Master suite remodel, Washington DC

INNER VISION: The almost-transparent shower features two showerheads with hand spray and thermostatic valves as well as a boxy bench. Carefully aligned floor finishes and a slight pitch make the curbless shower possible.

There is quite a bit of pitch in this shower. You can see from roughly the third tile from the left wall heading right the tiles pitch towards the right wall and trench drain.

Notice the bench where it meets the floor - see the pitch?

Thank you for your question. There is a slight slant on the floor to ensure the water goes where it is supposed to. The clients wanted an open feeling with lots of light in their space.

How much slope has this shower ? - How much slope has this shower? It looks quite a bit. I would assume close to 3 inches (7.5 cm) in a distance of 6 feet (1.80 m) which means it slopes approx. 4 % - Usually 3% are way enough. If the drain is placed in the middle of a shower you won't notice the 3 to 4% slope that much like in this picture because the perimeter of the "shower pan - shower floor" is in level and the distances from the high points (walls) to the drain are way shorter (half of the length).

Stabilizing bar/top rail - What options did you consider for stabilizing the glass wall? What product did you end up selecting? We have a similar large glass wall with high ceilings.

We used a header bar made by CR Lawrence - our glass fabricators recommended this product. How is your project going?
