Ideal for use in bathrooms and kitchens, roomliner quickly transforms a room.
The panels are easy to install, require no grouting and can even be fixed over the top of existing tiles. This saves on valuable time, effort and money.
These low maintenance panels have a honeycombe centre which can provide some insulation making them far warmer to the touch than tiles. This is turn reduces the formation of condensation which, over time, can encourage mould growth.
roomliner wall panels are an easy to install alternative to tiles and transform a room in no time at all!
- easy to clean
- easy to install

Where to fit Roomliner…
■ To the walls and ceiling of any room in the house, office, factory or food preparation area. Includes shower cubicles (with power shower) and steam rooms up to 60ºC
■ To damp or damaged walls by fitting 38mm x 19mm battens horizontally at 400mm centres with screws into wall plugs, and a breathable membrane is recommended.
■ To a wall or ceiling with a clean flat surface using adhesive (no battening required)
■ To a wall or ceiling with existing ceramic tiles, using a moisture cure or solvent free adhesive (tiles do not have to be removed)
■ Roomliner can withstand temperatures up to 60ºC. It can be fitted behind hot water pipes and radiators and behind a gas or electric hob if a piece of heat resistant glass is installed between the product and the hob using 10mm spacers and mirror screws.
■ Check all boards are from the same batch to ensure uniform colour within a room.
■ Store flat and do not expose to direct sunlight/UV.
Boards fitted to flat, dry walls and ceilings
■ Select and fit trims required
■ Select the first panel and cut to length. Remember, if the last panel in the run is on a feature corner, you could remove more of the first panel in order to finish with a complete panel.
■ Painted surfaces should be suitably keyed before applying any adhesive.
■ Apply adhesive evenly to the surface of the wall, or rear of panel, in a zigzag pattern.
■ Starting from the left, fit the panel into the trim using a spirit level to ensure the panel is vertical.
■ Make sure the panel is securely bonded to the wall.
■ Mitre the front face of ceiling trims where necessary.
■ When fixing to tiled walls a neutral cure silicone or solvent free/moisture cure adhesive.
Panels fitted to Damp or Damaged Walls
■ Secure a breather membrane to the walls.
■ Fit wooden battens (38mm x 19mm) horizontally to the wall, at 400mm centres, using countersunk screws and wall plugs
■ Secure the trims to the battens at 400mm centres (max) with 4mm countersunk screws or 12mm staples.
■ Select the first panel and cut to length. Remember, if the last panel in the run is on a feature corner, you could remove more of the first board in order to finish with a complete board.
■ Secure each board with countersunk screws or 12mm staples.
■ Mitre the front face of ceiling trims where necessary
■ On corners either use the internal or external corner trim.
■ Do not mount load bearing accessories, eg. grab handles, directly on to panels. When mounting accessories on the wall, take up the depth of the panels with metal or wood spacers & seal with silicone.
■ In a shower area it is essential to apply a 3-5mm silicone bead to the rebate on the rear face of the panel to ensure complete protection against moisture.
■ Run a silicone bead around the edge of a bath or shower tray. Fit ends of panels down onto bead to seal.
■ Do not apply adhesive tape of any description (including masking tape) to the board surface.
■ When fitting traditional halogen ceiling lights or lights with a shroud, there should be a 10mm gap between the halogen bulb (max 35 watts) or shroud and the Roomliner panels. New “Low Energy” bulbs are also available to minimise the energy consumption of the unit.
NOTE: Experience has shown that “Fire Rated” (enclosed) downlighters should NOT be used with Roomliner.
■ If panels are fitted to a false ceiling or forms a false ceiling itself, there must be a large enough gap above the panels to allow the heat to disperse (minimum 4” /100mm). If this is not done the heat could distort the panels.
■ Apply a non-abrasive household cleaner with a soft cloth or sponge. DO NOT use neat bleach cleaner. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water
