    Hey All,

    I'm looking at freshening up our en-suite. I believe it is the original shower (house is 25 yrs old). It is built into a recess so only has a shower door. However, when sizing up the shower tray, it appears that it is 740 x 740mm and the nearest I can find in all shops is 760mm. I understand a certain amount will be hidden by tiles but really can't see this adding up to an extra 20mm.

    Does anyone know if this was a common size back in the early 90s? If so, what are my options now for buying a new tray?

    Cheers!

    You should find that a 760 door will adjust down to the size you need with the difference taken up in the movement within the profiles...

    check the small print before you order though.

    Oh sorry, it is actually a new tray I was after. I have edited my original post to make more sense!
     
  5. 20 mm for two layers of tiles and adhesive (one on each side of the revel) isn't out of the question

    It will be a 760x760 tray with 10mm each side taken up with tiles/adhesive/plaster/plaster board. Good luck with taking the old tray out without damaging the tiles!

    Ok, fingers crossed it is 760mm then! I'm not too worried about the tiles as I'm putting new ones on (and probably plasterboard).

    Cheers!
