Installation

PLEASE ONLY USE NEUTRAL CURE/SOLVENT-FREE SILICONE / ADHESIVE GLUE TO AVOID DAMAGE TO ARTWORK PRINTED ON THE BACK OF PANELS

Always follow the adhesive manufacturers instructions when using silicones in wet areas. Always ensure to test your silicone in an inconspicuous area as silicones can contain fillers that may damage your Rock Salt shower / kitchen panel.

Inspection:

Panels must be thoroughly inspected upon receipt for damage or visible defects. The panels are supplied with a protective clear film to the decorative face, this should be peeled back to check for damage or discrepancies in colour* where necessary then replaced to provide protection during installation.

Do not install panels that you find to be defective.

Once the panels or profiles have been cut or installed we regard this as an acceptance of their quality and suitability for purpose and therefore we cannot accept any subsequent claims for faults or damage.

Storage

Panels should always be stored flat to avoid bowing.

  • Panels should never be stored outside.
  • Neutral Cure Solvent Free Adhesive should be stored in cool dry conditions between 5 ‐ 25°C

Handling

Acrylic panels can have extremely sharp edges and we advise that suitable gloves be worn for protection when handling and installing them.
Extra care should be taken when handling, dry jointing and installing larger or shaped panels that have cut‐ outs in them as excessive flexing can cause cracking around the cut‐outs. We can cut your panel to the desired size, just let us know your exact measurements.

Planning & Preparation

Before you undertake any type of installation it is always wise to carry out a degree of planning that might save you a lot of time and grief later on. Below are some points that may help.

  • Panel Lining Surface

Acrylic panels must be fitted to a continuous surface such as plaster board, existing tiling, chipboard & plywood sheathing and tile backers providing the surface it is sound, plumb and level. Some surfaces do require pre‐ treatment before installation, tiles should be de‐greased and fresh plaster should be sealed with a proprietary PVA sealer.

It is important to ensure that there are no areas of wall to be clad where there are distinct differences in shading such as tape lines in plaster boarding as these can show through when installing lighter colours.

  • Services

Necessary pipe work should be fitted and short tails left where they are to pass through panels. Electrical cabling should be in place and routed to avoid subsequent fixing points.
Shower trays and baths should be fitted in position, these should also be sealed in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations.

  • Allowances

The Acrylic panels are subject to expansion and contraction during normal use so it is necessary to make allowances for this during installation. If the profiles are not being used then a 3mm gap should be left between the edge of the panel and any adjoining surface, this gap should then be sealed with solvent free silicone.

Expel air pockets by pushing air out of the top end of the panel. Immediately clean away any excess silicone or adhesive. Trapped air can cause the shower wall to warp and buckle due to the trapped air expanding.

Tools & Fixings

Tools and fixings that you will need to install the panels include –

  • Jigsaw, circular saw or router
  • Screwdriver
  • Mastic Gun
  • Measuring tape & pencil
  • Masking Tape
  • Neutral Cure Adhesive
  • Solvent Free Silicone Sealant

Sizing & Cutting

Before cutting you should make sure that you have taken into account any allowances for profiles that are to be used.

The acrylic panels can be cut either using a circular saw, jigsaw or router. Whichever method is used, it is essential that the panel is face upwards, well supported and clamped in place to prevent chattering.

Top Tip: Applying masking tape to the soul plate of the saw or router can prevent scratching.

Circular Saw

Tungsten Carbide Tipped (TCT) blades that are designed for metals or plastics should be used as these will be fine toothed and give the best finish, the following recommendations should be followed

Jig Saw

Jigsaw blades that are specifically designed to cut Acrylic should be used such as the Bosch T101A or Makita A-85721 B-21 if these are not available then a fine toothed blade such as those designed to cut metals should be used. A high speed should be selected and the rotary action switched off.

Router

A straight TCT fluted cutter should be used with a cutting speed of 4500m/min

Twist Drills

HSS twist drills specifically made for metals or plastics can be used and will have a point angle of between 60° ‐ 90°. Standard drill bits which generally have a much flatter point angle can cause the acrylic to crack these drill bits can be re‐sharpened to achieve this angle. When drilling a slow speed should be selected and the acrylic panel must be supported below.

Hole Saws

Hole saws can be used to cut the Acrylic panels but must be the type designed to cut metal sheet and the pilot drill must have a point angle of between 60° ‐ 90° as above.
The panel must be supported from behind and It is recommended to drill half way through the panel then turn over and finish the hole from the other side, this will prevent the edge from shattering. The edges of the hole should then be de‐burred with 100 grit paper.

Cut‐Outs

Shaped cut‐outs can be formed by drilling 8mm diameter holes in the corners of the required shape and then cutting between using a jigsaw with an acrylic blade. It is important that the panel is supported at all times. With all cut outs a radius of at least 4mm must be left in the corners failure to do this can lead to the acrylic cracking.

Adhesive application

Only a Neutral Cure Clear adhesive such as Stixall should be used. Dry fitting should always be carried out before adhesive application.
Apply the adhesive in a minimum of 7mm diameter beads in vertical lines 100mm apart to the wall surface also ensure that beads applied around cut outs. Remove the clear protective film from the back of the panel to expose the painted surface before bonding.

When installing two sheets you must allow for a 3mm silicone gap around each edge to compensate for sheet expansion and contraction or a 6mm silicone gap on either the right or left edge and the top or bottom edge.

Apply the panel to the wall within 30 minutes of adhesive application and using a straight edge apply even pressure to the surface to ensure a uniform finish.

Masking

Preparing the panels with masking tape before sealing can
save a lot of time cleaning off excess sealant later on in
the installation, especially at the bottom joints where a larger coved seal will be formed.

Sealing at the bottom

A 3mm ‐ 4mm gap must be left between the bottom of the panel and top of the shower tray or bath, this can be achieved by using packers when fixing panels. The gaps should then be sealed ensuring that the silicone is forced into the void.

Sealing at apertures & Cut‐outs

A clearance gap of 2‐3mm all around should be allowed where pipes or fittings come through the panel even where collars are to be fitted. The gap should then be filled with sealant.

Fitting through Acrylic Panels

Fittings such as shower attachments, screens, towel rails, etc. can be fixed directly through the panels using suitable fixings. Heavy items will need solid fixing points behind the panels to provide the necessary support, these should be considered when planning your installation.

Watch a short video of how to cut your Splashbax Acrylic Shower Wall Panels designed by Rock Salt Prints.

We recommend you prepare your wall surface with some plaster primer, as per the example below.

This will help with adhesion between the wall surface and the acrylic panel.

Please do not use PVA as this could burn through the image on the back of the acrylic panel, much like using solvent based silicone. (Neutral cure/solvent free silicone/adhesive must be used)

Please use this plaster primer if possible: Click Here

    Stunning Acrylic Shower Panel Designs
    To anyone wanting a unique and stunning design for their shower room, you must look at their designs. We decided on the Elvis print 2240 x 1700. Pete, from Rock Salt Prints helped me at every stage including cutting the panels to size for a perfect fit. At 5mm thick they are rigid enough not to ripple or leave a uneven surface. My wife is so happy with the outcome. Well worth scouring the net for! Thank you.
