Sydenhams, an independent builders’ merchant which has supplied timber and building materials across the South of England since 1874, has commended Fibo wall panels for kitchens and bathrooms as a ‘first choice for customers’ over traditional tiles.
Sydenhams has been selling Fibo panels across its five showrooms since the 1980s, with Fibo displayed on the walls of the recently refitted Bournemouth and Salisbury branches, and display stands in the other three.
The builders’ merchant recently supplied Fibo wall panels for a toilet block refurbishment at a luxury caravan holiday park in the New Forest. Scheduled for completion in July, the project will see the installation of dedicated family shower rooms and baby changing facilities.
Andy Morris, Sydenhams Group Showroom Manager says: “Fibo wall panels look great and they are extremely easy to fit and keep clean.
“The biggest advantage with wall panels is that, unlike traditional bathroom tiles, the grout lines do not discolour or break down over time. There’s a wide range of high-quality textures and finishes available so there’s something to suit the style and theme of most bathrooms, traditional or modern.
“Customers want products that are going to last and stay looking good – which is what Fibo delivers. And their 15 year guarantee reassures customers that they’ve bought a quality product.
“Wall panels are also easy to install. There’s no need to remove old tiles – panels can be fitted over existing tiles, or directly to the walls or stud partitioning. Our installer customers love it – they can complete the job quickly, without having to sub-contract tiling, saving lots of time.”
