Of course! It is just as clear and obvious to the majority of people when they hear about the idea behind unidrain®. And it was just as natural for the people behind unidrain®'s problem-free drain - when they had the bearing idea:
A floor drain that is placed close to the wall. Flanges that go up along the walls. And gone are the problems with sloping, which almost always slopes the wrong way and leakages which through the years spoil the construction.
A period of time passed from idea to sustainable and recognised technical solution. Serious product development takes time and unidrain®'s drain system is a patented solution, which is thoroughly tested and lives up to all the current requirements in the market.
The standard for floor drains in the future
The first drain from unidrain® came onto the market in 2003. Since then, unidrain® has paved the way for innovative approaches to floor drains.
unidrain®'s fundamental principle is, in all its simplicity, based on supplying the floor drain with one or more vertical flanges. The vertical flanges mean that the floor drain continues up the wall - in one unbroken piece. unidrain® thereby uses the same technology to achieve waterproofing as has always been used in the construction industry:
When two building components require a waterproof join, for example in the transition between roof and chimney, overlapping flashing is used to create a seal.
A similar principle is at work in the sealed joint between the drain unit and the vertical wall flanges: the vertical wall flanges, together with the lubrication membrane, form a perfect, wet-room secure overlap against one or more walls. At the same time, the wall flanges ensure precise fastening during the entire construction process.
The principle is simple and logical, but also unique: unidrain® was the first to use "flashing" techniques on walls in combination with floor drains. The system has been patented internationally.
