor the "Certified Living In Place Professional" class in Columbus , Ohio on August 22-23 at the Universal Design Living Laboratory. Click HERE to learn more. 

Linear drains are the ideal design solution for Living In Place showers and wet spaces. With a linear drain, the shower entry can be even with the rest of the bathroom floor - no curbs or bumps to negotiate. Because the one-directional slope allows for use of large format tiles or even solid surface material, such as concrete or marble, there will be less mold and bacteria harboring grout lines. This makes the linear drain system the easiest to access and maintain.
