Dual or Double Outlet formers are made to include two waste outlets in one former. It is a bespoke option which OTL has perfected over the 15 years we’ve been manufacturing wet room floor formers.
Why would I want two outlets in one shower?
This client was concerned that (in the unlikely event) the shower gully should block, water might back up from the waste. To solve their concerns, On The Level was asked to manufacturer a former which also included a linear channel drain to the wet room doorway. There were 5 wet rooms in total.
Water would then be restricted in the absolute worst case of a flood and contained within the wet room. Even though it is very unlikely that a shower gully would block so badly that water would build up quickly enough to run away from the gully, this project does show OTL’s level of innovation in producing custom formers which help put the client’s mind at ease.
What we had to work with
For this type of manufacturing OTL work with CAD facilities in order to design the floor to the correct measurement proposed by the interior designer or architect. In this particular case a site visit was necessary to assess the type of floor build and to measure out the formers in order to start the CAD designs.
Here are some of the original drawings supplied to OTL. Highlighted in blue is the shower area and you can also see the gullies and linear channel to the wet room doorways.
