4 Tips for Architects Comparing Shower Manufacturers

When bathroom architects approach a new project, looking for the best shower manufacturer is one of the most important things they will do. But with so many different companies all vying for attention, how can you figure out what separates the best shower manufacturers from the rest?

Here at EverFab, we know how crucial it is to have a high-quality shower or tub unit, which is why we pride ourselves on offering the highest level of craftsmanship in every unit we make. If you’re looking for the shower manufacturers, we’re here to help. Let us walk you through four of the major things you should be looking out for.

1. Ask About the Shower Materials Used in Construction

The materials used in the construction of a shower or tub unit will make or break that unit’s durability and usability. You know this, your clients know this, so it’s essential that you know exactly what kind of shower materials a manufacturer uses in their construction.

A lot of shower manufacturers rely on heavy amounts of calcium sulfate in their construction, as it’s a required material that makes the units less flammable. However, too much of this material will lead to a final product that appears durable but is actually brittle and cracks easily. 

This is why EverFab uses a unique fiberglass material with a higher concentration of glass and a lower concentration of calcium sulfate. With a better mixture of shower materials, we’re able to produce products of the highest quality that offer a level of reliability and durability that other fiberglass shower manufacturers can’t.

2. Make Sure They Can Safely Deliver Their Units to You

Far too often, shower manufacturers don’t have a shipping process that can truly guarantee that the units you’ve ordered reach you without any scratches, chips, or cracks. Even if you find what you think is the perfect tub or shower unit, it’s not going to be much good if it fails to arrive in pristine condition.

However, when you buy from EverFab, you can rest easy knowing that the product you’ve ordered will arrive on time and undamaged. To guarantee this, we take the following precautions:

  • Install a wooden perimeter around the tub shower unit to protect the skirt, apron, and flanges from any potential damage.
  • Place a wooden board along the back of low-profile models to prevent the drain and floor of the shower from resting directly on the ground where it could get damaged.
  • Set up a diagonal board on all of our 5-foot shower stalls to add an extra layer of structural protection.

3. Look Into How Compliant Their Products Are with Accessibility Standards

No matter what kind of fiberglass shower units you or your clients are looking for, it’s important that you look for units that are compliant with accessibility standards. There are a number of these standards to be aware of, and if you need help navigating them all, EverFab can help

We not only offer accessories, tubs, and showers that comply with both ADA and FHA standards (for example, our units support two-times the weight required by the 2010 American with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design), but we can also provide you with a free consultation that will help ensure your upcoming or ongoing project is compliant with the right standards.

4. Only Work with the Most Experienced Shower Manufacturers

When it comes down to it, the best thing you can do as a bathroom architect is to work with the most experienced shower manufacturers. Maybe a newcomer to the scene can offer lower prices, but if they don’t have the equipment and expertise to back them up, you might end up with products that miss the mark.

That’s why EverFab is proud to have over 35 years of combined experience in the shower manufacturing industry. We’re always working to refine our practices, adopt the best and most modern equipment, and provide our clients with the kind of customized products and services they need. 

All of the fiberglass shower units we offer come with a warranty that guarantees the highest level of craftsmanship and durability.
