									a splash
of inspiration
Refurbishing your bathroom isn’t something you do every day.
So, choosing a finish that will last for a number of years
is important.

Mermaid – the ultimate waterproof wall panel system – is the
only inspiration you need for a wall covering that is stylish,
practical and will stand the test of time. This attractive
alternative to tiles will provide a definitive look and feel for your
bathroom or shower.

Relax in a haven inspired by the soft warm tones of the
Coastal colours. Give yourself a kick-start in the morning amid
the refreshing greens and blues of the Tropical range. Create
a modern look with the design-led Metropolitan and Techno
designs, or how about achieving a distinctive finish with the
innovative Mists?

Whatever your preference, there is a colour or design to suit
in the extensive Mermaid collection. All of the panels are
manufactured to the highest quality. No grouting means
that they only need a wipe over with a cloth or squeegee
to maintain a pristine appearance. A ten-year watertight
guarantee also provides ultimate peace of mind.

Your Mermaid dealer will be happy to advise you what to
order to suit your particular room. They will also be pleased to
show you laminate samples in A4 size or on large boards if
available. You will then be able to see the real beauty of the
decors. Alternatively, contact the Mermaid Sample
Hotline on 01472 240832.
    Embrace city living or develop a rural retreat with a panel
    from the Metropolitan range.

    The hot design of Firecoat and the striking effect of Nebula
    are the latest additions to this popular collection. The eclectic
    mix of vibrant and stylish tones provides a luxurious finish,
    which will help to create a room to suit your lifestyle.

    Be enchanted by the indulgent reds and metallic of
    Carnelian Gold, be captured by the structured surface of
    contemporary Slate, or introduce your room to the timeless
    elegance of Luna and Glacier White. Whatever the colour,
    the Metropolitan range will give your room a joie de vivre that
    you will struggle to find with any other wall covering.

Soothe the stresses and strains of everyday life in a bathroom
transformed by the Coastal collection.

These soft, warm and calming colours have stood the test
of time and are reminiscent of long days spent lazing on
the beach. The complete range has been designed to help
you create a tranquil space that will provide every ounce of
relaxation you will ever need.

Perfect for complete bathrooms, bath-sides or simple shower
enclosures, the Coastal collection is best viewed on large
boards in a showroom. Each panel has been designed to
complement a wide range of colour schemes.

If you need more space for storage and toiletries, the strong
panel construction means that shelves and other fittings can
easily be fixed.

A quick wipe over with the Mermaid E-cloth will help to
maintain your panels in pristine condition and keep your new
sanctuary sparkling.

The Techno range will help you create a sophisticated,
design-led finish whatever the size of your room.

Contemporary, eye-catching Pixels are available in Bronze,
Pearl and Silver, and have a modern, glimmering effect. The
three-dimensional colour will be brought to life by the light
in your room and will change naturally throughout the day.
The different Pixels work well together, and can also be used
separately to match a wide range of other wall finishes,
fixtures and fittings.

Fashionable metallics push the boundaries of modern
design. From the contemporary Concrete to the rich tones of
Ferrite, these panels can help you to make a statement. They
suit every extreme, from a small shower enclosure to a full
lavish, walk-in wet area, and will work with modern and ornate
interior designs.

Whatever Techno decor you select, you can cover a large
area in a fraction of the time it would take to tile, and without
the mess!

Create your own oasis with the Mermaid Tropical range. It will
leave you feeling as though you’ve just stepped out of a spa.

The selection of exotic colours will rejuvenate your senses and
leave you refreshed every time you leave your bathroom or
shower. The collection of tropical blues and greens evokes
memories of rainforests, waterfalls and lagoons, and will inject
you with a feeling of excitement and invigoration.

Ideal for helping you to create an experience rather than
just another room, the high performance of Mermaid panels
makes them perfect for shower enclosures and can be
combined with a wide selection of tiles.

The unique two-part ‘Click-Seal’ profile system ensures a
watertight corner and can be colour-coordinated to suit
the finish you choose. One wipe with a squeegee and your
panels will look as good as new.

awarded NBI Technical Approval No 2294 for use in wet
areas. In addition to being attractive and easy to maintain,
they also offer many other advantages to the installer and
consumers alike.

Mermaid panels are made of 9mm water-resistant WBP
plywood. This is bonded with a decorative high pressure
laminate which results in a 100% waterproof surface. There is
also a balancer laminate to the reverse.

Are they easy to install?                                                 Mermaid panels can be used for two- or three-sided

A specialist fitter isn’t required. Mermaid panels can be
installed by a competent trades person.

Large wall surfaces can be covered in a fraction of the
time it would take to tile the same area. All of the Mermaid
panels are manufactured in three sizes, except for the Mist
collection which is only available in 1200mm-wide panels.
They are supplied as easy-to-order kits, including all the
required profiles, colour sealants and accessories.

correctly – they will last for many years.
