    Hi all. I am renovating a bathroom at mo and today while removing the tiles and boarding I have discovered what looks like corrugated wall sheets from cardboard. Anyone ever come across these before?

    Cheers

    Over the years as walls have moved I have changed it to studding and plasterboard.

    Kitchen rad is 600 x 1800 double , its bolted through the straw with 4 x 75 mm x 8 mm bolts with 40mm washers . Its a good job it wasnt a customers when I found the straw . Its called stamic , or something like that , strangely it didnt take off lol
