The Lalit London will feature Schlüter-Systems’ integrated CE marked wetroom solution including Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE drainage system along with Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E underfloor heating.
The historic Grade II listed grammar school at Bankside in London, near the iconic Tower Bridge, is being converted into a 70-room boutique hotel, set to open at the end of 2016.
Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE drainage system was specified for the project and is a component linear drainage system for the construction of floor-level showers with ceramic tiles and natural stone. It consists of a formed stainless steel channel body with a grate and frame structure that can be seamlessly adjusted to the thickness of the covering from 3 to 25 mm.
The contemporary wetrooms were complimented with Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E electric underfloor heating system, which has uncoupling, crack-bridging and waterproofing properties and sits underneath the tile or natural stone covering to provide the ultimate comfort underfoot.
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E is now available with Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-TB matting. The revolutionary new Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-TB mat has an integrated thermal break that reduces heat loss into the screed and subfloor, and it also benefits from up to 70% quicker warm-up time than other electric underfloor heating.
