This innovative system offers architects, designers and contractors one complete waterproof shower installation made easy.
“Our partnership with Infinity Drain is a testament to USG’s commitment to delivering products that help our customers build faster, smarter and with peace of mind,” said Scott Crandall, senior manager, North American sales and product development, USG. “This new addition to the USG portfolio allows for a one-stop solution—architects, designers and contractors can turn to USG for all their tile and flooring needs.”

With traditional mud bed shower construction, there are several steps needed to form a consistent pitch or perfectly flat substrate. From mixing and forming screeds to pulling the mortar, it can take up to three days to install a shower bed. The USG Durock™ Brand Infinity Drain™ Shower System offers a bonded waterproofing system made for tiled shower installations that eliminates many traditional application challenges.
The USG Durock™ Brand Infinity Drain™ Shower System is comprised of:
USG Durock™ Brand Infinity Drain™ Linear Drain Kit
USG Durock™ Brand Infinity Drain™ Shower Floor
USG Durock™ Brand UltraLight Foam Tile Backerboard (Wall)
