Behind-the-wall, “invisible” linear drain concept offers a cutting-edge look that perfectly complements the current trend to curbless showers.

DENVER, FEBRUARY 13, 2019 — WallDrain from QuickDrain USA brings truly unique innovation to the modern bathroom shower. This radically different concept in shower drains features an elegant linear design, but with no decorative metal components. Instead, water gracefully exits via the downward slope of the shower pan into a drain channel concealed behind the base of the wall — rendering WallDrain virtually invisible. Nearly any solid surface tile can be installed in the drain’s magnetic vertical cover before it is attached to the shower wall, resulting in a seamless and fully integrated design.
