Mira Showers have dedicated New Product Development and Industrial Design teams who are committed to designing award-winning products with genuine user benefits. One such product is the award-winning Mira Flight Safe shower tray. Let’s take a look at what makes these Mira shower trays so innovative…

Fitting an anti-slip shower tray doesn't mean having to compromise on style

Adding a safe & stylish shower enclosure

When looking to create the ultimate safe bathroom, especially for those requiring bathroom aids, the best solution can often be to remove the bath, and replace with a shower tray and complementary enclosure. One of the most daunting and difficult parts of the daily bathroom routine is stepping in and out of the bath, however, with a Mira Flight Safe walk-in tray, this worry is instantly removed.

By combining any of the Mira Flight Safe shower trays with a shower enclosure, you can easily create a stylish and easily accessible showering area, without having to go to the expense of creating a wet room. This innovative shower tray range has a super-slim 40mm height making it one of the lowest trays on the market. This slimline design ensures a slick and contemporary look for your bathroom, effortlessly creating a design that gives the appearance of a wet room.

Providing a solid and stable base, the Mira Flight Safe shower tray has been awarded the 2017 Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation

In choosing the Mira Flight Safe shower tray, you are choosing a shower tray with award-winning safety benefits—cleverly combining innovation and safety. The Mira Flight Shower range is made from durable acrylic-capped resin stone, making it an anti-slip tray like no other. The whole tray is covered in the exclusive Mira Safe coating, which exceeds the most stringent anti-slip tests (Mira Flight Safe passes at Class C—the highest grade). The Mira Flight Safe tray was recently awarded the 2017 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, one of the UK’s most prestigious awards, for its anti-slip surface.

The tray surface is not only anti-slip, it also comes complete with Biocote® technology which reduces bacteria and mould growth by up to 99.9%, for a cleaner and longer-lasting tray. This clever technology makes the shower tray resistant to scratches, chips and discolouration which may occur over time.

Design options

Whatever your bathroom space, there is a Mira Flight Safe shower tray for you. The configuration options include pentagon, square, walk-in, rectangle and quadrant. Each tray has an optional riser kit, featuring easy push-fit legs to raise the tray off the floor if required. Plus, you have the option of integrated tiling up-stands for watertight confidence. This shower tray not only looks great, but won't compromise on performance either. Integrated into this shower tray is a vortex waste, which allows water to drain rapidly at a speed of around 20-30 litres per minute.
