Wet rooms are practical alternatives to traditional bathrooms. Completely waterproof, a wet room can be attached to a bathroom for a large shower enclosure or encompass all the bathroom fixtures. Wet rooms are excellent choices for an easy-to-clean bathroom, contemporary shower spaces and safe for the elderly or disabled person.
Wet rooms can either be additions or retrofitted into an existing space. First, the floor of the bathroom is fitted with a gradient fall shower tray former. Shower tray formers drop right into the floor and are sloped to allow water to drain. Waste pumps are added if the pre-existing drainage system is not adequately sloped, but in 80% of cases we find there is no need for the pump.
Absolute Mobility can design a wet room to feature a stand up or sit down shower. Most wet room surrounds are tile, but floors may be finished with anti-slip vinyl for safety. The slope to a wet room is gradual, but it can be eliminated entirely. Finishing materials can be installed over the formers in such a way to conceal the slope.
For a finished “shower” look or to prevent splashing into other areas of the wet room, durable glass shower screens can be installed. Half-height doors, disability access screens or even full glass enclosures are all possibilities.
Additions can be made for the disabled and elderly to make a wet room safer. Most wet room’s designs are already wheelchair-accessible, and the floors can be made completely level. Shower seats, grab rails and pull down shower heads are easy to add.
