One of London’s most exclusive and luxurious hotels has used Schlüter-Systems products as part of its grand refurbishment. The Lanesborough Hotel, in Hyde Park Corner, is in the process of extensive renovations which are being carried out by the late, world renowned interior designer, Alberto Pinto.
Schlüter-Systems played a part in the major refurbishment by providing a host of products to the project including unique tile substrate Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD.
The lightweight but extremely strong product offers the perfect solution for creating bonded waterproofing assemblies for tile coverings and can also be used as a structural panel. Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD is 100 per cent waterproof, cement free, lightweight and completely even and flat, making it the ideal substrate for tiling. The product is also thermally insulating, quick and easy to install and contains no cement or fibreglass making it eco-friendly, whilst its fleece webbing allows for easy anchoring in thin-bed mortar.
The new and improved Lanesborough guest rooms also boast a second-to-none under floor heating system, provided by Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E.
This unique system is the perfect all-in-one integrated solution for use under tiles and natural stone flooring and is unlike anything else available due to its loose heating cables which are fixed down to the uncoupling mat free of tape as a result of its unique studded design. Offering freedom for creating concentrated heating zones, and providing uniform spacing without the need for measuring and marking, the new system can cut installation time by up to 70 per cent.
Carl Stokes, Head of Marketing at Schlüter-Systems Ltd, commented, “We’re delighted that Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E and Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD, along with other products, have been used in the extensive refurbishment of such a prestigious hotel to help speed up the installation of underfloor heating and creating the flattest and most even substrate to tile on to.”
