Cladding for caravans, motorhomes & boats

We get asked quite frequently whether our bathroom cladding can be used in caravans, motorhomes or boats. In general there is no problem using our panels in these situations - you just have to be extra careful when it comes to ceiling the panels against a shower tray in case there is any movement. It is vital to use a high grade silicone sealnt in these situations - we recommend Dow Corning, which is usually available from plumbers or builders merchants. It is more expensive than most "DIY" silicones but is far superior: it can be easily applied, easily smoothed, adheres well and has excellent anti-mould properties.

We will shortly be adding sealing instructions to our installation pages and also hope to be able to add Dow Corning products to our online shop soon.
