PVC PANEL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can PVC Panels be fixed directly on top of old ceramic tiles?
If the existing tiles are securely fixed you can use a panel adhesive to stick the panels directly to the tiles. You should ensure that the additional thickness of the panelling over the tiles does not foul and taps, shower controls or doors.
Is PVC Panelling suitable for use in a shower?
Absolutely. Our Shower Panel range is made for this purpose, but you can also you use our standard bathroom panels.
Can PVC Panels be used to cover a ceiling?
Yes, the panels work equally well on walls or ceilings, check out our purpose made Ceiling Panel range.
Is it cheaper than using traditional tiles?
Whilst the price of ceramic tiles varies hugely depending upon size, style and finish, the preparation and installation times are much greater, generally leading to higher installation costs. The installation of PVC Panel is much simpler so you should be able to achieve significant savings in this area - and a reasonably adept DIYer could fit the panels themselves, so you may be able to completely eliminate fixing costs.
Will it help reduce condensation?
As PVC panels are warm, condensation won't form on them. However this does not mean that condensation will not form at all, and all bathrooms and kitchens should still be fitted with extractor fans to comply with the relevant building regulations.
I am installing a new bathroom – when should I fit the panelling?
The panelling should ideally be fitted after the bath or shower has been securely fixed in place, following the steps laid out in our fixing instructions. The washbasin and WC should be fitted after the panelling has been installed.
Can PVC panels be installed in other rooms as well?
Yes. Our panelling is suitable for use in a variety of other environments such as kitchens, bedrooms, utility rooms, in shops or offices. If you are using these products in a kitchen, you should not use the panels in any area where the temperature may exceed 50 degrees C (i.e.. beside an oven or hob).
