For horizontal installation, the docking groove must face down. This condition will protect the structure from moisture penetration under the finishing material.
Cutting the shower panel is recommended by the grinder.
When coating any base, don’t forget about the need for an upper and lower gap of about 7 mm for natural air circulation. This will protect the wall from accumulating condensate on it.
