Creating a roll in shower (or one level wet room) not only adds safety to a bathroom remodeling project but style as well. Our line of sturdy roll-in or walk in shower pans are made of glass reinforced plastic (high strength composite pan) and can be set directly on floor joists to create a step-free (zero threshold) shower without compromising the integrity of joists below. This system can be enjoyed by all members of the family – regardless of whether they need an ADA or handicap shower or just want a walk in design. The one level look is contemporary and fashion-forward.

One of the misconceptions about roll in shower pans is they look institutional. This does not need to be the case. Our walk in shower bases provide the following advantages:

Offers a safe entry into a shower for a person of any ability – With a curbless zero degree threshold design even those with limited mobility (or in a wheelchair) can safely roll in or walk into this shower.

Stylish design – The roll in shower base is designed into a wet room to create a sleek European design – while providing the safety of a curb-free entry.

Easy installation - A one day installation is possible with these roll in showers, and you won't be cutting joists which compromise the structural integrity of your home. 

Flexibility in sizes and shapes of the shower – with either our grout-free roll in showers or our large format or mosaic tile one level wet room systems, you'll have the flexibility to create different sizes (and even shaped) showers. With the adjustable tile grates you can use tile or stone which varies in thickness from 1/4" to 1". 

Can be used with existing flooring or many types of new floors – Our shower pans can be installed into bathrooms where you want to keep the existing floor or where you’re doing a complete remodel. Feel free to use any type of bathroom floor (tile, wood, stone or vinyl will all work with this system).

Easy installation and lower labor costs – Whether you’re a DIY’er or want this base professionally installed it is not a complex process. Contact us for professional installation or nationwide supply. Since these bases are pre-sloped - there's cost or time associated with a mud pan style installation and there is NO NEED to cut into wood joists to create a roll-in shower base.

Flexibility in drain location – Our ready for tile roll in pans can either be rotated for different drain locations, or choose our new 'Flex-Drain' roll in pan with up to 16 drain locations per base. This feature will not only save time, but also signifcant costs since you may not have to move your plumbing.

Waterproof shower base system – When you choose either our high-strength plastic composite shower pans or our ready for tile roll-in units, you can combine them with waterproofing kits to create a one level wet room where you WILL NOT have to worry about leaking in the floors below.

ADA roll-in or walk in bases work for wheelchair access – A zero threshold system not only looks stylish but makes it simple for a wheelchair to roll in or another member of the family to walk in.

Adaptable with multiple glass enclosure systems – Whether you want to use a shower screen, pivoting glass door shower enclosure or even a glass block shower system – this base can accommodate the style of glass walls you desire (or have a completely open shower with curtains to provide showering care for a loved one. 

Works in large and small bathrooms – you don’t need to have a large bathroom to use this system. With a one level wet room system you simply can waterproof the entire bathroom floor if you'd like. 

Available wet room kits or waterproof wall panels to waterproof the whole bathroom – why stop at just waterproofing the shower – create the ultimate experience and ease of maintenance by using our wet room kits for the entire floor. And build on the low maintenance theme by using realistic laminate laminate shower wall panels as well.

Free shipping and nationwide supply or professional installation – If you’re a DIY person looking for a top of the line ADA handicap roll in shower or want professional installation Innovate Building Solutions can help.

    Wet Room Benefits, Installation Kits and Service

    While wet rooms are extremely popular in Europe and Asia (where square footage is at a premium) – the concept is just now gaining popularity in the United States. A wet room is different than a traditional bathroom. In a wet room instead of having an enclosed showering space (also called a shower enclosure) the entire bathroom is open. In addition a wet room is at “one level” vs. having a showering space with a built up curb that someone needs to step over.

    The benefits of a wet room include:

    • A fully accessible shower can be created in very small bathroom spaces (even bathrooms smaller than 5' x 7').
    • Provides a stylish European type design aesthetic - sleek and contemporary.
    • Offers more space in the showering area vs. a traditional shower enclosure.
    • Can create a roll in shower or walk in shower even in a small bathroom.
    • Easier to clean up the bathroom, or even wash your dogs.

    The design of a wet room is key to it’s long term performance. Some key points to consider include:

    • A substantial portion of the walls and the entire floor will need to be tiled with the appropriate wall backer boards behind the tile (we recommend waterproof extruded polystyrene wall backer). Other stylish wall panel systems like laminate wall panels, solid surface, stone, marble or PVC backed composites can also be used.
    • The entire bathroom floor and the lower 12" of the walls must be waterproofed.
    • It will be best to use bathroom furniture and toilets that are wall mounted and can withstand water.

    Fixed and Pivoting Shower Screens 

    If you’re looking for a way to keep the water contained in your roll in barrier free shower consider the use of a stationary or pivoting shower screen. These glass enclosures can add a modern European style and serve the purpose of directing more of the shower water into a confined area.

    fixed Glass Shower Screen

    This shower screen system is made of ¼" thick glass bordered by polished aluminum hardware to provide a contemporary look in a zero threshold shower. Each shower screen includes both wall mounting hardware and a 55 ¼" tie bar (which can be cut to the desired length) to connect to another wall (or another screen).
