Product good...but there can be a different shades
"The product is good and looks great when fitted. But be warned that there are two slightly different shades of colour. One has a slightly darker overall tint of grey in the main coverage area and the marble veins also appear darker, the other version is a brighter appearance overall in the main area,[more white] and the grey veins also appear paler in colour .... but you cant really tell until they are fitted together. I have done my bathroom walls with them and there is a definate noticeable difference between the two versions if they are placed next to each other, i personally got around the problem by filling 2 walls with one of the shades and the other 2 with the remaining different shade,,. It doesnt say anything different on the packaging and you would have to be very keen eyed to see the difference when they are in their packaging in the shop, so the only way you are likely to get a matching colour is to try and get all you need for your job in one go and hope that you would be getting the same batch...
also please note that although this item is easy to work with and easily cut it is also easily damaged and dented and will crack if dropped...

Quick and effective wall cladding
"I have just used this to clad an en suite and it's brilliant. Easy to cut with a stanley knife especially length ways but be carefull cutting across the width as it does tend to give a slightly jaggered edge because of the inside supports. If you are finishing off with a line of sealant then it won't really matter.
Be careful when making holes in it (perhaps for a pipe or cable) as it can split. Not a problem if your also fitting a plastic pipe cover to hide the hole.
All in all a it did a nice job and the wifes very pleased.

2nd time around!
"This is the 2nd time I've used this product, it is easy to fix, looks good and provides an easy clean surface. On the down side, I echo a previous comment, there can be differing shades that cannot be identified until the packs are opened. A batch or colour code number at production would easily solve this, as it does with standard ceramic tiles etc.
Also, it's easy to damage if you are not careful cutting & fitting or applying fittings to the wall after installation. I have found that (carefully) cutting out a section and fitting a 'backplate' of hard PVC behind the fitting, the same thickness as this cladding makes a good solution, albeit a little fiddly.
Tip: Using a good quality, new 'stanly' knife blade when cutting this material produces a reasonable result.
Overall a good product if care is taken on install.

pvcu bathroom cladding
"I purchased this cladding and all accessories the cladding its self is very thin and brittle it snaps very easy you have to be careful and watch what you are doing when cutting it to size the jointing is not very good and tou have to push hard to try and get them to meetand make a good joint make sure if you purchase it use silicone between joints I dont think it is worth the price tag."

Shorter lengths please!
"Cant fault this product, brilliant. however, bought one shorter pack as a trial, went back to get more only to find they no longer seem to sell the shorter lengths. Creates big problems when one only owns a yaris! The longer packs cant even be cut down as they would be too short then! PLEASE BRING BACK SHORTER PACKS!"

Care needed
"Easy to cut to size and apply glue but care needed not to press to hard against the surface when slotting into place as it is only a light PVC honeycomb construction. More expensive type panels are made with MDF. It will also indent if fittings screwed through it are tightened too hard."
