Unidrain’s unique floor drain system became the preferred solution for the construction industry in just a few years. There are now Unidrain installations all over the world, and Unidrain has become a synonym for modern floor drains positioned against the wall. By constantly developing both construction and design, Unidrain aims not only to be the preferred floor drain system for the construction industry, but also to be the industry’s preferred supplier in the bathroom field.
Unidrain’s products can be used in all types of project: both renovation and new builds, and in private and public-sector projects. All Unidrain products have been developed by Danish architects in close collaboration with experts in wet room technology, both locally and internationally.
Unidrain’s floor drains have won internationally renowned design prizes, including the ‘iF product design award’ and the ‘Danish Design Prize’ for the HighLine series. In 2015 Claus Dyre received the ‘Villum Foundation Building Component Prize’ for his invention of the linear floor drain.
Unidrain’s linear floor drain can be positioned either by the wall or as a free-standing solution. Whichever solution you choose, the floor drain is fitted with Unidrain’s patented flanges, to make it 100% waterproof.
ClassicLine - The Original Design by Unidrain
The linear floor drains are the invention that formed the basis for Unidrain. The drain is a revolutionary invention in itself, with its patented wall and floor flanges which allow it to be positioned against the wall while keeping it 100% waterproof. ClassicLine is the original design series from Unidrain and consists of a frame and a grating. The frame is mandatory, as it holds the grating in place. Six different designs in brushed stainless steel make it a solution for every taste.
The corner drain is the discreet solution for bathrooms and utility rooms where space often is limited. The floor drain is significant smaller than other similar products on the market. The corner position also creates even more space in the shower cabinet.
Unidrain’s square floor drain allows you to achieve a uniform Unidrain expression in any room where a drain is needed but a linear drain is not an option. Unidrain always recommends a linear drain in the shower cubicle.
Unidrain bespoke can be made to order to any size. Customized drains are especially suited to institutions and large bathrooms, as they can be made to the exact measurements you require.
The new Reframe Collection by Unidrain is an exclusive and unique series of bathroom accessories grounded in Scandinavian design and quality. Each product is designed with innovative, unique and intelligent features to improve functionality. The Reframe Collection is reframing the existing, bringing new functionality into bathroom accessories. Five different colour options give you the possibility of matching all metal details, conveying a subtle feeling of luxury.

Stempelhusene – Cooperative housing built in style
Unidrain were delighted to have played a key part in the design and construction of Stemplehusene; the exclusive housing development in Rødovre.
When the supermarket chain Irma vacated their former headquarters, in the western part of Rødovre the location became the ideal venue for, Stempelhusene, the first of Irma’s cooperative housing projects. The cost of a brand new apartment can be prohibitive for many, in a cooperative building the ownership is divided between the residents, making it not only more cost effective to acquire but also prevents a quick resale for profit.
The new Stempelhusene development comprises of four yellow, brick-clad apartment blocks containing 88 apartments designed and built with a focus on quality from the outset. Simple aesthetics and stylish materials characterise the Stempelhusene apartments in Rødovre, every item from the bricks to the bathrooms’ linear drains has been carefully selected; creating elegant homes ready for the residents to occupy.
Unidrain - What is a wet room?
What is a wet room?
A wet room is a fully waterproofed and tanked bathroom without a separate shower tray, so you have an open, completely tiled shower room all on one level flooring. Wet rooms eliminate the need of a glass screen, although some people choose to include one in their wet room for cosmetic purposes or to prevent water getting sprayed across the other fixtures by preference – but everything within a wet room is waterproofed, from the ceiling to the floors.
How does it differ from a walk-in shower?
The difference between a walk in shower and a wet room is that a walk in shower typically features a low level shower tray installed into the floor and one or two glass screens or doors to separate it from the rest of the bathroom, compared to a wet room where the water flows down a drain in the floor. The walk in shower is more like a cubicle, basically creating an independent area to wash, where the rest of the room is not suitable to be splashed with water.
Wet rooms, on the other hand, allow for the whole bathroom to be resistant to prolonged water exposure, without the need for shower doors or screens. Everything within a wet room is waterproofed, from the walls to the floors, and even the cabinets and fixtures. The floor is all one level and consistently tiled within the wetroom space, which is great for a more spacious shower experience and especially ideal for people with low mobility. If you are seeking a modern bathroom solution, a wetroom is a stylish and seamless alternative to a traditional shower suite.
What are the benefits of having a wetroom?
If you are wondering whether you should opt for a wet room, there are numerous reasons why it is a good idea and worth the money. Here are just some of the advantages of having a wet room in your property…
One level flooring with no raised shower tray allows for easy access
Provides a ‘wow’ factor to your property – providing a stylish and sophisticated look where you can enjoy spending your time, and leave a great impression on your guests
Ideal for those with low mobility or the elderly for accessibility reasons and the open plan allows for wheelchair access
Wet room kits available to purchase allows bathroom restoration processes easy and affordable
Perfect way to increase the value of your property
Improves the quality of your home with waterproofed/tanking
Reduces the risk of damp from your bathroom use
Requires less maintenance/cleaning than a normal bathroom, as they don’t have fittings like shower enclosures with framework and runners that are known to collect grime and mould easily
Converting an existing small bathroom into a wet room gives your space an entirely new and fresh feel which gives your property a modern refresh
Our wet room drains come with removable grates/tile covers for easy cleaning, as well as an internal channel which prevents stagnant water
Can any room be a wetroom?
In theory, yes. Wet rooms can be installed in just about any sized room (within reason), on the ground floor or upper floors of your property, on both flooring of timber or concrete construction. By no means does working with a limited area mean that a wetroom isn’t possible, although it does mean that the layout, design and placement of elements will need to be done carefully, in a way that compliments the space. Wetrooms are also a great solution for smaller bathrooms, as they create the illusion of more space. The best way to create a wet room in your property is to convert an existing bathroom, as it will have all of the plumbing and pipe work required to create it.
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t create one in just about any space. If you have an unused loft space, why not consider converting your attic into a wetroom? If you would like to do more with your loft space, or any other room in your house by turning it into a wet room, we have the tools to help. We offer a large range of wetroom kits and bathroom products as well as a nationwide installation service.

Who can install a wet room?
There are several benefits to having a wetroom, but it’s vital that it is installed correctly the first time in order to avoid facing issues down the line. The quality of the installation should come first, and this rule should not be ignored in order to save costs or hit targets. Installing a wetroom is a job for the professionals – so if this isn’t you, then we highly recommend you find someone who is.
How much does a wet room cost?
High-quality, well built wetrooms can come at a cost, but one that definitely pays off. It’s reasonable to estimate a starting cost of around £5,000, with the upper end depending on the size of the wet room. Floor and wall tiles cost around £50 per square metre, so you need to plan for this within your set budget. It’s estimated that having a wet room can add around £10,000 to the value of your property, so it can definitely be a good investment to make.
Wet room drain systems
The water drains through a flush drain system within the shower area. The floor has to be designed with a slight gradient to channel the water into the drain. The best way to achieve this gradient is to install a sub-floor with solid performed boards which have a built in slope, which can then be tanked and waterproofed. Whether your project requires high capacity drainage or requires a low profile solution for struggling floor depths, we have a range of wet room drain outlets to suit your needs.
