FAQs about Bathroom Wall Panels

Can I use wall panels for floors or ceilings?

It is not recommended to use our bathroom wall panels on the ceiling as they may be too heavy or on the floor as it is not slip resistant. Alternatively see our selection of vinyl bathroom flooring.

Can wall panels be applied directly to tiles?

Yes, provided they are sound, our bathroom wall panels are suitable for covering old bathroom tiles.

Can Multipanel wall panels be applied to plasterboard walls?

Yes, our bathroom panels can be applied directly or to timber sub-frames, using our wall panel adhesive

Can I use Multipanel wall panels above 2400mm high?

Yes, but you'll have to seal the top edge with the appropriate profile and sealant. Panels cannot be installed vertically, on top of each other.

Can I order Multipanel wall panels in larger sizes than 2400mm x 1200mm?

No, this is the maximum size of the raw materials, but by using a continuous ‘H’ joint profile or Hydrolock tongued and grooved edges you can join the bathroom panels.

Are your wall panels stain and mould resistant?

Our bathroom wall panel laminates conform to EN 438-3 and are guaranteed to achieve the stain resistance requirements of this international standard.

In addition, in-house testing has shown that Multipanel® bathroom panels will be unaffected by brief contact with most standard shower products, including coloured shampoos and detergents. 

Avoid contact with bleach, tanning agents, hair dyes and root restorers as these products could harm the laminate.  If one of these substances accidentally comes into contact with the panel, rinse immediately with plenty of warm water.

If substances are allowed to remain on the surface for a long period staining may occur, particularly on textured laminates.

Our shower wall panels have excellent mould and bacterial resistance.

How do I clean Multipanel?

We recommend cleaning our bathroom panels with a micro-fibre cloth, warm water and a non-abrasive mild detergent. Scouring powders or similar products should not be used.

Wiping after use should be sufficient to prevent staining in most cases.

Lime scale residues may be removed using a soft cloth and a 10% solution of citric or acetic acid, household white vinegar and / or lime juice. 

Commercial lime-scale removers are not recommended.

What is the weight of Multipanel?

2400mm x 1200mm x 11mm panels weight approximately 20-25kg. Browse our installation guides for weights specific to your type of wall panel.

How do I fit grab rails and shower seats?

It is recommended that you fix through the bathroom panels into the wall behind for a secure fixing, and seal around all apertures.
