Broxtowe Borough Council installs Fibo wall panels to support dementia care

  • 18 Jul 2018

Broxtowe Borough Council recently fitted Fibo wall panels in a retirement living scheme to make a bathroom more suitable for individuals with dementia.

As recommended for this type of installation, two contrasting colours were specified. 

Howard Draper, from Broxtowe Borough Council, commented: “This was the first time we had used panels as an alternative to tiles and we are very pleased with the outcome. The panels were quick and easy to fit, and excellent from a maintenance point of view.”

Fibo’s unique Aqualock system means the wall panels can be installed up to five times faster than tiles.

The simple tongue-and-groove system means tilers are not required, saving further time and cost.

The panels can also be fitted directly onto existing tiles or stud partitioning, meaning less disruption to social housing residents.

In addition, there’s no grout line to attract mould and the panels are low maintenance, only requiring a quick wipe down to stay clean, which is a further benefit for vulnerable residents in particular.

Howard was full of praise for the company: “Fibo supported us throughout the project and was absolutely superb. Any queries were dealt with on the spot and with professionalism. We would definitely use the panels again.”
