Plattsburgh, NY. December, 2012—Schluter-Systems is changing the way tiled bathrooms are built. In attendance at various conferences, Schluter-Systems will be presenting the Next Generation Bathroom, focusing on new materials and construction methods that combine moisture management, accessibility, and design.

"Market demand is changing the way we approach the renovation and construction of bathrooms," said Schluter- Systems President, Reinhard Plank. "With a growing aging population, we're now looking at breaking barriers in the bathroom to provide increased accessibility, security, and independence. At the same time, we understand that moisture management is the cornerstone of durability in the bathroom, so we are providing waterproof building components that make this a possibility."

The components of the Next Generation Bathroom include a focus on moisture management materials, such as the Schluter®-KERDI-LINE linear drain, and Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD building panels. The Schluter®-KERDI bonded waterproofing membrane and vapor retarder protects shower walls and
floors, preventing moisture from penetrating into any building materials, and allowing the assembly to dry between uses.

" The focus of the Next Generation Bathroom is to create an integrated moisture management solution, where all the components complement each other and work together to create tiled showers that are designed to last, and look beautiful."

The newest preformed shower component to join the Schluter-Systems line of products for building tiled showers is the shower niche. The niche is designed to provide a convenient alternative to building with drywall, with the added benefits of being waterproof and quick and easy to install. The niche complements an already wide array of preformed shower components available, including shower trays, curbs, ramps, and benches. All of these components help installers build waterproof and vapor tight tiled showers more quickly and effectively than with traditional construction materials.
