The bases come with even perimeter thickness for easy recessing into subfloor construction while curbs can be used with Fundo Primo as well. Fundo Primo can be directly tiled over upon installation and there is no limitation to the size of tile or type of tile and cement based tile setting materials selected.
Fundo Primo is available with select drain cover options. Due to the precise slope fields of the Fundo Primo, large or small format tile may be used. Within each slope field the tile will be fully supported over an even yet sloped surface. Where slope fields meet, grout lines should be designed when using tile larger than 4 “ x 4” as these should not span across two slope fields.
