Google AdvertisingShower Wall Panels are most often made from UPVC sheets, which are fixed to the walls of a bathroom or shower. Compared to normally used ceramic tiles, these are much easily installed. Tongue and groove system is applied for holding them together. The tongue of one panel fits in to the groove of the next panel. Continuing the same way, the whole wall is covered. The installation is quick and neat.
In case you have a high pressure shower installed already, it will be desirable to seal these wall panels by using a thin bead of a silicone sealant along and inside the joint.
You can have corner shower wall panels in a large range of designs with an equally large range of colors to include the following;
• Wood grain: Marble Effect: Mosaic Effect, or just plain colors.
Such wall panels are generally followed with the waterproofing of ceiling panels to get a complementary effect that adds to the aesthetics of the bathroom..
Having UPVC panels in a bathroom has some distinct advantages that are not found in the conventional ceramic tiles. Some of these are:
• They are installed conveniently in a shorter time.
• The surface just needs to be wiped off to look clean.
• UPVC panels are longer lasting and remain good for very many years.
• As there is no grout, they don’t get moldy.
UPVC shower panels come in many sizes. For paneled ceiling you get them in longer lengths.
Installation technique is very simple and convenient. Batons or stud work may be employed to prepare surface, but these can conveniently be fixed on to existing brickwork, blocks, and plaster and even over the existing tiles. Very often they are fixed to the wall straightaway by using a suitable commercially available adhesive. The advantage of doing so is that the thick adhesive may also be used for filing up of any uneven areas on the wall.
One of the quickest and easiest ways of fixing these panels is by stapling them on suitably prepared walls. It also facilitates their removal, if the need arises. The staples don’t get visible as each successive panel covers the preceding fixed panel
If the walls have not been finished properly or are uneven, batons should be fixed to the wall and then fix the shower panels to the batons. This is achieved by using an appropriate adhesive or a staple gun.
Gradually, the fixing of corner shower panels is getting a popular project for the DIY enthusiasts. Their useful features like hygiene, long life and the ease of fixing favor their installation to other materials.
