This unique system from Allproof utilises aspects from our two original designs, the cantilever bracket and threaded leg system.
We have learnt that a securely mounted frame greatly increases strength in areas of use, especially in high traffic areas, and the support legs provide reinforcement as the grates become wider.
Allproof incorporates its own unique 12mm rubber spacer to ensure the drip line from sill is maintained.
The frame cleverly makes the adjustment required to take up the differing remaining space to the building with our in house fabrication.
At the time of this construction anchors will be fitted to be set into the concrete pour and left protruding into the formed channel when boxing is removed.
This allows the “bolted bracket frame” to drop in onto and be fastened to the bolts at a later stage.
This removes the requirement of the system to be on site until later in the construction schedule, removing pressure around time of pour.
Scope of use
The Allproof Vision Shower Channel has been designed to provide an aesthetic look for tiled floor showers utilising a waterproof membrane layer below the finished tile surface. This membrane is dressed onto the Allproof specially designed VF80 flange allowing for subsurface moisture to be drained.
The channel can be used against a wall with a fall created towards the channel and/or a level threshold channel on entrance to a walk-in shower.
The channel can be customised to specific lengths and extra outlets included for areas requiring higher drainage capacity.

Use in Service History
We have installed this system on multiple high profile situations including government buildings, residential and commercial facilities.
The Allproof Vision Series is constructed from high grade stainless steel in New Zealand. We have off the shelf sizes available in 800, 900, 1000 and 1200mm all coming with an Allproof floor waste gully system and VF80 flange.
Allproof also customise channels catering for varied lengths with multiple and/or offset outlet positions catering to specific project requirements.
The Vision series can be further customised with powder coated clours or electroplated metal collection finishes to create continuity and consistency with other fittings within the bathroom design.
The system utilises a specially designed VF80
flange that is recessed flush into the base of a channel created on site, the
waterproofing membrane is then dressed into the recess and onto the flange
completely tanking the wet area. The flange has been designed to provide a high
quality surface for bonding the waterproof membrane to and ensures that all
subsurface moisture collected by the waterproof membrane is directed into the
outlet. The stainless steel channel is set into the recess, levelled and secured
using a porous compound before being tiled up against with a bead of silicon
applied between the tile and channel edge.
The grate has been designed to be easily removable for access to the outlet for any maintenance requirements and cleaning of the channel.
