Default fixing a shower tray on floorboards

Hi can I fix a shower tray directly onto floorboards? Previously I
have used cement to bed a tray onto Marine Ply but in this case I
would like to fix it directly to the floorboards as they will be my
finished flooring. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Is there
any specific type of shower tray I need to consider? Thanks

I've just bought one of these which might fit your requirements:

Haven't fitted the thing yet, so can't comment on practicalities, though
it looks well made etc

Fitted one of these a couple of years ago to Chipboard floor direct as
a replacement. It turns out lower than it looks and so far no
problems. The legs seem quite chunky, but I think I added a further
support from the old tray to the middle.

I like the pictures on that page where they show the difference
between sawing "Coram rigid panels" and "Flimsy plastic panels". Can
you see what they did there? Hilarious.

I can see the attraction, but bear in mind that as you get older, or
want to sell the house to someone older you may well regret having such
a high step.

It'd be no use in this house, for a start!

Thanks guys. I've seen a shower enclosure which suits my needs and I
think the tray may solve the problem. Could you have a look at this
link and let my know what you think? Thanks Victoria

Well given that in my case the shower's upstairs, and since the step up
into the shower's going to be no higher than those on the staircase,
that shouldn't be an issue! TBH I'll be happy to be able to access the
gubbins underneath the tray for maintenance purposes etc.
