Floor level shower

Vision is a sense of all senses, is a capacity to tell immediately the impression. Visual aspect plays a very important role. The first thing our eyes are able to percept in a bathroom with seamless surface shower is a generous space to move around and very trendy look. It seems wider, especially if a shower box made of a glass panels only. The inner part looks bigger and airy like a deep breath, and stylish look accentuated by absence of steps and angles, typical for old school shower cases.  
The image of a floor level shower itself gives particular mood. This is nothing than a uniform surface, a floor prolongation interrupted by a water spout. Outdated shower cases are to be eliminated in favor of easy, barrier-free designed flush-to-floor shower, creating an atmosphere of glamour in entire bathroom, a mean to unite beauty and practical use. 

Floor level showers are presented in numerous variants. It may be took the same as a floor and, thus, enhance a feeling of continuity, or to be used as an instrument to accentuate diversity.

• Classic central floor drain
• Floor drains across perimeter  
• Shower drain cannels

The system of shower cannels is mostly used because of its practical benefits and modern look. Often made of inox steel, discharge canals have various length and design, and that is more important they have integrated traps and filters, to catch dirt and hair, that is simple to wash and clean.
