This may well be the easiest method of creating focus in any space – 3D wall panels, made from a new type of polymerized composite material PVC, are fast gaining popularity as contemporary wall decoration. These panels consist of textured boards that can be joined together to create the effect of large, seamless sculpted walls. The three dimensional pattern creates a strong visual focal point and immediately directs the viewer’s attention to the plane being highlighted. Combined with appropriate lighting, 3D wall panels serve as an excellent choice for creating interesting surfaces that provide a break from monotonous, bare planes. They are also an easy way of adding a touch of luxury to any space.
Properties: Light weight, durable, moisture proof, fire resistant, easy installation
Usage: 3D PVC panels can be used in interiors and exteriors to accent any wall or surface. These are available in the form of white boards or panels that can be painted in any desired colour.
Installation: 3D panels are easy to install and do not require much skill. They can be glued to the surface using standard adhesives or can be screwed to wooden frames.
Disadvantages: PVC manufacturing, use and disposal causes a lot of environmental damage. Use of PVC also harms indoor air quality and poses health hazards.
