The wedi floor-level shower elements Fundo Riolito and Fundo Riofino are also perfectly suitable for channel drainage on wooden surfaces. The below installation steps – shown with Riolito – are applicable to both channel options.
Step 1Cut out the required piece of flooring in order to incorporate the drain element.
Step 2Connection and positioning of the drain body to the pipe. The upper edge of the drain flange should be at the same height as the wooden floor.
Step 3Fill the box work element with mortar up to the upper edge of the drain flange. Ensure that the mortar is laid as a solid bed in the area around the drain.
Step 4Reinsert the previously cut sections of flooring.
Step 5If necessary, pre-treat the wooden surface with primer before bonding the element.
Step 6Attach the sealing collar to the back of the Fundo with 4 screws. Hand-tighten the screws.
Step 7Apply tile adhesive to the entire underside of Fundo Riolito, and bond it to the substrate.
Step 8Apply wedi 610 adhesive sealant to the building board joints. Level off the adjacent area of wooden floor using 50 mm thick wedi building boards.
Step 9Seal the joints with the wedi 610 adhessive sealant and wedi Tools reinforcement tape. Then, install the wedi Fundo Riolito profile.
Step 10aUse the enclosed tiling guides. They ensure the correct distance between cover and tile is maintened.
Step 10bAs an alternative, the enclosed frame clamping pieces can be used to create a tile profile frame around the drain. The tile clamping pieces shold be removed before grouting.
