AKW has launched Tuff Form8, a super-strong, innovatively designed, easy installation wet room former.
The company says the product combines the benefits of its existing Tuff Form former with a new octagonal fitting plate, allowing for up to 15 different waste positions and ensuring easy installation every time.
It is added to the Tuff Form range to offer specifiers and installers even greater installation flexibility and increased weight capacity.
With pre-formed fixing points and an innovative octagonal waste plate, the firm says that all obstructing joists can be quickly navigated, making installation trouble-free.
In addition, the product, which is made from high strength Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC), has a weight capacity of 381kg (60 stone), making it ideal for heavier wheelchair users and their carers.
It is available in nine sizes and can be tiled or covered with safety flooring, and used to create complete level access solutions on both timber and concrete floors.
Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW said: “The Tuff Form8 former is a great addition to our range, as it offers installers and specifiers even more choice.
“As well as being ideal for use where increased load is an issue, the former’s innovative octagonal fitting plate helps navigate those trickier installation challenges.
“With a lifetime guarantee, this former is ideal for installers and specifiers looking to create the perfect foundation for a modern wet room.”
