Our objective with the M-Block™ flange was to have the finished shower niche become part of the shower membrane system.

Redblock Industries today announces an innovation in shower waterproofing, the M-Block™ mounting flange. It is a mounting system that is incorporated into its shower niche products to help installers create a leak proof shower. With the M-Block™ flange, Redblock has created a shower storage fixture designed to solve a growing problem of leaking tiled shower niches.
The Redblock M-Block™ flange will work with the shower waterproofing membrane to create an uninterrupted barrier against water infiltration, preventing mold growth and other leak issues. The M-Block™ flange is used for mounting on all Redblock niche products but also integrates with its tile border flange; an attractive stainless steel edge for tile work. This saves the time and labor required to install tile edge trim around the shower niche; a notoriously meticulous task. And since the entire Redblock niche is finished with brushed stainless steel, it saves tiling inside the niche and provides a finish that is complimentary to existing fixtures. The M-Block™ flange and the entire niche are constructed as a welded uni-body unit; using the same techniques and materials as are used to produce a stainless steel sink, so they are incredibly sturdy and immune to water infiltration.
Steve Gehrmann, remodelling pro with SKG Renovations and designer of the Redblock niche had this to say:
"Our objective with the M-Block™ flange was to have the finished shower niche become part of the shower membrane system." "We felt that this was a missing piece of the puzzle in creating a fully waterproof shower."
In his experience with SKG Renovations, Steve noticed an increasing number of tiled shower niches that are incorrectly waterproofed. This was the basis for the development of a shower niche fixture with waterproofing built in; the Redblock shower niche with the M-Block™ flange. A fixture that can be easily installed to be watertight, with less chance for error by the installer.
