Tub Surround Kit
wedi Building Panels are the natural choice for use with tub or tray walls and tub enclosures. The panels can be installed
directly to framing or over gypsum board, cement board, or directly to solid wood or concrete structures to create a
waterproof underlayment for tile. They can be easily scored and shaped to provide radius surfaces on tub skirts and
do not scratch tubs or fixtures during installation.
Additionally, the dimensions of the wedi Building Panels make for quick installations with standard tubs – laid horizontally the panel will span the full five foot width. Cut out a notch at the bottom edge of a wedi Building Panel and safely connect to a tub flange with just a bead of wedi Joint Sealant in between to safely waterproof this critical connection and create plumb walls, square wall corner areas as well as a full backing for the tile all the way down to the tub‘s horizontal perimeter area.
Due to its waterproof nature, it’s easy to see why you’d use wedi Building Panels in wet areas. The panels do not wick water from the tub perimeter along which water will traverse. wedi Building Panels can be applied directly to studs or over other suitable non-waterproof surfaces to create a waterproof underlayment for tile and can also be used on tub decks and backsplashes or to quickly place complete tub wall surrounds safely.
When installing a tub surround wall for a tub or shower tray with only partial or no nailing flange, wedi’s tub sealing tape can be used. It features a waterproofing butyl adhesion strip which can safely connect tub edge and framing before a wedi Building Panel is placed before it. The Tub sealing tape also helps with creating safe, waterproof transitions from tubs to horizontal areas adjacent to such tubs.
