It all goes back more than 20 years to when Phil Clark, founder of OTL, was carrying out an adaptation in a private home. The use of a conventional shower tray was not suitable due to floor constraints, so Phil proposed using a concealed former that could be covered up with a non-slip vinyl. The trial proved successful and the OTL concealed former went into production in 2000. We’ve been solving problems ever since and you can read about some of the trickier bespoke problems you’ve asked us to solve over the years below.
Bespoke Residential Apartment Project
This luxury 5 apartment project for a property next door to Harrods, in Knightsbridge, was brought to us by a partner company called Volente Interiors – one of their suppliers’ Managing Director had worked with us before. Each apartment had a shower wet room to a custom size – so bespoke formers were needed.Read More...
The reason I chose On The Level is because they offered the perfect partner product – a shower former and a tanking kit – to go with my chosen shower frame. I really loved the innovative concept of a shower drain that was hidden within a wall, plus the quick and easy installation offered by a custom-sized shower tray. Read More
I knew that OTL would be able to help with the design plans and would add a great deal of value to the overall project due to their expertise, as well as supplying the actual bathroom flooring. So, OTL were involved from the beginning of the project and helped us design the internal layout of the bathrooms as well as providing the finished bathroom floors. Read More
It's a complete all-in-one package, unlike lots of competitors. The fact that their tray is 22mm thick is ideal - lots of the work we do is upmarket refurbishments and most people want a walk-in shower nowadays, with no visible join to the rest of the floor, but we need to work within the confines of the existing building which is where OTL helps us.

I really like OTL's very versatile timber former products. It’s quite bespoke what we do and that’s what they are great at – bespoke products for specific projects, even for large scale, multiple unit contracts like the latest stage of the Ministry of Defence SLAM (Single Living Accommodation Modernisation) initiative - the project that we’ve worked on together.

We began working with OTL 18 months ago on this project, and have since worked alongside the team there on several other bathroom POD projects. We used OTL as opposed to other sub flooring contractors as they not only offer a manufactured floor fall within the board build up, but they also offer all the guidance and support we need and want from a partner.

We were working with one of OTL's competitors, a very large company, when one of our surveyors recommended that I talk to On The Level, as he had worked with them on a few projects and felt that they had several advantages over the company we were then using. I certainly agree with that sentiment! Read More
