When joining these panels together, Hydrolock provides an almost seamless wall surface. With Hydrolock, there are no obvious panel mid-joints to draw the eye. Instead, you have a fabulous uninterrupted and completely waterproof stretch of the most impressive wall surface.
What’s more, with such an amazing range of colours, textures and designs, all with the Hydrolock tongue and groove system, you can give your imagination free rein to design a truly unique bathroom space – be that the ambience of the luxury spa by convincingly replicating the look and feel of massive slabs of stone, wood or marble.

How do you install tongue and groove wall panelling?

Multipanel Hydrolock tongue and groove waterproof wall panels are super-easy to install and can be fitted directly on top of existing tiles, stud walls, wood or even concrete and are ready for use in just 24 hours. Furthermore, if your walls are less than straight, you can still benefit from a perfectly flush finish as panels will tolerate a bow of up to 6mm.
Hydrolock panels come with a tongued edge and a grooved edge. Simply fit the grooved edge first and angle in the tongued edge of the adjoining panel, then push until panels click into place for a discreet watertight joint.

Eco friendly bathroom walls

Multipanel waterproof tongue and groove panels are an eco-friendly choice for redecorating your bathroom, wet room or shower room. 

And, although panels come with a 30-year guarantee, it’s nice to know that they are also 100% recyclable.

Tongue and groove bathroom flooring

Click vinyl flooring, also from Multipanel, offers the authentic look of tile, stone and wood. Here too, the tongue and groove concept has been efficiently applied to ensure a snug watertight fit.
Click vinyl flooring is available in either tile or plank format, both of which are suitable for fitting on top of underfloor heating. Interlocking installation is easy. No glue or underlay required. Simply click the planks or tiles into place: job done!

Like the Multipanel wall panels, there is a wide range of styles to choose from. Sicilia, for instance, will help you create a spacious elegant look, while one of the timber effect vinyl planks, such as Classic Oak or American Walnut work well for achieving a more traditional style.

Multipanel click flooring is warmer underfoot than traditional floor coverings and its slip resistance makes it a much more practical solution.

Designed to withstand the toughest use, waterproof Click flooring features a commercial grade 0.5mm wear layer and is coated with ceramic beads for a slip-resistant durable finish for long-lasting good looks.
