Building a Seat Or Bench
Custom Shower Seats and Benches made easy and onsite from wedi Building Panel
wedi offers prefabricated seats and benches which can be quickly integrated into a shower system installation.
If a custom size is required for the seat or bench you can also use our thicker versions of the wedi building Panel, like our 2 inch thick panel, and safely build them on site.
Possible designs include suspended wall-mounted corner seats as well as benches which rest on the shower floor.
Using wedi panel allows you to build a seat or bench in a fraction of the time it takes to conventionally frame out a support, cover it with plywood and backer board, and then waterproof it.
With wedi Building Panel all this is combined in one product that is shaped, installed and ready for tile. This process also allows the tile setter to build the seat or bench exactly fitting the final dimensions which are ideal for the individual tile layout and design.
The wedi Benches, whether prefabricated out of the box or built onsite, can handle the weight of tile and users. Based on models and designs, the load capability even before tile finish ranges between 250 pounds for onsite made wall suspended corner seats ( 350 pounds for the prefabricated wall suspended corner seats) to far over 500 pounds for the seats and benches which rest on the shower floor and can be attached to shower walls.
