wedi has been operating with success for nearly 20 years in the United Kingdom. However, in the past few years many competitors have appeared on the UK market – prompting customers to rightfully ask the question:
Why choose wedi when there are numerous other waterproof and tileable solutions to choose from?
Unlike the other brands, wedi has been tried and tested by industry professionals for the past 34 years. The company was founded in Germany in 1983, when Helmut Wedi – a master tiler – set himself a goal to develop high-quality but above all practical solutions for tradesmen which provide real added value in their day-to-day work. His goal became the philosophy of his company and made his family name into a worldwide-known brand. Today, wedi operates in 36 countries worldwide, including the United States, which despite having one of the most diverse markets in the world, has just given a home to wedi’s newest manufacturing plant to be able to cope with the demand.
The system safety that wedi guarantees as well as the straightforward and time-saving installation takes centre stage, while the feedback received from their customers provide the basis for further developments of wedi’s products, systems and services.
The core of wedi’s building board – which forms the basis of all of their tileable elements - is a high-density extruded polystyrene foam that is 100% waterproof to the core and extremely robust while at the same time it is also lightweight. Its cement coated surface forms an incredibly strong and stable base for adhesive thanks to the integrated fibre mesh fabric, making it an ideal basis for any type of plaster and tile.
What sets wedi aside from other tileable solutions on the market is that its products also provide fantastic insulation, therefore save on energy costs and provide long-term protection against mould and fungus. What’s more, due to their A+ labelling – according to German and European regulations and laws – they are also non-hazardous and low-emission products.
Whatever the project - renovation or new build, wooden or concrete construction, wetroom, bathroom or wellness you will find a variety of suitable elements in wedi’s extensive product range. The key to the success of the wedi brand is that their products are well thought out and well made: 100 % secure - signed, sealed and guaranteed by wedi.
wedi BUILDING BOARDS can be applied to practically any substrate and are also suitable for use as an added insulation underneath underfloor heating. They are available in a wide range of formats:
- standard building boards - 600mm wide panels are available in many thicknesses ranging from 4mm to 100mm.
- XL building boards - 900mm wide panels - simplifies installation by reducing joint transitions.
- XXL building boards - 1200mm wide panels - free standing and stable, ideal for use as a partition wall.
- Construct boards are shapeable and flexible boards to create curved forms.
- Vapor boards are vapour proof boards for constantly humid areas such as steam rooms.
wedi FLOOR LEVEL SHOWERS (Fundo range) are not only tileable and 100% waterproof but also unique in their thermal properties which provide added insulation, hence resulting in warmer tiles under foot. What’s more, all elements have a factory-integrated pre-defined even slopes, are load-bearing and wheelchair accessible.
- Point drainage: available with 3 different drain locations (central, corner or end) the Fundo Ligno especially designed for wooden floors and the standard Fundo Primo available in a wide range of sizes.
- Linear drainage: the Fundo Riofino featuring 300mm central channel and the Fundo Riolito neo with close to wall channels in various lengths (300-1100mm) also available in a vast number of standard sizes, both with wedi’s brand new channel drain technology, featuring 360º pipe direction!
- Integrated drainage: available in a wide range of sizes, the Fundo Plano & Fundo Integro with a classic ’point’ design and the Fundo Plano Linea with a sophisticated linear design.
The wedi Fundo design concept also combines creative lines with natural forms offering ’designer showers’ with point drainage such as the Fundo Trollo (round shape) or the Fundo Nautilo (shell shape) with optional wall elements with or without the supply channels, enabling free-standing showers even in the middle of the room!
wedi DESIGN ELEMENTS offer design and functionality at the same time to help give the bathroom that special touch. These products range from new shower seatings - Sanoasa Benches 1-4 and Sanoasa Corner seats - and wedi Niches (4 different sizes), to the well-known Mensolo range offering L and U shapes perfect for pipe cladding or as tileable shelving.
A new innovation from wedi is the new wedi Fundo Top - a ready-to-fit cover perfectly adapted to the slopes and dimensions of their most popular ranges: Fundo Primo, Fundo Plano and Fundo Riolito neo. A contemporary, seamless elegant alternative to traditional tiling, it is made from a 6mm thick mineral material and available in 4 different (full-body) colours: white, beige, grey and anthracite.
wedi’s standard product range also spans into WELLNESS PRODUCTS which can be used - of course - in shower or bathroom areas as well. The Moltoromo modular wall system gives the freedom to create versatile, free-standing wall configurations, such as curved and angled solutions or sinuous lines to add that design led effect to any area, while the Sanbath bathroom furniture range with its elegant shapes continue complementing the wedi Sanoasa Bellina & Comoda modular benches and the versatile wedi Loungers which are available with or without integrated heating.
All wedi elements are designed to interlock and work with all other wedi system components and a long list of accessories, that truly complete the installation and waterproofing system.
The wedi product systems have their own BBA certification showing that they satisfy the construction guidelines and regulations for the United Kingdom and are also tested and approved as sealing systems for wetrooms, thus awarded with a CE mark.
wedi is proud of its outstanding TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES, offering customised building solutions for wellness projects as well as a bespoke service to create elements based on individual specifications such as special shower elements, footbaths, fountains, steam cabins or whirlpools to mention only a few.

Fundo Integro - The slimmest standard-compliant complete wedi shower system
Drain capacity, water trap height, gradient, sealing – when installing flush-to-floor showers there are a multitude of different standards and guidelines which planners and installers have to take into account. In addition, ever decreasing installation heights are sought in solutions for flush-to-floor showers in the renovation of existing buildings since every millimetre counts for this. With Fundo Integro, wedi as a manufacturer offers a very smart solution to both challenges with which planners and installers are always on the safe side, because the new complete shower system fulfils all of the relevant standards – and with an installation height of just 90 mm. This makes Fundo Integro the slimmest standard-compliant wedi complete system for flush-to-floor showers, which is unparalleled.
Designed for practice, and we’ve thought of everything.Particularly in the public domain, it is imperative that all relevant standards are complied with in bathroom planning. Until now, this has affected the total installation height of the shower element. With Fundo Integro, wedi offers a practical and reliable solution with around a 25% lower installation height in comparison with conventional equipment and structures. The shower element, including a drain which is already integrated, is just 90 mm tall. With a drain capacity of 0.8 litres per second, a water trap height of 50 mm, at least a 1.5 percent, evenly preformed gradient and 100% waterproof material, it also complies with all of the relevant standards and guidelines. One more practical aspect: like all wedi Fundo elements, the system is sealed ready for installation and can be installed in the blink of an eye.
Definitely quickly installedIn order to manage the installation as efficiently and easily as possible, Fundo Integro shifts the critical and time-consuming work steps directly into the product system, since both the drain technology and the gradient are already integrated into the element made from waterproof wedi blue XPS foam and completely sealed. The installation effort is therefore reduced to a minimum, with maximum reliability. Alongside the sophisticated shower element, an extra large sealing corner and an exclusive designer grate with a particularly slim frame for point drainage are also included in the scope of delivery. Fundo Integro is therefore a true “full service package” for any installer.
Visible variety guaranteedAlongside the practical aspects, these new tileable, waterproof floor elements from wedi also open up a wide range of design possibilities. Fundo Integro is thus available in eight different formats and, thanks to its extremely slim frame, can also be tiled with particularly thin ceramic or glass mosaics. In addition, the new system can be combined with numerous wedi Fundo Fino designer grates – leaving no customer request unanswered. And so that the pleasure of the new shower lingers for a long time, wedi provides the well-established ten-year quality guarantee on this attractive complete package.

Spa, wellness and leisure – the design possibilities are truly endless
Architects, planners and tilers alike benefit from the design freedom of wedi’s precision engineered waterproof construction elements. Whilst wedi is already well known for its innovative solutions for showers and bathrooms, the manufacturer is able to handle the increased product and project requirements in the realisation of spa, leisure and wellness facilities and supports planners, investors and installers in every phase of the project: from planning and manufacturing, through logistics and delivery, to the construction phase and commissioning on site.
From steam rooms to communal shower areas, footbaths to whirlpools, every detail can be designed exactly to the client’s requirements. For example, milled recesses for cables can be incorporated into the individual modules and lighting or sound technology can also be integrated during the manufacturing process. Each product is checked thoroughly during production as well as during quality control. In addition to this, all tailor-made systems are built and tested in the wedi factory before dispatch, to ensure that everything will fit and function precisely on site.
wedi offers a wide range of coatings for their wellness and spa elements: these coatings are ideally suited as a support for tiles and decorative plaster inside and outside of steam cabins for example and steam-resistant epoxy resin decorative coatings for roofs as well as a wide variety of surface and colour options which can be applied in the factory.
Further expanding the design possibilities of its elements, wedi has teamed up with pilzdesign who have developed a new, pressure-resistant multi-layer construction with an extremely durable Top Coat varnish coating with which the wedi construction elements can be coated. It consists of at least three layers, the completion of which creates a varnish layer surface which can be adjusted according to the anti-slip classification, even as a floor coating. The Top Coat is temperature-resistant (from -30 to +70 degrees Celsius), waterproof, UV and salt water-resistant. The colours of the varnish coatings can be freely chosen according to RAL or NCS and turn the object into an optical highlight.
wedi’s aim is to constantly further perfect its products in order to provide innovative solutions and continuous support for architects, retailers and tradesmen alike. This year the manufacturer will launch its new wellness cabin range with 9 different cabin designs. The range will feature various cabin geometry and roof design, comfortable seating or bath furniture and technical equipment. Customers will be able to pick their own personal wellness oasis from the standard wedi product range. Stay tuned.
