Square Grating Formers
Formers With Square Gratings
Choose the ideal former for your wet room.
What does a former do? A former provides the perfect gradient in the floor to force the water to run to the gully quickly. All wet room formers are ‘concealed’ so they cannot be seen once covered with either tiles or non slip vinyl sheet flooring.

If there is not a standard former to fit your designated space, OTL is one of the only wet floor manufacturers in the UK which provides a bespoke service. We can produce formers in any shape and ranging in size from compact 500mm x 500mm formers up to 3000mm x 3000mm large formers.
Why might you need a bespoke former? A bespoke former can save an enormous amount of time for the installer. For example, with a timber floor there can be under-floor obstructions such as joists or heating pipes which would have to be moved with a standard size former because it has a fixed waste position. A bespoke former is designed to fit your specific needs and therefore saves time and effort, reducing the need to make extensive changes to the existing substrate, saving labour costs.

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.

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.

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
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
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
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.
