    Overview

    Model # 106486-000-001-000 Store SKU # 1001187862

    Create a sophisticated bathroom space with unparalleled ease and speed. Utile by MAAX is an innovative shower walls solution, available in a range of rich colors, deep textures and stylish patterns that look and feel like tile. Why is Utile superior to tile? Starting with purchase and installation: with tile, several other materials are required and a professional must complete the 3 days installation. Alternatively, Utile walls do not require the purchase of other materials except silicone, and a few tools if not already in hand. They are fixed directly on the studs, in 1 day and do not require hiring an expert! As for the long run: tile is a sturdy material, however grout requires regular care and maintenance to keep its look and integrity long term. Utile walls, on the other hand, have realistic and carefree faux grout lines that will not crack!

    1. Proudly made in Canada
    1. Utile kit includes 3 wall panels, Olympia shower base and a Halo shower door as well as one glass shelf
    1. Mistake-proof ULOK installation system allows you to perfectly align the walls, slip them together and lock them into place
    1. No tile or grout protective sealer required for peace of mind
    1. Fast and easy Direct-to-stud installation
    1. Enjoy true peace of mind with realistic-looking grout lines that won't crack or leak.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from MAXX logistics/quality control. The end walls were to have the hardware to connect to the back wall. They were not there. This has delayed our renovation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with it! I have only had the shower in for a week but we love it. The tile is gorgeous and there is lots of shower room. The only thing I found I didn't like is that the door opening is pretty narrow. I had a contractor install it and he didn't have any problems with it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product does not correspond to descriptions Bad product,do not waste the money. It is foam at the bottom not fibreglass. So will make the base a squeak sound when walking on, not pleasant. A total waste of money!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cracked! This shower base has cracked with very little use. Wish I would have read these reviews before installing. Shower walls will all have to come down to repair now. Trying to get warranty and Maax is now saying the serial number on my base is not valid? Really regretting this purchase, would not recommend.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product I purchased this base and just installed it. Thank goodness I have yet to close the unit in and tile as the base already has a great deal of play between the surface and the foam backing. I am going to tear it out to avoid the same situation other people have had based on their reviews. Terrible product. What at first seems like savings will cost you considerably more in the end. Would have given this product a zero but that wasn't an option. I'm hoping Home Depot will accept the used returned product. Very disappointing that a product like this would even be sold to customers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple but sturdy Bought on line with delivery to my home. Instuctions and video were easy to follow and accurate. Shower walls simple to install and sturdy. Found the base a bit spungy to stand on. Purchased the glass door seperately as we required a black finish for the door hardware. The finished product exceeded our expectations. Would recommend this product for sure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bathroom Reno with shower kit Attractive construction built to last plus the contractor thought it was a smooth installation.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware the cheap floor pan! This shower looks ... nice ... the installation instructions were not exactly obvious and the videos online had some issues. One problem I had with the install was that the printed instructions included were for a different installation style (with glass around the one corner, not just across the front), so I had to rely on the video instructions online. Between the two different instruction sets, I did get the door on, and it works and looks nice (if you don't look too closely!) but it's mounted a bit too far towards the inside - I would have needed to ignore the guidance from the video that suggested installing the first glass panel in the center. As for the walls, they were a real adventure: this is designed to be mounted directly on the wooden frame, not over drywall. The contractor that was doing our framing and drywalling put drywall up that I had to cut out. Furthermore, the one wall had existing drywall, so I was trying to mount that bit on top of the drywall. That meant that I later had to conceal the fastening rim with some trim. This shower should only be purchased if you're going to be mounting directly on the wooden frame of the wall, prior to installing drywall. I don't recall that being mentioned anywhere ... it was evident from the installation video (not explicitly mentioned, mind, just kind of obvious in retrospect, given the instructions). Needless, I suppose, to say: I did not carefully scrutinize the installation video prior to purchasing! It hardly seems reasonable to expect one to do that ... However, the main reason for the low number of stars is that the plumbers and the framing/drywalling contractors all had the same story to tell about Home Depot versions of MAAX products: they are of substandard quality. Specifically, they come with a very thin floor pan as compared to the usual MAAX shower floor pans. Under that thin plastic, they've put some styrofoam to prop it up. Once that has been squished down by having a heavy person stand on it, it deforms and no longer supports the this plastic. You can tell when you stand in the shower that the floor isn't solid; it has too much give and feels kind of soft underfoot - most disconcerting. Apparently, I can look forward to the floor pan cracking - sooner rather than later, if I'm not careful! So, beware! Avoid! Get the genuine MAAX article if you can find it! That way, you can be sure to get a high quality floor pan that will last and feel solid.

    Hello, I bought this and have the base down on the concrete in my basement, when I stand on it, it creaks, is this supposed to happen? From the reviews it seems as if this is a  reoccurring issue. I have already thrown out the box and screwed to the wall.

    Asked by: Tracy
    You need to apply a layer of thin set mortar under the base.  The mortar will level the floor so that all of the bade is in contact with the floor.  I did this to my installation and have no creaking.
