    When you buy a shower pan, it’s NOT like buying a dress or a pair of size 11 shoes. You need to know how the pan will work with your bathroom floor, your glass shower doors and grout free wall panels or tile. You can rely on the Shower Support Specialists at Innovate Building Solutions to help you put all these pieces together.

  • Closeup of GemStone solid surface shower pan material
    A shower base that is designed not to crack

    This completely solid shower pan (which weighs 97 lbs. for a 48 x 36, 123 lbs. for a 60 x 32 and 138 lbs. for a 60 x 36 sizes) is made of a durable mix of resins and minerals (compromised of crushed dolomite stone) with a gel coat top surface. It has the look of natural marble and stone – but is more durable, costs less and is more resistant to scratching.

  • Antibacterial solid surface shower pan
    Get rid of grout with an anti-bacterial shower pan

    This pan is non-porous. You won’t be cleaning tile grout joints or worrying about water finding its way below the surface (and heaven-forbid, the pan leaking).

    Drains are designed in the right locations to make standard tub or shower replacements simple

    GemStone pans are designed with common drain locations to simplify installation time and eliminate the expense of relocating a shower drain.

    Solid one-piece construction

    A well-kept secret is that many cultured marble and solid surface pans are made with several parts which are glued together. The GemStone pan is one solid unit. It’s packaged in sturdy wooden crates, so it arrives in one piece.

  • Shower pan in a white marble pattern which includes a ABS drain and drain cover
    You won’t get ‘nickel and dimed’ after you buy the pan

    If you’ve ever bought a shower pan only to find out AFTER THE FACT you need to scour the Internet for a drain you know that’s frustrating. With GemStone pans you’ll get an ABS drain included (at no extra charge).

              Frequently Asked Questions About Modern Low Profile Shower Pans

              Is this base safe for a family member with limited mobility?

              Yes – since this low-profile shower pan has a textured bottom surface it’s perfect for someone who can’t step over a high shower curb or isn’t steady on their feet.

              Do you have a shower pan which is pre-made for a bath to shower conversion?

              Yes. We recommend the 60” x 32” reversible shower pan with the side drain. The same pan can be used for a left or right hand drain. 

              60 x 32 shower pan in white marble
              Are these shower pans anti-bacterial?

              Since this is a solid surface base which doesn’t absorb water, it’s also anti-bacterial.

              What are GemStone shower pans made of? Are they solid or hollow at the bottom?

              GemStone shower pans have a stone texture and are one solid unit. They’re made from resins, crushed stone dolomite minerals, and a gel coat top finish. They’re highly resistant to problems from impact, scratching, stain, or heat.

              How is it possible for the same GemStone pan to be used for an alcove, corner, or 3-sided glass shower?

              Since PVC tile flanges are added at the site (vs. at the factory) the same shower pan can be used for a corner shower, alcove shower or even with a glass shower door system with glass on 3 sides depending on which side(s) you use the flanges. Now that’s a flexible pan!

              What’s included with a GemStone pan? What options are available with the pans?

              Each low-profile shower pan includes 3 PVC tile (or grout free shower wall surround) flanges, a decorative drain cover and an ABS drain kit. And if you want to use your own drain, any standard 2” drain will work.

              The most popular options with grout-free GemStone bases are grout free shower wall panels and glass shower doors. Ask your Innovate Building Solutions Representative for information about these products.

              What’s the warranty with GemStone pans?

              The GemStone pans through Innovate Building Solutions have a 10-year warranty. This warrants the product to be free from manufacturing defects. If there’s a problem with a GemStone pan manufactured by Duplach we will provide a new shower pan free of charge or a repair kit for a minor problem. Damages resulting from an improper installation or due to improper cleaning are not covered.

              Are GemStone pans waterproof? Do they need to be sealed?

              GemStone pans are 100% waterproof and don’t require a sealant to be applied to the pan.

              Can GemStone pans be used with any type of glass shower door?

              Yes – it doesn’t matter whether you like pivoting, sliding, bypass or a walk-in shower, a GemStone pan can work with any type glass shower door.

              How are the shower flanges adhered to the shower base?

              Simply peal back the double-sided tape to adhere the tile flanges to the shower pan.

              Can a low-profile GemStone pan be used for a roll in shower?

              Yes – since the GemStone pans have a short curb (it’s 1 1/6” tall) it can be set onto a subfloor, or into a concrete floor to make a level entry for a wheelchair.

              Barrier free accessible shower pan
              What should I use to clean a GemStone shower pan?

              GemStone pans should be cleaned with a PH neutral cleaner like mild soap and water, dish detergent or Mr Clean. Don’t use scouring sponges, alcohol, solvents, acid, or abrasive products.

              How do GemStone shower pan prices compare to fiberglass, acrylic and professionally installed tile showers?

              Since GemStone pans are thicker, sturdier and have longer guarantees than fiberglass and acrylic pans you’ll find they’re more expensive than these lower-quality shower bases.

              However, you’ll not only save money with a GemStone pan vs. a professionally installed tile shower – but you won’t have to clean evil grout joints or worry about a leaking tile shower pan. As you know remodelers and builders give little – to no – warranty with tile showers 

              What’s the benefit of buying a GemStone shower pan from Innovate Building Solutions vs. buying from an Internet retailer or picking up a cheap shower base in a home center?
              • You get experienced shower and bathroom designers who will guide you to the right shower pan for your job. Innovate IS NOT simply an ‘Internet site’ simply selling products. Innovate has people who work daily with homeowners (and builders, contractors and interior designers) with shower bases, wall panels and glass shower doors. Bottom line – we know showers AND the products which may them stand the test of time.

              • Innovate has worked with over 190,000 customers since 1977 and is a debt-free company. We’ll be here to honor your warranty.

              • Rock-solid warranties. Our warranty IS NOT voided if you do it yourself or have a remodeling contractor install the shower base for you. When you ‘read the fine print,’ you’ll find some Internet retailers will find any excuse to void their warranties.  

              • Outstanding reviews. Check them out on Google.

              • Shower pans are packaged on wooden crates to lessen the chance of breakage.

              • Leverage Innovate’s dealer network of professional installers across the country if you don’t have the time (or expertise) to DIY your job.
