Tips and information relating to both Kaskade and NoMorePly wetrooms

If you need more help, complete the form below or call our technical helpline on 0800 0094 354&l

Can I use cement-based tile adhesive on the Kaskade tray?

Please only use MegaLastic tile adhesive, as a cement-based adhesive will not adhere to the tray properly.

What's the difference between Kaskade and NoMorePly wetrooms?

Kaskade trays are made from Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and can sit directly on wooden joists. They can be used with vinyl floor finishes.

NoMorePly wetrooms are made from a cement-coated foam-core board, and will require underboarding before installation.  They cannot be used with vinyl floor finishes.

Both Kaskade and NoMorePly wetroom trays can be finished with all types of tiles, both have the same 6mm rebated edge, both can be installed into either wooden or concrete subfloors.

The range of sizes is also the same in both ranges; if you require a larger or samller size, please call our helpline for advice: 0800 0094 354.

Do I need to waterproof the trays?

No, both NoMorePly and Kaskade wetroom trays are inherently waterproof so there is no need.  In particular, we recommend against the use of a tanking membrane over the top of the Kaskade wetroom trays.

However, you may need to tank the area around the trays depending on what product you have used on the rest of the floor.

How thick are the wetroom trays?

Both the Kaskade and NoMorePly wetroom trays are 28mm thick at the highest point.  They have a 6mm rebated edge to accommodate the 6mm NoMorePly boards, making the edge of the tray 22mm thick to match the thickness of regular floorboards.

In order to provide the falls required for efficient drainage, the trays are obviously thinner in the centre near the trap.

Can the wetroom trays be cut down?

Up to 150mm can be cut from each side of the tray. The cut edges will need sealing once trimmed.

What's the maximum weight a Kaskade tray can hold?

The Kaskade tray is very robust, and will easily hold up to 30st or 200Kg.

In fact, the weight limit would really be dependant on the strength of the subfloor so if you have a heavy-duty requirement we'd be glad to discuss your project on the helpline: 0800 0094 354.

Can I use cement adhesives on the NoMorePly wetroom trays?

Yes, we would recommend a single-part flexible cement-based tile adhesive to be used to fit the tiles onto the NoMorePly wetroom trays.

I need a tray that is larger than the sizes listed - what can I do?

The NoMorePly trays AND the Kaskade trays can be extended to suit your requirements using the NoMorePly.  This is most effective if your shower area has three sides or has a glazed screen to prevent water from making it's way into the rest of the room.

Simply install your chosen wetroom tray central to the shower area you are creating and build up around the sides with NoMorePly.  Put a slight fall on the outside edges of NoMorePly to ensure that any water that lands there will drain into the trap.

Tile over the full area as if it was all one piece, paying attention to the waterproofing as necessary.
