16 OTL Square wet room floors, a mixture of stock and bespoke sizes, with the Large Circle Brushed Stainless Steel Square Grate. 1 roof terrace former with external tanking kit.

Radcliffes Lodge is a purpose designed boutique hostel built on a stunning waterfront estate in the heart of Amble, the perfect base for exploring the Northumberland Coast. The lodge consists of 48 beds in a mix of accommodation available for one or more nights stay. With a keen eye on design and quality, all rooms have en-suites, and there is a large communal area for dining and relaxing, with a full-length balcony overlooking Amble Marina and Warkworth Castle.

Searching online for a bespoke wet room floor solution, Tony Pull from Coble Developments Ltd discovered On The Level. Our flexibility to make wet room floors to suit the exact size and gully positions required for 3 of the 16 bathrooms on the development provided them with the perfect solution.

The OTL Square wet room floor system was chosen to provide a high quality, step free access to the shower, making the rooms suitable for all. Being hard wearing and easy to clean were also important considerations when choosing wet room showers for the en-suites.

We were also delighted to adapt our product once again and assist with providing a terrace floor. Taking the principle of an internal wet room and placing it in an external environment by introducing gradients into the terrace surface, keeping water under control and forcing the water to the outlet. The terrace was to be covered with a metal grating, however our innovative Exterior Tanking kit was used to ensure the terrace remains watertight, and water only escapes via the outlet.

We worked in line with Coble Developments building schedule, by dispatching the order in 2 parts, ensuring our products arrived just as they were required.

We have used competitor products in the past, however they have not been able to offer the same level of customisation as On The Level. I really like the construction of the OTL trays, i.e. the ply wood as opposed to the usual closed cell material used by most others, and the design of the waste. Communication from the team has been excellent, they really listened to what we needed, and provided a great quality product to fit our high-end hostel.
