MTI Standard Colors
• MTI Radiance Shower Pan Heating System
Radiance is the patented innovation from MTI that applies radiant heat technology to shower bases. Radiance utilizes electric heating grids to provide radiant heat for the shower base surface. For shower bases with a seat, it will warm the seat and main area of the shower floor. Radiance is factory installed and fully integrated in the acrylic shower base structure. It operates on 24 volts (5 amps) and plugs into a 110-volt, 15 amp GFCI outlet. Since Radiance uses only about as much energy as a standard light bulb, leaving it on will ensure a warm shower base whenever you choose to shower.
The on/off control will require field installation. The control may be mounted on the wall inside the shower base, or mounted inside an adjacent closet or vanity up to 12' away from the shower. The transformer box will protrude into the wall cavity adjacent to the shower base. The box will need to be accessible for any future service needs. See drawings below for box locations. If an alternate location is required it must be specified when the order is placed. The outer edge of the shower base will be notched out at the factory, allowing the cable connecting the Radiance heating grids to connect to the transformer box. See Installation/owners manual
for complete installation instructions.
• Foam Base
All MTI acrylic shower bases are available with a factory-installed pre-leveled foam base. This facilitates installation by eliminating the need for using a wet-bed compound to level the base. This foam also acts as a sound dampener and barrier. MTI uses high-density closed cell foam which will not shrink, crack
or deteriorate over time. Field substitutions (e.g., Great Stuff) are not recommended and may void warranty.
• Tile Flange
MTI Designer Collection shower bases include a tile flange to simplify installation. Multiple-threshold shower bases include a rigid ABS tile flange that is factory-installed on up to 3 sides and may also be ordered as a kit. All other shower bases include an integral tile flange that is molded into the base.
Integral Tile Flange
Not an Option | Feature on Many Bases
The integral tile flange is a ~3 ⁄4" acrylic flange molded into the shower base at the factory and is available only in a 3-sided flange for single threshold
rectangular, square, barrier-free and seated models and 2-sided flange for neo-angle and dual-threshold models. The tile flange is designed
to screw to the wall studs and must be pre-drilled on the job site. Backer board will rest on top of the flange to provide an even surface for the tile.
ABS Tile Flange
For Multiple-Threshold Shower Bases
Rigid ABS tile flange is chemically bonded to the shower base at the factory. This not only facilitates installation but, also enables a watertight seal on any sides specified. ABS tile flange can be installed on 1, 2 or 3 sides of shower base, depending on installation application.
Factory-installed tile flange is 3/16" thick. Account for this thickness when planning final opening size.
