Q. How big a problem is water leakage from around baths and shower trays?

that time it has been recognised for its benefits within the construction industry, receiving Best Interior Product and Best Design Innovation at Plan Expo, Dublin 2006.

A. It is difficult for obvious reasons to get statistical information on the extent of the problem from leading developers. However we do know that around 85% of all call backs to new homes are related to this problem. Even if you have not had personal experience of the problem you will know of someone who has.

Q. How user friendly is Classi Seal?

Q. Does the problem stem from bad workmanship?

A. No. This problem arises from movement. This has been realised and documented in Chapter 1.2 of the NHBC standards, `A Consistent Approach to Finishes' which states; "A gap of up to 5mm can be expected between the floor finish and the bottom of the skirting in a newly completed home, but may increase because of drying out shrinkage and deflection, particularly in timber floors. A gap of up to 10mm is normal but exceptionally 15mm may be seen where timber floors have long spans or there are heavy items of furniture on the floor".

A. Fitting Classi-Seal is remarkably simple, and for an installer should take no more than a matter of minutes. The backing paper is removed and Classi Seal is pressed on by hand. With no cure time the seal can be tiled over immediately. Paul Maddocks, Managing Director of Heatforce says: "Classi-Seal has been like a revolution to our engineers using the product, not only on social housing but on private customer installations. We now use the product on all installations; it is so clean and easy to use, very flexible and gives us and our client's peace of mind and the confidence to reduce ongoing maintenance costs."

Q. What makes Classi Seal the perfect solution?

A. Classi Seal will allow for movement of at least 15mm between shower tray or bath and wall, whilst still maintaining a watertight seal.

A. Classi-Seal contains patented technology which guarantees the effectiveness of the seal in corners. The blue upstand is easily manipulated by hand to accommodate corners which are not perfectly square, so as not to interfere with the laying of tiles. The flexibility of the upstand also allows the strip to be fitted against walls of uneven finish with ease, making it suitable for new builds or older properties alike. n For more information or a product sample, contact Classic Marble using the details below.
