Infinity Drains??


I just stumbled upon this site that had what seemed like some very nice products on it. I have saw in restaurants and other businesses the ugly quarry tile with a drain in a certain point. Well this stuff looks like its for upscale houses and even some basic ones too. I think it would be cool to have a drain along the outside wall of a kitchen or bathroom. For cleaning, you could actually get a floor nice and wet and soapy, scrub it, and then squegee water to the drain. I'm sure people would love this concept in there homes as well!!

Linear drains are hot these days. Allows larger tiles in shower cuz you only have a single slope.

infinity drains


yes they seem like they would be a pretty nice system, no one offers them up here in northern Michigan. I was looking at dealer locator and none up here, i'm sure some of there products can get pricy but everything can nowadays. A few more days and I will be going to Schulter Systems Innovation Workshop in Traverse City, I wonder if Infinity has any type of training classes??

Is the Schluter workshop gonna be held at Tilestone Imports perhaps? Are you familiar with Schluter products?

I went to a Schluter workshop help at the CTEF (Ceramic Tile Education Foundation) in South Carolina in '09. Well worth the drive and we were all treated as their VIP guests. They make hundreds of products including; http://www.schluter.com/showerprofil...prettyPhoto/0/

that was awesome, I figured the Schulter made something like the Infinity. Schulter is probably a better option as well, I have heard some horror stories over some of the other off brands of Schulter, there's a blue underlayment that I saw, can't remember name of it though. I'm turning into a Schulter Guru, knowlege is so many different things, can't wait to have a Certification or some type of Schulter Training.

Innovation Workshop 1


there is a Schulter Systems Innovation Workshop 1 at the Grand Traverse Resort on May 28-29th, and then they are holding Innovation Workshop 2 at Boyne Mountain Resort on Dec. 1 & 2 of this year. Both are free, all you have to do is go online to there website and register. Unless you are going to need a room to stay over night in, then its not free. Can't wait already registered for both, and keeping an eye on there page because it shows other training courses but no dates.

I used that blue matting once, I forget the name too, they kept changing it cuz it didn't work like they had planned on paper. aha...got it, Blanke. It's a German company too, made in Georgia I think.

I have used the Schulter Systems Ditra and waterproofing membrane once, it was recently and that is what got me going on it, so when I started researching I found that workshop. I liked it, it was totally different then anything I had ever done with tiling, I could see some downfalls to it though, it seemed like it took forever for thinset to actually dry, there's no place for moisture to go but up so it takes a little longer. But to the right person that would be alright cause it would give u time on another job. Plus so many flooring contractors are switching to this. And I love the idea of being able to carry 11sheets worth of durarock on my shoulder!!!
Or in vehicle.

Specifically what thinset did you use; to install Ditra, to set tile on Ditra? What type and size of tiles?

I learned about Ditra in '88-89(?) but didn't use it until '97 or '98. I was afraid people would throw me out of their house if I walked in with a roll of orange plastic that weighs under 40 instead of a bunch of sheets of CBU. I remember the first job I did with it. I laughed the entire day cuz it was so much easier on the body.
