Schlüter Systems helps architects and specifiers to get the waterproofing basics right when designing wetrooms.

Barrier-free wetrooms with floor-level showers, easy-access sanitaryware and the provision of seating areas offer a practical, future-proof solution for clients and their households as they age. The huge range of ceramic and natural stone tiles available today makes creating safe, slip-resistant surfaces that are also beautiful easily achievable.

Schlüter Systems creates products that work best when used together. A fully waterproof bathroom or wetroom that will stand the test of time relies on each component working both on its own and as part of a system. To break this down, each element should be understood in its own right.

Schlüter's Ditra 25 uncoupling membrane serves as a waterproofing membrane and a vapour pressure equalisation layer, protecting tile or natural stone coverings from cracking or debonding. The same features can also be found in the company's Ditra Heat E underfloor heating system, making it ideal for heated floors and walls in wetrooms with tile and stone coverings.

The tile and stone covering in the shower area must be sufficiently sloped to allow for appropriate drainage. This is easily achieved with Schlüter’s prefabricated levelling and shower tray components, which are available with a point drainage system or a component linear drainage system.

The Kerdi Line G3 linear drainage system complies with BS EN 1253, providing a 50mm water seal and anti-blockage based on an 8mm ball bearing test. It is a recent addition to the range and, at just 78mm high, offers a low height solution.

To create the desired finish, Schlüter Trendline finishing profiles are available in a variety of colours and textures, giving designers full flexibility to complement the chosen tile. This can be achieved by offsetting the colour to make a statement with the tiles or using one tone of tile and matching the colour of the profile to it. 

Shower niches provide stylish integrated shelving that can be tiled in-line with the rest of the room or they can become a focal point if using accent tiles. If a shelf is required after the project is finished, Schlüter's Shelf range avoids the need to drill through finished coverings and the waterproofing beneath. It is designed to coincide with the grout lines to create a seamless finish, making it easy to install while keeping the wetroom fully functional.

Whether creating a fully warrantied waterproofing system at its earliest stages or adding attractive elements to a finished wetroom, Schlüter Systems offers unparalleled solutions.
