Over Bath Shower

If you are looking to use your bath for showering then the walls will need to covered in a suitable waterproof material. For many the first thing they think of is tiles but there are downsides in using these as can be seen in the following photo.

The main concern is the grout. Bathroom tiles frequently get wet and the grout used to fill the gaps between the tiles can retain moisture enabling mould to grow. Many customers are opting for our waterproof panelling as an alternative to tiles for this application as they use no grout in their installation and there is therefore nowhere to harbour moisture - no moisture equelas no mould.

The following image shows the same bathroom after the tiles have been replaced with our Bali Grey cladding:

The result is a bright, light, attractive surface that requires no maintenance and will look good for years to come after the installation.

Showerwall Panels

We have just added the Showerwall range of laminated panels to our inventory.

These panels can be used in all but the largest shower cubicles to cover the wall without any joins. They are constructed from an MDF core with a decorative laminate face and come in a range of attractive finishes. There is also a range of trims available for finishing off the edges and corners as well as adhesives and silicone to get the job done.
