There’s antibacterial finishes, and glass designs available in the Mermaid shower panels portfolio. Easier to fit than tiles, with no grouting required, and less messy, they don’t need a specialist installer and can be cut to size on site, as well as fitted over virtually any existing surface. Moisture and humidity doesn’t affect acrylic, glass, laminate, or composite Mermaid bathroom panels and therefore the possibility of mildew or mould creeping in is eliminated.
