SharpDrain Square Overview
The SharpDrain Square wet room drain is manufactured from PP Plastic (Polypropylene) which is extremely strong ensuring a safe installation. SharpDrain Square has a capacity of 48 l/min and can be easily cleaned by removing the tile insert / panel and trap. The trap is an anti-odour dry trap which cannot dry out. The drain is approved to comply with building regulations for wet room trapped gullies, waste and drains.
We recommend the falls are created using LIP 226 specialist wet room screed which is extremely strong and fibre reinforced, it can work from 2mm thick which is required when screeding to a wet room drain.
SharpDrain Square is available with a frame and grate. There a collection of coloured panels which can be reversed for a tile insert, giving you two covers in one and the flexibility to change design if required. SharpDrain Square is available in brushed stainless steel, black, brass, nickel and bronze. All coloured wet room drains are PVD coated which is a very durable coating that will not tarnish or fade over time.
All wet rooms need to be waterproofed. The approved membrane for Unidrain is LIP VS30 which is an easy to apply paint-on liquid waterproofing membrane. It is designed to stretch and move with your building. The membrane is 100% waterproof and dries as one continuous sheet. Tested to international standards – ETAG 022-1 certified and very low emissions – EC1 Plus approved. We also recommend SharpBoard, used to provide the perfect surface to tile onto and for waterproofing shower walls and floor outside shower.

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."
