What waste and trap system do you recommend for a StoneKAST bath?

Every StoneKAST bath comes complete with a UK standard Chrome waste.

The correct trap to use with StoneKAST baths that will conform to current building regulations is the McAlpine SM10 trap, which has a 50mm water seal (Current building regulations state the minimum depth seal for traps should not be less than 38mm).
You will also need a McAlpine T12A-2 Extension, which is a two inch extension piece (which must be fitted directly onto the waste of the bath so that the trap does now become obstructed by the bottom of the bath).
StoneKAST would always recommend that a flexible hose is fitted between the outlet side of the trap and the domestic waste to allow the bath to be removed with ease if necessary.

Will my floor be suitable for a StoneKAST bath?

A StoneKAST bath must be installed onto a solid, level surface that will not allow any movement, if you are unsure that your floor will be suitable we would recommend that you seek advice from a structural engineer.

All StoneKAST baths have a raised void which will reduce the depth required to accommodate a trap, however in most cases the trap will petrude up to 60mm below the bottom of the bath so please ensure you are able to channel into the floor prior to purchase, and that the pipework connected to the trap can run underneath the floor. Please note that StoneKAST baths do come with a chrome slotted waste as standard however traps and additional pipework must be either supplied by your installer or purchased separately, to conform to new building regulations we would recommend a McAlpine SM10 Trap to be used in conjunction with a T12A-2 extension piece.

Does a StoneKAST Bath retain heat well?

A StoneKast stone bath will retain heat much better than a steel or acrylic bath due to the heat insulating properties of the materials used and the thickness of the walls.

Limestone which is the main ingredient of the StoneKAST blend, can withhold working temperatures of up to 355 C as opposed to 50 C of acrylic, has a thermal shock resistance 5 times that of acrylic, and conducts (therefore retains) heat at almost ten times the rate of acrylic. The compressive strength of acrylic is 80 MPa compared with 700MPa of limestone.

Will pipe work need to go into the floor?

All StoneKAST baths have a raised void which will reduce the depth in the floor required to accommodate a trap, however in most cases the trap will petrude up to 70mm below the bottom of the bath so please ensure you are able to channel into the floor and that no underfloor heating has or will be installed directly below the base of the bath prior to purchase.
Please note that StoneKAST baths do come with a chrome slotted waste as standard however traps and additional pipework must be either supplied by your installer or purchased separately. To conform to new building regulations we would recommend a McAlpine SM10 Trap to be used in conjunction with a T12A-2 extension piece.
