Linear shower drains are an essential part of your wet room drainage system. Also known as shower channels or wet room gullies, our linear drains for wet room and shower floors are suitable for both domestic and commercial environments, and are top of the range when it comes to durability and flow rate. We offer a range of linear drain options for different floor finishes and depths.
Our wet room linear drains range from 300mm to any bespoke length, with multiple cover styles to suit your requirements. Linear drains can be used with micro cement, polished concrete as well as a tiled, vinyl, and stone floor finish.
Our linear wet room drains can be purchased on their own, with separate sloped boards or come integrated into the board, sealed with a factory-supplied fitted gasket with a range of different entry points. The preformed boards have the ideal slope / fall already built in. These linear gully drains can be easily cleaned by removing the grate / tiled cover and trap.
Choosing the right linear shower drain for your wet room is essential for your project. Consider factors such as the material of the floor finish, the adhesive being used, and any additional materials like underfloor heating or decoupling mats. The combined height of these materials along with the capacity of the shower, will determine the most suitable linear drain for your specific needs.
Our range of linear wet room kits and drains is compatible with both wooden and concrete sub floors and are suitable for a wide variety of floor finish materials, including tile, mosaic, concrete, and vinyl.

The capacity of our drains ranges from 30ltrs per minute to over 90ltrs per minute with one outlet.

When it comes to installing a wet room drainage system, you need to determine the type of flooring to use in your wet room, as there are specific linear drain models available for different types. You may need a drain with a low installation depth due to sub-flooring constraints and the chosen floor finish, or a drain specifically made to prevent water leaking for a vinyl floor finish.

My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across Wet Room Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, Wet Room Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System p from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Wet Room Materials. They are a pleasure to deal with.

We have worked on a number of projects with Wet Room Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The Wet Room Materials Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
