Introducing SlateForma™: A Seamless, Grout-Free Alternative to Tiled Shower Floors by Athena Bathrooms

Published: 24 May 2023

Any shower installer or plumbing professional in New Zealand will tell you that customers are always looking for innovative and cost-effective solutions for bathroom renovations. That’s why Athena Bathrooms  is excited to announce the release of SlateFormaTM, a one-piece composite shower tray that provides a seamless, grout-free alternative to a tiled shower floor.

Designed by the team at Athena Bathrooms in New Zealand, SlateFormaTM is a low-profile (25mm) tray that creates a near-seamless transition from the bathroom floor to the shower. The tray can be rebated for a level entry, and it is warm to the touch, providing a comfortable shower experience. Additionally, SlateFormaTM trays can be combined with any Athena door set, offering a complete shower solution.

One of the most important benefits of SlateFormaTM is that the shower tray floor does not require additional waterproofing, making it a cost-effective and time-saving solution compared to fully tiled showers. The shower tray is available in a range of sizes and is custom fitted with aluminium upstands at the Athena factory to suit configuration needs.

Another benefit of SlateFormaTM is its easy-clean design. The tray’s one-piece composite construction means there are no grout lines, making cleaning a breeze. The tray also features optimal drainage with a gentle fall to the Easy Clean waste outlet and a coloured Athena waste cover.

SlateFormaTM ‘s gel coat is available in three nature-inspired colours: Chalk – white, Stone – light grey, and Anthracite – dark grey. The shower tray is designed to replicate natural slate stone texture, providing a sleek and modern finish to any bathroom renovation. The easy-clean design, optimal drainage, and low-profile construction make it an attractive and practical option for any bathroom renovation or new build project, including multi-level dwellings.

With its innovative design, cost-effectiveness, and practicality, SlateFormaTM is a welcome addition to any bathroom renovation or new build project.
