The Wedge is designed to gravity-flow water towards a linear drain in a barrier-free shower application. The Wedge has a "drain plate" extended from its leading edge (lowest point) that is designed to receive a linear shower drain, thus incorporating the linear drain into the Wedge for maximum leak protection and durability.
Not only can the Wedge be used to build a barrier-free tile or monolithic surfaced shower, it can be used to drain water away from a building's envelope on exterior decks, balconies and patios. The Wedge can also be used to direct unsanitary run-off away from swimming pools.
For high traffic areas, or areas that need "extreme durability," the compression strength (PSI) can be easily increased in our factory (upon request) or by "skimming" the surface with a layer of mortar embedded in metal lath or fiberglass mesh.
