The installation of a Wet Room consists of the following steps.

  • A cut out is made in the floor and a Linear Wet-Deck panel with drainage tray is inserted onto the floor joists and level with the floorboards.
  • The waste water pipework is connected to the trap fitted on bottom of the drainage tray.
  • The whole area is then sealed using the supplied materials to completely seal the walls and floor.
  • The area can then be tiled.
  • A stainless steel waste grid adds the finishing touch.

A specialist contractor is advised for for the installation of wet rooms.

Wet Room - Size of deck to order

Always order the longest Linear Wet-Deck that your Bath-Shower Room can accommodate, the longer the deck the bigger the fall area (A), water that goes beyond area (A) into area (B) may create puddles, it is better to create a larger area (A) and reduce the area (B). See diagram opposite.


Wet Room

Wet Room - Size of glass screen to order

Keep as much water in area (A), glass length ideally should be the same or longer than area (A), the longer the better.


Wet Room - Type of shower to install

Any type of shower can be used in a wet room, always use a shower that you can direct the flow from the shower head directly on the linear drain, the linear drain can cope with high volumes of water, body jets should be carefully positioned. Always check the flow rate of your shower, and compare it with the flow rate of the Linear Drain System (above).
