Shower Door Tips
Slope of Bench Shower Seats
Q. How should bench shower seats be pitched?
A. Just like the shower curb, you will want a slope on the bench that will allow water to flow in the direction of the drain. A 5 degree slant towards the drain usually ensures proper drainage. In speaking with our contractors we have determined the proper slope for a bench seat in a shower enclosure to be the following: 1/8” minimum slope per foot for solid surfaces such as granite, corian, marble etc. 3/16” minimum slope per foot for tiled surfaces with grout lines. These are just the minimums and more is ok.
