Q: Would you explain the differences between the Straight Wall, Square Wall or Coved Wall variations?
A: Each of these options are provided to satisfy different personal, functional and budget choices:

The straight wall option is built to allow the shower wall panels to extend directly to the floor of the shower pan and are the most requested and economical shower pan. This straight wall option will accommodate the thickest shower walls of all that Grifform offer. Generally used with shower walls of heavier weight, like Granite where the weight is baring primarily on the floor.

The square wall option provides for the shower wall panels to sit on a ledge nearly 3” from the shower pan floor with a square corner at the wall and floor line. The coved wall option is the premier offering, providing a smooth round inside corner at the floor and inside corners of the pan. This coved option also provides for the shower wall panels to set up above the floor as with the square option and both of these types allow for ¼” and ½” material thicknesses. Both the square and coved options allow for different wall material alignments as you prefer.

Q: How do I care for my shower pan?
A: Materials the Grifform® shower pan is constructed of is easy to care for and is described thoroughly in the DuPont™ Corian® care guide. The great feature of your Grifform® shower pan is that it can be cleaned with soapy water or ammonia-based cleaners and sponge or Comet® abrasive cleaner and a Scotch-Brite® pad, without any worry about damaging the surface. Unlike any other shower materials, the cleaning renews the surface and will help it look like new. Soap film, dirty grime and body oils are easily cleaned without fear of damage and rinsed away. Because the material is non-porous it does not harbor bacteria or molds that makes it ideal for use in the shower and bathroom areas.
