Tuff Form with Maipei's Mapegum WPS

I am doing an ADA shower and although we planned on using the Schluter Pan and ramp, the homeowner has me looking into the tuff form pan along with maipei waterproofing because he was told that the pan can be installed right on top of the joists (the subfloor is to be removed where the pan footprint will be) and be flush with the floor once a CBU is installed on the floor. Anyone done one of these?

I can't seem to find any info on the "cut out the subfloor, install directly on joists" part.

Just off the top of my head, I am not sure building or plumbing code would allow that. Do they have any code approvals or ICC-ES reports?

Good question Dave. I am expecting a call back AKW and will certainly ask for the code approvals for this product. I'll keep you posted.

Can this be tiled? Sounds more like it is made for vinyl.

Yes, it is made for tile. It is warrantied when used in conjunction with Maipei's Mapegum HPS waterproofing. We are moving forward with this system. I will take some pics. and let you know how it goes.

Well, the kit was pretty expensive but it is a great alternative when installing a curbless shower on engineered joists. Here are a few pics.

Interesting- more pics please.

Shower floor looks to be bigger (long rectangle)from the top finished shot than from the underneath (almost a square) picture. Optical illusion?

Shower floor looks kind of pitchless on the right side.
