Handsaw or Jigsaw or Circular Saw
Suction cups and ear protection are also recommended
Ensure panels are stored flat prior to fitting*
The wall panels can be fixed to an existing wall or directly over tiles providing the surface is flat and plumb. It is also essential that the walls are free from dust and grease. Clean down any surfaces and wait until completely dry. If the walls are not flat, then treated battens must be used to install the panels.
First, ensure walls and bath are level. Then measure around the length and width of the bath for the Sureseal strips to be fitted. Showerwall’s Sureseal is a three-part system and provides a watertight finish at the base of the panel. It consists of a PVC strip and Showerwall sealant. Using the mitre box provided from the Showerwall installation kit, insert the Sureseal strip, complete with face cap and cut the required 45 degree internal corner angle. Notch both ends to accommodate the internal corner with a hacksaw. Check the mitre cuts and notches match up and mark with a pencil as a guide. Apply Showerwall sealant into the underside channel of the Sureseal strip, making sure the cavity is totally filled. Lay a straight line of Showerwall sealant on the bath or shower tray and on the mitred joint to fuse together and nail to the wall.
Panel 1: Showerwall panels will often require cutting before installation so ensure the cutting line is measured and marked before any alterations. Measure the height required and cut the panel to fit, a 3mm gap is left at the top edge of the panel and around any cut outs. Any holes for pipes or showerheads should also be made at this point. Remove the protective film from the panel and cut with the décor side up to avoid chipping, you can do this using a handsaw, jigsaw or circular saw. Fix the corner trim to the wall using Showerwall adhesive and ensure this is level. Measure the width of the wall allowing for a 15mm gap for the corner trim, then cut accordingly. Fit the endcap to the panel using sealant
Panel 1: Apply sealant to the Sureseal strip and corner trim. Apply 6mm lines of adhesive to the walls, evenly spaced in waves or zig-zag patterns. Place the bottom edge of the panel so that it’s sitting on the sealant of the Sureseal strip. Then position the first panel into the corner trim.
Panel 2: Cut the panel, removing the tongue edge to fit into the corner trim. Then cut the panel to the required height. Repeat step 4 – adding sealant to the Sureseal strip and corner, and adhesive to the walls. Use suction cups to help position your panel in place and guide neatly into the corner trim.
Panel 3: Measure from the edge of panel 2 to the wall remember to remove 15mm to allocate space for the corner trim. Make sure that the measurement is taken from the panel edge and not the tongue profile. Cut the panel to fit, then fix the corner trim to the cut panel edge using sealant. Then add a small bead of sealant to the tongue edge and place into the groove edge of panel 2 at an angle. From here you will be able to pivot the panel towards the wall and fix. Wipe away any excess sealant.
Panel 4: Cut your final panel to size and attach the endcap with sealant. Repeat step 4 and place the panel into the corner trim before pressing firmly and fixing to the wall
Finally, you will need to seal the expansion gap at the ceiling edge to ensure its water-tight and leave for 24 hours for the sealant and adhesive to set before it is ready to use. Once complete you will have a 100% water tight system with a 15 year guarantee. To learn more, download the full Showerwall HPL Installation Guide.
