Utile is assembled with 1 back wall panel and 1 or 2 side wall panels that are combined to fit your desired shower or tub shower configuration. Build the configuration of your choice with one of the following combinations: a 2 wall corner shower (1 back wall + 1 side wall), a 3 wall alcove shower (1 back wall + 2 side walls) or a tub shower (1 back wall + 2 side walls). To complete your Utile complete shower solution add a Utile compatible shower base or bathtub, and a glass shower door for a perfect fit.
The Ulok system is designed to perfectly align the wall panels, slip them together and lock them into place. Consult the installation guide or the installation video for a step-by-step guide to installing Utile.
Yes, Utile polymer panels are 100% waterproof. To ensure a watertight finish, during the installation of Utile, seal all joints with a clear silicone between the walls and base to eliminate the risk of water infiltration.
Utile can be installed in just a few hours. Before using your new Utile shower or tub shower, allow for sufficient time to ensure silicone is dry before showering, approximately 24-36hrs.
Utile is a do-it-yourself project (2 people are recommended to help lift and maneuver Utile panels) and does not require professional construction expertise to install. Note that MAAX strongly recommends that a plumber do all plumbing connections. MAAX does not provide installation services. If you feel uncomfortable installing Utile yourself, it is recommended to engage a local contractor or plumber to install Utile.
Utile is currently available at select locations. Please consult the Where to Buy page or Contact Us directly for the nearest Utile dealer locations.
