The joint detail between a shower tray or bath and adjacent wall can differ from site to site depending on the receptor type (upstand/no upstand) and wall surround. Another influencing factor in joint seal design is the joint sealing material’s integration and compatibility with liquid and sheet applied shower wall waterproofing membranes.

HydroHalt TileBud presents the Sealux strip and foam backer rod as separate components enabling TileBud to accommodate all joint detail types, as the instruction sheets, installation images and videos below highlight.
