If necessary, the shower tray can protrude slightly from the floor. However, you can also choose a shower tray with a large inner depth - the way it used to be.

There are also different levels of slip resistance. If small children are in the house or if you are a little older and less stable, shower trays with particularly high slip resistance are recommended.
