wedi specializes in construction elements for bathrooms, steam rooms, and wellness areas and has been the go-to brand for tradesmen around the world for over 3 decades.
Steam rooms and zero-entry showers previously were reserved for trendy boutique hotels and luxury homes, but in the last few years have become the norm in bathroom renovations.
Why choose wedi when there are numerous other options available on the market?
wedi, unlike the others, has been a tried-and-true system for over 30 years, since 1983. wedi was developed by Helmut Wedi, a German master tiler determined to develop a high-quality system that provided practical solutions that add real value. wedi has become a well-known and trusted brand worldwide by industry experts and homeowners alike.
wedi is a secure system, backed up by a 10 year manufacturer's guarantee. It is a straightforward and time-saving installation system.
The basis of all wedi elements have a 100% waterproof blue core, made from wedi specific extruded polystyrene closed cell foam which is made using foaming agents in compliance with the Montreal protocol, and contains no HBCD (Hexabromocyclododecane) which has been banned in Canada and is a toxic substance of high concern with the US EPA.
The cement based coating are reinforced with fiberglass mesh on both sides and coated with synthetic polymer resin mortar which fully embeds the mesh layer resulting in the panel's strength and the ability to develop highest adhesion strength to virtually any type of thinset mortar. The embedded mesh eliminates the risk of delamination of installation layers.
wedi elements can be tiled with all types of ceramic, glass, or stone tile whether they are mosaic or large format tiles.
Homeowners and builders increasingly favor shower spaces which can function without a curb or would not require any build up over existing floor areas resulting in a step up into the shower. One important reason for this trend is: easier and safer access to the shower for older and/ or physically disabled persons.
An increasing demand for wellness systems and products means that the demands on innovation and extravagant solutions are always on the increase. wedi offers innovative products, perfect for a residential steam room to commercial spa.
wedi shower bases are perfectly sloped towards a fully integrated drain assembly and are 100% waterproof and easily customizable on site. Select from the traditional Primo, floor level Ligno, or trench drain Riolito.
Building panels are extremely lightweight and easy to use. They replace cement boards with a waterproofing roll on membrane, saving time and money.
Available in multiple sizes and thicknesses for use as floor underlayment, wall and ceiling backer board, over countertops, tub decks, and for building seats or tileable furniture without need for any support made of wood or steel.
wedi curbs and ramps are available in several options for shower entry designs where transitions are required, and can be installed with wedi Fundo shower bases. Waterproof and versatile, wedi curbs and ramps may be tiled before glass doors, panels or glass blocks are installed. The solid curb options are slightly sloped on the top surface so water will run back into the shower. Solid curbs carry a weight of up to 280 lbs/ft. once tiled. The wedi ramp is ADA compliant.
wedi prefabricated niches are fabricated from ½” Building Panels for strength and come in five different size options. The perfect fit for all your shower necessities, our niches install quickly and safely, and integrate flush into the wall panel assembly with wedi fasteners and wedi sealant. Shelves, included in some models, are flexible and can be installed exactly where they will fit your design best.
wedi prefabricated shower seats and benches install much quicker and easier than metal tray or concrete seats. Plus, they bond well to thinset mortar and are 100 % waterproof due to the CFC-free extruded polystyrene closed cell foam core and will not cause efflorescence or discolorations or waterproofing issues as frequently observed with products including those requiring mortar fills.
wedi Joint Sealant is a single component Silyl Modified Polymer (SMP) for use in wedi product system installations as specified in installation manuals. The product is especially formulated for high green strength (high internal strength), adhesion in wet and alkaline environments, and permanent flexibility. The product forms watertight seals on and in joints and in seams, and allows for dissipation of stress caused by shock, vibration or thermal movement.
Use the wedi Fastener Kit, which includes 1-5/8" screws and washers with tabs, to securely fasten building panels and other accessories during installation.
The wedi Subliner Dry System includes wedi Sheet membrane, sealing tape, prefabricated corner tapes and plumbing fixture collars as well as bonding flange drains in a variety of options. wedi Subliner Dry provides a waterproof tileable surface over suitable pre-existing wall and floors.
