CLEVELAND, September 27, 2022 — QuickDrain, part of L.R. Brands, an Oatey® innovation, today announced that it has expanded its use of sustainable Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), incorporating the material into its innovative WallDrain linear drain system. All QuickDrain shower systems now include the sustainable material, which is composed of 100%-recycled plastic bottles and is fully recyclable.
WallDrain, a unique linear drain system that is built into the wall instead of the floor surface, will continue to deliver the same excellent engineering and performance users have come to expect, while incorporating the many benefits of PET into the construction of its vertical installation panel and furring strips. A strong yet lightweight, economical and shatterproof material, PET is also extremely easy to cut and very sturdy when drilled into joists. The unique material does not degrade over time and performs under even the toughest conditions at 145 pounds per square inch.
“At QuickDrain, we have seen time and time again the exceptional performance that PET delivers in our shower systems, and we are pleased to be able to add it to WallDrain,” said Marlee Gannon, Director of Wholesale Product and Channel for QuickDrain. “By expanding of our use of PET, we’re making it easier than ever for contractors and end users to elevate their shower design, while also continuing to build on our commitment to sustainability.”
