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 switch from traditional tiling to installing Fibo waterproof wall panels in their bathrooms has allowed Places for People, one of the UK’s largest property management companies, to improve its installation rate by up to 133%. Providing tenants with a hygienic and maintenance-free finish.
The organisation owns or manages 182,725 homes and provides services to over 500,000 people. Its affordable and social housing properties, which include sheltered accommodation developments, are usually tenanted so finding a bathroom solution that would improve installation efficiency was crucial.
The PanelStyle PVC wall and ceiling panelling collection offers a cost effective and practical alternative to paint, wallpaper and tiles.
With a total of 50 decors across four easy-to-fit ranges of Splashpanel, Splashpanel Narrow, Proplas and Proplas Tile, PanelStyle provides a budget-friendly option to suit every wall and ceiling application in any room of the home.
AKW, one of the UK’s leading providers of accessibility solutions, has extended its popular Marlbrook wall panel range, offering installers and end users even more ways to create luxurious bathroom solutions that don’t compromise on style but are still cost-effective.
The Kingspan TEK Building System of structural insulated panels (SIPs) has been used to create a spectacular, cantilevered self-build in Oxfordshire, achieving excellent airtightness and energy efficiency with a fast-track build programme.
Homeowner, Daniel Frazer, identified timber frame as his preferred construction method at the outset of the project due to its speed of build and ability to be constructed in most weather conditions. Following discussions with Greenspace Architects and Kingspan TEK Delivery Partners, Point 1 Building Systems, he finally settled on the Kingspan TEK Building System. “I was attracted to SIPs due to their air-tightness and even faster erection speed,” Daniel commented. “I particularly liked the ability to have a roof fabricated from the panels.”
