Fibo is the ultimate tile alternative for your customers

At Guardian Distribution we have partnered with Norwegian tile alternative wall panelling brand Fibo. We are proud to be the exclusive supplier of Fibo products in Ireland.

What are Fibo Wall Panels?

Fibo wall panels are a luxury finish with half the fuss of traditional tiles.
These high-quality wall panels consist of an enhanced moisture barrier, plywood core and high-pressure laminate layer. These panels are expertly crafted and are proven to prevent bacteria growth. Each panel also incorporates Aqualock edges that protect against moisture seeping in, a feature that also speeds up installation.

A prominent element in the Fibo panels is a 3d tile effect with grout lines, without the effort of actually grouting them. This smart tile alternative means fitters can easily complete larger projects and maintain a classic tile look without all the labour of traditional tiling. Fibo panels can conveniently be installed directly onto the existing walls, (even surfaces only). Consequently, speeding up the installation time of traditional wall decoration methods. This superior panelling range allows fitters to complete a project to a high standard and in a timely fashion so they have more time for other jobs.

Additionally, through extensive testing, Fibo panels are confirmed to achieve a 100% waterproof and antibacterial status when installed correctly. As a result, the panels will perform as needed and are easy to keep clean in bathrooms and other moisture-heavy rooms. In addition, Fibo panelling comes with a 25-year product warranty for peace of mind. Consequently, these benefits are important for the fitters and will give a pleasant experience to the end user.

Why should you stock a tile alternative?

Tiling is commonly regarded as a luxury product as it looks beautiful when installed precisely and can cater for low to high budgets. However, when taking into consideration the labour and skills that are required for tiling, a project installation can take longer than other methods used to finish and waterproof a wall. For example, to remodel an already tiled wall, the contractor would have to remove all the current tiles, re-level and waterproof the wall before putting the new tiles on and grouting. This multi-step process can easily become delayed or more costly than first planned, which is why tile alternatives are becoming increasingly popular.
