Tulppa wet room solutions
The innovative Tulppa range of products makes building and renovating wet rooms faster and easier than before.
Tulppa-compatible products are currently available from ARDEX, Casco and Sika. A table specifying the Tulppa-compatible products available from each manufacturer is included at the bottom of this page. Further information about individual products is available on the manufacturers' websites. Tulppa products available from Finnfoam Oy include the horizontal-installation, half-interfitted Tulppa wet room board, the Z and O mounting brackets designed specifically for attaching Tulppa boards and the Tulppa sealing tape for corners and wall-floor joints.
Studied and safe
All components of the Tulppa wet room system have been tested to the most stringent new European requirements (ETAG 022). Compatibility of all components has been tested and studied as part of a painstaking product development project. The Tulppa construction board can be used to implement structures with no risk of moisture problems. In exterior wall structures, the Finnfoam core functions as a waterproofing and thermal insulation layer as well as a vapour barrier. Thanks to its ability to withstand moisture and its high compression strength, Finnfoam is ideal core material for waterproofing boards. Moreover, Finnfoam is a waterproof, mould-proof material.
Cost efficient solutions
In a comparison of the total cost of traditional, brush-applied waterproofing compounds and materials versus the Tulppa solution, the latter clearly emerges as the more cost effective option. The cost efficiency of the Tulppa system is based on fast and uncomplicated installation, which reduces the time required for work and therefore reduces construction costs considerably.
