The new name in bathroom
and wet room panels
Fibo, the European market leader in bathroom and wet room wall panels, has rebranded its UK division. Launched in the UK as Respatex in 1981, the recent rebrand aligns the business to its European name. Fibo has expanded rapidly in Europe and is capitalising on demand in the UK. Its growth is supported by a £14 million plant investment in its Norwegian factory and HQ to double capacity.
Fibo offers a modern and unique alternative to ceramic tiling. With its distinct design, Fibo bathroom and wet room wall panels are a stylish yet practical way of enhancing walls, from high-end domestic projects and hotels, to leisure centres and social housing. They are perfect for both refurbishment and new construction projects with panels fitted directly to existing walls, tiles or stud partitioning. Fibo’s unique Aqualock system means that the wall panels are quick and easy to install – up to five times faster than traditional tiles. The simple tongue-and-groove system means that contractors don’t need to sub-contract the job to tilers, saving further time and money.
There are five bathroom collections to choose from, ensuring a panel solution for every market and every budget. Made from laminated birch, with PVC or brushed aluminium profile edges, the decorative wall panels provide instant, hygienic waterproofing. Fibo’s superior ranges also benefit from 3D grooves to replicate a grouting effect – a unique and authentic feature giving the look and feel of premium traditional tiles.
Fibo’s Managing Director Scott Beattie comments:
"Fibo draws its inspiration from its Scandinavian origins. Scandinavian design is about simplicity, precision and quality and we’re keen these key characteristics are exemplified in our brand, range and product innovation. Our wall panels stand the toughest tests over time."
Fibo’s wall panels offer a sophisticated solution for bathrooms and wet rooms and come with a market leading 15 year guarantee.
With two warehouses in England and Scotland, Fibo panels are supplied through a network of builders’ merchants in the UK.
