No, it mans that the acrylic 'cap' layer has a polyester resin and stone
backing to give strength and durability, whereas a basic acrylic shower tray
has an acrylic 'cap' layer backed with sprayed-on glass reinforced plastic.
So they all have an acrylic cap but I think you are asking about acrylic
capped stone resin shower trays.
They use a stone resin to make the tray, then cap it with a moulded on layer
of acrylic .... the former gives rigidity and strength and the latter the
pretty finish & easy of cleaning (also any colour they want)
I have 3 x acrylic capped trays from Just Trays ...... BTW - most of the big
name shower companies who charge the debt of a small country for their trays
... actually have them made by Just Trays.
The only issue is that stone trays are VERY heavy, the largest I bought was
a 3 man lift, but it ain't ever going to warp !
I lifted my huge one easily with two..and managed to fit it singlehandedly.
Only around 50kg.
When I were a lad the coalman would deliver 1cwt sacks - up to twenty at
a time - from the coal lorry.
45kg. You aren't allowed to lift more than 35kg these days.,
