    Roman, the UK’s leading shower manufacturer and designer, has crafted the ultimate in minimalist design by creating a wetroom panel which appears to be completely frameless.The Sculptures Corner Panel with Concealed Profile is designed so the profile is completely recessed into the wall and only the glass is visible, which makes the panel appear to float. This new statement piece design is the latest addition to Roman’s luxury Sculptures collection of enclosures.

    Roman’s team of designers have engineered the profile so it can be fitted into a wall cavity, which is created by the installer, the wall tiles then go under the lips of the profile for a seamless finish that eliminates the need to grout. To ensure a strong and sturdy finish, the panel comes complete with a recessed floor profile which is channelled into the floor in the same way.

    For those customers who don’t want to renovate their entire bathroom, Roman’s team of designers have also come up with an alternative solution, which still offers a minimalist look, but allows for a quick and easy retro-fit. The Sculptures Corner Panel with Exposed Profile is surface mounted onto the tiles, therefore the walls and floor no longer need to be channelled out and the existing tiles stay intact, but only the smallest amount of profile is visible.

    By still including a wall profile, whether it is fully concealed in a wall channel, or a small amount is visible like on the exposed version, this gives an allowance for out of true walls. The concealed version allows 18mm of vertical adjustment and the exposed version offers 10mm.

    Both versions of the wetroom panel feature 10mm thick toughened safety glass and stand at a height of 1950mm high. They are available in a range of sizing options; 800, 900, 1000 and 1200mm wide. Alongside this you can choose a completely straight wetroom panel or an ‘L’ shaped version which has a 200mm wide return panel for added water integrity.

    Like all Roman enclosures and bath screens they are backed by Roman’s Truelife, Lifetime Guarantee which is a service backed guarantee for complete peace of mind.

    Julian Pearson, Commercial Director at Roman, commented: “Our wetroom panels have continually been a strong seller, particularly at the top end of the market where minimalism is so important. Many of our customers want products where only the glass is visible and the metal profiles are completely eliminated, however installing a sheet of glass with no profiles is just not an option for most people as the walls would need to be perfectly vertical. That is why we have engineered this new profile which can be recessed into the wall, so it appears there is no framing, whilst it is still practical for installation in the UK bathroom. It was also important for us to offer something as near frameless as possible for when only a quick retro fit is required – therefore the exposed version of the profile was created.”
