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.
