The difference between the kerdi shower and one built by traditional means is that the kerdi shower is completely waterproof. The membrane is made out of polyethylene with a bonding fleece on each side and is very durable. The kerdi drain is used instead of the regular three piece clamping drain and set in a sloped mud bed and the membrane is applied over the mud. Water cannot penetrate the membrane so it dries out very quickly after each use thus mold and mildew cannot grow.Tile is set directly on top of membrane using thinset.
THE SCHLUTER KERDI SHOWER – the shower of the future, is here now. Please contact us with any inquiries regarding this or any other tile project you have in mind.
The following are photos of the Schluter Kerdi Shower been installed by us.
