Nuance wall panels should be cleaned regularly to avoid build up of limescale, soap scum and other bathroom dirt. To clean, simply spray a non-abrasive bathroom cleaner, wipe with a clean damp non-abrasive cloth (micro fibre is fine) then rinse away any cleaning residue with cold water.

Yes, Nuance is a waterproof system! Our panels are guaranteed to remain watertight and waterproof for 15 years from date of purchase, as long as they’ve been installed as per our instructions and maintained as per our recommendations (read our 15 Year Guarantee below for more information).

Nuance Panels are guaranteed to remain watertight and waterproof for 15 years from date of purchase, as long as they’ve been installed as per our instructions and maintained as per our recommendations. Regular maintenance and care is required to ensure your system stays watertight, so make sure you follow our fitting instructions for the correct panel type, and read our care guide. We recommend replacing your silicone sealant every 18 months to ensure your system remains watertight and waterproof. Systems where the sealant has failed due to lack of maintenance will not be valid under our guarantee.

With the exception of WPC Tile collection, our decors are not designed to align across joints. The impact will vary based on the décor, on some it may be more evident than others. Some onsite scribing may be required to ensure panels completely align.

Here are four advantages of shower panels over tiles:

  1. They will save you money On average, you can save up to 25% on shower panels vs tiles. That makes some sense though; not only do you need two or three panels vs multiple tiles, but the longevity of our products means that there’s a saving on the full life cost, too.
  2. No grout = no mould. Imagine your shower wall as one expanse of easy to clean surface – no grout lines, no breaks in the elegant design. Without grouting lines, we’ve eliminated the breeding ground for mould that you get with tiles. What’s more, with our Nuance & Nuance Designer Range you don’t even need trims. Instead, we offer colour compatible sealant which creates an even more seamless, sophisticated finish.
  3. They are quicker to install If you think of tiling a bathroom enclosure as a 300-piece puzzle, then installing shower panels is an easy 3-piece puzzle. For you, that helps your installer get in and out quicker, meaning your bathroom gets back to being your bathroom sooner. Plus, you don’t need a specialist tiler to do the work, and any tradesperson will be able to fit and install your panels.
  4. They’re easier to maintain and stay cleaner. No grubby grout lines means no endless scrubbing. With their non-porous surface, shower panels can be cleaned using normal soap, water, and a soft cloth. A selection of our panels are also available in our Antibacterial Coating which further enhances this cleanliness. The antibacterial coating is incorporated into the panel during the production process and kills bacteria as it comes into contact with the surface.

The answer is yes and no. Nuance & Nuance Designer panels can be, however Nuance Acrylic can not!

The primary fixing for Nuance should always be our Complete adhesive. Our Nuance Acrylic panels should be used with Stixall Neutral Cure adhesive.

Check the installation instructions to be sure that you have the right adhesive for your panel.
