    Whichever Bath Panel you choose be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions carefully.

    Step 1

    Step 1

    Measure your bath and if possible get a new bath panel that is the size required. If this is not possible buy a larger one and you can cut it down.

    Step 2

    Step 2

    Remove the existing bath panel from the frame. If it is screwed in, unscrew the panel to release it from the frame. If it is attached by a spring clip release catch, pull it from the frame.

    Step 3

    Step 3

    Measure the distance from the floor to the underside of the lip of the bath. Remember to always read the manufacturers instructions as these measurements can vary.

    Step 4

    Step 4

    Place the floor plinth on the ground. Place the bath panel directly on top of the plinth. Measure from the top of the panel to the bottom of the plinth with the measurements taken from the bath. Screw the panel to the plinth making sure the total height matches your measurement.

    For increased waterproofing, remove the panel from the plinth and compress a bead of sealant between the interface of the panel and plinth above the screw securing points and fit the panel back to the plinth.

    Step 5

    Step 5

    Without separating the two halves, remove the backing strips from one side of each of the three hook and loop tapes and apply them to the three vertical uprights of the timber frame. They need to be positioned and stuck nearer to the bottom of the uprights.

    Step 6

    Step 6

    Remove the other tape backing strips, and then fit the panel and plinth by first locating and inserting the top of the panel, and then pushing in the bottom so that the plinth rests on the floor, and the panel is firmly secured.

    Step 7

    Step 7

    Your new decorative Bath Panel is now installed.
