ClearPath® is an innovative way to construct a barrier-free entry shower that requires no structural modifications to the existing floor joist system. ClearPath® is designed to maintain independence in life, while offering today's most fashionable and sought after designs in level entry showers. It's ideal for new construction and remodeling projects and affords contractors and homeowners near limitless design options.
"With ClearPath®, we saw a void in the market in the ability to build barrier-free shower pans without major structural modifications to the floor joist system," said Jeff Ketterer, National Sales Manager at Fin Pan, Inc. "In the past, this created more work and liability for contractors. In most cases, the additional expense of retaining an engineer on the structural changes should have been considered. Now with ClearPath®, there are no structural modifications required to the floor joist system while delivering a high-performance curbless shower solution."
The foundation of the ClearPath® starts with the ClearPath® Drain Plate and the TI-ProBoard®. The drain plate comes with integrated drain assembly, waterproofing mat and is pre-pitched for proper sloping. TI-ProBoard® is a composite structural underlayment that offers the ability to install ClearPath® directly on top of the floor joists. TI-ProBoard® was originally developed for tiling exterior decks and offers a Commercial Floor Rating.
The ClearPath® Curbless Shower Pan System is the latest addition to the Fin Pan offering of PreFormed®/ProPan® Shower Pans, Niches, Seats, ProPanel® Lightweight Waterproof Backer Board and Util-A-Crete®/ProTEC™ Concrete Backer Board. Fin Pan was the first in the industry to offer "Custom" shower pan availability that could be produced within a week. The PreFormed®/ProPan® Shower Pans are IAPMO certified and have UPC listings. ProPanel® meets all industry standards for waterproofness and is an affordable option into the lightweight (6 lb.) backer board market.
