Shower traps are too low profile - help!

All the shower traps I can find are, for obvious reasons I guess, very low profile. However because of pipe clearances and very limited room to work or make alterations, I find I need a deeper trap (like the photoshopped pic below), so that the waste exits around 90mm below the shower tray base. All the examples I've found are around 35/40mm. Plumb Centre had no ideas but I'm hoping one of you boys or girls has a solution

Thanks in advance

Have you got the shower tray yet ? if so what is the diameter of the waste outlet.

In the mean time,this the vertical version of a decent trap..

You can actually cut a keyhole shape in the board directly underneath the tray you know! It doesn’t have to be a perfect circle - that’s what I always do but I have often thought that a deeper trap or trap extension would be useful on occasion!

Of course I did but your OP merely describes a problem yet no specific detail... duh!

Edit: I’m a plumber btw. Are you?

Thought it was specific enough, the first responder understood.

The point is that you (as a DIYer) may have missed a solution that is immediately obvious to a professional who has encountered the same problem many times before...
Uploading pictures and/or providing more detail may help you in the long run.
