An eye-catcher thanks to the characteristic "flakes": three new designs for the wedi Top Wall Modern design for bathrooms and showers: the wedi Top Wall as a seamless alternative to traditional wall tiles. Three new designs, made 100% of mineral materials, are now available. Their special feature is the integrated "flakes" – which consist entirely of recycled materials. wedi will present these new surfaces at BAU 2023 in Munich in April.

Simple, fast and safe - from the drain of the shower to the surface of the wall - wedi designs bathrooms of a monastery The Trappist Monastery, an ancient building in Chimay, Belgium, has been a place of prayer and work for the monks of Scourmount since 1862. For visitors who want to share the peace of the monks, a wing of the venerable building, known as the "hostel", is always open. Each of the 60 rooms has a private bathroom, of which 20 have recently been refurbished. The monks decided with a complete, all-round renovation in order to prevent water damage from the old, worn-out drains and pipes. In addition to the new technology, an another, very important aspect needed to be taken into account: the ambience of this very special building had to be preserved. The wooden substructure in the bathrooms had to be protected from moisture with insulation ensured so that the accommodation, like the rest of the monastery, became a place of peace and quiet.
wedi – systemised approach for new bathrooms As a leading system provider of waterproof construction and shower systems, wedi develops modular products that fit perfectly together. Not only can various wedi elements be easily combined in any way you like, but the installation time is significantly reduced too. Added bonus: laborious and/or risky work steps are integrated into prefabricated wedi products as much as possible, reducing stress and giving peace of mind for the installer.
Thermal bath in a listed building: safe and fast renovation thanks to wedi The term spa is from the latin term "sanus per aquam", meaning "health by water", and is taken literally in the case of Neptunbad in North Rhine-Westphalia. The bath in the west of Cologne was built in 1912 by the Royal Prussian architect Johannes Baptist Kleefisch in Art Nouveau style and has been operating as a wellness and fitness facility since 2002. Two unusual sauna areas are particularly popular: the Asian sauna and bathing area and the listed, historic Art Nouveau sauna. The protection of the listed building was a great challenge during the renovation of the wellness area.
