Install a wet room for maximum accessibility

Install Wetrooms for Maximum Accessibility

For those in a wheelchair or who are simply less mobile, accessing bathroom facilities can be a challenge. You may want to consider having a wetroom installed. Not only are wetrooms stylish and sleek, they are wheelchair accessible providing a sanctuary for everyone in the home.

Wetrooms – One Level

There is no step up into the shower and no shower lip to negotiate. Everything is accessible by wheelchair. Usually the whole room is waterproofed, although you have the option to only waterproof the areas where the shower water may reach. As the whole room or a majority of the room is waterproof, the entire area can be used as a safe showering area.

What use are Tile backer boards for Wetrooms?

Tile backer boards are insulating boards that are ideal for use in wetrooms, rooms equipped with underfloor heating systems, and in rooms where an additional stable background is needed for tiling. Tile backer boards possess waterproof and heat and sound insulating qualities. The boards come in a variety of shapes and sized depending on your specific requirements. At Tile Fix Direct, we stock various different styles of tile backer boards including curved tile backer boards, angled tile backer boards, short boards, long boards, and a range of accessories that complement the boards.

Tile Backer Boards Used in the Construction of a Wetroom

One of the main uses for tile backer boards is during the installation of a wetroom. Wetrooms are fully tanked, or waterproof, rooms with a level-access shower. These types of rooms will typically have the drain inset into the floor, replacing the conventional plastic shower tray. With no shower trays, wetrooms can be designed with more scope and provide a great opportunity to be creative with colours, layouts, and style.

Installing Strong, Durable, and Effective Tile Backer Boards is Essential for a Wet Room

There are many benefits of having a wetroom installed in your home with quality tile backer boards. When properly fixed, the tile backer boards ensure that the entire wet room is waterproof protecting any background from water leakages and residue. Without the use of a tile backer board, your wetroom could potentially fall victim to water damage and thousands of pounds worth of repairs.

Tile backer and insulation boards are lightweight, yet strong enough to withstand the weight of heavy tiles. Leakage and other limitations caused from poor quality boards can be disastrous. To ensure that you’re using tile backer boards fit for the job from manufacturers such as Marmox and Orbry, visit Tile Fix Direct or contact a helpful Tile Fix Direct advisor on 0333 320 04 24.
