It’s easy to see why waterproof wall panels are gaining ground on tiles as the decorative choice for bathrooms.
Like ceramic tiles, Multipanel wall panels offer impressive water resistance; they're 100% waterproof. However, unlike tiles, they don't require grout, so they are much easier to clean and maintain. And with no grout there is no risk of mould. Wall panels can be installed on a variety of surfaces – wood, concrete or even over existing tiles, and are easily cut to size to fit any bathroom perfectly.
The ease of fitting means that there is no requirement for specialist trades to complete your installation. This, combined with the lack of on-going maintenance issues, means that waterproof panelling can offer an all round much more convenient alternative to ceramic tiles.
A wide selection of colours and finishes is important of course, but critically you have to be sure of the integrity of the product you choose.
Firstly, your shower panels must be impervious to the effects of water and moisture.
PVC panels are at the cheapest end of the spectrum, and while these will, if correctly sealed, provide a barrier against water, they tend to come in a very limited range of colours and designs. Furthermore, because their construction doesn’t feature a solid core, they are often not nearly as durable – a few bumps and knocks will likely lead to a cracked surface and water ingress. Because PVC panels have no real core substance, they tend not to sit very happily on a bumpy or bevelled wall.
This lack of structural integrity also makes it far from ideal for use in tongue and groove applications.
Backed by over 135 years of manufacturing expertise, Multipanel is the UK brand leader in the design and manufacture of high-end waterproof panelling solutions.
