Plastic skirting for a bathtub will save your money, add aesthetics to the design and, at the same time, protect the joints from moisture and, as a result, from the formation of mold fungi. In addition to the ease of use and the presence of a soft rubber band, which overlaps the seams between the tiles, the skirting is highly hygienic, since it does not provide an environment for the bacteria's reproduction.
The main purpose of the bathtub border skirting is to prevent moisture in joint seams. Whatever the grout quality, there is still a certain risk of water seepage.
The border skirting has two types of fastening, however the chosen method does not affect the appearance of the accessory. It directly affects the skirting installation stage.
The 'under the tile' bathtub skirting is fixed during the laying of tiles, since the tile is placed on top of its fixation spots on the wall. The 'upon the tile' option provides for fastening on top of the already laid tile. This option is convenient for implementation after completion of the repair works at any stage of use of the premises. Due to the compact size the border skirting can be used for sinks with narrow edges.
Skirting length – 1,8 m.
The bathtub border skirting is installed during the laying of tiles, since the tile is placed on top of the profile.
The upon-tile border skirting is used in case the wall is already finished with tiles.
This skirting ideally fits both the bathtubs, and the kitchen counter tops. The extended bottom part is fastened to the joint between the wall and the edge of the bathtub or counter top. This profile is accompanied with a set of accessories, including 2 inner corners and a pair of end plugs.
