USG announces user-friendly waterproofing system for tiled showers

USG Corporation has launched a new waterproofing system for tiled showers. The Durock Shower System is a fully bonded waterproofing system that features easy installation and controls moisture independently of the tile covering.

The system streamlines the installation process via pre-sloped foam shower trays (versus the typical dry pack mortar shower bases). Durcok also features a thin, pliable waterproofing membrance and an easily installed drain assembly.

"We are very proud to offer an affordable, higher quality system that will enable faster job turnover and higher profits for our customers," says Scott Crandall, business manager, Substrates and Specialty Division at USG. "We put an abundance of research and engineering into this system to ensure a best-in-class solution that outperforms the competition."

The product is designed for both new construction and repair or remodel projects, with more than 50 grate options in 10 different finishes.
