Their growth in popularity is in large part down to shower panels being the easy solution. The no maintenance wall covering that won’t degrade over time. A shower panel will look as good as the day it was installed for years to come.
PVC cladding has many benefits and one of the unsung benefits is the ability to add panels to an uneven wall to create a perfectly flat, consistent surface.
We compare the traditional and modern methods and explain the advantages of using PVC Wall Panels...
Traditionally a ceiling has always been plaster and white paint, there was a period where Artex was very much the trend. Painting the ceiling relies on a flat ceiling and that will require a skim coat of plaster which in turn requires a plasterer.
There is another way that will look as good as the day it was installed for years to come...
All our panels are delivered by experienced panel delivery agents. We do not use couriers for one simple reason – too many damages!
There are a number of online suppliers for PVC Wall Panels and Shower Panels who will offer free and fast delivery, the only problem with this is when they rely on the courier network. Your order arrives quickly but with a high probability of damaged panels. This is even more problematic if you have a fitter booked or you have arranged time off to fit the panels yourself.
Our experience is hard won, and therefore we only deliver using our trusted partners. Our delivery agents know how to handle and carry panels, so they arrive in perfect condition. No delays to your next bathroom.
If you are looking at an online supplier for PVC Wall Panels or Shower Panels we would recommend checking how they deliver before you order. If they use a courier it might be an idea to order a few weeks in advance to give yourself time in case you need to arrange a return.
Why do you only deliver in Scotland and the North of England?
We deliver to the areas our delivery agent network covers which now covers central Scotland and the North of England. We will be looking to add additional areas, but we are passionate about delivering the right way, so we make sure that any delivery matches our expectations and more importantly, your expectations. We will update this blog when we add additional areas.
When planning your bathroom panel installation you will come across multiple references to PVC or Aluminium Trims. A question we often field is are they necessary? They are not in the strictest sense but they do make a big difference to the level of finish with your panels.
A trim for every occasion
Each trim serves a specific purpose, you have dedicated trims for the ceiling, to end a panel, to wrap an external corner etc. Many add aesthetic appeal and generally make a big difference to the finished job. An important point is professional bathroom fitters will always use trims. They are used extensively to cover a cut panel or to protect a corner or to close the gap between wall panel and ceiling panel.
The one trim we always recommend – The Internal Corner.
Why do we always recommend the internal corner? The trim is the perfect way to connect two panels in an internal corner but they play an important role in addition to aesthetic appeal – waterproofing. With an internal corner in a shower or above a bath, an internal corner will be fitted first and the panels are fitted in each slot with silicone sealant. It is this silicone sealant and the surface area that is covered that makes the trim so effective at creating a waterproof joint.
If you are going to buy one trim, make sure it’s the internal corner and we just happen to have an extensive range in both PVC and Aluminium – view Trim Collections.
There is an easier option. Our Kitchen Splashbacks are easy to fit but more importantly they are easy to cut. If you look at the options available online you will note that many are pre-cut to the dimensions you provide, what happens if you get the measurements wrong?
Our Splashbacks come in 3000mm x 600mm and can be cut to match your space. Cut-outs for sockets? No problem, use either a multi-tool or jigsaw.
