FlangeBand offers clear benefits over traditional butyl adhesive tile flange kits in terms of:

• Material Composition
• Installation Versatility
• Product Performance

FlangeBand is an advanced tile flange kit for shower bases and bathtubs that is innovative in design but traditional in its use of proven materials and best practice installation methods.

In the documents below we explain how to install the FlangeBand tile flange kit around shower bases and bathtubs with and without integral tile flanges attached.

Joint movement and joint sealing material deterioration are the two most frequent causes of leaks. The videos below detail how FlangeBand overcomes these challenges.


Technical features & benefits of the FlangeBand tile flange for shower bases & bathtubs

In the above animation, we explain the unique technical features and benefits of the FlangeBand tile flange sealing kit, after installation between a flange free shower base (or bathtub) and adjacent wall.


FlangeBand: Shower Base/Tile Flange Joint: Extreme Joint Expansion Test

Shower bases and bathtubs settle down under weight. The above joint expansion test shows how flexible FlangeBand is after installation between a flange free receptor and adjacent shower wall.


FlangeBand: Joint Expansion Creates Tension: Strip/Sealant Adhesion Test

Joint expansion between a shower base or bathtub and wall creates tension in the joint sealing material. The above adhesion test shows how tenaciously the FlangeBand strip adheres to silicone sealing material.

•Perfect with Waterproof Membranes

 

Installation Options

Install FlangeBand to waterproof joints around shower bases, shower pans and bathtubs with integral tiling flanges.

1. Install FlangeBand over a shower base or bathtub wherein the backer board is located above the tile flange.

2. Install FlangeBand over a shower base or bathtub wherein the backer board is located outside the tiling flange.

3. Install FlangeBand over a shower base, shower pan or bathtub with a sloping integral tiling flange.

Install FlangeBand to waterproof joints around multi-threshold shower bases, pans and bathtubs (without tiling flanges).

4. Install FlangeBand with a stick-on backer rod during installation of a flange free receptor or bath.

5. Install FlangeBand in combination with a fleeced waterproofing shower wall membrane.

6. Install FlangeBand in combination with an anti-fracture liquid waterproofing shower wall membrane.

7. Install FlangeBand without a backer rod during or after installation of a shower base or bathtub.

8. Install FlangeBand around low profile shower bases and pans as low a 1/4″ (6mm) high.

9. Install FlangeBand over a shower base or bathtub rim built into an adjacent shower wall.

Install FlangeBand to waterproof the joint between PVC shower wall panels and shower bases, pans and bathtubs.

10. Install FlangeBand to waterproof the joint between 6mm shower wall panels and shower bases/bathtubs.

11. Install FlangeBand to waterproof the joint between 10/12mm shower wall panels and shower bases/bathtubs.

Installing FlangeBand to waterproof joints around ‘tile over’ & ‘tile ready’ shower pans and shower bases.

Step a: Install the shower pan leaving a 3mm joint between the shower base and adjacent walls and floor. Fill the joint with flexible silicone.

Step b: Lay the FlangeBand strip over the joint in a bed of adhesive sealant ensuring the fleece free portion of the strip face engages the shower base.

Step c: Waterproof/Tank the shower walls with a liquid or fleece waterproofing membrane extending it down over the FlangeBand strip.
