"Vikrell " Tub and wall products
Posted by Bam on June 03, 1999 at 00:52:54:
We are in the process of removing our original installed 1950's-era built-in iron tub. We wanted to put in a gorgeous new bath bay, but because of sizing of doors in house, could not.

We were shown an alternative product (this one happens to be put out by Sterling--A Kohler subsidiary I think) made of "Vikrell." (some kind of composite plastic or fiber I guess). It consists of the tub and three-locking plates, that form a bay-type tub.

1. Is anyone familiar with this product/durability.

2. Can this be mounted directly onto the studs (I was given three different answers from three different salesmen) It does appear tight and sturdy enough.

Please let me know (e-mail or followup post). Thanks!
