Education wet areas

Showers, bathrooms, toilet areas, swimming pool surrounds, changing rooms, spa tuition areas, wet play areas, en-suite bedrooms

These areas demand impervious floors, walling and ceilings, plus safety underfoot for all users. This includes people who are wearing shoes and those who are barefoot, enabling everyone to remain safe in both wet and dry.

Easy cleanability to minimise maintenance requirements is a must and resistance to most cleaning chemicals and staining is important. Impervious surfaces, welded jointing, coveability and compatibility with drainage are also necessary.
