No matter whether it is a private house or a commercial building, to enhance the beauty of the building owners prefer the use of stones.

Apart from domestic and corporate use, the stone and log for log walls is also used in the buildings where the architecture plays a key role in the business like restaurants, showrooms and heritage hotels.

Below are 6 major reasons of the growing popularity of stones in construction of buildings:


Stone is a long lasting material that will maintain its charm through decades unlike paint or vitrified tiles that have a life of 2-3 years. Stone does not show apparent effects of ageing .Its surface is rugged so it doesn’t catch the dust easily or apparently shows the effects of the same. You can go for the brick wall.

For Long time stones can remain intact

Maximum historical buildings have employed an extensive use of stone and from centuries they have been standing intact. The walls of old forts were almost totally made of stones.

During that time not only did they provide an efficient protection from the intruders but till today these walls and forts are not affected by the extremities of weather and effects of time. The print walls are in demand in commercial sectors.


Stone Cladding

Over a period of time the dry cladding of stone provides a complete protection against stone falling off. Contraction and expansion of stone occurs due to change in temperature that also affects its grip. Many businesses offer fast renovation.

When the stones grip is weakened the sand, water and moisture start seeping into the cement joints and ultimately it falls off the wall. Especially if the stone is clad on building façade, it can be extremely detrimental and can result in fatal accident.

Negligible Maintenance

It not only offers a unique, eye caressing look to the entire building and shower wall, but it also requires negligible care and maintenance. Easily they do not get smudged or stained. Due to these features the stone's surface provides a sufficient protection. The rust metal wall panels are mostly used in every building.

Brief Description of Bathroom Wall Panels

As we know that bathroom wall panels are water proof panels but what we may not know is that they are generally manufactured using thermoplastics, which is also known as UPVC, although there are some panels that  may be manufactured from Medite Exterior grade medium density fiberboard, which is more commonly known as MDF.

Many UPVC bathroom rust metal wall panels are manufactured with two outer walls (front & back) and a honeycombed interior, which is required for good rigidity and keeping the panel flat.

Using a tongue and groove system they are joined together, depending on the style of panels, and this makes sure that each panel is locked together, thus making a more watertight and rigid joint. The joint between the panels can then be made more secure by applying a bead of silicone, and this is only recommended when a power shower or high pressure shower is installed.

As these panels are manufactured using either UPVC or Laminated MDF, they are quite easy to keep clean, and are extremely resistant to most chemical cleaners such as bleach products. It is highly recommended and necessary to use a wet soapy soft cloth, as this will be sufficient for most cleaning requirements for brick wall.


In various designs and colors, the bathroom wall panels are available, which will suit any bathroom improvement requirements and some of these styles can include:

  • Marble effect
  • Wood grain effect
  • Mosaic effect
  • Plain colors

You can also compliment these shower wall panels with ceiling panels, and help to give that extra finished look.

UPVC and laminated wall panels are quite easy and quick. Installation can be applied in different ways, some of which are:

  • Self-adhesive
  • Screw fixed
  • Adhesive

Installation may be supplied and fitted by the supplier or can be carried out by the purchaser and all installed panels can be finished with a matching trim on the top and bottom edges.

There are many panel systems available in kit form, and with the installation an accomplished DIY enthusiast should have no problem. You will get most bathroom panels or panel systems with a 10 to 15 year guarantee, although this depends on the system purchased and the quality and may vary.
