MX DuraStone Shower trays – leading the way in shower tray technology


Leading shower tray manufacturer MX Group has launched its new range of DuraStone shower trays.

DuraStone shower trays incorporate all the benefits of the latest materials and technologies in producing probably the most sophisticated and versatile low profile shower tray in today’s market. The tray’s construction consists of a 2.2mm ABS acrylic capped shell that is filled with a mineral stone resin mix. The monocoque construction is then completed with a 2mm ABS embossed base that helps adhesion when installing.

The DuraStone shower tray incorporates the added benefit of torsion beams creating rigidity to the overall tray structure. At 60% lighter than a traditional stone resin tray, DuraStone complies with the HSE regulations for a one-man lift. Manufactured to BS EN14527:2006 these trays are made using WRAS approved Phthalate free materials.

A variety of different shapes and sizes in both flat top and upstand options are available within the DuraStone range. These trays could not be more versatile, as they are suitable for most screens and enclosures and incorporate a high flow 90mm waste, which allows water to flow at 32 litres per minute.

MX is now acknowledged in the sector as the UK’s leading shower tray manufacturer, manufacturing shower trays at its headquarters in Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. This 90,000 sq ft site also acts as the administration and transport centre for the company. Manufacturing 100s of different tray sizes, in 6 main product types, means that MX can cater for the individual needs of all its customers.

Full details of the new Durastone range and all MX Group’s other shower tray ranges, bathroom accessory and electric and TMV2 and WRAS approved Thermostatic Mixer Valves can be found on their new website at www.mx-group.com.

In another exciting move, MX Group has announced further growth in the shower market sector through the acquisition of the UK Division of Irish company Flair International, adding shower screens and enclosures, including the telescopic Capella range, to its already extensive shower sector product portfolio.

“We’re proud of our place in the sector and the quality of the products we produce. The acquisition of the UK division of Flair International Limited further strengthens our strong presence in this marketplace,” says MX-Group chairman Bernard Robinson. “We’re looking for significant organic growth in our business and further improved sales in this and our previous acquisition, Aquatora Limited.”
