Norwegian-based leading supplier of high-quality waterproof wall panel systems showcased its innovative kitchen and bath applications in Las Vegas on January 21-23, 2020.
LAS VEGAS, NV – Fibo Group, a global leader in waterproof wall panel systems for residential and commercial building and remodeling applications, introduced its 100% waterproof wall panel system for the kitchen and bath at the 2020 International Builders’ Show. Featuring new designs and styles for the U.S. market, Fibo hosted product installation demonstrations for builders and remodelers.
“We were thrilled to showcase our Fibo waterproof wall panel system applications to the U.S. market at the 2020 International Builders’ Show,” said Anders Carlson, CEO Fibo Group. “The Fibo waterproof wall paneling system is a durable, low maintenance alternative to kitchen backsplashes, shower enclosures and wet room wall coverings for both residential and commercial buildings. Since 1952, we’ve led the European market with our innovative designs, and now we’re expanding distribution in the U.S. where demand for cost-effective and durable wet room wall panel applications is increasing.”
Manufactured in its newly expanded, state-of-art plant in Norway, Fibo waterproof wall paneling system offers an eco-friendly, durable and cost-effective alternative to wall systems that guard against water, mildew and other moisture-related problems. The product features a unique Aqualock click system that
simplifies the installation process and minimizes joints lines for a seamless look.
Standard wall panels are sized 23.62 x 15.74 inches and can be mounted directly onto wood or steel studs, existing walls or over ceramic tiles. The Fibo waterproof wall panel system does not require a water vapor barrier or waterproof membrane behind the panels, helping builders and remodelers save on labor and material costs. The strong laminate surface can withstand direct water exposure and large temperature fluctuations and features a 15 year warranty when installed and maintained correctly.
“Fibo waterproof wall panel systems typically install five times faster than traditional ceramic tiles,” said Carlson. “Offering a valuable proposition to builders looking to decrease labor costs.”
The new introductions showcased at International Builders’ Show are complemented by an expanded range of Fibo products.
