Wetrooms”UK has been selected to supply level-entry wet room systems and install waterproofing solutions into 97 ensuite bathrooms at Malmaison – a boutique hotel that has been strikingly convered from a traditional brick-built nurses’ home.
Wetrooms UK recommended a Modular Wet-Floor system for each bathroom at Malmaison – the perfect solution for timber floors as it allows any size or shape of wet room to be created quickly on a timber floor, whilst enabling the drain to be situated in almost any position within the bathroom.
Following the installation of the tapered board with built-in two way falls, a waterless drainage trap and contemporary stainless steel grill were fitted, capable of coping with the flow rates of up to 29l/min.
RIW Tilesafe waterproof membrane was then applied to the floor and wall junctions across the entire shower area of each ensuite. RIW Flexible Wall Membrane was applied full height to the shower walls linking to the floor membrane, to prevent any water penetration.
“We’ve worked with Wetrooms UK and their wetroom products on previous projects and felt confident that the quality of their wetroom systems and waterproofing membranes would prove ideal for this hotel project,” says Alan Cushen, Paton”Developments.
“Their 10 year waterproofing guarantee offers peace of mind to a luxury hotel chain like Malmaison.”
