Brief guide to looking after resin shower trays

How to take care of shower trays in Tecnogel, Solidgel, Corian and Aquatek.

Attentive cleaning and maintenance of your resin shower tray will keep it hygienic and looking good for a long time. Follow our instructions and watch the video at the end of this post to see how to avoid errors that risk damaging the surface.

Although modern shower trays may look practically the same, they come in different materials. If you are reading this post, you’ve probably bought a resin shower tray or are seeking information to help you make an informed decision before purchasing.

Because each type of material needs special attention, it is essential to know the exact name and composition of the product you choose: if the tray is already installed, read (and keep) the instructions provided in the packing.

If you no longer have the packing or have not yet purchased your shower tray, the Disenia website provides tips for each product, easily downloaded from ‘Assembly and Maintenance Instructions’.

Tecnogel and Solidgel are similar materials, made up of natural mineral fillings and polyester resins from recycled PET, coated in gelcoat*, which is easily repaired if the surface is damaged. Follow our advice to keep them looking good over time:

  • Every day cleaning > use a cotton or microfibre cloth, or a non-abrasive pad with mild detergent and warm water
  • Stain removal > use a laundry brush to apply a solution with warm water and 50% vinegar
