wooden floors. In contrast to traditional shower elements, the Fundo Ligno is adapted to the covering wood layer and as a result can be integrated into it wonderfully – without building up further height and without time-consuming levelling measures. In the case of the integrated model, it is sealed to the adjoining timber floor using the wedi Fundo sealing set. In the case of assembly on top of floorboards, height-adjusting wedi building boards are also used alongside the Fundo Ligno. In this case, only wedi 610 is used for sealing. Fundo Ligno – ideal for wood.
The wedi Fundo Ligno wet room tray former is itself 100% waterproof, including the core. This means that should it become damaged the tray former is still waterproof. If a Wedi Fundo Ligno tray is joined to wedi Building Board using the wedi 610 Hybrid Adhesive and Sealant, as per the manufacturer’s instructions, then that joint will be 100% waterproof.

wedi Fundo Ligno Installation Overview
The thickness of the wedi Fundo Ligno shower element is 20mm at the edges with a support plate — measuring 338 x 338mm — on the underside of the element, reinforcing
the drain opening area thus increasing the overall thickness of the tray to a total of 41mm.
1. A minimum of 44mm is required above the drain body to accommodate the shower element, so ensure to cut out the required piece of the flooring in order to incorporate both the drain and shower elements. A minimum of 44mm is required above the drain body to accommodate the shower element.
2. Install a supporting substructure for the drain body. Position and join the drainage to the pipework and reinsert the section of flooring.
3. Infill the recess with a sand cement mortar mix and smooth it in level with the top of the drain body ensuring that there is 20mm left to accommodate the support plate.
4. Insert the O-ring into the groove from above and screw the main sealing collar in.
5. Pre-treat the wooden surface with a suitable primer. Apply flexible cement-based tile adhesive across the entire surface of the underside of the shower element.
6. Insert the shower element into the recess, make sure it’s level and seal the entire perimeter of the shower element using a wedi Fundo Sealing set. Leave to set for 12 hours, once dried, tiling can commence.
The wedi Fundo Ligno drain substructure element is a pre-formed foam element which is specially designed to guarantee reliable support and accurate alignment of the drain, thus eliminating time consuming building and filling with mortar and screed. The installation process will be the same as above, except that no supporting substructure needed to be built. Once the drainage is positioned and joined to the pipework, reinsert the section of flooring, and continue with steps 4-6 (above) as normal.
