A solution for bathrooms sure to turn heads as much for its beauty as its ability to solve tough problems, Fibo Wall Panels are now available in the United States through a partnership between Innovate Building Solutions and FiboUSA. Builders, developers, designers, architects, remodelers and do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) can solve tough wet room challenges with Fibo Wall Panels. These panels are perfect for bathrooms, showers, laundry rooms and kitchens.
This contemporary high-pressure laminate panel is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. While Fibo Wall Panels are able to meet the heavy demands placed on public buildings, apartments and condominiums, they also satisfy the design needs of a homeowner renovating a small bathroom.
“Fibo Wall Panels are the perfect solution for kitchen, bathrooms and high-impact public areas, and the quality of this product speaks for itself,” Innovate Building Solutions President Mike Foti said. “Fibo Wall Panels come in a variety of high-fashion styles, and because grout isn’t needed for installation, the cleaning hassles which come with tile are eliminated. In fact, they are so easy to clean that warm water and a clean cloth or a non-abrasive detergent is all that is required! This makes them a perfect solution for commercial and residential applications.”
Ease of installation is a draw for both contractors and homeowners. Installation of the wall system is five times faster than tile, and can be fitted directly onto wood or steel studs or even existing walls. Backer boards, membrane, glue and grout are not necessary. The 2’ x 8’ x 3/8” thick panels simply click, lock and seal together like tongue and groove panels and one person can install them. An added guarantee for DIYers, remodelers and contractors is Fibo’s 15-year warranty.
The cost effective product is hygienic and instantly waterproof. Best of all, it comes in a wide variety of styles and colors. Use these panels in styles as varied as Mid-Century Modern, to Traditional, to Minimalist to Modern Farmhouse bathrooms. The Fibo collection incorporates the latest trends in tile designs, finishes and interior surfaces for walls including shabby chic, cracked cement, wood grain, tile and more. These large-format faux tile designs are available in a wide range of modern sizes – 24” x 12”, 24” x 18”, 24” x 24” and 12” x 16”.
