Modular Wet-Floor System
The Modular Wet-Floor system is a unique concept in wetroom technology that can be used in a number of configurations to create a wetroom on a timber floor.The system is versatile and cost effective and can be installed with the linear drain in either the centre of the shower area, or neatly positioned against the wall. Consisting of three main elements, the Modular Wet-Floor is simple to configure. Start by selecting the required number of Drainage Components and Tapered Boards, then simply choose the appropriate Floor or Wall Grill to suit your wetroom layout. The Drainage Component and Tapered Boards can then be easily trimmed on-site, making the whole system quick and easy to install.CONTACT US
System ComponentsDrainage Component & Traps: Select the required number of drainage components. Establish the flow rate required & select the appropriate number of traps required to achieve this flow rate (see Number of Traps section & Flow Rate chart below)Tapered Board and Trims: Select the required number of tapered boards and appropriate trims.Floor/Wall Grill: Select the appropriate floor or wall grill (s).
Manufactured from tough ABS plastic, the Drainage Component is the central element of the Modular Wet-Floor system. Once its position has been decided, the remainder of the system is built around it.
Forming a base for the Linear Drain, the Drainage Component has a 1mm gradient towards the centre and can be installed in either an offset or central position within the shower area, or neatly up against the wall to create a sleek and unobtrusive wall drain*.The Drainage Component can be easily trimmed by up to 200mm off each end using a hand saw and is secured using the pre-drilled screw ports. Two Drainage components can also be butted together to create a larger wetroom area. The drainage component and Tapered Boards can easily be trimmed on site.
The trap has an adjustable ball joint and comes with removable dip-tube. For ease of installation it can be fitted anywhere within the central section of the Drainage Component, making it simple to avoid joists and other such obstructions.
*When installed with the Wall Grill, the Drainage Component width is reduced by 80mm, to 220mm
Number of Traps
A single trapped Modular Wet-Floor has a flow rate of up to 27 L/min (see flow chart for full details). When a higher flow rate is required, a double trap version is available allowing up 50 L/min. For higher flow rates, a third trap can be installed giving up to 68 L/min.
Each board is 1200mm wide and tapered from 22mm to 11mm, giving a consistent gradient every time. Available in six lengths, the boards can be easily trimmed to size using a hand saw and should be secured with the fixing washers supplied, at a minimum of 300mm centres.
The system is designed with versatility in mind and can be installed in a number of different configurations. Click Here for the most common layouts.
Using a combination of boards, either a one way fall towards the wall, or a two way fall with a central or offset drain can be created. Two or more Tapered Boards can also be butted together to create a larger wetroom area. A 280mm x 300mm infill panel is available for use in certain configurations.

Tile Trims (only required for wetrooms with glass screens)
The decorative stainless steel tile trim ensures a smooth transition from the edge of the tapered board across the wetroom floor. It provides a stylish stainless steel finish detailing the difference in tile heights where the tapered board meets the remainder of the wetroom floor. Please specify size of trim required (below)

Wall Grill For installation against the wall. Grill width 86mm Floor Grill For installation in either an offset or central position within the shower area. Grill width 58mm
The Drainage Component is manufactured with one trough size at 660mm, all lengths of grill are then fitted onto this trough.
The grill is available in nine standard sizes; two grills can be butted together to create a larger wetroom area (excluding 600mm grill). Bespoke grills can be manufactured for sizes in between and over those that are standard. Please contact our technical team to discuss your requirements.

How to Specify
To specify your Modular Wet-Floor first decide the layout of your wet room, then simply follow the three step process:
Step Select the required number of Drainage Components. Establish the flow rate required & select the appropriate number of Traps required to achieve this flow rate. Step Select the required number and size of Tapered Boards and tile trims (if required) Step Select the appropriate Floor or Wall Grill(s)
Note: The Drainage Component and Tapered Boards can be easily trimmed on-site. Two Drainage Components and Grills can be butted together to create a larger wetroom area.
Waterproof MembraneFor timber floors we would recommend the RIW Tilesafe membrane is applied to the entire wetroom floor. RIW FWM should then be applied to the walls of the shower area, plus an additional 300mm and overlapped onto the RIW Tilesafe Reinforcing Tape.
