Various bathtubs require bath panels of different sizes. Most commonly, front panels will measure 59 inches, 63 inches, 67 inches or 71 inches. For end panels, 27.5 inches, 29.5 inches and 31.5 inches are the most popular sizes. Panels of these sizes will tend to fit most installations, with 67-inch options especially prominent in American homes.
It is usually possible to adjust the height of freestanding bathtubs, via the application of the included bath legs. However, if you are replacing a panel and can’t alter the height of the bathtub due to pipework and tiles, you’ll need to assess the height of the tub panel carefully, as each manufacturer constructs them at contrasting heights.
The majority of panels are manufactured as a single piece, making them non-adjustable and of a fixed height. Two-piece bath panels incorporate a panel at a fixed height and a separate plinth installed behind or in front of the main panel to the necessary height. This type of panel is perfect for sloping floors.
