Key Steps for Installation
The wedi Fundo Shower System is a 100% waterproof system that reduces your shower installation time by up to 50%. The reinforced cement resin surface offers a superior bond to virtually any tile, stone or tile adhesive, making it a straightforward, safe and quick installation process.
Before beginning this process, ensure that the subfloor and wall framing construction meets building code and is sufficiently load bearing, even and free of contaminants.
Builder Matt Menichelli from Elevate Building Group highlights the key steps of the installation process.
Trowel the tile adhesive to the subfloor and comb through with a 10x10mm notch trowel. To ensure a good bond of the wedi base to the subfloor, complete the same process on the wedi base.
Press the base firmly into the tile adhesive bed, ensuring that the installation is level and void free. Additionally, set up a continuous bead of 610 sealant along the pans channel on the outer perimeter.
Push the wedi board all the way into the channel of the shower base and apply its bead of sealant. Fasten the boards directly to the studs starting 300mm above the base.
Cover all seams and fastener heads in the assembly area with 10mm bead of sealant and spread flat. The seams should be covered 25mm on either side.
