History of wet room showers
Wet Rooms and Wet floor showers are a relatively old concept in parts of
Europe, but fears of leaks and problems with floor construction have
historically met with a cool reception in the UK. But all that is changing.
With the advent of
wet room floor formers
and waterproof tanking systems it is so easy to let your creativity flow in the full knowledge
that the systems available won't let you down. Enjoy that minimalist style
knowing that your waterproof tanking system is taking care of business.
Benefits of a wet room
So why have a wet room?
A wet room is much more versatile than a shower cubicle or enclosure.
Not only do you have more scope when designing your bathroom, but access
is vastly improved. Wet room showers not only look great but they also
offer very practical level access (a huge bonus to persons with special
needs) and a particularly spacious appearance in any shower area. The wet
room concept allows the showering area to blend naturally with the rest
of the room and can be screened or left open - the choice is yours!
Products to build a wet room shower
Using a specialist floor former overcomes the biggest challenge of
creating a wet room - creating the correct fall. A floor former
establishes a perfect slope towards the waste outlet, removing this
often difficult technical challenge. Furthermore, a floor former is
invariably stronger than the area of floor it replaces so structural
integrity will actually be improved. Used in conjunction with the
the wet area can get wet whilst the rest of the building stays totally
dry. It really has become that simple. The following range of products
will help you to achieve the perfect result.
Floor formers are
extremely tough. Wet room shower floor trays can take up to 40 stone of weight and
yet they are light enough to be fitted by one person.
