Impey - Wetroom inspiration for all, with award winning technology.

The UK’s market-leading wetroom brand

Pioneering many of the innovations which make the luxury and style of a fully inclusive level access wetroom accessible to all. Wetrooms add luxury, style and visual appeal to a home, and provide the perfect bathroom even in the smallest areas. They create a sense of space, dedicated to accessibility, luxury and relaxation which can’t be achieved with a traditional bath and shower combination.

WETROOM FLOOR FORMERS

What is a wet room floor former? Commonly known as Wetroom trays, Wetroom floor formers, act as floorboard replacements with a pre-formed gradient to a square or linear drainage point which allows for the creation of a level access showering space. Wetroom trays are then tanked with a waterproof membrane and tiled or covered in vinyl flooring.

  • AQUA-DEC EASYFIT: The Aqua-Dec EasyFit Wetroom Floor Former is an extremely strong 22mm thick GRP floorboard replacement with 4 pre-formed drainage gradients to provide a level access wetroom floor suitable for tiling. The pioneering Aqua-Dec EasyFit is supplied with a gravity, pumped or slimline waste. A range of Drain Top designs are also available.
  • AQUA-DEC LINEAR 2: The Aqua-Dec Linear 2 is a linear drain wetroom floor former with 2 gradients to direct water to the drainage point.
  • AQUA-DEC LINEAR 3: The Aqua-Dec Linear 3 is a linear drain wetroom floor former with 3 gradients to direct water to the drainage point.

  • LEVEL-GRADE: A colour-coded matrix provides a controlled working profile with a built-in gradient to allow the installer to create the perfect sloping wetroom shower floor.

WETROOM WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS

What is wetroom tanking/waterproofing? Wetroom waterproofing or ’tanking’ is the most important stage of any wetroom installation. Correctly tanking/waterproofing will prevent water & humidity from penetrating the walls of showering area or building. Water damage can cause serious issues to a buildings structure. By waterproofing wetroom floors and walls with Impey WaterGuard you ensure a leak free showering area, guaranteed for life.

  • WATERGUARD WETROOM TANKING: WaterGuard is a 1mm thick, flexible waterproofing membrane. The complete wetroom sealing solution - not just for floors but also to walls.

WETROOM UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Stepping into a heated and comfortable wetroom, at just the right temperature and with the floor warm to the feet, makes the showering experience even more enjoyable. Aqua-Mat underfloor heating creates the ideal temperature and is suitable for all types of floor - new concrete or wooden - so can provide extra luxury and comfort in any wetroom.

  • AQUA-MAT: Aqua-Mat underfloor heating creates the ideal temperature and is suitable for all types of floor - concrete or wooden - providing extra luxury and comfort in any wetroom.

  • MANTIS SHOWER TRAY: Designed to support those with reduced mobility and disabled users in wheel chairs who have level access issues with their existing floors.
  • MENDIP SHOWER TRAY: The Mendip shower tray has a built-in waste gully for ease of installation where the floor cannot be breached.

  • SLIMLINE SHOWER TRAY: The Impey Slimline tray has the best drainage flow rate of any equivalent tray on the market and is suitable for mixer and electric showers.

ELECTRIC AND MIXER SHOWERS

For drainage that requires a waste pump, we offer a choice of five electric showers, which provide a more economical and easy to install solution. These showers can be directly connected to the wastewater pump rather than fitting a separate flow switch or sensor, together with the additional wiring connections. The latest innovation from Mira and Whale provides wireless control pumped drainage, reducing installation time and the need for additional wiring between the pump and the shower.

Wetroom Cleaning 101: A Comprehensive Guide to Maintaining Your Wetroom

January 2024

A wetroom is a modern, minimalist bathroom solution which offers a contemporary aesthetic based on clean lines and open plan design. A properly installed wetroom will last for decades with the correct care and attention. The minimal nature of a wetroom also makes it quick and easy to clean. Here are some tips for keeping your wetroom sparkling for as long as possible.

Clean as You Go

Rinsing away suds after you have showered means that your wetroom floor will stay cleaner for longer.

Use a squeegee to remove left-over condensation from any glass panels and invest in a squeegee floor mop, which is ideal for pushing any leftover water towards the wetroom drain.

Install Underfloor Heating

When fitting your wetroom, it is a good idea to opt for underfloor heating. This will ensure your wetroom floor stays dry when not in use and deter the build-up of damp or mould, which can occur when the floor is not dried out properly.

It is also great to step out of the shower area onto a warm floor!

Don’t Forget Ventilation

To reduce any damp or the possibility of mould, it is important to keep your wetroom properly ventilated.

Remember to specify an extractor fan for the room on installation, which will ensure steam is drawn away from the environment.

If your wetroom has a window, let some fresh air circulate as often as possible. This will help to keep it dry when it is not in use.

Mop the Floor

Owing to a lack of nooks, crannies and corners, the number of dirt traps in a typical wetroom is vastly reduced compared to a traditional bathroom space. This has many benefits including style, accessibility, and ease of cleaning. As part of your regular deep cleaning routine, mopping your wetroom floor is inevitable, but it will not be too difficult if you follow our ‘clean as you go’ recommendation.

Remember to use a floor cleaner which is appropriate for your chosen tiling and leave the floor to dry fully before use, to avoid any slips or trips.

Keep Grouting Gleaming

To avoid build-up of residue, dust, or mould, remember to keep the grouting between your tiles thoroughly clean.

It is possible to buy grout cleaning brushes or specific products which remove stains. If the grouting is maintained regularly, gently scrubbing it using a brush and warm water should be enough to ensure it stays dirt free.

Ensure that any products you choose are compatible with your grout and the tiles you have chosen.

Keep Your Drain Clean

Cleaning your wetroom drainage system and keeping it free from hair and grime is crucial to ensure that it continues to work efficiently and effectively.

To help with cleaning your shower drain, we have created a step-by-step video, which illustrates the cleaning and maintenance steps for our standard traps.

We would always encourage you to steer clear of harsh drain cleaning chemicals, in favour of regular cleaning and maintenance using gentle products like a simple solution of soapy water. If you are looking to be kind to your environment and avoid strong odours or fragrances, you could even try white vinegar or bicarbonate of soda as cleaning product alternatives.

Here is our recommendation for cleaning a standard Impey wetroom drain.

STEP 1: With the lifting tool provided, lift off the metal cap and put that to one side. This will expose the dip tube and bucket that creates the 50mm water seal in the standard trap.

STEP 2: These parts are both removable by hand or if preferred, you could use the lifter tool.

Rinse both parts out thoroughly. You may find that there's hair trapped in the bucket which will need to be removed. If they are stubbornly dirty, you can use a very weak mix of bleach and water. It is important to always remember that there is a rubber seal around the dip tube.

STEP 3: Once it has been cleaned make sure that rubber seal is inserted back correctly. The same removal is required whether your wetroom has a vinyl or a tiled top.

STEP 4: To clean the removed parts, flush them through and remove the non-return valve. This valve is the hair catcher; so, pull any accumulated hair away from the part and then rinse it out to get rid of all the dirt. Clean it with some soapy water, and if stubborn stains remain, use a very weak diluted bleach mix. Remember to rinse it in fresh water before replacing it.

STEP 5: Afterwards, put the hair catcher back in and replace vital parts of the drain. We would recommend cleaning every few weeks, depending on frequency of use.

Impey Showers NEW Large Linear Decs Launched

January 2024

In the pursuit of a modern, spacious showering area, look no further than a contemporary, linear wetroom. Research reveals that 67% of people use shower time to relax, unwind and plan. Whilst 40% of UK adults sometimes shower simply because they enjoy the showering experience, find it relaxing or use it to escape reality.

A relaxing, spa-style space, with unlimited options for personalisation and design creativity, a wetroom is the ultimate in showering indulgence.

A linear wetroom dec directs the water to a single drainage point using two, three or four falls. Practicality, functionality, flexibility and safety are just some of the benefits of a large, linear level-access showering space. You can easily broaden your bathroom design horizons by opting for a large, linear wetroom dec from Impey.

The inclusion of a luxury level-access shower space also offers an opportunity to create a relaxing haven, in which to wash away your worries and fully embrace the daily ritual of showering in a new and innovative way. Opting for square and linear shapes, which harmonise with the linear shape of the wetroom floor and contemporary drain top, inspire cohesion and create a welcoming space to reinvigorate or unwind.

Research has revealed that 75% of adults prefer showering to bathing; a wetroom offers a retreat from the fast pace of modern life to relax, reflect and revitalise under the restorative water spray.

The ultimate example of a practical and customisable showering space, a wetroom, or wet area in a larger bathroom, combines sleek modern styling with the benefits of step-free shower access. Appealing to all types of homeowners, from interior-savvy first-time buyers or families with young children, to multi-generational homes, or people with disabilities; a wetroom offers a long-term showering solution which can fit virtually any size or space of room.

A spacious wetroom dec is ideal to futureproof a showering area; offering level access and plenty of room for accessibility, ideal for those who are mobility-conscious or people with disabilities.
