Inevitably as sustainable requirements within the construction sector rise, waterproofing of wet areas is also facing stricter regulation. Rising issues and failures across shower, wet room and bathroom POD installations with water ingress and leaks, prompted NHBC to issue the technical guidance 9.2/06 in the area of substrates for tiling with special attention to tanking systems used beneath tiles. Providing unrivalled peace of mind for everyone involved, wedi has an array of products to meet this new guidance.

wedi is certified: wedi products satisfy the construction guidelines and regulations that are valid in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. As part of the ARDEX family, the manufacturer can offer not only 100% waterproof and loadbearing XPS tilebacker boards and shower systems with all required certifications (CE, UKCA, UKNI, BBA, EPD, VOC A+) but also, compatible adhesives and grouts for direct tiling without the need of additional waterproofing.

wedi is modular: products are designed to interlock with one another and work with clever accessories in order to truly complete the waterproofing of the installation, forming the well-known wedi system.

wedi is comprehensive: whatever the project is – renovation or new build, stud or block, wood or concrete, wet room, bathroom or wellness – a multitude of suitable wedi products offer a full system solution that provide the same assurances from the floor to the ceiling.
