Noble Freestyle Linear Drains

Anybody used one yet? I'm doing a shower with some 10 x 20's soon and they want the same tiles on the floor.

Since my newfound obsession with CIS membrane I'm wanting to try some more Noble products.

My supplier has not been able to get me any pricing yet but says that they are available. I don't see prices for them on the Noble store site.

I just found some on installertools.com

From $388.00 up to 900 ish

About what I expected, actually less than I expected.

Midwest trade tools should soon have the Noble line-up in their inventory (or drop ship stable). They had mentioned it here on the forum recently.

10 x 20 shower floor? Sounds cool.

Angus, please do. Any tips or pictures will be appreciated.

Do you have the drains yet? If so, what did you pay and where did you get them?

Unfortunately I didn't purchase them. The HO planned on it being a DIY project but now realizes it's not. He already bought most of the materials.

I will, however, take lots of pics to document the project. It is an interesting one. Bathroom will be split into halves. One side "wet" with Kerdi-Shower & drain, the other side will be "dry". The 2 Noble drains will split the room and act as back up drains.

Cant wait to see some pics and get a review. Have a job comming up in January that will require a linear drain. I love nobel products but I wish they would do more installer training on their products. My dist. cant remember the last time they saw the Nobel rep.

My next project has regular old square drains. I am planning on offering a "free" up grade to a linear drain for the master.

Yeah, if I had a linear drain laying around I would offer the free upgrade also.

I wonder if any companies want to send out some promo ones?

Angus, very curious about Noble linear drain and how it works with 'Kerdi' system.

Also, anyone else on this thread have experience with linear drains in a 'Kerdi' install. Linear drains seem like a great option for my purposes understanding that I am not a professional or DYIer.

Thanks for any experience, comments or leads you can provide.

Regards, John

John,

Don't know if the linear drain to go with the kerdi system is out on the market yet, I heard they are in the process of coming out with such a drain

Why not just use a Noble system at that point? Not that the two couldn't be made to work together, but I'm not going to talk about it.

I installed an Aco linear drain this summer in a kerdi shower. There is a thread about it "quartz linear channel drain." The install went fine but I wasn't extremely impressed with the drain. The Noble ones look much more geared towards a membrane shower. If I used one I would use the Noble membrane.
Here's a pic.

Not talk about it, what is that your cousin's job, Frankendrain?

Mark with that shower, you have certainly made Frankengueze proud

What's the score with that green glass feature strip, that accent should be in the Frankenglass line.
