marlene9395,

Seamless, not fiberglass, no insert, not tile? So what do you want? you pretty much wiped out any suggestion that I or anyone else could offer.

So take a look at these links but you may want to do a search as well. You may say no to all but I at least tried to offer something.

I assume that you do not want to replace the bathtub as well although your request could be done with no problem. Options would then be Lasco, IMHO.

Hope this helps!

thank you for responding

i realize its sounds crazy but what i am looking for is a shower panel that comes in 5 foot sections and i figure somebody must sell them .i have already a 3 piece surround but would like to change to the panel to open it up a bit.i have heard that you can buy the panels that are 5 feet so that there is no seam anywhere on the long wall.i will absolutely try those sites and thank you for replying .p.s the tub is cast iron.thanks again,marlene9395

They sell vinyl surrounds that come in one piece. This just wraps around the wall and I believe it comes in 11 or 12 foot sections. It's kinda like putting a viyle floor on the wall of your tub.

If you are talking about the wood paneling that is "waterproof" it isn't.
though it does make for a temporary solution when your ceramic tiled wall
pushes in and you find out previous owners put tile on drywall with mastic.
The panels will eventually start to swell due to moisture. They lasted 1-1/2 years for us
and long enough for us to begin the "Master Bath Project, 2005" woo!
