Acrylic Bath Tub Shower Unit

What is an acrylic surface? A thermoplastic coating adhered on the surface of bathtubs and whirlpools. Typically comes in sheets and is conformed to the shape of the mold (tubs/showers/drop in tubs) in the factory. Normally fiberglass is added to the back for strength. This will increase the durability of the tub, shower, drop in unit to handle more stress, weight and accidentals.

If extra accessories are need such as a grab bar or shower head slide bar, then a fiber-glassed in 2″ x 4″ or bigger will be placed in the spot that the plumber identifies for added support in installing these features.

The Tub/Shower unit above is a right hand drain. Make sure before purchasing a tub-shower or specific drop-in tub unit that the drain is on the side that you will need it on.
