How it works
Laminated panels are the ideal alternative to tiles and the perfect choice for any shower or wet room. 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 585mm, 885mm or 1185mm widths
Straight Edge Panels - 900mm or 1200mm widths - These size panels are supplied within this corner kit.
There are 30 colours/finishes available in the range, see above for the full selection.
Hints and tips for successful fitting:
Always point the decorative face upwards when cutting the panels with a handsaw to size.
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 attached 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 discolouration or damage to the panels.
