1916 Collection, part of L.R. Brands, an Oatey innovation, has launched its Freestanding Tub Drain, which makes it easier, faster and simpler to install a freestanding tub. The drain is the first product announced as part of 1916 Collection, a carefully curated portfolio of thoughtfully designed, exceptionally engineered bath accessories.
1916 Collection Universal Freestanding Tub Drain works with freestanding, island center or offset tubs. When installed at rough-in, it provides simple installation between the P-trap and tub – without needing access from below the floor. The drain’s compact size allows it to fit inside 8-, 10- and 12-inch joists; it also fits inside a 4-inch hole saw opening, which makes it a great choice for remodels.
Available in ABS, PVC or cast iron with a plastic or stainless-steel flange, this drain is compatible with brass or Schedule 40 tailpieces. It also comes job-site ready, with a pre-installed, tool-free quarter-turn test plug that allows for testing up to 40 feet of head. In addition, an easy-to-grab protective cap keeps tile from being installed over the open drain, and the cap can easily be removed with channel locks.
