With the launch of the Fundo RioLigno, the thinnest linear shower element ideally suited for timber floors on the market, sophisticated wet rooms in wooden structures become a reality. wedi‘s wide range of products and system solutions provide a systemised insulation for wet areas, so there is no need to ensure compatibility of different brands or worry about security of the installation.
wedi’s subconstruction elements are 100% waterproof to the core, decoupling, have the best thermal (0.036Wm2K) and vertical weight loading capabilities (133kg/m2) amongst common tile backers on the market and can be either tiled directly onto or plastered. No additional waterproofing or heat insulation is required.
Current trend shows increased popularity of walk-in showers but when it comes to suspended timber floors, it is imperative to evaluate between different brands in order to select the best solution that ticks all boxes. wedi products are developed with practicality, versatility and functionality in mind. Uniquely, all wedi Fundo shower elements have a sealing set developed especially for the all-round sealing of their perimeters and a 360˚dry-fit drain technology that offers reassurance of their use in/on wooden floors.
For many years, wedi’s Fundo Ligno shower element with point drainage was the ultimate solution for installing walk-in shower areas in timber floors. Answering market demand, wedi recently introduced a new shower solution with linear drainage especially for suspended timber structures. Both the wedi Fundo Ligno and Fundo RioLigno shower elements fit and sit flush in the wooden flooring, without having to cut into floor joists or build up further floor height. With their outer edges of just 20mm and 25mm respectively, keeping safety in focus above everything else, both shower elements are fitted with a support plate on the underside reinforcing the area around the drain opening to provide unrivalled peace of mind within the moisture sensitive and ever moving timber floor. Furthermore, to eliminate any possibility of failure, wedi offers a drain-substructure element for wooden floor installations that guarantees reliable support and accurate aligning of the drain.
Sufficient insulation of bathroom floor and wall surfaces is also imperative, especially in wooden structures. Coupling wedi Fundo shower solutions with wedi building boards and/or wedi Subliner Dry & Flex membranes, would not only result in a CE marked walk-in shower area but would also be awarded with a full wedi system guarantee. wedi building boards are famous for their suitability to be directly bonded onto timber or metal stud frames without the need for mechanical fixing – with the elimination of laborious sealing measures over penetrations, they save time and offer further safety. wedi’s Subliner range, as a complement to wedi building boards, is renowned for its reliability in waterproofing and/or decoupling of bathroom walls and floors.
Simple, safe, functional – this is wedi.
