Hi Marie, thanks for the question. You can fit our panels over existing tiles. We'd recommend you do this only where the entire wall area you're looking to cover is tiled. If the wall is only tiled partway then you'd want to remove the tiles first, or use ply or plaster to raise the lowered section and make the whole area plumb and flush. You may also want to sand the tiles down before cladding (especially if the tiles are particularly glossy) so as to help create a key for the adhesive.

Hello there Duncan, many thanks for your question. If the wall substrate in the changing rooms is flat, solid, and dry (or can be made to be this way) then I can think of no better product than our Proclad Premium Grade panels - they're extremely durable, fire rated, 100% waterproof, and very easy to clean and maintain. You would fix these directly onto the subwalls using our polyurethane adhesive. If you'd like, we can give you an exact quote based on the measurements of the area - just give us a call on 0114 279 9188 or send the dimensions through to info@ipsluk.co.uk .

Good Morning Lou The boards are very durable and are tested for their durability, unfortunately we cannot test against every chemical that can appear in hair dyes, some of the chemicals used can be very aggressive and stain a large number of surfaces including bathroom enamel. For your piece of mind I would suggest maybe using a sample as a test piece against the hair dye you would generally use to see if there is any adverse effect.

Hello Tony, many thanks for your question. It would be better to cut to the bath height and use the Cladseal trim, as this trim will guarantee you a 100% waterproof, flexible joint. The trim can only do this if installed underneath the panel – i.e. you would fit this trim first, around the edges of the bath, and then install the panel onto it – and it wouldn’t give the same guaranteed joint if fitted after the panels.

Both our Aquaclad panels and our Aquabord panels are 100% waterproof, and so you could use them in a shower area. However, the Aquaclad panels are lightweight, narrow tongue-and-groove panels that can be used on ceilings as well as walls. Because of their lightweight nature, they’re not as durable as our Aquabord or Proclad panels, so we would always recommend those for use in a shower area.

The two different kinds of Aquabord panel we do – PVC tongue-and-groove, and Laminate – are both strong, durable and completely waterproof. The Laminate panels are slightly more durable, but it’s a difference that would most likely be untested by regular shower wear-and-tear: if you were to notice the higher quality strength of the Laminate panels, you’d be at the point of intentional damage. From regular bathroom usage, you’d be extremely unlikely to damage either kind of Aquabord panel.

The patterns available in the two ranges are different; also, the Laminate panels are 1200mm wide whereas the PVC T&G Panels are 1000mm wide. So these are the differences that people consider when deciding which type they’d like to use.

If you require a larger panel, I’d recommend you use one of our Proclad panels. By using internal corner trims at the corner points where the panels meet the tiled walls, and Sealux base seal trim at the bottom of the panel, you’d achieve a 100% waterproof finish (click here to see the full set of trims).

1. All our panels are PVC of some kind – the ‘P’ in IPSL stands for plastic – but the Aquabord Laminate and Aquabord PVC T&G panels differ in construction. The Laminate panels are 10mm thick, 1200mm wide, with a solid core of PVC foam and a laminate front and back face, similar to “Formica”. The Aquabord PVC T&G panels are 10.5mm thick, 1000mm wide, with a corrugated inside – a vertically-running box section. These ones also have tongue-and-groove sections on the sides, so they can be joined into one another along one long wall without the need for joint trim. You can see a full guide to our different panel types on our website by clicking here.

2. Because your alcove has dimensions of 900mm x 1200mm, I’d recommend the Proclad panels or the Aquabord Laminate panels, because these will be wide enough to cover your largest wall with just one panel, meaning you won’t need any joint trims.

3. No, this shouldn't’t be a weak point, but we’d recommend you cap the edge off using a trim. If it’s the bottom of a panel (the part that would meet the shower tray) then it would run onto your base seal trim (either Cladseal, Panseal or Sealux, depending on the type of panel you use) anyway, and if it’s in the corner, then it would meet the corner trim. If this cut edge is at the top of the panel, or a side that doesn't’t go into a corner trim, then we’d recommend you use a capping edge trim, just to ensure that the edge remains secure and watertight.

4. Possibly – it would depend on the pipes but so long as you cut correctly then I don’t anticipate you would have a problem. Sadly we don’t have any trims for capping the edges of curved cuts or round holes, so you would need to use silicone – there are installation videos on our website to view here, and if you take a look at this video and skip forward to 3 minutes 10 seconds in, it will show the method for doing this.

5. If you’re cladding onto existing tiles, then the tiled surface needs to be entirely flat, solid, and dry, with no loose sections. If the tiles are very glossy, you may wish to sand them down first to help create a key for the adhesive. Make sure you use polyurethane adhesive as regular store-bought wall glue will not allow for the natural expansion and contraction of the plastic once it’s on the wall, and so over time it will begin to come away.

Hello Gordon, thanks for your question.

You’d need to clad our panels to a flat, solid, dry subwall surface on every occasion.

This can be a tiled wall - so long as the tiled surface you're looking to clad to is flat, tiled all the way up, and has no loose tiles. If the surface is only tiled part way up, then you'll have a 'lowered' section where there are no tiles. This wouldn't work – you'd either have to remove the tiles, or 'fill in' the lowered section so it was level with the tiled section.

If you’re fitting both wall and ceiling panels then technically you can do this in either order, but I would recommend you fit the wall panels first, and then the ceiling panels with the ceiling coving afterward.

If there’s anything else that I might be able to do for you, please feel free to get in touch.

Yes, our Aquaclad narrow tongue-and-groove panels could be fixed to rafters to create a ceiling. These are long, narrow, tongue-and-groove (T&G) PVC ceiling panels.

You would run these in the direction opposed to the direction the rafters run in i.e. if your rafters run top to bottom, the panels would run left to right. Then you would screw the panels to the rafters at the point where they overlap.

We recommend that the panels are screwed into the rafters every 30 to 50cm. If your rafters are too far apart for this, you would be best fitting battens and then screwing our panels to these.

Because these panels are T&G, the best way to fix these is to use flat head screws. When you fit the first panel, screw it through the groove section. Then when you come to fit the tongue section of the next panel, it will slot in over the head of the screw and cover it over. You’d repeat this until your entire ceiling is done. Then the finished ceiling would look flush, flat, and no screw heads would be visible.

Hello Mike, many thanks for your question. Yes, we have several different options:

Our Aquaclad narrow tongue-and-groove panels come in a wide variety of lengths, most of which are greater than 2550mm, so you'd be able to fill the entire wall height with a single panel (although you will need several to cover the width of the wall, but these panels join flush at the tongue-and-groove). See our Aquaclad range.

Our Dumawall panels would also be a good fit for this solution, as you could join as many tiles together up the wall as needed to reach a particular height, while still getting a waterproof and durable easy-to-clean wall covering. See our Dumawall range.

Lastly, our Proclad panel range is generally available in 8' panels (2440mm) but we can also supply 10' panels (3050mm) on request - just give us a call on 0114 279 9188.

Hello Paul, many thanks for your question.

Yes, this is certainly possible, and yes, you would require some additional items beyond those provided in the shower wall kits. Our shower wall kits are designed to cater for a straightforward two- or three-wall shower where the walls are all less than a specific width (1000mm for the Aquaclad kits and Aquabord PVC T&G kits; 1200mm for the others). Because your project is a little less straightforward, you would be better suited getting a custom quote, which we'd be happy to provide you with - just send us an email or give our sales team a call on 0114 279 9188 and we'll be happy to help.

In terms of cladding the recess, this is certainly possible, but the difficulty may be in capping off the panels at the end where they 'point' towards the window - as you will not be able to get in behind them to fit a capping trim. Given that you are unlikely to incur water ingress here, it shouldn't usually be an issue, but every bathroom project is different so it would probably be worth discussing it further with us.

The trim you'd want to use to cover the point where the wall meets the recess would be an external corner trim, such as this one, in white (click here to view this trim on our website).

If you can let me know the exact dimensions of your bathroom and the areas you’d like to fit the wall cladding, I’d be happy to put together a custom quote for you.

Hello Ifraz, thanks for your query. Yes, you can clad directly onto existing tiles, provided that the entire surface you wish to cover is tiled - if you want to clad a full wall but only half of the wall is tiled, you'd need to remove the tiles first as otherwise you wouldn't have a completely plumb surface for the adhesive to key to. You also may want to consider sanding down the tiles first if they are particularly glossy, so as to allow the adhesive to key more easily.

As for whether we can fit the panels as well as supply them, generally we only offer supply-and-fit for large-scale commercial jobs, as it doesn't work out as economical for either IPSL or the customer for us to offer fitting on small projects. However, any good fitter, joiner, plumber, decorator etc. should have no problems with installing our panels - they're very straightforward to use.

Hello Scott,

Many thanks for your questions. I’ll try and answer them in turn as best I can:

1: I’m sorry but I’m not in a position to advise you with regards to plasterboard types. What I do know is that you want both the plasterboard and the timber battens to be completely dry, but it sounds like you’re letting everything dry out, so you have that covered. So long as the subwall surface (in this case the plasterboard) is dry, flat, solid and has no loose sections, then you should have no problems cladding our panels to it.

2. The PVC Aquabord panels aren’t too different to the Laminate Aquabord in terms of application – they’re both very durable, but the PVC panels are 1000mm wide as opposed to 1220mm. The PVC Aquaclad panels are just as waterproof, but a little less durable than the two Aquabord types. You can see a guide to the differences between our full range of panels by clicking here.

3. I’m afraid we can’t cut any of the panels down to size at this end for you. All our products would be delivered in the size advertised.

4. There’s generally a two to four working day lead time on orders, depending on the product(s) you need to order, and where you need them sending to – highlands or islands deliveries might incur a longer lead time. We generally try and get deliveries on our own transport wherever possible, but if doing so would lead to an unreasonable wait then we’d put your order out for delivery with a parcel carrier.

The regular polyurethane adhesive will do the job for most of our panels. For our Aquabord panels, we'd recommend you use the high-grab version.

So for example, if you're cladding to existing tiles, then that should be fine so long as the tiles are still held firmly in place. You might want to sand them down if they're quite glossy, just to help to create a key for the adhesive, but otherwise the panels can go straight on.

Hello Joanne, thanks for your question. We would generally recommend that you place a stainless steel panel where the panels face a hob or cooker, but with an electric cooker it would depend on the temperature levels that are reached behind the cooker. The heat itself shouldn't be a problem unless we are talking extremely high temperatures for prolonged periods of time, so domestic cooking is unlikely to warp the panels - however, potential splashback from hot oils and cooking fats will certainly do so, so if your electric cooker also has an electric hob on which you may be boiling or frying, then stainless steel will prevent any potential panel damage from taking place. If you don't anticipate that the heat behind the cooker will be too great then you should be OK - however I'd be wary as I'm assuming the cooker will be pushed back to the wall so the heat will be 'trapped' as it were. You might be best using our cladding all around the kitchen wall but leaving the part immediately behind the cooker un-clad.

You don't need to tank the plasterboard before you clad our panels to them, but if you do tank the plasterboard, then so long as you use our polyurethane adhesive, they will still stick without any issues.

The other panel you refer to would be the one you fit first. Fit the first panel, then the second panel would be the one you slot into the space on the trim. You can either fit the corner trim first, with the flat side (i.e. the non-slot side) attached to the already-fixed panel using silicone, and then slot the next panel into the trim slot when you come to fix that panel with adhesive.

If you're using our Aquaclad wall panels or any panels from our ceiling panel collection, these aren't solid all the way through, but a fluted box section.

Hello Alistair, thanks for your query. The best way to fix these panels would be to screw them into the ceiling. All our ceiling panels are tongue-and-groove, so they're ideal for fixing like this. If you screw into the groove section of the panel, when when you come to slot the tongue of the next panel into place, it will hide the head of the screw and give you a completely white finish.

Hello Darren, many thanks for your query.

With regards to the wall cladding, we'd recommend that you fit after you've installed your bathroom furniture, for the simple reason that you'd then be able to cut the panels specifically to size that they clad round the furniture. You want to avoid fastening any items of furniture to the panels themselves, as they're not meant to be wall-forming and thus not suitable for load-bearing - so the shower unit, any handrails etc. should be attached to the subwall and go through the panels, not onto them.

In terms of the flooring, a similar principle applies - we'd recommend that you install the furniture first and then fit the flooring cutting it to size around the items, although the other way around is possible (click here for more information).

Hi Peter, thanks for your query. The cladding would be attached using screws. Because all our ceiling panels are tongue-and-groove panels, you can fix the screws through the groove sections. Then, when you slot the next panel into place, the tongue of this panel will cover over the head of the screw, so it won't be visible, leaving you with a completely flush ceiling with no fixing visible. You can use either an edge trim or ceiling coving to finish the edges.

In terms of covering those tiles, they're ideal for that too. If you click here you'll see a full guide to fixing panels over existing tiles. Again, once fitted, you'd be looking at a completely waterproof bathroom solution.

Hello Tim, many thanks for your query.

We do have several different panel types to choose from, all of which are 100% waterproof, it will come down to your preference and budget as to which kind of panel you'd want to go for.

So let me help you out and I'll run through the differences between our panel types.

Firstly, we have our Aquabord Laminate range, this is our highest-quality wall cladding, which is why it's a little more expensive. This range has it's own decorative designs and are extremely durable and hard-wearing. These panels are different to other laminate boards on the market as we use a compressed foam in the centre rather than wood, it makes the panel lighter and easier to work with and also this way we know it is 100% waterproof. The panel measures 1.2m (4ft) wide, 2.44m (8ft) high and 10mm thick, the panel is square edged and would require a joining trim if you wish to extend further than the 1.2m width.

Secondly, we have our Aquabord PVC T&G range, this again is another high quality wall cladding with it's own set of decorative designs. Made of PVC this board has a hollow honeycomb structured centre and again is 100% waterproof. The panel measures 1m (3ft 3") wide, 2.44m (8ft) high and 10.5mm thick, the panel has tongue an groove sides which allows further panels to be slotted together for a seamless finish and without the need for a joint trim.

Next up is our Proclad Solid Colour Cladding range, these panels are a 2.5mm thick, solid piece of PVC plastic, measuring 1.2m (4ft) wide and 2.44m (8ft) high. These are our most hard wearing panels, in fact we use this range in a lot of commercial environments such as wash rooms and working kitchens. The panels are in plain solid colours and with such a wide range of colours to choose from, they are perfect to be used around the home. Again just like the laminate panels, these Proclad panels have square edges and need to use a joining trim to extend past the board width of 1.2m (4ft). The trims for these panels however are colour matched to the panel.

Aquawall is a large plastic wall tile made of a tough plastic, making them 100% waterproof, and with micro joint sides, which gives the impression of a grout line, they are ideal for all areas of the home. The tile measures 650mm x 375mm, are 5mm thick and come in a pack of 8 tiles. You can use the Aquawall horizontally or vertically and you can also mix them with other Aquawall designs.

Finally, our Aquaclad panel range. These are a narrow tongue-and-groove panel in our budget range. These generally come as packs of multiple panels with a 250mm width, this range has the most variations with product dimension, so please check the individual panel product page for specific details. Best for low impact walls for wall cladding, panels within this range are also used for ceilings and to create a feature wall in your home.

Hi Helen, great question. Our ceiling panels are flexible along their length to a degree but if the radius of your curved ceiling is 6" then the panels won't bend that much. The solution to this depends on how you are running the panels; if you would like to run the panel ends into the bend then you can use a jointing strip where the curve begins and run panels (cut to length) at an angle from the joint to the wall end (you may need to cut some material from the back of the joint strip to allow the panels to follow the required angle). The other solution works if panels are running along the curve; in this case the back of the panels can be cut along several of the veins so allowing the panels to bend to the curve.Hope this helps - please call us if you need further clarification!

It is perfectly OK to fit over tiles but there are some things to take care with. Firstly be aware of the additional thickness that the panels will add onto the wall and make sure that this does not cause any interference problems with doors etc. Also you should only fit onto tiles that are relatively well fixed onto the substrate, and ideally slightly roughen the surface with sandpaper.

Hi there, yes we do have several product ranges with their own dimensions.

Firstly, we have our Aquabord Laminate range, the panel measures 1.2m (4ft) wide, 2.44m (8ft) high and 10mm thick, the panel is square edged and would require a joining trim if you wish to extend further than the 1.2m width.

Secondly, we have our Aquabord PVC T&G range, the panel measures 1m (3ft 3") wide, 2.44m (8ft) high and 10.5mm thick, the panel has tongue an groove sides which allows further panels to be slotted together for a seamless finish and without the need for a joint trim.

Next up is our Proclad Solid Colour Cladding range, these panels are a 2.5mm thick, solid piece of PVC plastic, measuring 1.2m (4ft) wide and 2.44m (8ft) high. Again just like the laminate panels, these Proclad panels have square edges and need to use a joining trim to extend past the board width of 1.2m (4ft). The trims for these panels however are colour matched to the panel.

Aquawall is a large plastic wall tile, the tile measures 650mm x 375mm, are 5mm thick and come in a pack of 8 tiles. You can use the Aquawall horizontally or vertically.

Finally, our Aquaclad panel range, these are a narrow width tongue-and-groove panel. This range has the most variations with product dimension, so please check the individual panel product page for specific details, they generally come as packs of multiple panels with a 250mm width and are usually 2.6m+ in length.

Hi Lesley, Please find answers below:(i) we do offer plant on external corners (19 x 19mm) for our Aquabord panels. Colours available at the moment are: white, black, silver, slate grey and coral.(ii) a two-part Aquabord edge trim would be suitable for this. The back section is fitted first, and the front section is only clipped in after the panels are in place.(iii) for the recessed window you could line the recess and install the panels right up to the window like you say, and then it could be finished off around the recess with the plant-on external angle in (i). A two-part internal angle could be used on the internal angles within the recess (or alternatively silicone these areas).(iv) we do not have any stockists in London, but we do deliver nationwide, and samples / brochures / installation guides can be posted out.

Thanks for contacting us Paul. We do not normally recommend that Aquabord panels be used on ceilings, simply because of their size. The panels are 1200x2400x10mm - in old money about 8ft by 4ft, this makes them very difficult to lift and hold in place while the adhesive sets - we do have adhesive that will do the job but the panels would need to be propped firmly to the ceiling for several hours. Instead I suggest that you consider our range of ceiling panels, these are narrower and lighter and have been designed so that they can be fixed with hidden screws.

Hi Stephen,1. It depends on which range you opt for - the Aquabord Laminate panels are 2400 x 1200mm, and the Aquabord PVC are 2400 x 1000mm. Both ranges are available in 2 or 3 wall kits.2. Yes - so long as the surface is smooth and does not have any loose areas it will attach to plaster wall without any problems. We recommend our Proclad adhesive for attaching the panels.3. The surfaces are extremely durable and very straightforward to clean.4. This would depend on the quantity of your order. The standard minimum charge is £25.5. We recommend using a fine tooth saw (hand or electric) making sure the panel is well supported. Low temperatures can make the panels more brittle, so allow time for the panels to acclimatise to your room's temperature.

Hi Jim - I would say that the majority of our customers fit some sort of light fitting though our panels. It makes no difference what voltage you choose, we only advise that you keep the hottest part of the fitting away from direct contact with the panels. uPVC has a softening temp of 60 degrees C but having sold thousands of these panels I can only recall one issue with fitting spots and we think it was a faulty light fitting (we replaced the panels anyway).

Hello there, we certainly can provide a kit for a shower of this kind, but you may prefer to purchase separate panels and trims for a more tailor-made project that may work out to be better value.In terms of shower kits, our Aquabord 3 wall kits are extremely high quality. However with the 1000mm wide panel kits (tongue and groove), you will have to cut some of the panels and purchase extra joint trims in order to cover the 1200mm wall. With the laminate (1200mm) panel kits you will not have this problem, but you will have a large amount of panel left over once you've completed the job!You may prefer to purchase individual panel packs. Our Classico tongue and groove range of wall panels cover 1250mm per pack and are superb value. Three of these packs would suffice for your project and leave minimal waste, whilst being more economical than a full kit (even including the price of joint & edge trims, adhesive, cladseal etc.) If you are not sure exactly what you require, please feel free to give us a call on 0114 2799188 and one of our friendly staff will be able to give you a full quote.

Hi Brian - this sounds like a fairly specific job, so for a full breakdown you'd be best giving us a call on 0114 2799188. However I'll try to answer your questions in brief here: 1. the panels are fairly lightweight so assuming they're not going to be bearing any loads, this should be OK. We would recommend that you screw the panels into the beams - you place the screws in the T&G part of the panel, so that the screwhead is hidden once the panels are slotted together. 2. I assume you are referring to our J-shaped edge trim? You certainly could use this, or some of our ceiling coving - either would suffice. 3 & 4. I couldn't say for certain as you haven't given me the length of your ceiling down both sides - however a pack of 2.7m panels covering 2.7 x 1m would cost £43 and a pack of 5m covering 5x1m would cost £79.62 (both prices inc.

Hello Johanna, thanks for your query. It's certainly safe and easy to fit, and because the panels can be wiped down, then you don't need to worry about using any 'extra-strength' cleaning products which may be less safe to use in a food preparation environment. In terms of fire safety, they're class 1 fire rated, so while strong and durable, they are NOT fireproof - they're plastic, so they will melt if exposed to high temperatures for long periods of time. For this reason, if you plan on cladding behind a hob, or any area which might be exposed to hot fats/oils, then we'd recommend fitting a piece of stainless steel on top of the panel where it meets said area. All things considered, then, we would be confident in recommending our wall panels and wall cladding for kitchens, and there are certainly no safety reasons not to do so.

Many people order wall panels for existing baths and showers, and so clad the area between the bath shelf and the ceiling only (i.e. they don't take the bath itself out to fit the panels). So if you wanted to fit the bath first, and then fit the panels above the bath and run them up to the ceiling, that wouldn't be an issue. Likewise, if you'd like to fit the panels to the full length of the wall and then install the bath tub, that wouldn't be an issue (this might be a more practical solution for some bathrooms e.g. if the bath itself is an awkward shape) but please bear in mind that these panels are not meant to be load-bearing, so while a bath wouldn't be an issue, a corresponding handrail, for example, should be attached to the walls through the panel, not the panel itself. In terms of cutting, all our panels can easily be cut. Use a good quality cutting utensil such as an electric jigsaw with >1mm pitch, or a junior hacksaw with >15 teeth per inch.

Hi Kayleigh. We would certainly recommend our panels in this situation, as they're completely waterproof when fit and come with a 10 year guarantee. If the cause of the mould/damp is exposure to moisture from within the bathroom, then these panels would prevent that (although you would need to dry out the walls completely before attaching the panels). However, if the source of the damp is coming from behind the walls, then fitting these panels will only trap the problem and make it much harder to treat, so you need to be sure that the problem is caused by bathroom moisture and not any moisture from within or behind the wall itself.

Hi John. 2mm is the tolerance limit over a span of 4 feet, so if the subfloor is uneven over 2mm (1/16") then you'll need to sand down or level the floor with a floor leveller. You could also use underlay - whichever method works best for you, so long as the subfloor is flat, dry, clean and solid before you lay the aquafloor down.

Hi there Anthony, thanks for your question. This shouldn't be a problem - you would be able to fix the sheets using our adhesive to the studding providing it isn't overly glossy. However you might want to consider something a little more substantial, as our panels are intended for wall cladding, not for wall forming, and so for our thinner panels, I wouldn't recommend fitting these to a narrow metal stud framework. The adhesive generally takes around 45 minutes to begin to key (it's not a contact adhesive), but to completely cure we'd recommend you leave it overnight.

Hi Mary, thanks for your question. Yes, that wouldn't be a problem. Providing that the surface is fundamentally smooth and has no loose sections, you can clad our panels to almost anything - including existing tiles. Make sure the surface is free from film, dirt, wax or any residue and remove any wallpaper or coverings. For tiles/painted surfaces, depending on how glossy the surface is, you may be best sanding the area so as to create a key for the adhesive. We would recommend 100% coverage of adhesive, so as a general rule of thumb two tubes of adhesive per large panel/pack of narrow panels should be sufficient.

Hi Pamela, thanks for your question. I'm afraid I wouldn't be certain of the best way to approach this if the old panels you refer to are panels from another company/another product but assuming that they are IPSL panels: yes, this can be done, but it won't be easy! The reason we have a 10 year guarantee on our products is because they're made to last - if the panels were installed as recommended, then they'll be stuck fast to the subwall and will be very difficult to shift. They CAN be removed from the wall, but it will be a case of pulling/tearing them from the wall, breaking them up as you go. It may even be easier to clad the new panels on top of the existing ones! If you're a novice at DIY I'd recommend you seek the advice of a local fitter or joiner as it will probably be a fairly difficult task I'm afraid!

Hi Alison. You can certainly clad our panels to tiles, providing that they're flat, dry and none of them are loose. If they're particularly glossy it may be worth sanding them down beforehand to allow the adhesive to key. Make sure the surface is free from film, dirt, wax or any residue and remove any wallpaper or coverings (although it's not likely you'd have any on top of tiles anyway). You certainly can put the boards halfway up - we'd recommend that you use a capping/edge trim along the top (exposed) length of the panel to maintain waterproofing. If you were to do this then the panels would be 100% waterproof. Our panels come in standard sizes as advertised - we can't cut them to size for you, but they are extremely easy to cut.

Hello Adam, thanks for your query. You are correct in that the trims for our pastel colour panel range (Aqua, Creme, Dusk and Powder) are different from the trims for our bold colour panel range, but both kinds will give you a 100% waterproof finish when fitted. The corner for the Powder panels is a plant on right angle trim i.e. once both panels have been fitted, you would attach this trim to the corner above the panels, fixing it using silicone. I'm afraid we don't do any metallic/chrome trims for any of our panels - we used to provide a similar product but we had problems with the trim covering peeling and so stopped stocking these. We do have a trim for where the panel meets a shower tray - we use a product called Cladseal, which you can find on our website under the Trims for PVC Wall Panels section. This would be fitted underneath the panels (i.e. before they're put on the walls) and would also give you a 100% waterproof finish. Finally, we'd recommend that you use two tubes of our PU (polyurethane) adhesive per panel, and go for 100% adhesive coverage on the wall section you wish to clad (apply the adhesive to the wall area and then push the panels into place).

Hi Paul, thanks for your question. That would be absolutely fine. Basically, any substrate should be fine with our panels when using our adhesive - you'll get a good hold with any surface, provided it meets a few basic points.

First, the area needs to be flat and dry. Any wall coverings - paper, film etc. - need to be removed (you want to stick the panels to the wall, not to a surface on the wall that might easily come off). If you're fixing onto tiles or anything similarly glossy, you may want to consider sanding them down to create a key for the adhesive.

Lastly, we recommend that the subwall you choose is as solid and complete as possible - while some people might want to clad onto a stud/metal framework, although you might get a good hold, these panels are intended to clad walls and not form them, so we'd always recommend that your subwall is substantial enough to form a wall in its own right even before the panels are attached.

Hi Anthony, thanks for your query. You wouldn't necessarily have to remove the tiles, but doing so might make it easier to fit around the existing shower parts. (And if the tiles are particularly glossy you'd be advised to sand them down anyway, to create a key for the adhesive.) You'd have to cut holes in the wall panels in order to allow the parts of the shower to come through, which might be tricky, but you'd have to do this anyway if you have the shower in place on that wall as the panels are intended for wall cladding, not wall forming, and thus wouldn't be suitable for bearing loads - so you'd be better off fitting through the panels as opposed to fitting them to them. The best way to cut the panels is to use a good quality electric jig saw.

Hi John, it would depend on the weights involved. Our panels aren't designed to be load-bearing. If it's a screen which is only going to be attached to the panel vertically (and will most likely be supported horizontally by a bath shelf or shower tray underneath) then it wouldn't be a problem, but anything heavy like a shower unit, or load-bearing like a handrail, would likely pull on the panels and cause damage in the long term. For that reason, we'd always recommend that, wherever possible, you cut through the panels and attach weighty objects to the subwall underneath. As the subwall itself is the actual wall structure it will be better positioned to support the load (remember, our panels are for wall cladding - not wall forming!)

Hello Samantha, installing our ceiling panels is simple. You mention 'aqua ceiling panels' - I'm not sure what you're referring to, but if it's our Aquabord, or our Aqua coloured Proclad, then you'd probably be best avoiding these particular products for a ceiling - the easiest panels to install as ceiling panels are our Aquaclad narrow tongue-and-groove panels.

These are narrower and lighter than the other kinds and can be fit without using adhesive (which is obviously more difficult to fit to a ceiling as you'll need to hold the panel in place for a long period of time while the adhesive keys). The best way to fit these is to use screws, so make sure that your ceiling can be screwed into. If this isn't possible, consider fitting wooden battens first that can be screwed into.

When you put the first panel up, screw into the groove section. Then, when you slide the tongue of the next panel into place, it'll cover up the head of the screw. (If you're using battens, run the panels in the opposite direction so as to screw into them where they cross over.)

If you're planning on using coving or edge trim, this should go up beforehand along three sides of the ceiling (assuming the room has four walls) - you'll need the last one 'open' in order to get the panels in. Use adhesive to fix the trim. Because you're screwing the panels in, the coving won't be load-bearing. For the last length of coving, you'll want to cut the back section off (i.e. the part that usually clips around the panel) and stick it in place onto the panel using the adhesive.

Hi Allan, many thanks for your query.

The most economical option would be to use packs of our Aquaclad narrow tongue-and-groove panels. You can see the full range here.

Unlike with our Aquabord, which are the same price across the range, our Aquaclad prices depend on which kind of panel you go for, and they vary in width and length. So (depending if you were looking to cover 2 or 3 of those walls within the shower enclosure) you might need a different number of packs depending on which panel kind you go for.

href="https://www.ipsluk.co.uk/aquaclad-classico-black-rainbow-sparkle-2-6m-5-pack.html">Classico range are 250mm wide panels, and in one pack (£40.50) you'll receive five panels, so your coverage per pack is 2.6m high by 1250mm wide.

These panels all fit together in a tongue-and-groove fashion, so you won't need joint trims. You'll need edge trim to cover the exposed ends of the panels (and, possibly, the top of the panels as well - especially if you're not running the panels all the way to the ceiling) and corner trims for the internal angles.

Good morning Sandra, many thanks for your query.

Any of our ceiling panels would be suitable for those showers. If you're not looking to replace the wall coverings at the same time, then the best way to install them would be to use wooden battens on the existing ceiling and run the panels across the battens in the opposite direction, screwing them into the wood.

All these panels are tongue-and-groove. If you screw into the groove section, then when you slot the next panel into place, the tongue will hide the head of the screw. You can also use our ceiling coving for a high-quality, decorative, fully waterproof finish.

This will prevent you from having problems with mould in the future. If you're not sure exactly how much you'd need to order, feel free to give us a call on 0114 279 9188 and we can give you a quote based on your ceiling measurements.

Hello Dave, thanks for your question. Yes, you'd need three panels. The Cladseal trims come 1850mm long so you would need two of those. That trim is installed using the sanitary silicone sealant so you'd want to use a couple of tubes of that to ensure that trim is fitted correctly. You would need the one corner trim, that's correct, and edge trims for the end of the wall. We'd recommend four edge trims in total - one each for the panel ends that don't go into the corner, and two for capping off the tops of the panels. If you were to use the Laminate panels, you would have to use an 'H' joint trim to join them along wall sections wider than 1200mm (the width of the Laminate panels). So if you'd prefer just a barely visible hairline groove you're best sticking with the tongue-and-groove 1000mm Aquabord panels!

Hello Dave,

Many thanks for your question.

We do have panels that come exactly 2400mm x 1200mm - that's our Aquabord Laminate panel range. These panels are 10mm thick, with a solid core of uPVC foam and front and back laminate sections. The front section is a glossy decorative laminate, similar to 'Formica'.

We also have panels that come 8 ft tall and 4 ft wide which in metric comes to 2440mm x 1220mm - just larger than you'd need (so you could cut them down). This is our Proclad range: these are solid sheets of uPVC, 2.5mm thick (with the exception of the gloss white sheet, which is 3mm thick).

If you'd like to try the other panels we do, our Aquabord PVC T&G panels come 1000mm wide and 2400mm tall. They have a hollow corrugated box section running top-to-bottom through the centre of the panel, and are 10.5mm thick. They're like a wider, tougher version of the Aquaclad panels, which are narrow, lightweight T&G panels ideal for waterproofing other wall surfaces and ceilings.

Finally, we have a tile panel called Dumawall. These panels are 650mm x 375mm, 5mm thick, solid uPVC. We sell these in packs of 8 and they connect together easily on all four sides leaving a U-groove between them, giving a clear tile effect but without the risk of ever encountering mouldy grout!

Hello John, thanks for getting in touch.

If the tiled surface is flat, solid and dry, with no loose tiles, then you will be able to clad our panels directly to them. The entire area you wish to clad will need to be tiled, as if there is a lowered section without tiles that you also want to panel, that won't work - the panels need to go onto an entirely flat surface.

If the tiles are ceramic and quite glossy, you may wish to sand them down first to help create a key for the adhesive. If the condition of the tiles isn't great, then you would be best fitting onto new plasterboard, but this doesn't necessarily need skimming - again, so long as the substrate is flat, solid and dry, you can clad these panels to most surfaces using our adhesive.

From here you can download the fitting instructions for all the different panels that we sell and there are also handy fitting videos for you to watch.

The products are sold with DIY'ers in mind and in it's most simplistic form, it is a case of measuring, cutting and sticking. We can offer advice over the phone, and via email, and help work out what you need with the dimensions you give us if you are unsure.

You can cut all our products down to the sizes needed. Use a fine toothed blade – we recommend a handsaw or hacksaw with at least 15 teeth per inch, or an electric jigsaw with at least 1mm pitch (or finer). Cut indoors at room temperature. You would need to cut face up with a hack or handsaw, and face down with the jigsaw.

Hi Simon, Many thanks for your question. I’m not sure what you mean by ‘threads’ on the fittings! If your shower enclosure / screen is already nicely fitted and you don’t want to take it all off and put it on again, then you can clad our panels directly to the existing tiles. The only issue might be where the edges and pieces of the fittings (which I think might be what you mean by ‘threads’?) jut up to the edge of our panels – if those fittings aren’t flat and don’t meet plumb with the panel edges, you would have some grooves that would be awkward to clean in the future. It might be worth considering using some of our Proclad panels. These particular ones are only 2.5mm thick so wouldn’t add too much more thickness onto the existing tiled area. They’re solid uPVC and 100% waterproof. If the tiles you’re cladding to are ceramic, and particularly glossy, you would be better served sanding them down first to help create a key for the adhesive. You can fit shower units, holders, rails etc. through the panels and into the subwall underneath – it would need to be the substrate that takes the load of any items fitted, as the panels are designed only to clad the walls, not form wall structures in their own right i.e. they’re not load-bearing.

As the panel is made from PVC material it is not suitable to be used directly behind any heat sources such as cookers, hobs and ovens as it has a softening point of 60°c. There are a variety of colour matched trims that you would use with the Proclad panels including: Internal & External corners, Edge trims and Joint trims. We recommend that you use 2 tubes of our HB40 high grab adhesive per panel.

Hi Jo, thanks for the question, it is possible to extend the length of the ceiling panels by using a 1 part joint trim (H Section joint). This will allow you to carry on the overall length of the panels to fit your ceiling dimensions. You can find them under the Trims for Ceiling Panels section on our Domestic Panels menu

Hi Patricia, thanks for the question, our panels would not fix to cork boards or anything similar (wallpaper etc.) The boards are put on using an adhesive and require a flat solid substrate to be cladded onto, if you were to clad them to the cork boards you are relying on whatever is holding the cork boards to the wall to hold the panels as well.

Hi Roger, our panels just require being clad on to a flat solid surface. Surfaces such as plasterboard, brickwork, tiles and plywood would be suitable for this as the panels get their strength from this. OSB boards of a good quality and thickness could be suitable depending on the environment however, in a bakery something like a fireproof plasterboard may be more suitable.

Hi Chris, thanks for the question. The waterproof flooring requires a flat level surface to be laid upon, if your tiles and grout lines are pretty even then this shouldn't be a problem but any gaps or unevenness will need to be filled first. The flooring is often laid upon plywood sheets, concrete floors and can also be laid upon under floor heating.

Overview:

I want to use 3 Aquabord PVC panels in an alcove shower enclosure.

Question:

When installing the middle panel on the back wall of the alcove the instructions indicate that the internal corner trims should be fitted first, How then can the panel be fitted? It looks as if the panel will overlap the corner trims and there would be no room to slide the panel sideways into the trims.
