Success for Impey Showers at PHEX Chelsea

Wetroom specialist Impey Showers expanded its presence at PHEX this year, exhibiting at 6 PHEX shows across the country, finishing 2013 at PHEX Chelsea on 13th and 14th November.

Exhibiting at PHEX has enabled Impey to not only introduce its latest range of products, but also communicate its core message face-to-face with installers; that Impey wetroom installation is a simple, efficient and fuss-free process.

On display at PHEX Chelsea was EasyFit; a revolutionary concept for wetroom design.

Impey’s in-house research and development team has constructed the most rigid floor former currently available on the wetroom market, supporting over 300kg (47 stone) without the need for under boarding. Yet, despite being extremely strong and durable, the Aqua-Dec EasyFit floor former remains incredibly light to handle. To make for an even easier installation, EasyFit features a patent protected rotating drain centre, allowing obstructing joists and pipework to be easily avoided should they interfere with the drain aperture.

Also on show was Impey’s new tanking membrane, Waterguard. Unlike bitumen-based waterproofing products, Waterguard consists of a Copolymer based sheet that is highly chemical resistant and can be used with epoxy grout and solvent based sealers without any risk of a reaction. It also has crack bridging properties of up to 5mm. Quick and easy to install, the membrane has a self-adhesive backing to save on drying time and it is supplied with pre-manufactured internal and external corners.

In addition, Impey also showcased one of its latest pioneering floor- former designs, Aqua-Grade; a quick, easy and convenient alternative to creating the perfect gradient for new pour solid floors. Aqua-Grade is an effective tool that provides installers with both

knowledge and confidence to fit a wetroom in any environment easily. Its matrix design is formed of colour coded modular sections that are clicked into place and then filled with screed.

Neil Whitehead of Impey Showers said about PHEX Chelsea; “Exhibiting across 6 PHEX shows this year has been fantastic. It’s enabled us to speak to a vast number

of installers and provide them with the confidence to undertake wetroom installations because they know that it doesn’t have to be a problematic and time consuming job.”
