AC Products Recessed Ceramic Shower Caddy Niches

The recessed shower caddies come in 3 models. The BR797 is the taller more slender caddy, designed for a couple of small to mid size bottles in the top compartment and a bar of soap in the lower compartment. This caddy has been available for a long time and does come in the colors remaining in our stock and now noted for each item. Select the color choice and what we show in stock will be displayed after the color name.

Then the BR791 single compartment and BR793 triple compartment are large caddies. About 13" x 13". Both can hold a lot more. These two caddies have been available for a few years now, yet AC Products is still keeping them exclusive to being available only in limited standard gloss and matte colors. And then three of the stoneware colors. (BUT NOW, ONLY THE COLORS WE HAVE LEFT IN STOCK.)

Additional important info follows after the pictures.

Now, the Scoop on AC Products. Yes, they are out of business, as of November, 2022. They announced it, halted production, and only sold off what they had had currently made. We were a "little" lucky. We were able to stock up on some towel bars, TP holders, shower caddies and a few other items. This note is now updated as of Feb. 17, 2023. Stock is selling off. There are some holes already for the items we normally kept in our stock, primarily the 700 Series and 900 Series. We are noting in the product "select your color" drop down menus as to how many of each item we have left in each color. And we have erased options for items that are completely gone. Updating it pretty much every other day. We still have a fair amount of stock on hand. But when it comes to all those wonderful colors, they are pretty much gone. We will continue to sell what we have until it completely runs out. We still offer Lenape Bath Hardware, and hope to find a source to re-invent some of what AC Products had offered. Many of our AC Products web pages still have a lot of older info. This note supercedes everything....

Stock and Lead times:

This note has been updated. We have offered AC Products since 2009. But in Nov. 2022, they went out of business. So lead time now is, whatever we have in stock is all we have. Thus all orders for remaining items will ship right away from our location here in Florida.

About dimensions, flanges, and other important info

Please take note of the overall dimensions and the cutout measurements we have shown below. Since the two larger caddies fit into a 12x12 hole that should be around 3-3/4" deep, you really need to plan your placement well. On a new or fully remodeled bathroom, you will see what is in your walls beforehand and know if any obstructions exist. But, on a finished bathroom that you are thinking about cutting a hole in the wall and installing a caddy, you do need to be aware of potential electrical wires, plumbing, and studs in the wall. They could inhibit your perfect placement and force you to shift left or right, or up or down. Sometimes horizontal braces are found in the wall between studs. So if you have a way to check what is in your wall before cutting, that would be advised.

Be aware that bathroom walls which are an exterior wall of the house may also create some challenges, such as concrete block that you might have to cut into.

Each of the three choices has a flange all the way around its front perimeter and that overlaps your cut out. This gives a nice framed look on the face of your tile and conceals any jagged tile edges. Professionals will lay the caddy into a mud pack in the wall, aligning it level left to right, and level on its front to back axis. The wall cavity can also be framed and then a high quality adhesive caulk can hold the caddies in place. It is important that the caddies are supported within the wall surface and NOT just glued to the edges of the hole by their flanges. The BR797 weighs about 4 pounds. But the other two weight 10 to 11 pounds each. They are quite heavy for ceramic. So you want them adhered into your wall, and not just by the flange perimeter.

The extended photos when clicking on the pictures below will show you the back sides of the caddies.

Our ceramic bathroom hardware is available to everyone, homeowners and contractors. For hotel renovators or commercial customers who require larger volume of items, we do offer volume discount. Please e-mail us with your requirements.

Clicking or tapping on any of the 6 images above will allow you to see expanded photos of the back sides. We decided to show the 900 Series shower caddies on this page also. They are the same shower caddy. The 7 in the part number just changes to a 9 to denote the stoneware colors. The stoneware caddies are also shown on the 900 Series page as well as the recessed bath hardware recap page.

To view images of all the ceramic color choices, please select that link.

AC Products also publishes a color cross reference chart of how their colors coincide with some popular brand colors. If you know your tile brand and color code, you can see if there is a reference in that chart. There use to be over 140 color choices, now that has been reduced to around 80ish. Some colors are just way out of date and not as popular anymore. Keeping glaze made in obsolete colors just does not work. Glaze dries out over the years and becomes unuseable. So some colors just have to be deleted.

Then we have a third help page set up for colors. It will be limiting for help with the BR791 an BR793 caddies since they are restricted to the standard color options only. Color comparing and selection help page. It has group photos of the whites, and other tones. It can help with choices for the BR797 caddy. Just note that all the nice greys, browns, and others are not available for the two larger caddies.

What can each caddy hold?

One choice, four mounting methods
Six choices, multiple mounting methods
Seven choices, multiple mounting methods
Three choices, multiple mounting methods
One design, three mounting methods
One design, three mounting methods
Three designs, all fully recessed
Each of these thumbnails represents a whole lot more to see on each page. Every item in the Stylish 700 Series is available in approx. 80 colors, with the exception of the two huge shower caddies and a couple of specialty corner shelves. Review each page for product desriptions and measurements. You can order from any of the product pages. Phone orders are also accepted.

700 Stylish Series review:

The Stylish 700 Series is large. We have divided it upon several pages. For a complete summary, view the Stylish 700 summary page

For a quick overview of the 700 Series towel bars, soap dishes, corner shelves and more, you can select from the above thumbnail images.

If you are looking for these same items in the stoneware colors, shower caddies are shown on this page and the recessed bath hardware page. Then the entire 900 stoneware series is shown collectively on its own page.

This ceramic bath hardware was MADE IN THE U.S.A.

For one of our blog posts that explains the Stylish 700 Series showing the whole collection together, please see this web page:

It shows the collection in black, because black is the second most popular color after white. It will pertain the same to most all colors. The majority of the 700 Series comes in almost 80 colors. Some corner shelves and shower caddies have restrictions on color choices. But overall, there are a heck of a lot of choices....
