Now entering its fifth successful year, the Impey We Are Wetrooms installation training tour has welcomed over 1,000 installers, retailers, plumbers, and tilers.
Once again throughout 2020 the specialist wetroom training event will tour nine locations, giving eager learners the opportunity to develop or expand their wetroom fitting expertise; and booking is now open!
Understanding how to fit, waterproof and tile a wetroom are essential skills in today’s bathroom sector. The value of the wetrooms market has experienced good growth since 2014, and continues to offer significant growth potential in the UK bathroom market. It is estimated that around 6% of UK homes now have a wetroom installation.
In 2018, the value of the wetroom market was estimated at £92 million at manufacturers’ selling prices (MSP). This represents an increase of over 16% over the last five years.
Impey’s We Are Wetrooms UK training tour was launched in 2016 to meet prevalent demand for educational, ‘hands-on’ wetroom installation training. Following four-years of sell-out dates, increasing numbers of installers are keen to benefit from the opportunities afforded from wetroom installation.
The We Are Wetrooms tour 2020 kicks off in March, combining extensive training on all Impey’s market-leading wetroom solutions including the award-winning Aqua-Dec EasyFit and Aqua-Dec Linear floor formers, recognised as the leading and most reliable wetroom solutions on the market.
Also covered as part of the training day is the installation of Impey’s Waterguard tanking solution, and the Aqua-Grade and Aqua-Grade Linear screed templates for new pour concrete floors. New for 2020, a spotlight on pumped waste options includes information, training and demos from Whale Pumps.
Lead by Shaun Hunt, Technical Field Manager, with over 20 years’ experience in the sector, the training day incorporates:
