The new flexibility in bathroom design

TECEdrainline shower channels free the bathroom from disturbing separations such as the shower trays and cubicles and allow a uniform floor design. This produces accessible bathrooms with a generous character – real space for living.

And if recessed is what you're after, then take a look at our TECEdrainprofile shower profile.

TECEdrainline shower channel

Demands are increasingly being placed on the bathroom to function as a living space. Shower channels create floor-level shower areas – therefore useable space. The technology is perfectly integrated in the floor – in both new and renovated buildings: The intelligent drainage technology, which meets all hygiene requirements, remains invisible.

1Protective construction cover made of plastic: protects the channel and sealing sleeve from dirt and damage during the construction phase. This is removed once the screed is filled.
2The seal of originality: guarantees the original status of delivery of the channel from the factory when transferred undamaged between trades.
3Transparent protective construction cover with opening for seal inspection.
4Factory fitted Seal System sealing sleeve: offers additional reliability in sealing and saves an additional working step.
5TECEdrainline channel: made of stainless steel – free of screws and parts of threads on the inside. This consequently makes it hygienic and easy to clean. The inside gradient prevents any deposits building up as a result of standing water.
6The shower channel with hygienic secondary drainage.

WHY TECEdrainline-Evo?

The TECEdrainline-Evo is a new generation of the shower channel from TECE that has been used a million times.
The Drainline-Evo makes it easier for installers and tilers to install the channel and offers a bonus to reliability in assembly and sealing.

This doesn't change any of the proven product features, such as the easy to clean stainless steel channel with anti-capillary edge.

The advantages at a glance

  • Factory fitted Seal System sealing sleeve: quicker installation, greater reliability, reduced liability risks
  • Protective construction cover against damage and dirt
  • Seal of originality for safer trade handover
  • With anti-capillary edge and optional secondary drainage – hygienic and protected against backflow

TECEdrainline-Evo assembly: simple, fast and reliable

Secondary drainage, yes, no or both?

The subject of secondary drainage is being discussed more and more controversially in expert circles. Our view on this has not changed in all these years and is underpinned by many years of practical experience in the field of kitchen and industrial interiors.

  • The only forces at work in the thin tile bed are capillary forces. It is physically impossible for trickles to fall in line with the gradient. Corresponding studies have conclusively demonstrate this.
  • For hygienic reasons, no matter whether it's in a big kitchen, a swimming hall or in a domestic shower, a drain channel requires an anti-capillary edge that prevents the shower water from penetrating under the tiles.

Since despite everything there is still a demand for channels with secondary drainage, with the TECEdrainline-Evo TECE now offers an option for secondary drainage without removing the proven anti-capillary edge. The result is the first hygienic secondary drainage on the market!

TECEdrainline - glass cover

With shower channel covers made of glass, TECE opts for fine materials in the bathroom.

Loadable despite its transparent appearance: The safety glass sits on a particularly robust stainless steel support.

Like the “plate” tileable channel, the glass cover forms an enclosed surface that can be inserted into the bathroom floor. Shower water drains away via a narrow drain opening along the long sides of the cover.

TECE offers the glass cover in standard colours green, black and white. The safety glass with rounded edges is permanently fixed to the underlying stainless steel grid by means of a special adhesive.

The colour of the glass cover matches the glass covers of the TECEloop and TECEsquare flush plates. Available in the colours white, green and black.

TECEdrainline stainless steel grates - Make a clear emphasis

Stainless steel is a typical material in the bathroom: authentic, permanent and conveying a sense of value. Stainless steel grates are available in different patterns, bright polished or matt brushed.

The grates are available in polished or brushed stainless steel.

TECEdrainline "plate" - our most attractive shower channel is almost invisible

Thanks to the "plate" tileable channel, the shower channel can be perfectly fitted into the flooring.

The solid construction of the TECEdrainline shower channel enables especially small drainage slots. The tileable channel is also available for the angled channel in various sizes.

TECEdrainline natural stone - Shower channel type "Invisible"

Fine natural stone floors transform bathrooms into true temples of wellness.

The less the floor is broken up by joints or drainage elements, the more high-quality and roomier the space feels.

Specially for thisrequirement TECE expanded its shower channel modular system by a channel for large, natural stone slabs and tiles of any thickness. When installed and covered, the shower channel is completely invisible. Small stainless steel edges bordered the drain opening before, but now nothing except a slit is visible in the natural stone.

Form & function

With TECEdrainline shower channels, there is no need for shower tubs, or (for the most part) separating walls: As a result, the shower area no longer has to comply to standard dimensions, and individual architectural factors can be taken into account.

A unified floor design thus conveys a feeling of generous spaciousness.

Installation variants

With TECEdrainline shower channels, there is no need for shower tubs, or (for the most part) separating walls: As a result, the shower area no longer has to comply to standard dimensions, and individual architectural factors can be taken into account.

A unified floor design thus conveys a feeling of generous spaciousness.

TECEdrainline shower channels open up new design options in bathroom architecture – and bathroom planners can take advantage of this new freedom. In this way, not only stainless steel shower channels can be installed between the wet and dry areas, but also for example, directly at the wall.
