Choosing a Bath Panel
A straight bath requires a bath side panel and end panel in order to create the illusion of a built-in unit. Whirlpool baths are also classed as straight baths, so the same principle applies when it comes to fitting a bath panel.
Similar to a straight bath, it is recommended that bath panels are used for a shower bath, in order to create a unified design for your bath. We offer a suitable range of ‘L’ and ‘P’ shaped bath panels to meet your requirements perfectly. An end panel and bath side panel should be used in order to create the cohesive design.
Bath Panel Materials
Our bath panels are produced from the highest quality materials, including MDF and acrylic. Two of the most popular material sources for a bath panel, they are built to last, so you can be sure of the quality of the products in stock and that they will last for years to come. The bath panels come with a 10 year ‘Fit & Forget’ guarantee. Our everyday price promise also means you can create a unified bathroom design, without breaking the bank. The hardest part will be deciding which panel to buy.
How to Fit Bath Panels
Fitting a bath panel is a surprisingly easier than you may believe and whilst we would also recommend you seek the services of a professional plumber, doing smaller jobs can save money, making the installation of your new bath cost effective.
Things you will need:
- Wooden Batten
- Wood Screws
- Screw Drivers
- Tape Measure
- Ensure the area in which you are fitting your bath panel is smooth, without any obstructions, as this could eventually cause problems when attaching the panel to the side of your bath.
- Place the wooden battens along the side and at the front of your bath. Use a spirit measure to ensure the battens are straight and in line with the top of your bath.
- Once you are happy that the battens are straight, using the electric drill screw the battens into the floor to secure them.
- Place the lip of the panel underneath the rim of the bath, sliding the panel into place. Start with the end panel and continue onto the side panel.
