Hi there, yes you can cut a panel down in height if the panel is tight. I have done this many times when the floor tiles are down. I personally use an oscillating saw, which has a very fine tooth blades and leaves a clean edge. The cut off part of the bath I then glue onto the bottom of the panel( on the inside) to strengthen the panel back up. Use a new fine tooth saw, or if you are confident a grinder with a tile blade on it and you will get a uniform cut without shattering the plastic.

Hi, Yes it can, I did one for a mate. You have to do it a little at a time, with a very sharp knife. it took quite some time but a good result.
Hope this helps

yes. Not ideal and usually avoidable if the bath has been installed at the correct height but it can be done. kevin.

Hi In my experience the p shaped panel has a lip alround to keep the acrylic in the right shape, its critical that the floor and the bath are level before the panel is fitted if there is a slope then it will not stay in position, it pings out. so I would not cut down the panel as it is more likely to crack in the wrong place when trying to cut it down

Really you should not be cutting a panel down in height you should be adjusting the legs on the bath to the correct height to accept the panel.
