The total waterproof system for walls and floors in wet rooms

For many years wedi has pioneered the market for “tilebacker boards’ and now the manufacturer is leading the way with a waterproof kit for wet room walls and floors, in essence, the total waterproof system. The wedi sealing system combination of wedi building boards used in conjunction with wedi Fundo floor-level showers is endorsed with European Technical Approval (ETA) and carries the
CE mark.

So for wet areas, specifiers, developers and installers can rest assured on the wedi system, which is backed by the manufacturers guarantee and 10 year system warranty. Why would you take the risk of specifying or installing products, which can’t offer you the same assurances for the whole wall to floor system?

Fundo Ligno

When it comes to timber floors wedi, has developed the perfect solution in the wedi Fundo Ligno shower element. The floor level shower element at just 20mm thick is a true problem-solver in the renovation of existing buildings where every millimetre counts. In contrast to traditional shower elements, Fundo Ligno can be integrated flush into the existing timber floor – without building up any additional height or the need for time consuming levelling measures. The Ligno element is sealed to the adjoining floor using wedi Fundo sealing set. When installing on top of floorboards, should the height on site need adjusting, the appropriate wedi building boards can be used alongside Ligno and then sealed with wedi 610 sealant.

wedi Fundo Ligno Shower Element benefits:

  • 20mm thick floor element suitable for flush mounting in timber floors
  • 100% waterproof system – wedi offers a guarantee on this
  • Pre-fabricated slope – offers optimum tiling and surface drainage
  • Wheelchair accessibility is built-in
  • Available in a range of sizes and drain options to suit most applications
  • Light weight – minimal floor load bearing requirements

wedi in practice: from developer to installer

The success of the wedi system has been at the core of best practice bathroom and wet rooms design and installation for many years. In supporting the growing demand for new housing wedi works in partnership alongside architects and housing developers from initial wet room design, to complete installation guidance ensuring the ideal wet room solution to meet the developer’s needs.

For award winning developer Linden Homes wedi provides a total wet room solution service. An example of wedi in practice was demonstrated on one of the latest developments for Linden Homes at Century Gate, Beckenham, Kent. wedi floor level Fundo Ligno shower trays, accompanied with wedi building boards on the walls, created a totally secure CE backed waterproof system, which is now being used on other Linden Homes developments.

wedi in practice on the Century Gate project was about offering much more than just a CE approved wet room system, but also ensuring that the contractors were supported and trained with wedi’s own NCFE backed installation program. wedi provided Linden Homes with a dedicated wedi Application Engineer attending site on the first few installations until both the contractor and developer were comfortable with all procedures providing total peace of mind in both the product system and installation.

Wedi Solso takes care of PVC on shower floors

Wedi

wedi has launched a floor-level shower system developed especially for PVC coverings. wedi Solso is the unrivalled shower floor system for wet areas in hospitals and private and public care home facilities.

The wedi Solso comes from the factory as a fully integrated sealed drainage unit, which allows the PVC surface to be easily connected directly to the drainage system and is 100% water-proof. This means that there is no chance of any water flowing backwards (for example, if the pipe is blocked) and seeping under the PVC.

As a result of its incredibly strong stability and ability to bear heavy loads, wedi Solso is suitable for very high pressure point loads. With 2.5 N/mm2, this system enables e.g. trouble-free use of wheelchairs, Zimmer frames, etc., in hospital and care facility shower systems.

wedi Solso comes with an inbuilt uniform fall, which makes laying floor coverings much easier and optimises surface drainage. In addition, the complete system is supplied with factory fitted integrated drain technology to guarantee reliability and consistency during installation. The wedi system provides a tried and tested solution with guaranteed 100% water tightness.
