  • CONSTRUCTION Ply core:

    Fibo panels consist of a wooden core material covered with a decorative high-pressure laminate(HPL) on the front face and a backing laminate (HPL) on the reverse side. This core is specially developed 7-layer 9mm WBP (exterior grade) plywood. The plywood core is PEFC certified (refer towebsite www.fibo.co.uk to download certificate). The plywood core is excellent for wetrooms, showers and other areas with extremely high humidity. The long edges of the panels (600mm and 900mm) are delivered with the Aqualock “click lock” tongue & groove system for concealed fixing. 1200mm panels are straight edged.
