FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE SHIMMERWALLS
A system of decorative panels with sequins that are on tiny hooks that hang freely so can be activated and shimmer when moved by air.
The basis of the click panel is made from a durable polymer material, with a lattice effect. There are mounting holes built into the panel for easy fixing to walls, and this panel is very flexible and light weight.
Unlike the click panels the solid panel are made from a thicker and heavier polymer material that is solid with moulding holes and built to withstand harsher environments such as indoor / outdoor use.
The sequins come in two shapes, circle or square and are made from a polymer material with a mirror coating. For outdoor use we also have UV resistant based sequins to ensure the lasting colour.
Shimmerwalls Australia offers a selection of more than 20 colours. You can learn more about color the "product colors" section.
We can also apply any image you like on the sequins.
HOW TO INSTALL
Each Shimmerwall panel has a large number of mounting holes. These holes are arrange so if you nail or screw into place the sequins should cover it up the nail or screw.
The panel can also be fixed to surfaces with double sided adhesive tape, self tapping screws or nails.
Our click panels have along the edges coupling elements that allow you to simply click the panels together and form a rigid group of panels. These can then be attached to pipe and drape set simply with cable ties. This advantage is that they are very helpful when using for temporarily displays, events, ceremonies, decoration. for special actions or events, ceremonies, decoration of stages and shop windows.
CAN SHIMMERWALLS WITHSTAND HARSH WEATHER
Shimmerwall outdoor solid panels can resist harsh weather conditions as strong winds, high temperature and UV Rays. They have high resistance to variations of temperatures from -20 to +50oC and wind gusting 25m/sec as well as rain and UV rays from the sun for up to 2 years.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE IN INDOOR AND OUTDOOR PANELS
The indoor and outdoor panels are the same backing panel. The difference is with the sequins. The outdoor panels consist of UV protected sequins, to reduce colour fade.

HOW DO I CLEAN MY PANELS
Using a static brush. Those lovely microfibre static brushes work a treat to remove any unwanted dust.
For a tough clean it is ok to use a medium pressure hose with just water and a gentle sponge for those sticky bits. You will need to dry them so they don't leave dots. If you get dots, you need to use stainless steel cleaner, like Magic Stainless steel cleaner and pro
