Questions & Answers
30 questions

When mounting the better bench in a tiled shower stall, should the underside of the better bench be tiled exactly like the top and sides or left untiled?

Normally the underside of the Better Bench is not tiled. If you do tile the underside of the Better Bench a special thin-set will be required to bond to the metal.

We didn't have enough room for the BB-30 seat, so we installed the BB-24 seat, but it is too little. Is it possible to build out the BB-24 from 17" x 17" x 24 to 18" x 18" x 25 1/2 by adding tile on top of the existing tile?

This installation may work however you would void any warranty by Innovis. You are also potentially going to have issues with the tile as it may not adhere properly causing them to break and or come loose

When installing the BB-ADJR at a length of 48" with walls supporting the unit on each side (and back), what spacing should the invisabolts be positioned at? I would assume with the bench being supported at the walls you would want the two bolts closer to the center?

INVABOLTS should be mounted in the three holes closest to the center of the unit when installing the BB-ADJR at a length of 48'' with three walls supporting the bench.

Can the BB-ADJR seat be installed into a two wall corner, no third wall, and with two Invabolts for support? The bench will be extended to 45 inches.

Yes, you can either use two INVISABOLTs or one BT-17S to install the BB-ADJR in a two-wall corner.

Can the BB-ADJR bench be cut shorter than 33-1/2"?

Yes, the BB-ADJR can be cut down to a smaller size. Innovis suggests cutting off an equal length from both pieces of the unit using either a circular saw and metal blade or a pair of aviation snips.

Better Bench

by thatlittleangel -

This bench is so much easier to install than the typical shower bench. We are very pleased with the outcome of this product, and it holds more than twice the weight as the standard "build it yourself" shower bench. A definite recommend!

"Great" Bench

by Roach -

The Better-Bench is my favorite style of shower bench. I like the openness underneath. It leaves a clean stylish look to any shower. Can even be used after tile has already been installed! End result is very sturdy and WILL hold it's weight.

Better Bench

by Tile Guy -

This is a great product. I have been using it for years in custom shower installations, and customers love it. It is very easy to install (takes maybe an hour, max, including mixing your deck mud). It's easy to sell. Keep a picture in your portfolio to show. Everyone wants it. It sells itself. I have never done a custom shower without one.
