  • porous joints cause water damage
  • repairs are tedious and expensive

Tested waterproof

to DIN 18534.

Under DIN 18534, baths and shower trays must be sealed in a special way. Silicone is not enough. In addition to the use of conventional sealing tapes, the building regulation calls for the upstand as a standard solution. In order to check the seal on the BetteUpstand, it was subjected to endurance testing at Kiwa, the independent test institute. This test confirmed the seal of the BetteUpstand based on guideline ETAG 022.

for any room situation

1. Standard BetteUpstand

The BetteUpstand is a 35 mm high, enamelled upturn of the tray or bath edge, of which 12 mm is tiled over during installation.

2. Shortened upstand

The BetteUpstand can also be specifically adapted for corners and niches where the wall does not continue. We recommend setting the upstand back by 10 mm. The front can then be neatly tiled over and the clear joint line of the splashback is retained. The sides of the bath and shower tray on which BetteUpstand is to be shortened are determined by the individual installation situation. Bette will shorten the upstands for one or both sides, on request.

3. Upstand to measure

So the benefits of BetteUpstand can be enjoyed even in rooms with unusual dimensions, upstands can be individually adapted for baths, shower trays and shower areas in accordance with a customised drawing. Thanks to this flexibility, the BetteUpstand can be integrated into virtually any bathroom design.

Free choice

of wall covering

The BetteUpstand can be tiled in the classic manner or installed with seamless walls in glass or waterproof HPL composite panel.

Precisely planned,

perfectly installed.

1. Preparing the wall

The principle applies for solid and lightweight construction: the walls are plastered as usual or covered with 2 lightweight panels. As the bath or shower tray with BetteUpstand is inset in the wall, the unfinished wall must be filled or recessed by at least 11 mm (C).

2. Preparing the bath or shower

Apply the insulating tape to the back of the sealing fleece (premounted at the factory), then attach flush to the top from the back.

3. Fixing

Align the bath or shower tray and secure using the anchors (included). Then work the sealing fleece into the compound seal with waterproofing filler.

4. Tiling

Make sure that the tile ends flush against the perforation of the insulating tape. When you have finished tiling, you can detach the lower part of the insulating tape.
