Tub walls and tub enclosures
Tub wall surround application wedi Building Panels are the natural choice for use with tub walls and tub enclosures. The panels can be installed directly to framing or over gypsum, cement or wood underlayment products to create a waterproof underlayment for tile. They can be easily scored and shaped to provide radius surfaces on tub skirts and do not scratch tubs or fixtures during installation. Additionally, the dimensions of the wedi Building Panels make for quick installations with standard tubs – laid horizontally the panel will span the full five foot width. Cut out a notch at the bottom edge of a wedi Building Panel and safely connect to a tub flange with just a bead of wedi joint sealant in between to safely waterproof this critical connection and create plumb walls, square wall corner areas as well as a full backing for the tile all the way down to the tub's horizontal perimeter area.
