In September 2012 Impey launched the EasyFit wetroom floor former, which is designed and manufactured in Britain. Five years on, the company says that this revolutionary floor-former has changed that way that wetrooms are built and specified throughout the industry.
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of EasyFit’s launch, Impey has released a new installation video that demonstrates just why EasyFit provides installers with a floor former of unsurpassed strength, a 100% consistent gradient for drainage, the ability to trim for bespoke situations and a lifetime guarantee.The team at Impey are wetroom experts, offering a portfolio of wetroom solutions that facilitate simple installation, durability and longevity.
The pivotal change in the design of the popular EasyFit floor former was the introduction of a unique rotating drainplate. This allows quick and easy avoidance of underfloor obstructions.
During the wetroom installation process, lifting the floor can reveal a multitude of complications: double joists, gas pipes, electrical cables and other unexpected obstacles; all of which can hinder wetroom installations of floor formers with a fixed-position waste. The rotating function of the EasyFit’s drainplate simply circumvents any unwanted underfloor obstructions and, typically, saves at least half a day of installation time. This ground-breaking leap in design, realised by the Impey R&D team at the company’s Somerset HQ, cemented Impey as market leaders.
The EasyFit floor-former, which is known for its superior strength and rigidity, is manufactured with high glass content, using the SMC compression moulding process.
At just 22mm thick (equivalent to a standard floor board), EasyFit is designed to be placed straight onto joists and can easily withstand weights of 300kg, with no need for underboarding.
Many installers have taken part in Impey’s We Are Wetrooms Training Tour, which is continuing throughout 2017.
In addition, to celebrate five-years of EasyFit success, Impey has launched a new installation video, which demonstrates how to correctly install the EasyFit dec.
John Blackburn, Impey’s Managing Director, says: “Our EasyFit dec is an advanced and re-engineered evolution of the original handmade Impey dec. As the product has evolved over the years, so has the manufacturing process. Today our SMC compression moulded EasyFit dec is not only renowned for its simple installation benefits but also for its structural integrity, strength and performance. The feedback from our customers confirms that EasyFit continues to be the favoured choice when it comes to wetroom solutions.”
Joe Mühl, Sales and Technical Director of Ocean Bathrooms, comments: “Feedback from installers is that EasyFit is their favourite. It is very easy to install, adapts to its surroundings and is a very strong product. Impey is a trusted brand and offers a great technical service.”
Tiler and installer Andy Carroll states: “Impey is a very progressive brand and the products are designed to make the installer’s life easier. The rotating trap on the EasyFit floor former is a huge timer save and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Impey products to other installers and tilers.”
Gary Nutting, Creative Director of Wave Bathrooms, says: “Impey products are innovative and the EasyFit’s rotating waste system means your installer is always sure to avoid hitting a joist or steel in the floor.”
