Lenape’s Small Bone Ceramic Shower Shelf is designed to fit in the space-constrained tiled corner of your shower or tub. It conveniently holds soap, shampoo and other sundry items. The bone corner shelf is glazed ceramic fired to 2120°F and is impermeable to water and stains. Because it is high-fired the small bone ceramic shower shelf is a snap to clean with a damp cloth or sponge. Furthermore, it will never rust, corrode or tarnish!
The bone color not only coordinates with bone almond tiles but also harmonizes well with many natural stone products. In addition to bone a small white ceramic shower shelf is available.
The small ceramic shower shelf is installed using a tiled grout in, thin set installation. Complete instructions are provided in ProSeries Product Installation.

Questions and Answers
Q: How is the corner shelf attached to the wall?
A: The corner shower shelf is designed to be attached to the wall with the same non-sanded thin-set mortar used to attach the tile or stone to the wall.
A section of the tile or stone measuring approximately 2 1/8″L (Vertical) x 6 1/8″W (Horizontal) x 5/16″D is removed from the wall. This is normally done when the stone or tile is being installed. Be sure to first dry fit the corner shelf to the wall making sure it fits properly. Using non-sanded thin-set mortar used for the tile or stone application apply a generous amount of the mortar to the back of the shelf. Firmly press the shelf against the wall. Mortar may squeeze out the joint. Hold the shelf with one hand and wipe off the excess mortar with a damp sponge. Apply a good quality waterproof caulk to the joint.
