Alternative to a horizontal drain, Fundo floor elements can also be installed with a vertical drain. There is also the possibility to use a fire protection collar. The corresponding installation steps are explained below.
Step 1In the case of a vertical drain with fire protection collar, a bore hole of 16 cm should be drilled.
Step 2Installation of the fire protection collar element.
Step 3Fill the intermediate spaces of borehole and fire protection collar element with MG 2 or 3. If sound insulation is required, install Nonstep Plan.
Step 4Insert the drain base. Cut wedi Nonstep Plan to precisely the required size and lay it. Attach edge insulating strips if required.
Step 5For floor level installation, please be aware of the necessary difference between the top surface of the drain flange and the top surface of the recess.
Step 6Connect the wedi Fundo drain and fill the recess with a bonded levelling screed or slightly moist screed.
Step 7Compact and smooth it at the appropriate level.
Step 8Check drain position by loosely placing the wedi Fundo element and, if applicable, adjust drain position by adding new levelling screed.
Step 9Fit the O-ring from above into the plastic frame and screw down the shower base screw valve into seal insert..
Step 10Apply tile adhesive across the entire underside of the shower element.
Step 11Insert the shower element flush into the recess.
Step 12Seal the floor element and the building board joints using wedi 610 adhesive sealant.
Step 13Leave the tile adhesive to settle under low pressure for 12 hours.
Step 14Seal all joints and connection areas as well as transitions by using sealing tape and slurry sealant.
Step 15Adjust the drainage frame to the height of the top of the tiles including tile adhesive. With a tile thickness of more than 15 mm, the extension piece will need to be used for height adjustment.
Step 16Tile the element. Fit the shower insert and syphon.
Step 17Insert the stainless steel grate. The syphon can be removed and cleaned any time.
The Fundo Primo Easy Set was examined in combination with wedi Nonstep Plan and wedi Fundo in relation to noise insulation. This particular design achieves the increased noise insulation of SST3 ≤ 25 dB (A).
