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.
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 a rule, 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 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.
