Kit creates waterproof environment for tub, shower walls SCHLUTER-SYSTEMS offers everything needed to build waterproof walls for standard tub surrounds or an acrylic shower base with its Schluter-Kerdi-Board Kit. The kit includes eight pieces of ½-in.-thick Kerdi-Board waterproof building panels; a 5-in.-wide strip of Kerdi-Band waterproof membrane; two tubes of Kerdi-Fix sealing and bonding compound; a 4 ½-in. mixing valve seal; ¾-in. pipe seal; and a ½-in. pipe seal. The system is also vapor-tight in addition to waterproof, so it won't leak or promote mold growth.

Utilizing interlocking fiberglass joining plates that are pre-assembled to window frames, large win- dow combinations can be factory-assembled into smaller combinations that can be installed direct- ly into rough openings and connected to adjoining combinations. The system is tested to AAMA 450 requirements; impact certified for Florida's High Velocity Hurricane Zone; and is Hallmark certified for air, water and structural performance. Circle 16 on inquiry card Easing installation of freestanding bathtubs AMERICH eases the difficulty of installing a freestanding bath- tub—due to alignment and connection of a drain pipe—with its Drop-In Drain installation kit. Place a tub, trace its location on the floor, mark the drain location over the plumbing trap, cut a hole in the subfloor and place the Drop-In Drain installation kit. For use with any freestanding, alcove or drop-in bathtub with 1 ½- or 2-in. drains, the kit does away with the need for an access panel.
