Outasight Delivery

Outasights are now being despatched directly from the carriers warehouse which means next working day delivery if you order before 12.00pm*

Any orders placed between 12.00pm and 3.00pm will also usually arrive next day but this subject to confirmation by the warehouse.

* some areas of the UK are excluded from next day service (Scottish Highlands for example)

Postal Strike

The majority of our products are sent around the country via carriers so most deliveries have been un-affected by the postal strike. We do however send some items by Royal Mail:

  • Outasight spares
  • UPVC Panel Sample Packs
  • Spabord Samples
  • Invoices & Receipts

Please let us know if you feel that any of the above items are overdue and we will check to ensure they were despatched correctly.

Hopefully everything will be back to normal once the backlog has been processed at the Royal Mail.

Spaceline 333 Panels

The Spaceline 333 wall panels that were being sold off as they have been discontinued are now sold out. This was a v-grooved version of our standard Spaceline Range (which are a flush-fit). If you require V-groove marble effect cladding we have 4 colours available in the Evol 3000 range:

Evol 3000 Grey Marble
Evol 3000 Beige Marble
Evol 3000 Peach Marble

The standard Spaceline range of waterproof wall panels is still available and is as popular as ever.

Wet Room Floor

We are asked quite often about the best way to install our waterproof wall panels in conjunction with a wet room floor.

Fitting the panels to the wall is no problem - our wall cladding is ideal for use in these enviroments - but the question that always gets asked is "Which trim do we use at the bottom of the panels?"

At present the two manufacturers that we deal with (Decos and Grosfillex) have no trim specifically designed for use in these situations but having spoken to the importers we have come up with what, we think, is the best way to deal with situation.

The answer depends on the type of flooring that is being installed. If ceramic floor tiles are being used there are 2 options:
  1. if the tiles are to be run on the floor only - seal the tiles to the existing wall using silicone, run the panels down on top of the tiles and seal again
  2. if the tiles are to return up the wall to form a skirting - ensure the adhesive bed gives an overall depth of 10mm for the skirting, apply a bed of silicone on top of the skirting and run the panels down in the silicone
If you are using a cove-formed vinyl flooring in your wet room then we would recommend the following method:

  • fit the wet room flooring first and return up the wall
  • run the panels down over the flooring
  • finish the edge of the panel with a tile edge trim stuck into place using silicone sealant
  • use an 10mm trim for decos panels and 8mm for most of the Grosfillex range*
