ACO launches dedicated wetroom products to meet growing demand

Published:  02 August, 2017

Domestic wetroom installations have been on the rise over the last 10 years and the trend shows no sign of abating. ACO Water Management’s Building and Landscaping division has expanded its product portfolio to include a dedicated range of wetroom channels and gullies.

The new offering will give housebuilders and contractors the option of sourcing all their internal and external water management systems from one supplier. Suitable for both newbuild and retrofit wetroom applications, ACO’s new wetroom range will include the ShowerDrain C Line system, and ACO Shower Gullies.

The ShowerDrain C Line range is a stainless steel shower drainage system with an integrated removable foul air trap. The channel is available in lengths from 585mm to 1,185mm, and with four different grating designs including the Wave, Quadrato, Slot and Tile styles. The ShowerDrain C Line system will provide a sleek yet functional finish to any wetroom project, according to the company.

The range features a 50mm spigot outlet for integration into the wider plumbing network, and delivers a flowrate of 0.5-0.8 l/s, depending on its proximity to both the showerhead and the wall.

ACO’s new range of wetroom solutions also includes a gully system for use within tiled floors. With eight different 150mm square grating designs – all manufactured from electro-polished stainless steel – to choose from, ACO’s new Shower Gullies come in horizontal or vertical outlet variants, meaning they are easy to install in both suspended and solid floor constructions. Delivering a flow rate of 1.2 l/s, the compact outlet also benefits from a foul air trap with 50mm water seal.

Both the ShowerDrain C Line and Shower Gully ranges are manufactured to the BS EN 1253 standard for gullies for buildings.
