    PRODUCT WATCH: Duravit’s contemporary design and easy installation

    The new contemporary Tempano shower tray system from Duravit can be installed anywhere, making it suitable for all hotel bathroom scenes…

    One of the largest challenges facing fitters during hotel renovation and new-build projects is the shower area. When developing the new, slick Tempano, Duravit paid close attention to the requirements for installation and fitting. 

    Flexibility, speed, and safety are key factors. The height can be flexibly adjusted on site depending on the specific installation requirements. With a standard water trap height of 50 mm (DIN EN 274), the Duravit outlet, specially developed for installation with a support frame, enables heights of 110 mm and above to be realised.

    When installing without a support frame and with a recess in the screed, the minimum height is just 40 mm. The support frame is supplied in a preassembled format and can be easily adapted to the height of the floor structure on site using templates and the adjustable feet that are accessible from above. The Duravit outlet and connected outlet pipe can be visually inspected for leaks before the shower tray is installed.

    The sealing strip is bonded to the lower part of the shower tray in the factory and integrated into the composite waterproofing, so it is easy to create the waterproof seal pursuant to DIN 18534. It meets both the requirements under DIN 4109 relating to soundproofing and the even stricter SIA 181 Swiss standard. 

    The new Tempano shower tray system from Duravit can be installed anywhere, either flush with the floor, semi-recessed, or floor-mounted, with or without a support frame. The state-of-the-art design has a linear slope which, combined with the drain located towards the side, allows a high drainage rate. A total of 27 different sizes are available. The high-gloss, white acrylic is an ideal match for the ceramics. All shower trays are also available with the “Anti-slip” coating. Thanks to this transparent but noticeable coating, in compliance with the DIN 51097 standard, the feet gain a more secure grip in the shower for added safety when showering.
