How to Install ProPan with ProPanel shower pan system
Dry fit ProPan® on the shower area. Make sure to pay attention to the location of the center of the drain.
Pan edges may be cut to size pan. If modified, the 1/2″ manufactured channel must be re cut to allow for proper installation of ProPanel®.
Apply a medium bed, latex modified thin-set to the floor area and the underside of pan. Use a 1/2″ x 1/2″ notched trowel.
Apply a liberal coat of PVC or ABS cleaner and solvent cement to the drainpipe and inside the drain where the connection will be made. Note: Solvent choice based on drain type. Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Set pan into the wet thin-set and apply pressure to achieve complete coverage. Level pan to insure proper drainage plane.
ProPanel® Lightweight Waterproof Backer Board Installation:
Apply a 1/2″ continuous thick bead of polyurethane sealant into the
channel of the ProPan®. Using 1/2″ ProPanel® Backer Board, set the board into the sealant until you see sealant oozing out along the joint. Spread excess sealant ensuring a continuous seal at the joint.
Fasten ProPanel® directly to framing with ProPanel® fasteners starting 1 foot above the shower pan. Whenever 2 boards come together to make a joint, apply a 1/2″ bead of sealant on board edges. All boards must be fit together tightly allowing sealant to ooze from joint. Spread excess sealant ensuring a continuous seal at the joint.
Next, determine location of ProPan® Curb. Affix curb to floor by applying a 1/2″ modified mortar bed to floor and underside of curb. Before setting curb in place, apply a bead of polyurethane to ProPan® channel and to the adjoining wall panels.
Screw square strainer down to correct height to match tile. Pack thin-set or pea gravel into area cut out for strainer adjustment.
All fasteners must be completely covered with sealant and spread to form a seal. After installation is complete, it is specified to apply another bead of sealant on all joints, especially on the ProPan® perimeter and curb, to fill any voids in sealant.
Always install tile according to Tile Council of North America (TCNA) guidelines
