The underside of the ceiling is filled and painted in white, NCS SO-500N.



Use an approved wet room membrane sealing system.

The wet room membrane is made according to. SBI guideline 252



Empty pipes and electrical boxes are built into walls

Make LK is used. There is a choice between the manufacturer’s different models, e.g. Fuga, Opus, etc.

As a minimum, equipotential bonding is carried out from the main armouring of the pod to the pod’s electrical installation as well as ventilation spouts, metal floor drains and sprinkler pipes, if included.


Basic connectivity options


Connected via coiled 3 x 1.5 mm² cable with length reaching the control panel

Connected to the exterior switch box for light to the bathroom pod through 2 empty pipes routed to the floor



The two phases are connected in a junction box in the service shaft

Connected via coiled 5 x 2.5 m² or 5×1.5m2 mm cable with length reaching to the switchboard


Potential equalisation:

Potential equalisation of the main reinforcement in the bathroom floor and ventilation duct via a socket in the bathroom


The electrical installation is carried out in accordance with DS/HD60364 and BEK1082.

Electrical installations are tested according to. KS-manual Appendix D



Domestic water installations are made of 16 mm pex pipes, routed in a pipe-in-pipe system.

Junction boxes are moulded into the wall elements for the tap points

The system is VA approved

The water installations are routed vertically up the walls of the bathroom pod above the pod ceiling to the service shaft

The water installation is terminated either with 2 distribution pipes with ¾” union in the service shaft or with a rolled-up excess length of pex pipe

Water installation is leak tested according to KS-manual appendix E1. KS-manual appendix E1



Internal drainage installations are routed in welded PEH pipes, brand Geberit

Standard floor drain is ABS floor drain with stainless steel grate, make Jafo

Alternatively, a corner drain made by Unidrain or Blücher

If possible, the drain installation should be terminated in a service shaft. Drain installations from floor drains, washbasin and washing machine should be combined as far as possible into one pipe with a 50/75 mm PEH drainpipe. Drains from the toilet are dimension 110 mm PEH.

Drain lines internal to the bathroom floor are laid with a 20 per mille fall in accordance with the DIF standard for drain installations. DIF standard for drain installations, drain installations in prefabricated elements

All materials are CE type-approved

Drain installation is leak tested according to KS-manual. KS manual



Water-based underfloor heating is the normal standard solution, realised in 15 mm pex pipes

The underfloor heating is regulated with a return valve controlled by a thermostatic element. The underfloor heating is terminated in the service shaft, with the necessary excess pipe length so that the pipes can reach the apartment’s heat distribution pipe without joints

The underfloor heating installation can alternatively be supplied as a pipe system with room thermostat control

The Pex underfloor heating pipes are fixed to the top reinforcement mesh on the underside of the reinforcement mesh with a covering concrete layer of approx. 50 mm and with a distance of 200 mm between the heating loops

Electric underfloor heating can be provided if desired

The heating installation is leak tested according to the KS-manual. KS manual



Bathrooms are normally supplied with an extraction valve for central extraction. This is terminated with a Ø 100 mm spigot in the service shaft.

The valve is placed in the ceiling and routed to the shaft via an attached ventilation pipe. A silencer can be fitted if required and there is sufficient space above the bathroom ceiling.

An electric fan can be supplied if required.



The bathroom pod is not supplied with door leaf and frame fitted.

Plastic screw blocks are moulded into the door hole for installation of the door frame on site. Please refer to the installation instructions for bathroom pods for this installation.



The bathroom pod is delivered with a plywood plate in front of the door hole. The door plate is hinged and serves as a temporary door. The door plate is closed with a padlock. The door panel is split in two so that a lower part of approx. 200 mm in height and the full width of the panel can be removed without removing the rest of the door panel. The purpose of this is so that the carcass installer can check the drop in the bathroom door opening after installation and so that the carpenter can check the floor height of the bathroom and coordinate this with his floor heights when laying wooden floors outside the bathroom.

If a door is supplied, it is equipped with a padlock system that prevents access to the bathroom during the construction period.

Bathroom pods are supplied with 4 wooden blocks 150 x 150 x 150 mm attached to the underside of the pod base. These are removed immediately before installation.



The bathroom pod is equipped with 4 lifting points. These consist of 4 ø 16 mm eye nuts that can either remain on the pod or be removed. They do not need to be returned.

For more information, please refer to Badelements detailed installation instructions.



Depending on the floor height of the building, it may be necessary to make recesses for parts of the drain installation in the upper side of the concrete deck under the bathroom pod. In each individual case, the height of the concrete deck at the location of the bathroom pod must be assessed to determine whether a recess is necessary.

As a general rule, when using our standard floor drains from Jafo, a recess is not necessary if the floor construction is 180 mm and for drain channels from Unidrain or Blücher 210 mm. Unidrain or Blücher 210 mm. However, always contact us to determine the size of the recesses.
Factors such as the length of the connecting drain pipes can also have a significant influence. It is recommended to contact us on a case-by-case basis.



  • Assembly of the bathroom pod including crane
  • Cladding the outside of the pod’s visible walls with 1 x 12.5 mm plasterboard
