Waterproof wall panelling

Waterproof wall panels

The modern alternative alternative to ceramic tiles


Wall tiles. Are they a thing of the past?

In truth, it is highly unlikely that traditional tiled walls will suddenly disappear in favour of waterproof panels, but there are very good reasons why they might. When you consider things such as cost, the time consuming process of installation and the inevitable need for maintenance at some point in the future when grout becomes old and shabby it all begins to favour the simplicity and durability of waterproof panels.

Let's not forget leaks. Even the best tiling job will eventually begin to let water slip by into the fabric of the building. The problem is you won't know until it's too late. Once a damp patch appears you can be sure water has been leaking for quite some time. With damp comes the smell. Warm damp environments are perfect for bacteria to multiply.

Waterproof wall panels negate most of the problems associated with tiling. A minimal number of joints between panels and a clever system of connection means there's nowhere for water to ingress.

Ceramic and porcelain tiles require expert knowledge and specialist equipment to cut and hang. Waterproof panels need nothing more than an eye for measuring, a saw and a tube of adhesive.

Tiling takes days. Once hung, the tile adhesive needs to cure before grout can be applied. Waterproof panels take only a matter of hours from start to finish!

Traditional tiles are extremely heavy. As such, a substrate capable of supporting many kilos per square metre is a essential. Waterproof panels are incredibly light and spread their modest weight across a large area. So, even if your walls aren't that good waterproof panelling will transform their function and appearance at a stroke. Where time is money you don't need to debate the matter for long.

Manufacturers have differing ideas on how panels should be constructed. There are also different thicknesses and widths available. Where one manufacturer laminates the face of a marine plywood backing, others laminate the face of a cellular honeycomb made entirely from plastic. Whichever you consider to be the most durable and water-resistant, cutting is easily achieved with a wood saw and/or jigsaw.

A superb range of waterproof panels and finishes are available to give you freedom to produce a beautiful creation simply and easily. Suitable for, but not exclusive to, wet areas or where there is a high level airborne moisture - showers, kitchens, bathrooms, utility areas etc. Panelling can be utilised simply for its finish. Foyers, offices, reception areas, hairdressers, restaurants, trade stands and work areas can now be transformed with a light-weight covering that makes such a visual difference.

Waterproof panelling can be used in place of tiles more or less anywhere.

So... could tiles become a thing of the past?
