Perform Panels are engineered for attachment to various surfaces, including tiles, concrete, plaster, plasterboard, and chipboard/plywood walls, provided they are structurally sound and in good condition. In cases where the surface is uneven or damaged, affixing timber grounds vertically at approximately 60cm intervals and horizontally at 80cm intervals as needed is recommended. These timber grounds should be meticulously inspected for accuracy and alignment before commencing with the installation of panels.

1. Surface Preparation:

Ensure the wall surface is thoroughly cleaned, dried, and devoid of debris or dust particles.
Address any cracks, holes, or irregularities on the wall surface.
Identify and rectify any protrusions or obstructions that impede the panel installation process.

2. Measurement and Planning:

Measure the dimensions of the wall area where the wetwall panels will be installed.
Strategically plan the panel layout to optimize material utilization and minimize wastage.
Mark reference lines on the wall surface to serve as a guide during installation.

3. Panel Cutting:

Use appropriate cutting tools, such as a fine-tooth saw or jigsaw, to trim the wetwall panels to fit the measured dimensions accurately.
Ensure precise cutting, especially for accommodating fixtures or fittings.

4. Adhesive Application:

Apply a recommended adhesive to the back of each panel following the manufacturer's instructions.
Spread the adhesive uniformly across the entire panel surface to ensure secure adhesion to the wall.

5. Panel Installation:

Begin installing panels from one corner of the wall, ensuring alignment with the reference lines.
Utilize a spirit level to verify the panels are vertically plumb and horizontally level.
Continuously install subsequent panels, maintaining tight seams and consistent spacing between panels.
Trim panels as necessary to accommodate corners, edges, or obstacles.

6. Panel Securing:

Secure panels in place using panel pins or screws, particularly around edges and corners.
Exercise caution to avoid over-tightening screws, which could potentially damage the panels.

7. Joint and Edge Sealing:

Once all panels are installed, seal joints and edges using a waterproof sealant.
Ensure thorough sealing to prevent water infiltration and achieve a seamless finish.

8. Finishing and Cleaning:

Remove any excess adhesive or sealant from panel surfaces using a damp cloth or sponge.
Allow the adhesive and sealant to fully cure per the manufacturer's instructions before utilizing the shower or bathroom.
Adhering to these steps can ensure a smooth and successful installation of wetwall bathroom and shower wall panels, resulting in a waterproof and aesthetically pleasing finish for your space. Always refer to the specific recommendations provided by the manufacturer for your wetwall panel product.
