Marlin Floor Formers
Our Marlin floor formers are truly at the cutting edge of wetroom design. Marlin is a tried and trusted floor former for use with floor tiles. They have only two falls where most floor formers have four. This means that they are easier to tile and have no "Envelope cut" in the tiles.
An "Envelope cut" is where the tiles need to follow the falls built into the floor former. So if there are four falls or slopes, then the tiles have to be cut in relation to this. Therefore, when viewed from above it shows the cuts in the tiles like an envelope. Because Marlin only has two falls, there is no envelope cut. This results in... well, take a look at the additional images and you will see what we mean!
One of Marlin's other benefits is that you can fit up to three traps/ wastes under the top grate if needed. So if you have a particularly high flow rate on your shower, you can simply add another waste, or even two if necessary.
Marlin is very strong, but also very light and easy to work with. It can be trimmed if needed by hand with just a normal wood saw. It also comes complete with a Horizontal outlet waste, and with a clever grate that gives you the choice to have either a Brushed Steel finish or by simply turning it over, it will accept an inset tile. By ensuring the floor former is level on all sides, the built-in gradient will reliably direct the water to the drain in an efficient manner, by way of the pre-formed gradients built into every Marlin floor former. Marlin is manufactured from a High-Density XPS and has a mineral coating on both sides. It has thermal and acoustic properties, and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Marlin floor formers are 22mm in depth.
