Unlike other TileWare products, the grab bars feature an anchoring plate that affixed to the wall studs.
The plate's Z-shape is designed to fit between two sections of wall board, with sealant between the plate and the board. This works very well with Wedi board, Schluter Kerdi board, HydroBlok's wallboard, or the SA Watertight boards.
You can also use a sealing membrane, such as Schluter's Kerdi Band, to cover and seal the wallboard-plate-wallboard sandwich.
Waterproofing a tub surround or shower is one of the most important aspects of a bathroom remodel. However, most storage or accessibility solutions for tubs and showers require poking holes through the waterproofing after tile is installed to anchor your shelf, bench, or grab bar to wall studs. Those screw holes create a direct passage for water to get into the wall cavity, causing issues such as mildew and rot.
TileWare grab bars are installed before the tile, and the wallboard can be sealed up around it. They are incredibly compatible with waterproof wall boards such as Wedi, Schluter Kerdi, HydroBlok, or the SA Watertight system. No leaks, no water damage!
