Following significant product development, waterproof bathroom and kitchen wall panel manufacturer, Fibo, has increased its product warranty to an industry leading 25-years across its entire range, underpinning the quality and performance of its panels as a true alternative to tiling.
An industry first, Fibo’s leading 25-year guarantee applies to Fibo’s entire range of precision-engineered waterproof wall panels - a true alternative to tiling - and certifies that its wall panel and kitchen boards will not delaminate, stain, fade or crack as a result of defects of its materials or manufacturing methods.
The announcement comes following stringent testing and approvals to meet the strict criteria required for Scandinavian wet room approval, further strengthening its ongoing commitment to quality and innovation.
Designed and manufactured in Norway – the home of wood technology and Scandinavian styling, Fibo’s wall panel system, when correctly installed with an appropriate sealant, is 100% waterproof. Made using high quality plywood core panels, bonded with high pressure laminates, the panels are installed with a discrete, patented tongue and groove locking system ‘Aqualock’, that ensures a secure and virtually invisible joint between panels that can withstand both direct water spray and large temperature fluctuations, completely replacing the need for tiles.
Scott Beattie, Managing Director at Fibo commented: “We are thrilled to be the only manufacturer of wall panels in the UK to offer a warranty of this kind so that our customers can continue to purchase with confidence and peace of mind. Fibo’s continued commitment to product innovation and manufacturing means our products are simple and quick to install, and are now backed with an industry leading warranty, so the question really is; ‘why tile?’”
The company already boasts PEFC certification – a set of standards that promotes sustainable forest management, and its panels are Class 2 Spread of Flame certification tested according to BS 476-7: 1987, as a minimum, with selected panels in the Fibo range, Class 1 fire rated.
Fibo’s 25-year warranty is available as standard on purchases of all new panels from 1st September 2020 and stipulates that products must be installed in accordance with Fibo’s installation instructions and cared for in accordance with Fibo’s instructions for “Cleaning and Maintenance”.
