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 fungusWhat’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 boards900mm 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.

Further technical information, image galleries and product specifications are available through the wedi website or via the BPi Download Library.

wedi Fundo shower elements – economical, secure, accessible

May 2022

Foundations for individual shower designs

A tiled floor-level shower or rather a bathtub with a shower? A fundamental question that has a lasting impact on the design and character of any bathroom. As a base under the tile, wedi Fundo shower elements create almost limitless design possibilities, both in renovation and new build projects.

Conveniently flat and easy to install, safe in the system and 100% waterproof: in many different formats and with either linear or point drainage, the wedi Fundo series serves as the foundation for individual shower designs. The universal design of these elements creates shower enclosures that are safe to use by all generations. Thanks to the low construction height, they are equally suitable for refurbishments as well as for new buildings. Owing to these characteristics, the wedi Fundo range was named brand of the century in 2022 – in the 'floor-level showers in unique position' category. Brands that exemplify an entire product range are proactively selected for this award.

Shower pan vs. tileable Fundo shower element

Compared to conventional shower trays, a tileable shower floor has many advantages, for example maximum design flexibility. While a stone resin or acrylic shower tray comes in a fixed size, tileable shower elements can be adapted to the bathroom and individual shapes or cut-outs are also possible. This allows the available space to be used optimally which is a decisive advantage, especially in small bathrooms. The appearance can also be individually adapted, for example, floor tiling can be extended into the shower. Bathrooms can therefore be created with a unified surface design, optically amplifying the available space. wedi elements have a high degree of prefabrication and a precise gradient integrated during manufacturing, making the construction of tiled shower spaces straightforward. The construction process becomes particularly easy for the installer thanks to the reduced installation time and labour. Hence, the Fundo series offers maximum safety by protecting the substrate from water damage in the best possible way.

The right surface cover

After installation, there are no limits to the design of a floor-level shower element: in addition to traditional tiling, cladding with e.g. matching Top surfaces is also possible. The wedi Top series is not only large-format and seamless, but also low-maintenance and hygienic. It scores with its non-slip properties, creating a secure feel in every situation. Step-by-step, the practical wedi shower configurator guides users through various options, helps choosing the appropriate element as well as the drainage, returning a list of recommended products tailored to the specific requirement.

The wedi Top Line is one of the winners of the iF Design Award 2022

May 2022

The iF Design Award has been presented since 1953 and is one of the most renowned design awards in the world. The iF label is not only a reliable sign for the design community, but also provides an important guide to great design for consumers. This year, design surfaces of the wedi Top Line series are also among the winners of the coveted award as "Ready-to-install design surfaces for shower and bath".

Award for the wedi Top Line

In 2022, more products were submitted to the iF Design Award than ever before: more than 10.000 products were judged by the jury, which honours special design annually. The seamless Top design surfaces from wedi were awarded in the "Textiles, wall and floor" category. The range boasts preformed, perfectly matched surfaces for a large number of wedi Fundo shower elements, as well as for selected wedi functional design elements, and also offers special surfaces for attractive wall and surface cladding. In five stylish colours, they are suitable for aesthetic surface design in the bathroom. While stone grey, carbon black, sahara beige and concrete grey come with an elegant natural stone look, the pure white shines with its homogeneous surface. In addition to the mineral natural stone components, the completely coloured material is made of a fully recycled base material, which is emission and pollutant-free. Besides their appearance, the well thought out products score with quick and straightforward installation. They are equally suitable for new builds, renovation and modernisations.
