Shower upgrades for indoor swimming complex in Brand

The remodelling of shower and toilet facilities in Aachen's Brand municipal indoor swimming complex required quick and reliable work of lasting quality – at short notice. Along with the Schlüter-KERDI-LINE linear drainage system, the facility was fitted with durable, easy-care stainless steel profiles.

The drainage channels made of V4A stainless steel are corrosion-resistant and fulfil the more stringent requirements of the swimming pool sector.

Following a legionella infestation, the shower and toilet facilities in the Brand indoor swimming complex in the Aachen district of the same name had to be renovated at short notice. As part of the renovation, the women's and men's shower areas, showers for the disabled along with the corresponding toilet facilities were completely fitted with Schlüter-KERDI-LINE linear drainage during the restoration. "Overall, we installed 29 channels with a total length of more than 40 m to replace the previous point drains." recounted Thomas Kessels, the managing director of Keramikbau Kessels GmbH.

Due to the existing slope and drainage situation of the site, we quickly decided in favour of Schlüter drainage channels, since everyone agreed they were the best solution.

Durable products made from high-quality stainless steel

"In the scope of the renovation, we not only created new drains, but also made use of the existing floor drain by installing channels of different lengths." Because of the special installation situation, various KERDI-LINE models in lengths ranging from 1 m to 1.80 m were used, all made of stainless steel V4A.

Schlüter-DILEX-HKS provides a durable, maintenance-free, hygienic solution at transitions from the floor to the wall and in internal wall corners. Just like the stainless steel Schlüter-SCHIENE that waterproofs the tiles at the external corners of the wall, the profile is easy to clean and is therefore ideally suited for such a hygienically sensitive location. In the door areas, Kessels also worked with the DILEX-EKSN movement joint profile.
