Fibo UK will display their new on-trend wall-panel designs on Stand B22 at Housing 2019, taking place at Manchester Central, from 25 – 27 June.
The new designs give councils and housing associations a much wider choice of options to transform bathroom and kitchen walls, quickly and cost-effectively.
Fibo’s Class 1 fire rated panels will also be on display, ideal for projects that require a higher performance level. Five times quicker to fit than tiles, Fibo’s panels come with a 15-year guarantee and are used nationwide in new build and refurb projects for social housing, retirement homes and sheltered accommodation. Free no obligation trials are available for social landlords.
Scott Beattie, Managing Director of Fibo, commented: “In the past couple of years we’ve seen demand from housing associations and local authorities increase significantly.
“A number of social landlords have mentioned hygiene, health and maintenance issues with traditional ceramic tiling as the factors behind their decision to switch to our waterproof panel system.
“But design plays a part too, which is why we’re delighted to launch our new ranges at the show, complemented by our new accessories, which help contractors achieve a perfect finish.
“Landlords can offer residents a choice of panel finishes and colours that would look good in any bathroom or kitchen – with no compromise on quality or durability.
“And because they’re so quick to fit, and you don’t have to wait to source a tiler, there’s less disruption for residents too.”
