Just a stone’s throw from Mozart’s hometown of Salzburg is the idyllic hamlet of Bergheim and its four-star Gmachl hotel. The spacious grounds provide all the amenities necessary for a perfect holiday. So it comes as no surprise that the name “Gmachl” has stood for top quality in this region for many decades. And that’s why top-quality materials were specified for the extensive new buildings and extensions.

In the wellness zone area, the contractor relied on the hardwearing ARDEX WA epoxy adhesive/grout from the very start because this is not only the ideal product for wet areas, but is also extremely resistant to chemicals. And at the same time, the magnificent natural stone finishes in the hotel were perfected using the flexible ARDEX X 32 adhesive.

On the balconies, reliance was placed on the GUTJAHR Watec 4E drainage system, including drain grates, plus flexible ARDEX FB 9 L pourable thin set mortar for bedding the tiles and ARDEX FL rapid-setting flexible tile grout. The tiles in the bathrooms to the suites were laid in that “formula for success” ARDEX X 7 G adhesive and grouted with the water-repellent and dirt-resistant fine tile grout ARDEX FS-DD. And reliable waterproofing in the form of ARDEX 8+9 ensures that everything below wet areas remains dry.

So the “Gmachl” provides further proof that, whether in bathrooms, on balconies or anywhere in the wellness zone, system products from ARDEX guarantee the best connections every time.
