Wall panels are a great concept but are they waterproof at the joints?
Yes - panels are totally waterproof!
Wall panels ,like the concept, my question is would water get between the the joins and cause damp behind the pabels,are they completely waterproof?
Written By AlanIPSL have been supplying wall paneling for over 20 years and leaking through the panels or at joints is simply not an issue. Depending on the panels the join may be with the built in T&G or with a separate jointing piece. The T&G and separate joint pieces are designed to be an interference and overlap fit - guaranteeing waterproofing - but for additional peace of mind a small bead of silicon can be used in the join as well. Bottom edges in showers are always vulnerable to leaks - we supply special trims (Cladseal) to ensure waterproofing. Hope this helps!
