World renowned hotel gets the Schlüter-Systems treatment

One of London’s most exclusive and luxurious hotels has used Schlüter-Systems products as part of its grand refurbishment.

The Lanesborough Hotel, in Hyde Park Corner, is in the process of extensive renovations which are being carried out by the late world renowned interior designer Alberto Pinto.

The new designs will enhance all 93 guest bedrooms and bathrooms as well as all public areas and will honour the building’s architectural heritage as one of London’s most revered Regency landmarks.

Under flooring solutions expert Schlüter has played its part in the major refurb by providing a host of products to the project including unique tile substrate Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD.

The lightweight but extremely strong product offers the perfect solution for creating bonded waterproofing assemblies for tile coverings and can also be used as a structural panel. KERDI-BOARD is 100 per cent waterproof, cement free, lightweight and completely even and flat, making it the ideal substrate for tiling.

As well as being waterproof, temperature resistant and vapour retardant, the product is also thermally insulating, quick and easy to install and contains no cement or fibreglass making it eco-friendly, whilst its fleece webbing allows for easy anchoring in thin-bed mortar.

The new and improved Lanesborough guest rooms also boast a second-to-none under floor heating system, provided by Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E.

The stand-out product leaves other conventional systems out in the cold as the perfect all-in-one integrated solution for use under tiles and natural stone flooring and is unlike anything else available due to its loose heating cables which are fixed down to the uncoupling mat free of tape as a result of its unique studded design. Offering optimum freedom for creating concentrated heating zones, as well as providing uniform spacing without the need for measuring and marking, the new system promises to cut installation time by up to 70 per cent.

Carl Stokes, Head of Marketing at Schlüter-Systems Ltd, commented:

“We’re delighted that two of our most popular products have been used in the extensive refurbishment of such a prestigious hotel.”

“Making installation of under floor heating simpler and easier than ever before, Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E really does tick all the boxes whilst Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD makes it quick and easy to create the flattest and most even substrate to tile.”

With over 10,000 products in its range, Schlüter-Systems have an essential role to play in every professional tiling project.
