UK - Iwan Thomas MBE champions wedi for wet rooms

Iwan Thomas one of Britain’s finest record-breaking 400m runners and former Gold medal winner has chosen wedi to create the wet rooms for his stylish home. Iwan, no stranger to high performance wanted a high class creative design combined with the assurance of high quality performance.

Two solutions from wedi’s unique creative waterproof systems were selected. The first option was the spiral Fundo Nautilo which comes as a complete, ready to install kit, including wall sections, base, and drain. All Fundo shower bases are produced from impermeable wedi building board with a pre-set fall from the outer edges to the drain position and are supplied with high performance capacity drains, allowing for the most powerful showers.

A second shower system was created using the wedi Sanbath Cube shower unit incorporating a stylish and contemporary L-shaped design. The Sanbath series includes showers, wash stands, sinks and bathtubs – all ready to tile and equipped with preinstalled piping and/or drains. The shower units include Hansgrohe’s revolutionary I-Box. Iwan commented “wedi is in a class of its own, and offered the creativity to create an attractive personalised look whilst achieving a high quality finish to my wet rooms and provides me with total peace of mind for many years to come.”
