Little Russell Street, London

Project: Little Russell Street, London

A collection of refurbished upmarket apartments in central London which feature brand new luxury wet rooms are protected by the best in the business after the installation of Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER from Schlüter-Systems.

Five highly specified homes on Little Russell Street, close to the British Museum, all now feature this modular system which offers a revolutionary approach to tiling and is an ideal solution for perfect yet easy tile covering for walk-in showers, after being installed by representatives from Hemel Hempstead-based Tile Shapes.

This also included the installation of Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE, an aesthetically pleasing linear drainage channel which offers an alternative to regular drains and shower trays.

Daniel Haynes, Contracts Director at Tile Shapes, comments, “This project saw us install the Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER system in each of the five apartments, both in a wet room and an en suite bathroom from the master bedroom. What I like about products from Schlüter-Systems is that they have products available for every possible situation. They are all designed to link in together, such as this wet room system, and I know that whatever a project may require and no matter its complexity, Schlüter will be able to specify the exact products to be used.”

Ian Knifton, Divisional Manager at Schlüter-Systems, comments, “The popularity of installing wet rooms at home continues to grow with a number of brand new and refurbished apartments, such as these in London, all now featuring luxury bathrooms. Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER is a modular system for the construction of floor level showers with ceramic tiles which stands out for its particularly easy and reliable installation and leaves the customer with a wet room of the highest possible standard.

He added, “Installing a wet room with Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER or the Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE linear drainage channel can help create a more attractive space, can suit a range of contemporary designs, has the flexibility of not having to be a pre-determined size or shape and offers an ideal substrate for an excellent finish with tile or natural stone.”

“Its pre-sloped surface makes tiling simple and there are four different sized sloped boards available. These can be combined with waterproofing sets for wall and floor drains, with optional use of base levelling panels. The elements that make up Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER can easily be adapted for the construction of circular shower designs due to precut grooves.”

The elements that make up Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER can easily be adapted for the construction of circular shower designs due to pre-cut grooves. These are Schlüter®-KERDI-DRAIN-BASE, an especially low floor drain that is suitable for the installation of conventional barrier free shower designs or for combination with Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER floor elements; Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER-SK, a waterproofing set for floor level showers; and either Schlüter®- KERDI-SHOWER-T or Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER-TC which are sloped substrate boards for the direct installation of tiles in floor level showers.
