How it works
Laminated panels are the ideal alternative to tiles and the perfect choice for any shower or bathroom. Shower and wall panels will quickly and easily convert any bathroom into a simple yet modern space. Specifically designed for wet areas, these panels are completely waterproof. Unlike tiles, they do not require grouting and are incredibly low maintenance once installed. They can also be fitted over most existing surfaces, including tiles and will transform any bathroom or shower enclosure instantly.
Tongue & Groove - Inter-Lock Panels (Widths - 585mm, 885mm & 1185mm)
Straight Edge Panels (Widths - 900mm & 1200mm)
Height: 2420mm, Thickness: 11mm,
When cutting the panels to width and height with a handsaw, the decorative face should be upwards. When cutting with a jigsaw or circular saw, the decorative face should be downwards.
A clearance of 2-3mm should be left where pipes or fittings come through the panel even where collars are to be fitted. The clearance should then be filled with silicone sealant.
A 3-4mm gap should be left between the bottom of the panel and the shower tray or bath by using packers when fixing panels. The gaps should then be sealed using silicone sealant.
Silicone sealant should also be used in all the corner and capping profiles.
The panels can be fixed to most surfaces using adhesive providing they are sound and free from loose particles. The panels can also be fixed directly onto existing tiling providing it has been de-greased.
Fittings and shower attachments can be fixed directly to the panels using suitable fixings. Heavier items such as sanitary ware and accessible furniture will require the provision of additional support behind the panels.
Panels can be cleaned using normal soap, water and a soft cloth. Alternatively a non-scratch liquid cleaner can be used. Abrasive cleaners should NEVER be used. Do not let WC Cleaners or Bleach to come in contact with the panel surface as over time this may cause discoloration or damage to the panels.
