Maax offers leading edge design for bathroom tub

and shower products. This includes budget friendly

fiberglass tub and shower units to high quality acrylic

tubs and showers. Using the vast selection of products

from Maax available at Kitchen & Bath

Classics you can meet with one of our Expert®

staff and they will help you choose the perfect tub or

shower to fi t in your home.

If you want the look of tile without the labour involved,

Maax Utile is a new polymer innovation available at

Kitchen & Bath Classics and offers an easy

installation with many configurations of design. The

walls and bases have beautiful designs printed on

them with a rough or smooth fi nish to mimic the look

of tile or stone with a quick installation. The walls

and base are easy to clean and grout free. The walls

are ordered with a base to create a shower unit in

sizes varying from 48-60 for width. The Maax Rubix

tub and the Exhibit tub both work with the Utile

and combine to create an easy clean tub and shower

combination. You can pick from many different wall

designs and mix and match them to create a customizable

look. Some of the patterns include Factory,

Marble, Erosion, and wall paper designs like Hexa

and Funky for the showers and Organik and Marble

for the tub otions. These wall designs are simple

to complex, and modern to more traditional. There

is a beautiful glass shelf that comes with the Utile

choice and then you can add more corner shelving

if needed. There is also an option to add grab bars;

you just need to reinforce the wall from behind to support

them. The Utile shower layouts are available in

a corner or alcove style. The doors available are the

Reveal, Halo and Modular offering up several finishes

for framing with a clear glass to show off your spectacular

wall design choices. Some of the designs for

patterns include Hexa Wallpaper, Erosion, Factory,

Marble and Organik. Utile goes right up against the

studs and under your drywall creating a strong and

beautiful shower, once assembled.

Maax also makes the ModulR combo series with separate

tub and shower units placed beside each other

for a built in look. One of the layout options includes

a linear design with the tub at one end and the shower

at the other in a straight line. You can also order it as

an Angular configuration with the shower on one wall

and the tub up against it on the side wall, creating an

“L” shape. The Combo compact configuration also

has an “L” shape design with a slightly different layout.

A forth option is the Wet room configuration with

the tub fi rst along the wall, and the shower in front of

it, so you step through it to get to the tub. With these

Maax ModulR options you would need to finish the

walls with tile or stone.


Maax has premier acrylic tubs and showers in 1pc

units and sectional units, drop-in, freestanding and

alcove tubs to fi t every design layout. Come and visit

with our Kitchen & Bath design Experts® to explore

the perfect tub or shower for your home whether

available on some of the freestanding tubs as

an accent, giving an interesting look. The Maax Optik

freestanding tub comes with a skirt available in white,

glacial blue, pink martini, thunder grey, sterling silver

and black. The Maax Sax freestanding tub offers a

skirt available in white, platinum grey, aqua and ruby.
