    Overview

    Model # 106556-000-001-000 Store SKU # 1001187879

    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 one glass shelf
    1. Mistake-proof ULOK installation system allows you to perfectly align the walls, slip them together and lock them into place

    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 4 out of 5 by from Looks very good Finally got help to install from a contractor friend and job completed 2 weeks ago. All is in place and looks very good. However noticed some cracks in upper left side of left wall. See photo. What is the reason for this and how can it be fixed?

    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 Works great It feels stronger than the white thin product that we had up before. My only complaint is the edges because they are not finished, we had to get creative.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Last year we did a Reno on our en-suite. Our contractor decided to pick this shower base as the one we had ordered had not come in on time. In less than 6 months there’s a crack in the base. Lots of play in the base as well since install. So now in order to fix we’d have to remove glass shower walls and door as well as tiles on the wall. It will ultimately cost us as much to fix as it was to put it there and then there’s the mess and inconvenience of a tear up. Very disappointing. The replacement and repair should be covered....with a better product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from extremely disappointed I bought this shower pan and had it installed by a professional in a new tiled bathroom that we built. We have been using the shower for less than two months and the shower pan has cracked in two different place. Do not buy this product, it does not even come close to living up to the description.

    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.
