Such devices come in different types, and today we will talk about triangular corner shower ladders. About what are the features of such a device, what are the corner ladders — read on.

What is a corner ladder

As it is easy to guess from the name, the corner ladder is a special drainage system designed for installation at the junction of two walls of the bathroom - that is, in the corner.

The cases of corner ladders are made of high-quality plastic, characterized by strength, resistance to temperature changes and the effects of aggressive substances. Such plastic parts do not lose their characteristics during operation, are not subject to corrosion and oxidation.

The siphon can be standard or rotary. The second option involves the possibility of 360-degree rotation — this feature becomes vital if the installation is carried out in a hard-to-reach place with a complicated approach to sewage.

Decorative grating is made of various materials — most of them are plastic or stainless steel. Stainless alloy is more durable and resistant to mechanical damage, as well as plastic, it is not subject to corrosion. Plastic grilles are considered a budget option, at a time when steel ones are suitable for use in places with increased load, for example — in public showers, in swimming pools. The decorative pattern of the lattice can be any - the drawings “wave” and “square" are very popular, as they correspond to all modern trends in interior design.
