We mainly provide products to tradesmen who are working in commercial venues or more domestically in local homes. We supply a wide range of panels, in different colours, textures and sizes.
Our store is based in South Wales, close to Cardiff and Swansea via the A470 and A465 and our friendly staff will be on hand to help with any questions or guidance.
The main difference between shower and bathroom panels is the thickness and dimensions.
Shower panels tend to have a thickness of 10mm, and are 2400mm x 1000mm. Whereas bathroom cladding can come in 2 different sizes – 8mm thick, 2600mm x 400mm and 5mm thick, 2600mm x 250mm.
In regards to the fitting there is no difference in the method of fitting but it is recommended that you use a clear silicone based adhesive when installing shower panels. Whereas any silicone based adhesive can be used for bathroom panels.
We do not provide installation services but we are more than happy to help with any queries you may have.
Your panels will need to be cut to fit the dimensions of your wall/shower before installing. When cut, all you will need is some adhesive, trim and screws and your bathroom will start to take shape. Make sure to push the panel firmly against the wall once the adhesive has been applied to allow the panel to bond firmly with the wall.
One of the burning questions when it comes to wall boards for bathrooms is:
– What’s better tiles or panels?
Panels are a relatively modern concept, and more people are discovering their benefits everyday. Compared to tiles they are cheaper (per meter squared), quicker to install and there’s no need to grout! Making them hygienic and durable. Traditional tiles may last longer than boards, as materials such as stone are typically more resilient than uPVC, but panels are commonly cheaper and quicker to replace than tiles.
We stand by our products (and use them ourselves).
Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is a very resistant form of plastic that doesn’t rot even when exposed to chemicals or bad weather. Often used for pipes and windows.
Despite the very smooth surface they do stick very well to walls, however we don’t recommend using any type of glue. We only recommend using silicone adhesive as it is flexible and moisture resistant.
You can! In fact you can put them straight onto almost any surface. However a lot of fitters prefer to use cladding strips on the tile or other surface first. As this makes sure they have a more uniform structure to work with.
Simplified: 1. Cut the boards to size. 2 Cover the back of a panel in adhesive and stick to the wall. 3. Secure with screws or staples. 4. Cover the back of the next panel and slot into the tongue and groove. 5 Repeat until covered.
Umm…yes. It’s not for the faint hearted though and we wouldn’t recommend doing it for a whole wall as the primer and paints dry quickly and often finishes are a little uneven. However if you have a section that needs to be covered over…it’s possible.
Our wall panels make sense in wet rooms due to being 100% waterproof but due to the improved designs, the low costs and the simple fitting they are now used everywhere. From living rooms to offices to salons.
