wedi provides CE backed waterproof wet room solution for Lon

wedi systems UK has been chosen by ‘What House Awards Sustainable Developer of the Year’ Linden Homes to provide a total wet room solution service for one of their latest developments at Century Gate, Beckenham, Kent. The development consists of a range of beautiful of 3,4 and 5 bedroom detached family homes for which wedi worked alongside Linden Homes from initial wet room design, to complete installation guidance and support ensuring the ideal wet room solution to meet the developer’s needs.

The 20mm thick, floor level Fundo Ligno shower tray, accompanied with wedi building boards on the walls, created a totally secure CE backed waterproof system, which has now been used on other Linden Homes developments.

The wedi solution provided much more than just a CE marked wet room system but also ensured that the contractors were supported and trained with wedi’s own NCFE backed installation program. wedi continued to support 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.

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 anything, 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
All Fundo shower bases are produced from the impermeable wedi building board and with a high performance capacity drain, allowing for the most powerful showers to be incorporated into the overall design, and enhancing the user experience.

wedi floor level shower trays, boards, and customised elements can all be combined together to achieve an end result which is a tried and tested system with the high level of quality and performance that specifiers and installers have come to expect from wedi.
