A tiled floor-level shower or rather a bathtub with a shower? A fundamental question that has a lasting impact on the design and character of any bathroom. As a base under the tile, wedi Fundo shower elements create almost limitless design possibilities, both in renovation and new build projects.
Conveniently flat and easy to install, safe in the system and 100% waterproof: in many different formats and with either linear or point drainage, the wedi Fundo series serves as the foundation for individual shower designs. The universal design of these elements creates shower enclosures that are safe to use by all generations. Thanks to the low construction height, they are equally suitable for refurbishments as well as for new buildings. Owing to these characteristics, the wedi Fundo range was named brand of the century in 2022 – in the 'floor-level showers in unique position' category. Brands that exemplify an entire product range are proactively selected for this award.
Shower pan vs. tileable Fundo shower element
Compared to conventional shower trays, a tileable shower floor has many advantages, for example maximum design flexibility. While a stone resin or acrylic shower tray comes in a fixed size, tileable shower elements can be adapted to the bathroom and individual shapes or cut-outs are also possible. This allows the available space to be used optimally which is a decisive advantage, especially in small bathrooms. The appearance can also be individually adapted, for example, floor tiling can be extended into the shower. Bathrooms can therefore be created with a unified surface design, optically amplifying the available space. wedi elements have a high degree of prefabrication and a precise gradient integrated during manufacturing, making the construction of tiled shower spaces straightforward. The construction process becomes particularly easy for the installer thanks to the reduced installation time and labour. Hence, the Fundo series offers maximum safety by protecting the substrate from water damage in the best possible way.
The right surface cover
After installation, there are no limits to the design of a floor-level shower element: in addition to traditional tiling, cladding with e.g. matching Top surfaces is also possible. The wedi Top series is not only large-format and seamless, but also low-maintenance and hygienic. It scores with its non-slip properties, creating a secure feel in every situation. Step-by-step, the practical wedi shower configurator guides users through various options, helps choosing the appropriate element as well as the drainage, returning a list of recommended products tailored to the specific requirement.
