wedi Building Panels are needed for shower walls and combine a tile backer board and waterproofing into one step–providing a safe system installation.
They are the ultimate versatile wet room tile backer board, and often used within the range of wedi shower systems for walls, floors, countertops, and more. wedi Building Panels can be applied either horizontally or vertically to shower walls and wet areas, which allows more flexibility with your wedi panel installation. The panels are fastened quickly and easily in place using wedi screws & washers. Once the panels are secured and seams & fasteners sealed with wedi Joint Sealant, tiling can begin immediately after the sealant dries to the touch. This saves considerable time and money compared to traditional methods.
wedi Building Panel has set the premium standard level for foam core tile backer boards because it is not only inherently waterproof and lightweight, but it also provides a perfect bond surface for tile setting and is a strong backing for the tile. Its solid waterproof core eliminates concerns like pinholes/voids and delamination typically associated with alternative waterproofing products. Seams, transitions, and fastener locations are prepared in a safe and waterproof manner without creating build up to ensure a great tiling experience and result.
The wedi Building Panel has been successfully tested under ANSI 118.10 (test standard for load-bearing, bonded, waterproof membranes) as well as ASTM C578 (Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Insulation).
wedi Building panels are:
- For showers, tub & wet room walls and ceilings
- Ready for tiling upon installation
- 100% waterproof due to their extruded polystyrene (closed-cell) foam core
- Easy and clean to cut to size using a utility knife, circular saw, or handsaw
- Available in sizes and thicknesses that can accommodate different projects and applications
