Bathrooms without barriers Accessible bathrooms create comfort and safety hence in recent years, installation is becoming increasingly popular in public and private bathrooms. In a Trappist monastery in Chimay, Belgium: for visitors who want to share the peace of the monks for a while, a wing of the venerable building, known as the "hostel", is always open. The old bathrooms of this wing were in need of an urgent, complete renovation due to badly worn drains and pipes. The implementation of barrier-free showers was paramount despite the sensitive wooden floor. Thanks to wedi products, builders and tilers mastered this challenge. These products can not only be installed barrier-free, but also meet all building requirements: wedi subconstruction elements protect the wooden substrate whilst the carbon black design elements of the wedi Top Line used on wall and floor surfaces maintain the ambience of the monastery.
Presenting energy efficient bathrooms The right room temperature ensures a pleasant feel-good atmosphere in the bathroom. However, especially in small bathrooms, radiators often take up important space or do not aesthetically fit into the room. wedi offers an intelligent solution for such scenarios.
wedi walls for wet rooms: stable, reliable, safe Each room has its own effect. The bathroom should, at best, be a place for rest, privacy and intimacy. Walls can have a significant role in this. As arule, they provide structure and separate the dry area from the wet area,for example. As a visual protection for the toilet or the shower, they increase the privacy and thus the comfort factor. Partition wall systems also convince functionally: whether as structures for fixing the shower door or attaching a wash basin to and/or incorporating a niche into, they fulfil their purpose in the bathroom. wedi's waterproof wall elements made of extruded polystyrene hard foam impress with their simple and fast assembly. Here's the highlight: direct bonding instead of building and/or mechanical fixing.
wedi becomes part of the ARDEX Group Emsdetten, 21 September 2021. The Witten-based construction chemicals specialist is taking up a majority shareholding in wedi GmbH, a leading manufacturer of system solutions for high-quality wet room solutions based in Emsdetten – it is the largest acquisition in the company’s history. The employees of both family-run companies have already been informed of the development. Stephan Wedi and Fabian Rechlin will remain managing directors of wedi which will be an independent company within the Ardex Group.
Fundo shower elements: Reliable, versatile and easily installed A floor-level shower is still at the top of the list of bathroom wishes for nearly a third of Germans, according to a survey by the Association of German Sanitary Industries (VDS). Functionality, reliability, quality and design are all important factors. wedi combines all these features in its range of Fundo shower elements. Whether with classic point or elegant linear drainage for tricky installation situations or with completely integrated drain technology: the enormous variety of the Fundo series offers individual possibilities to increase the wellness factor in the bathroom with a stylish floor-level shower.
wedi 610 – maximum security with minimal processing time An adhesive sealant that holds everything together: the wedi 610 not only bonds wedi elements together reliably, it also provides a 100% secure seal. This means that specialist craftsmen can complete two work steps in one and save processing time when building modular bathroom and wellness concepts.
wedi Top Wall: now also in brilliant white The wedi Top Line quickly took over the market as a preferred alternative to traditional tiling in bathroom areas. To answer market demand, the Emsdetten based system provider is rounding out its portfolio further – for aesthetic wall design in shower areas, Top Wall elements are now also available in Pure white in addition to the four existing colours. The white surface, in contrast to the Stone grey, Carbon black, Sahara beige and Concrete grey in a natural stone look, is completely homogeneous thus not only ideal to match modern sanitary ware but promotes hygiene and is particularly easy to maintain.
Fundo RioLigno – revolutionising wet rooms on timber floors There are surfaces, such as wood, that are extremely vulnerable to moisture and thus to mould and fungi development. In such structures, the sealing of shower areas must be done with appropriate care allowing sufficient time for a precise and secure result in order to preserve the wooden structure beneath. The shower element itself must not exceed an outer edge thickness of 25 mm for an optimal flush-fit with existing floor boards. The wedi Fundo RioLigno shower element stands out precisely because of its extremely low installation height despite its attractive, close-to-wall channel drainage.
Assurance in the wedi system - Transparency in the event of an insurance claim Without a secure sealing system in wet areas, moisture is able to penetrate into the substrate and subsequently damage the underlying structure. In the event of an insurance claim, it is frequently necessary for an expert to clarify whether the tiler, fitter or manufacturer is required to pay for the damage and possible subsequent repairs – and it is usually impossible to clarify the liability down to the last detail. Systems provider wedi guarantees that its system components are one hundred percent watertight for up to 20 years – giving installers and building owners a considerable assurance thus eliminating any uncertainty regarding the issue of responsibility.
wedi delivers custom-made luxury production for Chinese hotel The wet room systems provider wedi of Emsdetten is also a specialist in custom-made solutions for wet areas. The considerable flexibility of the extruded rigid polystyrene foam allows for completely individual designs to be created according to the customer’s requirements. The owners of a hotel complex in Macau, China have drawn on this expertise. Two exclusive pool suites were created with the use of wedi elements at the 5-star hotel. The elements ensure reliable and sustainable moisture protection of the substrate whilst excite with their visual impression.
Goodbye 80s bathroom - A family bathroom renovated quickly, cleanly and safely with wedi Texas and back: after the German Hullerman family had lived in the USA for several years due to professional reasons, it was finally decided to move back home to Germany. Their new home, a detached house in the Münsterland region, was quickly found but the bathroom in particular did not appeal at all. A quick renovation was needed - after all, the family wanted to move in as soon as possible. The innovative and proven wedi systems with their directly tileable, waterproof construction elements and high-quality design surfaces offered an ideal solution for the quick planning and fast execution of their project. Their new friendly, modern and at the same time practical family bathroom made the start of the Hullermanns' life in their new home even more pleasant.
Time and cost savings with the installation of wedi walls Whether for renovations or new builds: building work in bathrooms must be done quickly so that they are available to use as soon as possible. This applies for private residences as much as for hotels and other facilities where renovations are frequently carried out with the facility remaining open. Building elements which can be installed quickly and easily are not only beneficial to owners, but also provide security in planning and calculations for tradespeople, planners and architects. Emsdetten-based wedi offers full system solutions for contemporary bathroom design. In particular, their building elements, made from extruded rigid polystyrene foam with a special fibre-mesh cement coating, are perfect for constructing a multitude of wall solutions. As a quick and reliable alternative to masonry using porous concrete, the 100% waterproof material provides a cost-effective solution thanks to the reduced workforce requirement.
wedi Nonstep ProS prevents sound transmission in the bathroom Even when a bathroom is used as a place of peace and relaxation, disruptive noises occur particularly quickly here. When the water strikes the floor during showering, it generates sound waves which can also be heard in adjoining rooms. Preventing this requires professional decoupling of both the bath and shower area. With the Nonstep ProS sound insulation fleece, wedi has optimised a system element which, in addition to reliable sound insulation, also stands out with its low installation height.
wedi Sanoasa Shine wellness loungers The highest comfort with maximum individuality – that’s what the new wedi Sanoasa Shine wellness loungers from Emsdetten-based wedi offer. Thanks to exceptional design language and a customisable colour coating, the new range leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to design for spa & wellness. Once built, they can be used immediately with no additional installation effort and, as light-weight items, can be moved into the desired position with no problem.
Seamless wedi Top design surfaces wedi Top Line convinces: after the positive response to the introduction of the wedi design surfaces for walls and floors at the beginning of 2019, the wedi Top Line has been expanded to cover other bathroom areas in 2020. Niches, wall-hung toilet cistern and bathroom furniture can now also be cladded with seamless surfaces from the Emsdetten-based system provider. In addition to previously available colours of Pure white, Stone grey and Carbon black, more individual accents can be created and varied colour combinations can be realised with newly added Sahara beige and Concrete grey colours.
Short construction time – high quality – more relaxation Hotel “die Post” in Meerfeld has a long and eventful history. The three-star hotel in Vulkaneifel is currently managed by the fifth generation of the Molitor family. Surrounded by wide expanse of green areas, small rivers and extinct volcanoes, “die Post” has made a name for itself as a wellness and luxury hotel. When building its modern wellness area, specialist installers and planners responsible for the project relied on versatile elements from the Emsdetten-based manufacturer, wedi.
wedi is introducing numerous innovations in 2020 When it comes to developing new intelligent solutions for individually designing modern bathrooms and wellness areas, the system provider wedi is well ahead: numerous innovations for making installations easier, increasing bathroom safety and providing visual highlights are expected from the Emsdetten company in 2020.
