Impey Tilesafe® tanking membrane has been designed to provide an
instant heavy-duty watertight barrier to your wetroom - preventing
leaks and providing complete peace of mind.
How does it work?
Waterproofing or 'tanking' a wetroom involves applying a
waterproof layer to the floor and walls of the shower zone because
no matter how well the tiles have been fixed, over time water will
always find a way through the tiles/grout which can lead to leaks
and costly repairs.
Beware of the load weights on plaster, plasterboard walls when
using large format tiles. Impey Tilesafe® is a flexible
rubberised self-adhesive membrane sheet that incorporates a tiling
mesh that comes on a roll and once applied there is no curing time
so it is possible fix the tiles the same day.
Available in 5m and 10m sizes complete with lifetime guarantee
How much will I need?
For complete peace of mind and a guaranteed leak-free wetroom
Impey recommend that Impey Tilesafe® is applied over the entire
floor of the wetroom.
Impey Tilesafe® should be applied to a minimum height of 75mm
where the walls of the room meet the floor. In each kit you will
- 5m2 or 10m2 of Impey Tilesafe® tanking membrane
- Bottle of Tilesafe® primer

ONLY suitable for use with the Aquamat 100 undertile
heating system. Other systems may run at higher temperatures
and compromise the integrity of the tanking system.
