Most bath panels are either made from moisture resistant MDF, water resistant MDF or Acrylic in various thicknesses and some colours. They are also available in contemporary or traditional style. Some people choose to use a tile backer material and fit ceramic tiles to colour coordinate with the bathroom wall tiles.
Halite Bath Panels: Unlike wooden bathroom products, Halite is 100% water resistant. When a wood based material like MDF is used, the surface is painted but over time the paint has a tendency to crack. Without its protective covering the MDF core quickly absorbs moisture causing swelling and softening. Halite is much lighter in weight than MDF.
