Wallpanels are an absolute innovation in the cover and decoration industry. They are real works of art and design and they will be part of your public and private spaces from today onwards. The panels are made of polyethylene and aluminum, they are waterproofed and printed. They have a thickness of 3 mm. and are protected in order to be heat-, pressure-, humidity-, water- and detergents-resistant. They are light-weight and easy to be cut and perforated.
They can be stuck with two-component epoxy adhesive as any type of covering. The maximum size of one piece is cm.200x305, but we can join more panels or cut them to size, in order to fit perfectly with your spaces. Both sides of panel are printable. They have shiny finishes.
We are able to furnish your indoor or outdoor walls with uniqueness, garnishing your environment with attracting images. The panels are fully customizable with your own pictures or chosen in our databases with 30 millions of images: every customer can select the subject, the colours (RAL) and the sizes which suit his environment and based on his budget.

“Wallpanels” range: water-, humidity- and detergent-resistant; suitable to be used as wall covering in bathrooms or shower-boxes. Printable on one or both sides. Shiny finishing.
Handling the PANELS
The average weight of the Wallpanels is 2.7 Kg/sqm, so they can be easily carried manually; however, we recommend complying with the following instructions for cutting and perforating Wallpanels is lightweight and easy to handle, therefore easy to cut and perforate.
To cut Wallpanels you can use the same tools and machinery Utilized for cutting wood (e.g. circular or radial saws, jigsaws water jet cutters). To perform accurate or complex shaped cuts, we recommend using the PANTOGRAPH.
To perforate the Wallpanels , if the holes to obtain have a diameter exceeding 8 mm. we recommend using hollow cutters mounted on a drill or grinder.
In case of holes with diameter lower than 8 mm, the manual perforation can be carried out with iron tips. We recommend not perforating close to the edges. For holes performed on site, the area around the hole must be sealed when installing.
We recommend not using the drill to perforate sheets and to pay attention to their corners, which must be protected with special plastic angular, during every handling phase.
Instructions for installation
Wallpanels is perfect for installation on existing coatings and allows renovating the environments without demolitions, reducing time and discomfort typical of renovations.
Wallpanels can be used to cover internal walls in homes, offices and public buildings and they can be installed on the same kind of support on which tiles with standard thickness can be applied (on concrete coatings, stone material, metal, existing ceramic, expanded concrete block masonry). Specifically, the thin and light weight make Wallpanels the ideal product for installation on existing coating, without the need to demolish, and for coating walls that require less increase of weight on the surface (installation on concrete or wooden agglomerate panels).
Instructions for installation on new walls
For installation on new walls, we recommend to ensure that the bottom is compact, free from cracks and dry. Before installing, ensure also that the maturation shrinkage is complete; verify that the wall is levelled (level if required) and clean the surface to be installed.
Instruction for installation on existing coating
Before installing, ensure that the existing coating is perfectly dry and correctly fastened. Even if only partially, cracked or detached tiles must be removed; the resulting spaces must be filled with appropriate concrete products.
- As glue, use adhesive for porcelain tiles (i.e. “Mapei Kerapoxy” Adhesive), ”SIGILFLEX” elasticizing admixture for swimming pools, or any two-component epoxy adhesive with the same features;
- Full spread the adhesive on the surface to be covered. As panels are thin, in order to prevent the glue from leaking from the joints, the adhesive must be spread using a spatula with inclined teeth or with 4-6 mm teeth.
- Install Wallpanels panels ensuring that the adhesive on the surface to be covered is enough to full cover the sheet rear.
- Press the sheet using a rubber spatula and evenly beat the surface of the panels installed to make the product fully adhere and prevent any void or air bubbles.
- We recommend positioning some paper tape on the external perimeter of the panels at least for 24 hours.
- Use a spatula with 3 mm teeth also on the tile rear.
- Ensure the complete glue filling between support and tile to prevent voids that can weaken the tiled surface.
Joints and sealing
When installing, we recommend using our seal between one panel and the other, always without joints. To optimize the impermeability of the product, we recommend plastering the external perimeter using our transparent polyurethane seal or similar silicone.
Ordinary maintenance of WALLPANELS does not require special operations, except the use of water and neutral detergents (use anti-static cloths). For ordinary cleaning, we recommend not using wax products or oily soaps. For evident or difficult stains, more aggressive detergents can be used, diluted according to the type of dirt to be removed, complying with the instructions indicated on the package. In case of surface scratches, they can be restored by simply using polish paste.
