The practical box is set into the screed and integrated in the compound seal in accordance with the standard – eliminating the need for additional sealing tape to seal baths and slightly raised shower trays.
Plug-and-play solution saves working time
The installation box Easy Connect is a plug-and-play solution for the safe connection of built-in and free-standing baths, flat and ultra-flat shower trays that saves numerous working steps during installation. First, the box is placed on the floor to mark the position of the waste fitting, then connected to the water supply and closed off with the cover that is included in the delivery. The impact and thermal insulation are then made, and the screed applied.
Once the screed is dry, the box can be cut to the required height and a pre-assembled sealing collar put in place – there is no need for a lining to adjust it to different levels. The sealing coating is then applied so the box is integrated in the compound seal in accordance with the standard. Now all that remains is to connect it to the bath or shower drain – and done.
Flexible and pre-assembled
The pre-assembled connection for the waste fitting is not fixed on Easy Connect but flexible, which means it can be extended to the desired length – not unlike the principle of a flexible, bendy straw. As the result, there is sufficient play to the top or side when connecting the waste fittings.
The BetteMinimum support, which greatly speeds up the installation of ultra-flat shower trays and shower areas on screed, is an excellent partner for the new installation box. Both components are pre-assembled as far as possible, perfectly matched to each other, and save many of the steps in the installation process.
The installation box Easy Connect complies with the current sealing standards to DIN 18534 and is tested to ETAG 022. The Kiwa-tested sealing components are included in the delivery and the parts pre-assembled at the works, which also greatly reduces the work on-site.
