If you are unsure about any fitting details or have a different type of installation please don’t hesitate to get in contact with a member of our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
To make sure that the installation process is as easy as possible for you or your fitter, we have a technical helpline. This will put you through to one of the team in Scotland, who will be more than happy to help with any questions.
When cutting the panels to width and height using a handsaw, the decorative face should be facing upwards.When cutting with a jigsaw or circular saw, the decorative face should be facing downwards.
A clearance of 1/16″ should be left where pipes or fittings come through the panel even where collars are to be fitted. The clearance should then be filled with Wetwall silicone sealant.
If a Wetseal is not being fitted then a 1/8″ gap should be left between the bottom of the panel and the shower tray or bath by using packers when fixing panels. The gaps should then be sealed using Wetwall silicone sealant. Wetwall silicone sealant should also be used in all the corner and capping profiles. See video below if using Wetseal kit.
The panels can be fixed to most surfaces using adhesive, providing they are sound and free from loose particles.
The panels can also be fixed directly onto existing tiling providing they have been de-greased.
Fittings and shower attachments can be fixed directly to the panels using suitable fixings. Heavier items such as sanitary ware and accessible furniture will require the provision of additional support behind the panels.
