Shower Drains

Proper drainage of wet areas, especially showers, provides a safer environment for users.  Drainage is accomplished by proper sloping to the drain, material selection (facial finish), sizing and appropriate grout joints.

Crossville recommends the following unpolished tile sizes for all drains.

  • 2″ x 2″
  • 1″ x 3″
  • 2″ x 4″
  • 3″ x 3″
  • 4″ x 4

For linear drains, Crossville recommends the following unpolished tile sizes may be used with the long side of the tile running parallel to the drain.

  • 2″ x 6″
  • 2″ x 12″
  • 3″ x 6″
  • 4″ x 6″
