Wetroom Design & Installation Solutions from CCL Wetrooms
Pre-Formed Dec for creating a Wetroom Gradient
- The Problem: Whether installed on a timber or concrete floor, a wetroom requires a 12mm wet floor gradient or fall to ensure effective drainage. For projects with multiple wetrooms, such as apartments and hotels, the ease of forming a gradient quickly and consistently on-site is even more important.
- The Solution: Pre-formed tapered boards or decs from CCL Wetrooms, provide a perfectly angled wet floor for a walk in shower. Ideal for timber floors, the decs have a built in gradient and are fitted onto the floor joists, replacing existing floor boards, to produce a level access floor. This simple solution is easy to install and provides the optimal gradient for effective drainage.
Multiple Traps for High Flow Rates
- Problem 1: Some wetroom installations are part of renovation works, rather than new In such situations, you may be installing a wetroom around pre-existing pipe work that can’t easily be moved.
- Problem 2: There has been an increase in the popularity of rainfall-style shower heads and luxurious nozzles that produce high flow rates. In order to meet the demands that high flow rates create, it is important to specify a suitable drain for the job.
- The Solution: These problems are solved by installing drains with multiple trap options. These linear drains allow up to 3 traps to be installed at one time. When installing a regular, single trap, you have the option of a central, right or left handed trap position, allowing the installer to bypass potential obstacles. In the second instance, up to three traps can be fitted to a single drain to accommodate flow rates of up to 70 L/min.
Modular System to create any size or shape of wetroom
- The Problem: Fixed drain locations and standard dec sizes constrain the limits of wet room design. When you’re forced to limit yourself to fixed locations and one-size-fits-all dec sizes, you can miss out on optimising your bathroom space.
- The Solution: A flexible modular system consisting of a variable sized dec and a linear drain, allows you to create a wetroom of any size and shape. The drain can be positioned in almost any location within the shower area, including the popular option of a wall to wall drain along the length of the shower wall.
- The Problem: One of the problems of using a traditional water seal trap is that left unattended, the water can become stagnant and cause unpleasant odours to seep into the property. This is particularly common in properties that are left unattended for a period of time such as holiday homes or when underfloor heating dries the water seal traps out. The result is an unpleasant smell that can permeate into the property.
- The Solution: Using our waterless trap, the trap remains closed when the shower is not in use and with no water in the trap to evaporate, there’s no chance of smells entering the room.
Shallowest Drains for low level floor build ups
- The Problem: With floor depths reducing and property developers looking to squeeze in additional floors into their apartment blocks and hotels, traditional drainage systems are becoming a less practical solution for use in low level screed.
- The Solution: Our market leading Linear Screed Drain with Lo-Seal trap technology, has a cutting edge depth of only 55mm providing efficient drainage in the shallowest of floors. Its slim line design allows a wetroom to be fitted onto shallow floors of less than 60mm .
Sheet Waterproof Membrane for tiling onto immediately
- The Problem: When installing a wetroom, the process of tanking the space to ensure it is waterproof can be very time consuming. On-site, there could be electricians, plumbers and other site personnel looking to work in the space, but a wet membrane prevents access to it. This inefficient use of time has an impact on site productivity.
- The Solution: Our sheet membranes have a felt backing sheet which can be walked on and upon removal, the waterproof membrane can be tiled upon immediately. In addition, sheet membranes are a very reliable way of providing a completely waterproof seal in a wetroom.
We take a design-led approach to all of our designs and the results speak for themselves. As the UK’s leading wetroom specialist, you’ll find our innovative solutions in luxury hotels, apartments and spa facilities throughout the country.
