On special request there is a brief explanation for the attachment of the basin on the wall.
Unfortunately I can not show a lot of photos, because at the time was not yet in sight, that I end up here with you.
Because the commercially available base units usually do not match the rest of home furnishings, usually are very expensive and also often are visually not really a hit, I had to think about something else. Because the technique should disappear in the basement anyway, I needed not necessarily a cabinet. With brick substructures I did not want to start. The entire apartment is newly remodeled, because I wanted to never again tear new holes. In addition, the often looks quite bulky.
Somewhere I had ever seen a hanging aquarium and was immediately struck hard. If the part so floats in space makes it an incredibly delicate impression. One does not feel the pool would occupy half the space. Thus, it was clear that part comes at your wall.
The strength of the wall is not a problem. There are both external walls made of solid bricks. The base should be as unobtrusive (thin) as possible. Any support from the middle of many well vorherein. The space under the basin should be completely free. If anything, consistently.
So I expect hard. The problem was to get to grips with not the strength but the stiffness (deflection). That's with thin straps of course not so simple.
The result was a structure made of rectangular steel sections with dimensions 60x40x8,5 mm. The front row with a length of 1600mm twice, just in the middle and all the corner. On the walls two continuous folded steel sheets with a thickness of 8 mm are dowelled with 6 heavy duty anchors, on which rest the carrier. The 6 dowels per side are something much, but as you sleep but much quieter. I had had so many holes provide a precaution, because you sometimes can take a fugue with such a wall. If you then have to drill through 8 mm sheet a new hole, one can quickly spoil the mood. The parts are not mutually screwed. It's all only. This clears all the weight of the pelvis. On the carrier then came a 22 mm screen printing plate. Which is largely waterproof and especially nice thin. This plate was the most expensive in the entire substructure. The total cost of the foundation amounted to € 57 exactly. But I have to say, the steel parts I got from an acquaintance for 10 € transport and catering costs get.
The construction went relatively quickly. Storage ponds and screen printing plate still came a safety pad. From Styrofoam I would advise in this case, since it can compensate for small occasional irregularities, but is seen on the surface rather inflexible. A possible deflection would be transmitted so directly on the bottom disc. Mosgummi, the wonderful balance.
The concerns about the sagging but were completely unfounded. After the initial charge has absolutely nothing flexed. The foam rubber has over the entire width of the same thickness.
I am sometimes crawled under the basin to make at least a couple of useful photos. The basic principle should be recognized.
