Tile Insert Tray Tile to Tile/Absolute

The Absolute is an all-in-one integrated drain and flashing solution which allows you to install a lineal drain at the front of a shower, on a level floor, without the need for structural changes to the floor or sub-floor structure. You only need to be able to move the plumbing to meet the outlet on the lineal drain. The Absolute is ideal when updating a bathroom in an existing house or when installing a lineal drain in a new house without the need to lower the floor in the shower base area.
The Absolute consists of a lineal drain (Advantage/ Ultimate or Tile Inset style), an integrated “F” flashing when installing the shower in the corner of the bathroom, or 2 integrated “F” flashings when installing the shower in a location which does not have a side wall.
The “F” flashing is mounted on the floor between the rear wall and the lineal drain and provides a 30mm high channel which will hold the side glass shower screen. The 30mm high “F” flashing is used as the side wall section for the screed which is applied to create the 15mm of fall required in the shower base (from back to front).

The standard features of the Tile Insert Absolute Lineal Drain include:

  • Drain tray with built-in fall, either left or right
  • Easy to install and waterproof
  • 30mm “F” flashing
  • Standard 50mm male threaded waste located 75mm to centre from end of drain;
  • Manufactured from 316 (marine) grade stainless steel;
  • Drain is electro-polished to prevent tea-staining;
  • 50+mm flashings on horizontal surfaces, which meet or exceed Australian Standards for flashing on horizontal surfaces;
  • Weep slots in the horizontal flashing tile lip to allow any water which escapes past the tile seals to drain back into the drain channel and not build up under tiles, causing water damage.
  • Available in either brushed or polished finishes

The custom features of the Tile Insert Absolute Lineal Drain include:


  • Manufactured to suit the specific tile thickness on floor and walls
  • Drain length is manufactured to your specification;
  • Side 30mm “F” flashing is manufactured to suit your specification
  • Outlet location can be located to suit your requirements;
  • Outlet can be changed to be a stainless steel dropper, size to suit.

All Tile Insert lineal drains are delivered with a suction cup to aid the removal of the tile insert tray. Please Note: The suction cup should only be used to lift the tile insert tray at one end, allowing the tray to be grasped by hand and carefully lifted out. The suction cup is unlikely to work on porous stone or tile surfaces such as bluestone or marble.
