Vicenza - change of pack size

Vicenza  - our budget range of waterproof wall panels - has had a change of pack size.

Previously these were sold in packs of 5 but the new consignment has turned up from the manufacturer packs in the more usual 4's. This means a pack covers 1m wide whereas previously this would have been 1.25m and should prove a little more flexible when calculating how many panels you require for your room.

Bali Grey Panels Discontinued

Bali Grey panels have been discontinued by the manufacturer, Decos.

These panels were originally made as a special order for a large contract that was subsequently cancelled. The batch was sold off and proved to be very popular. The manufacturers ran another batch but have now decided not to run it again so no further stock will be available of this design.

This is a real shame as Bali Grey has been one of our customers' favourites since it was introduced. There is, however, a very similar alternative product in Spaceline Silver Grey.

We are hoping to add a new panel as an alternative to Bali Grey in the very near future - check back here for details or contact our sales office on 029 20560949

Replacing A Damaged Wall Panel

A customer recently asked us if it is possible to replace a damaged panel without having to remove all of the other panels on the wall. It is possible to replace a panel in-situ but it can be a bit fiddly. This solution only works for hollow section pvc cladding - it does not apply to rigid laminate panels.

Remove the old panel by cutting in into bits on the wall and removing it and any adhesive to leave a smooth surface. The replacement panel must then be cut down its length on the back to enable it to bend. The panel is then bent out into a curve and sprung into place.

If the tongue or groove snags on any hidden protrubences they will need to trimmed off or the obstructions removed (a small piece of panelling can be used to slot into the existing tongue and groove to highlight their position). Once you are confident that the new panel fits it can be stuck in place.

The biggest problem faced is trying to match the panel as there can be variations between batches which can be considerable if the panels have been in place for some time. If this proved too problematic the alternatives are to panel the whole wall with new panels or if the panels cannot be matched you can panel the whole wall with a contrast colour to make a feature wall.

New Bathroom Ceiling Panel

We have recently added a new panel to our range - Belmont Grey Ash:

This is a white woodgrain effect panel available in two lengths: 2.7m and 5m. Its lightweight construction, matt finish and availability in a choice of lengths make it ideal for use on a bathroom ceiling but could work equally well on bathroom walls or inside a shower cubicle as it is totally waterproof. The woodgrain effect is a printed finish so the panel is smooth and easy to wipe over. The above image shows Belmont White Ash used in conjunction with Decos Mosaic wall panels in Glacier Grey and Decos Coving Trim.

Using uPVC panels on a bathroom ceiling has many benefits over more traditional methods. Paint, plaster, texturing compounds or timber finishes are all susceptable to mould problems which can require extensive maintenance is not cured. Our ceiling cladding products are warm to the touch and waterproof so they do not allow mould to grow. Couple this to their good looks and easy to installation and you have the perfect solution to any problem bathroom ceiling.
