Made to Measure Shower Trays Frequently Asked Questions
What is a made to measure shower tray?
The term made to measure shower tray describes shower trays that have been individually manufactured to a specific non-standard size or shape. These products may also be described as bespoke shower trays, custom made shower trays or tailor made shower trays. In addition to bespoke shapes and sizes it is often possible to specify the colour of a made to measure shower tray and surface finish options may also be offered.
A made to measure shower tray will be required if a standard sized off-the-peg shower tray will not fit the available space or for larger or smaller than normal shower enclosures and screen. If a custom made shower tray is required, it will often mean that a made to measure or bespoke sized shower enclosure, door or screen will also be required. Please refer to our made to measure shower enclosure and frameless glass shower enclosure pages for more information regarding these products.
