Wall Building Panels

Product information

wedi Building Panels are needed for the shower walls. They are the ultimate versatile wet room tile backer board, and often used within the range of wedi shower systems and walls, floors, countertops, and many more applications.

wedi Building Panels can be applied to shower walls and wet areas horizontally or vertically. This allows more flexibility with your wedi panel installation. The panels are fastened quickly and easily in place using wedi screws & washers. The wedi Building Panel combines a tile backer board and waterproofing into one step–providing a safe system installation. Once the panels are secured and seams/fasteners sealed with wedi Joint Sealant, tiling can begin immediately as soon as the sealant dries to the touch. This saves considerable time and money compared to traditional methods. Its solid waterproof core eliminates concerns like pinholes/voids as well as delamination typically associated with alternative waterproofing products.wedi Building Panel has set the  premium standard level for foam core tile backer boards because it is not only inherently waterproof and lightweight, but it also provides a perfect bond surface for tile setting and is a strong backing for the tile. When installing wedi Building Panel it cuts cleanly and exact. Seams, transitions and fastener locations are prepared in safe and waterproof manner and without creating build up to ensure a great tiling experiemnce and result.

The wedi Building Panel has been successfully tested under ANSI 118.10 (test standard for load-bearing, bonded, waterproof membranes) as well as ASTM C578 ( Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Insulation).

 wedi Building panels are:

  • For Shower, Tub & Wet Room Walls and Ceilings
  • Ready for tiling upon installation
  • 100% waterproof due to its extruded polystyrene (closed cell) foam core
  • Easy and clean to cut to size using a utility knife, circular saw or handsaw
  • Available in sizes and thicknesses that can accommodate different projects and applications
