Advantage Absolute


The Advantage Absolute is an all-in-one integrated drain and flashing solution which allows you to install a linear drain at the front of a shower, on a level floor, without the need for structural changes to the floor or sub-floor structure. You only need to be able to move the plumbing to meet the outlet on the lineal drain

The Absolute is ideal when updating a bathroom in an existing house or when installing a lineal drain in a new house without the need to lower the floor in the shower base area.

The Advantage Absolute consists of a lineal drain and an integrated “F” flashing when installing the shower in the corner of the bathroom, or 2 integrated “F” flashings when installing the shower in a location which does not have a sidewall.

The “F” flashing is mounted on the floor between the rear wall and the lineal drain and provides a 30mm high channel which will hold the side glass shower screen. The 30mm high “F” flashing is used as the sidewall section for the screed which is applied to create the 15mm of fall required in the shower base (from back to front).

Creative Drain Solutions recommends the use of Arditex NA2, as the screed. This product allows the screed to be applied from a feather edge to a maximum depth of 15mm (in a single application.  Generally, mortar-based screeds are unsuitable for this application. We recommend a second layer of waterproofing is applied after application of the screed.

External to the shower base, the floor tiles are laid against the outside edge of the 30mm “F” Flashing.
