Fibo wall panels have recently been chosen to clad the whole interior of a new build nursery in Chiseldon, Swindon.
Fibo’s wall panels provide a watertight system that is suitable for bathrooms, kitchens and as a decorative wipe-clean wall surface.
Made from laminated birch, the tongue-and-groove Aqualock design makes the panels quick and easy to fit. In addition, the project was made even easier as the panels eliminate the need for plasterboard, dry-liners, decorators and tilers.
A range of Fibo panels in different colours and designs were fitted throughout all seven rooms of the nursery.
Paul Foggoa, Construction Manager of Swindon Borough Council, comments on the job: “This was the first time we’d used wall panels. The Architecture and Construction Management team within Swindon Borough Council found Fibo via the website and it was agreed that the system suited the project really well. The panels are great for the environment, clean and durable and low maintenance too. The installation was quick and easy so it ticked all the boxes.”
The panels come with a market-leading 15-year guarantee and provide a high quality, long lasting surface. It’s every bit as effective as a tiled one, but without the disadvantages – no grouting to clean and replace, no mould growth, low maintenance, shorter installation time and lower fitting costs.
There are now plans for the panels to be used for the refurbishment of the main building at Chiseldon Primary School, due to the success of the installment at the nursery.
