SoulCycle is part of the new activity taken over the health and fitness world – spinning. SoulCycle provides a state-of-the-art experience for all clients, from bikes and exercise machines, bold and vibrant interior décor, to the facility’s changing and shower areas functionality. One of the most iconic indoor cycling brands in the US opened its first studio in London in 2019. Wetroom Materials supplied linear and point drainage to SoulCycle’s numerous studios across London.
As SoulCycle has developed and grown its brand, it has an expectation to provide an excellent experience to its clients. This includes not only the service they provide, but the quality of the facilities themselves.
Wetroom Materials were asked to provide a drainage solution for the shower areas in the commercial project. The drains had to meet the aesthetic, functionality and durability that would be demanded of them by such a project.
There was little space within the floor build up for the drainage to be placed, which also required a large capacity in order to take the large volume of water that would be displaced by the commercial shower areas. Not only this, but the time frame that was suggested was extremely quick and Wetroom Materials had to act fast to provide a solution that fit the criteria of the build.
Wetroom Materials worked closely with the appointed fitout company to present a drainage solution to the client that would meet the requirements of the challenging project.
A singular drainage option would not be suited to be installed throughout the project; therefore, multiple drainage options were used to best match the requirements of each individual shower area. This was achieved by Wetroom Materials providing its expert knowledge during the entire specification and installation process to ensure the best solution was provided across the project.
In addition, Wetroom Materials created the falls in the showers using a specialist wet room screed and installed waterproofing membranes to the showers and changing rooms. With this, the client was able to take advantage of our 10 Year no leak guarantee.
With over 50 spinners, and classes every 45 minutes, the performance and longevity of the shower facilities are essential, so only the best products and installation methods were suitable.
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."
