how to put fall on hardi flooring
 
I am trying to put some fall on hardiflooring
It has to fall from both sides and both ends
The drain is in the centre
I want to put down the same vinyl that they use in hospitals
And i have to use a gattic drain
Pleas HELP

Try again.

Floor slopes aren't built in that manner. What exactly are you trying to accomplish here?:) Where are you getting your information?:)

Im trying to put in a shower in
I do not want to put in a base
I have taken out the hardwood floor and put down hardiflooring
Which is like thick cement sheet
Now i would like to form like a shower base on top
Then there is vinyl you can put on top

You sound as if your mind is made up!:yes:

THAT would be a one of a kind home grown concoction that no one in the industry would condone.:no:

Sorry, can't help you with this one.:(

Now if you want to get serious and build a shower that will last beyond its first use say so and we'll try to help.:)

Actually Hospitals do have non-slip vinyl shower floors
They weren't that good looking
But maybe somebody makes something in better colors/design

Yes and they are coved and the copings are welded. Been there done that. I can promise you THAT isn't what bernster is up to.:)

:)Yes that is exacyly what i want to do

Do you have aluminum cove topping, wood chamfers, vinyl welding rod, and a vinyl welder?

Hardibacker board still isn't the way it is done.:)

bernster61 07-09-2009 10:40 PM

The vinyl layers have all the equipment to do the laying
These thinks aluminum cove topping, wood chamfers, i do not have
Originly i was ging to slope to one end and put in a stainless grate at one end but the vinyl people say i need to use a gattic drain
The flooring i have used is SYCON SECURA
