When designing your wet room, one of the key components you need to consider is the drainage system. In order for a wet room to work you’ll need to fit the drain within the floor and there needs to be enough available floor depth to allow for the drain, falls in the floor and the waste water pipes. In some circumstances, floor depth availability may be limited, which is when a low profile wet room drain can be used.
We know that every inch of living space is important, whether that is in your own home or within residential developments. Wet rooms are a great use of space to replace the traditional bathroom. By incorporating a low profile wet room drain, you are able to reduce the floor depth to a minimum and still achieve the luxury experience provided by a wet room.
Low profile floor drains are also ideal for use where existing floor levels require modification to accommodate a wet room. The smaller required depth creates less opportunity to damage the structure of joints in the floor, which complies with building regulations as the strength of joists should never be compromised. Shallow wetroom drains are ideal for thin screed and concrete floors.
We offer a quality selection of premium low profile wet room drain choices. Starting from only 59mm deep, we have a full catalogue of low profile slimline drains with both mechanical traps and traditional 50mm water traps. All our low profile bathroom drains are available in a wide range of finishes including PVD colours.
Our low profile outlets are available in the following product ranges:
A low profile gully only requires a building depth of 64mm, and can offer greater flexibility as they can be wall mounted, or positioned anywhere on the wet room shower floor. Our range of slim drain solutions means you are flexible when it comes to choosing your ideal location for the water channel.
When it comes to installing a wet room drainage system, you need to determine your type of flooring to use in your wetroom. Depending on your chosen floor finish, you may need a drain with a low installation depth due to sub flooring constraints.
You will need to factor in your chosen floor finish depths when calculating your wet room measurements:
Once you have decided what style of wet room design suits you best, you can then choose your drain grate colour to fit in line with the rest of your wet room. You can pick from a selection of different materials, finishes and colours due to our wide range of low profile drain channel products.
Most of our coloured wet room shower drains are now available in the following metallic colours:

My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across Wet Room Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, Wet Room Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System p from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Wet Room Materials. They are a pleasure to deal with.

In Bright Designs, we understand the importance of specifying a reliable waterproofing system for bathrooms. We have worked on a number of projects with Wet Room Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The Wet Room Materials Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
