Install one in the bathroom of Handyman Towers - never installed a
shower tray before.
Stone type tray with 5 adjustable feet, but no method of attaching feet
to floor - like on a bath, and no method of attaching tray to walls, so
it doesn't walk about.
I seems pretty stable, but I'm going to make up some brackets to fix it
in place anyway - but is it normal for them not to be fixed?

I've got both types at home, both of which I installed myself (see my
other post) and if you didn't root around underneath the tray, you
genuinely would never know that the 'stone type' one is any different to
the kosher stone resin one. (This is a Coram branded one - would
reccommend it unreservedly. Infinitely easier to install.)
Is it a Coram (the only model like this I've come across)? The one I
fitted here a year or so back definitely has provision in that the feet
have holes in through which you can screw them to the floor; and it has
a tiling upstand on three sides, which, once it's been tiled in, ensure
it can't go walkabout.
Certainly the Coram one does - brilliant thing - not sure that it's
stone resin as such, but it's certainly along those lines (ie it's not a
floppy plastic affair)
I fitted 3 stone shower trays in my place .... as I wanted access to a
trap underneath .. I built a 4 x 2 frame with 3/4" ply deck.
Then used a semi dry mix to bed shower trays onto this ... solid and stable.
I would never again install a tray on feet ... they are a problem long term.
Just posted about bedding trays on semi dry.
Neighbour decide to fix his down with expanding foam .... bad move it
expanded (name gives it away) and the thing was pushed out of level so
much water moved away from waste.
Also some manufacturers (mine did) specified semi-dry, and use of
anything else would invalidate guarantee.
