The Only One-Stop Wetroom Wholesaler
Why is a Tanking Membrane needed?
Although all our underlay floor formers are fully waterproof, all the joints and corners are susceptible to leakage. The membrane integrates the walls with the floor to provide a continuous impervious layer.
What is the choice of membranes?
We are the only stockists of all three types . All remain flexible when installed.
