Wheelchair Accessible Disability Shower - West Vancouver

This disability shower was already after 3 months in use totally soaked up and smelled moldy. We had to replace the whole (now with mosaic tiled) area. The original tiles wasn't longer available therefore we came up with this idea.

Notice: The benches are two feet high. Higher as normal but the right hight for this handicapped person. We also lifted up the shower floor to make it wheelchair accessible if needed.

- The shower is complete Waterproofed with Wedi System.
- All corners are caulked with 100% silicone in grout color.
- Wheel chair accessible if needed.
- The mosaic tiles are the owners choice.


Someone was asking: - "?they caulked with 100% silicone in grout color-Is this a good option or benefit????

Here is the answer: - Every material has different characteristics. Some materials expand more and other expand less under the influence of heat, water etc.

To allow such expansions without any damage to the tile work, every joint in a corner or between two different materials has to be "free" from any rigid material like thinset or grout and has to be filled with a flexible/delectable material.

Very common is acrylic based caulk however this material is not very flexible and also water-soluble. Therefore we use 100% silicone. The benefit of silicone is : It is water resistant, high flexible and bonds very well. It is also available in many grout colors, so one applied you will not really notice that the joints are caulced.
