Proplas Tile by IDS
Stone Graphite and Stone Grey Large Tile
Reflecting the popularity of large format tiles and rich grey tones in the bathroom, Proplas Tile by IDS has introduced two wall panel decors to its range. The Stone Graphite Large Tile and Stone Grey Large Tile offer a tile design in 400 by 250mm format and provide a realistic tile and grout effect, which are said to be easier and faster to install.
The tongue and groove 2,800 by 250 by 8mm versions are non-porous and mould resistant, with insulation and sound-proofing benefits. The Large Tile decors join Proplas’ existing smaller tile designs in Stone Beige, Stone Grey and Stone Graphite, all in matt finishes.
To ensure trouble-free installation of its wall panels, Fibo UK has launched a range of branded accessories. The products include adhesive, sealant, wipes, spray and more, and have been introduced in response to demand.
The accessories will be available through merchants that stock the bathroom and kitchen panels. Fibo panels come in a range of colours and designs and can reportedly be fitted up to five times quicker than tiles, using basic carpentry skills. The accessories have been tried and tested, having been used in Europe with Fibo’s products for a number of years.
Reportedly the UK’s only bathroom fan with Odour Sense Technology, Vent-Axia has launched the PureAir Sense. Designed to improve the air households breathe, the PureAir Sense is equipped with an odour sensor that increases airflow when the air is poor, helping ensure a comfortable living environment.
When the sensor detects a strong odour, the fan speed increases and extracts the odour to help ensure the air always feels fresh. It combines a host of intelligent features, quiet operation as well as featuring a simple to use LED touch panel and app control functions.
