Wednesday 4th October

12.30pm -  Schlüter-Systems RIBA CPD

The Schlüter-Systems RIBA CPD introduces the key considerations in the design and installation of walk-in wetrooms, and shower areas. 
Ultimately, an integrated system solution, with products that are designed to work together, should be the specifier’s first choice when selecting products to use in shower areas and wetrooms.

Benefits of the CPD include:

  • Benefits of integrated systems for wetrooms vs. multi-manufacturer combined offerings

  • How point drains and linear drains can be hidden or accent the design

  • Requirements of waterproofing and how an integrated system offers complete peace of mind

  • The difference between waterproof and water-resistant tile backerboards – not all are equal!

  • A complete waterproofing and drainage solution – the installation and compatibility benefits
