WHY ARE SHOWER TRAY UPSTANDS IMPORTANT?
Shower tray Upstands on our Acrylic Shower trays (as opposed to cheaper ABS plastic construction) are hygienic and very easy to clean, they can be repaired if scratched or chipped and will not discolour (go yellow) over time. Our Acrylic Shower trays are fully self-supporting with a solid acrylic surface fiberglass backfilled with a resin encapsulated board and self supporting feet to spread weight and ensure strength and durability. In fact our shower trays have passed the rigorous Housing New Zealand durability test by surviving a cycle test of a 200 Kg weight being dropped onto the tray 5000 times. This represents a tested lifespan of this shower tray design of 13.7 years, used once a day by a 200 KG person. No detrimental effect at all was observed to the surface or the structure of the shower tray.

4 Lip Shower trays
As the name suggests, these shower trays have a 28mm high upstand around the perimeter on all 4 sides of the tray. The shower door and screens then sit inside these ‘upstands’ so that water cannot leak from any corner and is retained inside the shower box when in use. All 4 sides of these trays are a ‘finished’ surface, meaning that the tray can be rotated for a variety of install situations to suit individual requirements and the visible surface is white acrylic..
