What Makes a Good System for Shower Waterproofing?

About a decade ago, a large builder expressed their frustration after yet another shower failed during the warranty period. In response, a group of industry professionals got together and began to examine how these leaks were occurring. After an exhaustive testing regime, it was found that the leaks were not the result of poor workmanship by commercial waterproofing contractors. Most of the fault lay with the design of the shower itself.

Testing using models and water coloured with dye showed that the traditional method of sealing the shower screen to the tiles allowed a water path through the porous grout and into the cavity between the tiles and the waterproofing membrane. The action of expansion and contraction effectively pumped water through this cavity and outside of the shower enclosure.

These industry professionals composed a list of requirements for the perfect system. This list included the following: a positive connection between the screen and the waterproofing membrane to eliminate the water path, a one piece design with no joins, compatibility with modern liquid membranes, a method to ensure the correct fall to waste, ease of installation, speed of tiling and screen fitment and a sleek, modern design that would fit in with existing customer decor.

Prototypes were made and tested in the field. After a process of testing, refining and testing again, Waterstop Streamline was born.
