Impey announces 2017 wetroom training dates

Following a sell-out 2016 ‘We Are Wetrooms’ UK tour, Impey has announced eleven new wetroom training dates for 2017.

Understanding how to design and fit a wetroom is an essential plumbing skill in today’s market.  Growth of the wetrooms sector across domestic, commercial and healthcare markets is set to continue into 2017 and beyond. And now, more than ever before, installers need to ensure they are fully confident in wetroom fitting to take advantage of new-business opportunities.

In 2016, responding to increased demand, Impey identified the need for informative ‘hands-on’ wetroom installation training and decided to take its training programme on the road. After a year of sell-out dates, a hugely positive response from attendees and unrelenting demand for more dates throughout 2017, Impey has announced the ‘We are Wetrooms’ Training Tour dates for the new year.

The ‘We are Wetrooms’ tour 2017, which kicks off in March, incorporates extensive training on all Impey’s wetroom solutions, including the AquaDec EasyFit floor former and the AquaDec Linear floor former; floor formers designed with the installer in mind. Plus, the Waterguard tanking solution, and the AquaGrade and AquaGrade Linear screed templates for new pour concrete floors.

The schedule for the day covers the following areas:

  • Wetroom installation and floor formers
  • Wetroom installation into a wooden or concrete floor
  • How to achieve the correct wetroom gradient
  • Effective drainage
  • Leak-free water proofing
  • How to correctly tile on a floor former or wetroom tray

A precisely tailored programme and small group sizes ensure that there is plenty of opportunity for all attendees to interact in the ‘hands on’ demonstrations and participate in one to one Q&As with the Impey training team, led by Technical Manager, Shaun Hunt.

One 2016 course attendee, Chris from CP Bathrooms, commented: “It was a really great wetroom installation course; superb content and great value for money. Got all I wanted and much more out of the day.”

The ‘We are Wetrooms’ tour visits eleven easy-access sporting venues, giving installers across the UK the opportunity to learn essential wetroom fitting skills at a convenient location. The day starts at 9.30am and finishes circa 3pm.
