Sustainability is not a new concept at wedi, it is in fact embedded into the core of the business, but the brand continues to explore new strategies to reduce and recycle.
wedi has always understood the importance of supporting sustainability through innovation, and is already well known for its innovative solutions for showers and bathrooms, but perhaps it is less known that wedi is a certified EcoProfit operation and has been for almost 16 years.
The brand’s responsibility to people and the environment is second to none in the construction industry and especially amongst XPS manufacturers.
Manufactured with at least 25% recycled foam material and 100% renewable/green energy, wedi building boards as well as wedi Fundo shower systems have their own Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) confirming their environmental footprint throughout their entire lifecycle, making sustainable bathroom construction all the more easier.
However, wedi’s precision engineered XPS solutions are not only eco-friendly, 100% waterproof to their core and have the best thermal (0.036 W/mK) and vertical loadbearing (133 kg/m2) properties amongst foam tile backers. They also produce a small amount of non-hazardous dust when worked on, therefore contributing to a healthier working environment on the construction site.
The good thing about wedi is the brand offers so many individual product variants that it’s always possible to find a solution. Behind every product, there is mindfulness & craftsmanship – thanks to their modular design, perfectly coordinated wedi components allow for unlimited freedom in design while providing an all-round protection against mould and fungi both at substrate and now also at surface level.
wedi’s newest product line of seamless Top design surfaces is comprising minimalism and environmental awareness – as groutless, ready-to-use design elements, they do not only provide a sleek, modern finish but are made of a unique mineral composite: a mixture of 50% resin and 50% stone powder derived of recycled materials – meaning that they can be fully recycled at the end of their life. What makes the wedi Top Line stand out even further, is that these surfaces have a pleasantly warm feel representing underfoot comfort and thermal insulation equipped with slip-resistance and antibacterial protection.
Furthermore, the wedi range is characterised by its products’ extremely light weight paired with straightforward and fast installation – cutting back on labour and time, and at the same time, offering unrivalled system security.
As an innovation driver in the construction industry for bathrooms and wet rooms, the brand continues to develop its range and improve the products, while remaining true to the guiding principles that started its sustainable journey.
