  • Preparing Shower Base Area Centre Waste

Marking floor area for shower base

Flip around the shower base to check out the base situation on both the floor and divider studs, mark stud at a level of 90mm over the current floor. Before cutting the floor, diminish the border of the slice out by 8mm to consider checking and caulking the hole between the base and floor.

To check the wall studs and bottom wall plate, it is recommended to cut out the flooring.

Please note: It is according to AS1684

Divider studs to be checked/indented should not be more than 18mm and the base divider plate checkout should not be more than 12mm or the upstand thickness of the base.

If the waste outlet is hindered by a current joist, re-arrangement and extra joists will be expected to enough help the base and floor. This ought to be finished by an authorized trade individual.

Guarantee the region where the base will sit is plumb/level preceding fitting base.

Any other way, change, and the pack was required while finishing extra help set out beneath. If the floor/substrate that the shower base is introduced upon isn’t plumb and level preceding fixing the shower base it won’t proceed as expected. This will cause issues with the water stream and could eventually void guarantee/claims because of the inaccurate establishment.

To support the shower base Centre waste

Below are the two methods for the same.

Method 1: Attaching shelf supports directly into joists.

Where the shower base is to be fitted, introduce extra noggins/clippers between joists at 300mm centres. According to the chart beneath, consider the place of the waste outlet. Introduce clippers/noggins around all edges of the shower base guaranteeing the shower base and floor are upheld.

Method 2: Using floored fitted between joists for full support. 

In the area where the shower base is to be fitted, introduce clippers/spikes (90mm × 35mm (F17)) which should be lined up with the floor joists. They ought to be introduced at a level comparable to the thickness of the deck being utilized, in this manner is lower than the current floor joists. Flooring is to be fixed with fluid nails and nailed on top of clippers between the current joists. Refer to the image below.

After appropriate plumbing is needed to connect the shower base in position and ready for connection, this process is to be done after completing all important Dandy support for the shower base and before gluing the base into position.

Divider studs to be checked/indented should not be more than 18mm and the base divider plate checkout should not be more than 12mm or the upstand thickness of the base.

If the waste outlet is hindered by a current joist, re-arrangement and extra joists will be expected to sufficiently help the base and floor. This ought to be finished by an authorized trade individual.

Guarantee the region where the base will sit is plumb/level preceding fitting base.

Any other way, change, and the pack was required while finishing extra help set out beneath.

To support the shower base with rear waste

Below are the two methods for the same.

Method 1: Attaching self supports directly into joists along with additional trimmers.

Where the shower base is to be fitted, introduce extra noggins/clippers between joists at 300mm centers. According to the chart beneath considering the place of the waste outlet. Introduce clippers/noggins around all edges of the shower base guaranteeing the shower base and floor are upheld.

Steps for gluing the shower base

  It is necessary to ensure that the base is dry and dust-free before gluing.

Method 1: Use “polyurethane sealant cement” in a persistent snake-like bead (at least 10 mm in width) to all clippers and joists. Next, Attach the base into position and refrain from sliding it towards the adhesive beads. Weight each corner down, utilizing loads no heavier than 5kg per corner and something like 30kg max, for at least 24 hours.

Method 2: Use “polyurethane sealant cement” in a persistent snake-like bead (at least 10 mm in width) to all clippers, joists, and also flooring and should not be greater than 75mm distance. Next, Attach the base into position and refrain from sliding it towards the adhesive beads. Weight each corner down, utilizing loads no heavier than 5kg per corner and something like 30kg max, for at least 24 hours.

Rear Waste

Configuration for rear waste outlet Dandy:

Below are the two methods.

  • Rear Waste gluing configuration

While placing deck and tile underlay leave a 5-6mm hole between base/tile underlay to caulk with polyurethane. You ought to have sanded the shower base sides presented to room according to guidance at straightforward takes a look at before fitting base.

If the sides of the base are not checked then it can be trimmed for the desired result, after the underlay tile is fitted.

  • Trimming the lips once the tile underlay has been fitting to the bathroom.

All shower bases accompany four lips which can be managed/changed according to the demand and this can be done by utilizing a multi-tool such as a wood saw, hacksaw sharp edge, and so forth.

Waterproofing the Shower Base

Our shower bases are water repellent, but they should be waterproofed to follow flow Codes and Standards/(NCC/BCA and AS3740), this will likewise consider better attachment between tile cement and layer. There is a rundown of waterproof films tried with our shower bases on page 12. However, most “polyurethane” waterproof films will be viable. We suggest that a test fix be finished before the full utilization of your selected waterproofing to guarantee adhesion. Contact our specialized support help for additional guidance if you are uncertain.

Notes:

Waterproofing ought to constantly be finished by a Licensed Waterproofer to follow Codes and Standards to achieve a Certificate of Compliance for building grant and Insurance organization compliancy.

It is important that the waterproofing membranes must meet the requirements of AS3740 by complying with AS/NZ  4858. 

It is prescribed to utilize cements, pastes and waterproof layers of a similar production to guarantee any guarantee claims on the off chance that they emerge.

Bond breaker tapes/bars/caulking to be utilized related to the waterproofing film on every single inward point/corners where the shower base meets the divider and floor intersections to meet prerequisites of momentum NCC/BCA/AS3740.

 Try not to obstruct the break control/puddle rib outlet with waterproofing. The waterproofing can be halted at the edge of puddle rib meeting AS3740 necessity.

Tiling:

Slice your tiles according to the fall of  shower base. Continuously scoop pastes towards the waste, utilizing the right tile glue that relates with the waterproofing framework that you have utilized.

By not utilizing similar producer’s suggested item they may not respect their guarantees in the event that a case emerges. For data on tiling, kindly contact an expert tiler.

This diminishes the capacity of the rib to empty the water out of underneath the tile bed, water creates a reservoir like structure under the tiles (called damming) and consistent use sees water travel to any mark of leaving it might find, so the utilization of water stops forestalls water voyaging any farther than the shower region.

 Tiling and waterproofing should be done as per the BCA/NCC and other important principles.

  • Adhesive and grouts

The majority of the concrete-based items including grouts and glues are somewhat permeable. This permits a negligible measure of water to enter the grout and underneath the tiles, which is typical and permits the puddle spine to proceed as expected to deplete water.

    • Water likes to travel

     Do not rake across the base, ensuring that your trowel glues towards the waste.

     Try not to impede/fill the puddle spine with tiling glues, grout, or silicones.

     Any water retained in the grout or that movement through the tile bed is required to deplete down the waste outlet.
