Coram Shower Pod Fitting Information

Fitting the shower mixer valve

Bar shower mixer valve as standard - unique easy-fit system

A special mounting plate is factory fitted to the pod wall, which means that on site you simply need to connect the
mixer to the hot and cold feeds with the valve nuts. On the reverse of the mounting plate flexible pipes hang down the back of the unit and these can be accessed via the removable panel at the front of the base to allow easy attachment to the piped supplies with the push-fit connectors provided. The rest of the shower fittings are then simply screw fixed.

Built-in shower valve option

The built-in valve is factory fitted, which means that on site you simply need to connect the mixer to the hot and cold feeds on the reverse of the valve and connect the shower hose via the bulkhead. The rest of the shower
fittings are then simply screw fixed.

If you prefer an electric shower

If you would prefer to have an electric shower a Coram shower pod will accommodate one easily. Due to vast options based on operational requirements, and of course personal preferences, a model including electric shower equipment is not offered (it would be too complicated to do so). You can however order a Coram shower pod 'empty', that is to say without shower equipment. This attracts a discount to the price and allows you to install whichever make and model you prefer (shower equipment must therefore be bought separately).

Anti-ligature sprayhead

For special commercial application an anti-ligature fixed sprayhead is also available.

Fitting The Shower Pod

The walls and base of the shower pod are supplied in two sturdy cartons, which can easily be manoeuvred on site up stairwells and through doorways to the exact location. The pod is robustly constructed from GRP (glass reinforced polymer) and can be fitted by one man in the simple stages shown below.

 

STEP 1:

Position and fit the fixing batons to the wall

STEP 3:

Slot the side panels to the base and fix to the back wall batons, using the spacer provided to ensure that the correct gap is left for the back panel

STEP 4:

The back panel can then be slotted into position and secured with a single screw

STEP 2:

Locate, level and fit the base

STEP 5:

The front edges of the side panels can then be secured to the side wall batons and the fixing screws will be concealed by the door frame

 

 

Fitting the shower pod doors

Coramís shower doors have been designed to be faster and easier to fit than any other on the market, which is why Coram have become a leading provider of shower enclosures to trade installers. Each shower door is supplied fully assembled, so that on site all that is required is to fit the handle and then install it using the wall channels as shown below.

 

STEP 1:

When fitting the shower door the first thing is to position the wall channels and drill the screw holes.

STEP 2:

The door is finally secured by drilling through the wall channels into the door frame and fixing with screws.

STEP 3:

The wall channels are then slotted onto the door and screw fixed to the wall.
