Fibo UK will be showcasing its innovative range of bathroom and kitchen wall panels at Housing 2018 at Manchester Central 26-28 June. The annual show and conference is the largest of its kind, welcoming around 11,000 people each year. These include housing associations, local authorities, housebuilders and contractors.
Managing Director Scott Beattie, comments,
“Housing 2018 is the perfect opportunity for us to exhibit our unique bathroom, kitchen and wet room wall panels to our target market. We understand how important it is for councils, housing associations and their residents to have confidence in the quality of products used to refurbish their properties. While value for money may be a key criteria, that doesn’t mean the cheapest. Visitors at the show are looking for innovative and cost-effective solutions for their projects and we’re confident that our high-quality wall panels will exceed expectations.”
With a unique 15-year guarantee, Fibo’s wall panels are a real alternative to ceramic tiling for social housing, retirement homes and sheltered accommodation. The panels can be fitted directly onto walls, stud partitioning or over existing tiles. Fibo’s patented Aqualock tongue-and-groove system means the panels simply click into place, making them quick and easy to install – up to five times faster than traditional tiles – so contractors don’t need to sub-contract the job to tilers, saving further time and money.
Specific installation skills aren’t needed as the panels are fixed with screws and then finished with sealant between the joins. There’s also a wide range of colours and finishes so both local authorities and residents get the choice they want with peace of mind. And no grouting means there’s nowhere for mould or dirt to get a foothold, so the panels are easy to keep clean and fresh – a quick wipe down will do.
“Fibo wall panels are the perfect choice for those wanting a high-quality finish to their bathroom or kitchen, without the hassle of tiling. As they are quick to install and can be retro-fitted, they’re particularly suited to large-scale coverage or where a speedy turnaround is needed, making them ideal for housing refurbishment projects.”
