Fibo launches free trial for social housing sector

Fibo, the leading manufacturer of tile-effect waterproof wall panels, is giving housing associations the chance to trial its wall panel system for FREE.

For many years, tiles have been the go-to solution for bathroom installations and renovations, despite wall panels being the optimal solution. Recognising this, Fibo is offering private and public housing associations the chance to trial its range of waterproof wall panels for free on a bathroom project.

The trial will enable both housing associations and their tenants to benefit from the many advantages the wall panel system offers. From an installation perspective, Fibo’s wall panels are five times faster to install than tiles, as they can be fitted directly over existing tiles (ideal for bathroom renovations and adaptations), plasterboard and studwork, and with only standard carpentry tools required – enabling housing providers to complete more bathroom renovations in a shorter period of time. What’s more, with its Aqualock tongue and groove system, you can be sure of a waterproof, secure join every time!

For tenants, they are provided with a bathroom that is long-lasting, easy to maintain, and contemporary in design. In fact, Fibo can offer panels that feature routered ‘grout lines’ to create the traditional look and feel of tiles. As the panels do not require grouting, it means the wall panels are more hygienic and easier to clean - maintaining their ‘new’ look for longer and offering further benefits to the tenant.

Manufactured from multiple layers of high-quality plywood and a high-pressure laminate, all of Fibo’s wall panels are durable; have been certified as anti-bacterial and are available with a 25-year guarantee.

Scott Beattie, Managing Director at Fibo commented: “Our wall panels are helping housing associations to save time and money all across the UK, but we want more associations to reap the benefits, which is why we are offering new customers the ability to trial our wall panel system for free!

“Not only are they quick and easy to install, but they are also available in a wide range of contemporary colours, decors and tile-effects to help create beautiful bathroom spaces for tenants to enjoy – even on a budget!”

Fibo will be exhibiting its range of waterproof wall panels at CIH 2022 on Stand B20 and will be telling all visitors to its stand about its latest free trial scheme.
