Here is a sneak peak at a fantastic bathroom being waterproofed and tiled by Tarkus Tile, Inc. This curbless bathroom features a new Channel Drain from ACO. Mark and his team have done an amazing job on this project and I have been a fan of his work and projects for the past year and a bit.
There are few out there right now with the expierence and skill needed to executed a barrier free shower renovation and if you live in Utah - I'd be calling Mark for a quote.

A little info off of Mark's website;
Tarkus Tile Inc. was established in 1998 by President Mark Christensen of Lehi, Utah. I have a lifetime of experience in the flooring industry and have been doing tile exclusively for the last 11 years. In today's construction world, craftsmanship is being pushed aside for quicker and cheaper methods.

Now check out this bathroom. Look closely at how well Mark tied the drains body into the floor. The tile pattern follows through the ACO drains top and I am very impressed with this project.
Can't wait for Mark's next channel drain or curbless project.
I'll find out the designer and GC on this project and I can't stress enough the importance of hiring a true "Water Proofing Specialist" for these new custom looks...
Nice work Mark!

If your planning or researching a curbless shower I encourage you to send me an email with your plan. It doesn't hurt to have multiple opinions on a job and I'm sure I can help. If your in a rush we might be able to speed up your research time as well.
ACO just launched some new version of the regular point drain and soon the matching grills will be available for these ACO linear drains. If your in the market for an ACO linear drain please send sales inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are a few more options in barrier free construction. These two videos show a rear wall installation and an entry installation. As for safety the rear wall install is my favourite but not always practical for grading.
