Wetrooms and Waterproofing
Offering a stylish finish, with a distinct air of quality, tiles and natural stone are the ideal pairing to a wetroom. On their own, however, they do not constitute a waterproof finish; these materials, and to an even greater extent the grout often used alongside them, are merely water-resistant.
In order to achieve a waterproof result, tiles and natural stone require support behind the scenes. This comes in the form of waterproof membranes and backerboards, which when properly installed prevent water ingress for the lifetime of the installation.
Inadequate waterproofing in bathrooms and wetrooms can spell disaster, not only for the room in question but also the building as a whole. Schlüter-Systems offers integrated waterproofing and wetroom systems to protect your projects. Our solutions for this area ensure you achieve functional spaces that show off designs to best effect.
Within our range you’ll find everything you need to specify a fully waterproof wetroom solution, including:
• Tanking membranes and backerboards
• Drainage systems
• Drain grates
• Adhesives, bands and fastenings
• Ancillary products
