LAS VEGAS • FEB 27 – FEB 29, 2024



Jan 15, 2016

Compotite Corporation, a pioneer in the shower waterproofing industry since 1938, proudly introduces its new Linear Drain System™ at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2016 in Las Vegas this January. The high quality, American made, Linear Drain System adds modern style and functionality to any custom tile or stone shower installation.

The Compotite Linear Drain System™ allows large format tile or stone to be used on shower floors by utilizing a plank pitch installation. The Compotite Linear Drain System is ideal for tub to shower conversions and barrier free showers.

The one-piece, ABS molded drain is available in four of today’s most popular sizes: 42”, 36”, 32” and 24”. The drain body, sloped internally and externally, has a proprietary inside step that is designed to be used with the Grate Risers™ and Compotite’s versatile top options. The drain body also comes with a one inch (1”) textured bonding flange, which allows for excellent adhesion with liquid or bonded membranes.

The System includes four options for the drain:

  • Compotite Tile-In Top™- Allows the water to drain around the perimeter of a removable and tiled cover
  • Compotite Tile-Over Top™- Makes the drain disappear into a completely tiled shower floor where water drains into a single ¼” slot for a seamless look
  • Compotite Linear Drain Body- Offers a low profile streamlined design
  • Compotite Linear Drain Body with Stainless Steel Grates- Available in Mission Style or Oval Style

The Compotite Linear Drain System also includes:

  • Integrated Removable Hair Strainer
  • 2-3mm and 4-6mm Grate Risers™ (patent pending) that allow easy height adjustment for different surface tile thicknesses
  • Cut & Cap™- Allows the drain body to be modified anywhere along the slope so that custom drain sizes and off-set drain installations can be achieved

“We anticipate a great response to this new line, due to the simplicity, versatility and ease of installation.” stated Mark MacDonald, Compotite Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our ABS Linear Drain System evolved, as always, from input through our valued customer base. And the ‘Made-in-USA’ aspect of all Compotite products continues to serve us well.”

“Our company has been consistent in providing clientele with proven products in a professional, no-nonsense way for decades.” stated Alan Hutchins, Compotite Vice President of Business Development. “Obviously, we plan to continue that regimen moving forwards. But we also intend to augment the high-quality product and service programs our customers have come to expect from Compotite. Plans include adding, on a regular basis, new problem-solving products, educational data to help installers reach optimal levels with every project using our materials… and, last but certainly not least, new ways in which they all can recognize even stronger margins by partnering with us.”

Kitchen and bath designers, contractors and installers at The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) January 19-21st in Las Vegas can learn more about Compotite’s New Linear Drain System at Booth #S5070 in the South Hall.
