Wall & floor tiling students can now experience the latest innovations in wet room technology with two fully fitted installations showcasing waterproof systems for both wall and floors, a point drain, a linear drain and electric underfloor heating system.

Sales & Contracts Manager for Schlüter-Systems Thomas Etheridge said: "It's been fantastic to support Highbury College and provide their students with hands-on experience of Schlüter’s wetroom systems. Educating tilers and providing training on our products is an integral part of what we do so we are proud to help the next generation of tilers in their learning and practical experiences. We hope that this initiative helps students gain the confidence to install Schlüter products with ease, and we look forward to working with them throughout their tiling careers."

Schlüter-Systems is the leading provider of tile installation systems with more than 50 years’ experience in the tile and stone industry.

Program Leader and Tutor Stephen Jeffery said: " Schlüter-Systems are true innovators when it comes to product for this industry. Thomas came back to me about ideas he had about what he would like to do for our student experience. He believes the future of our students is to understand Schluter's products before using them. Thomas and his colleague Mark have given our students the best springboard in which to move safely and positively into working within the construction industry. We owe so much to Schlüter, Thomas and Mark for all their support and their very generous donation of product.”
