HOW TO INSTALL FIBO WALL PANELS

Category: General
Published:



Fibo wall systems are made with different product components that create a simple and complete solution from start to finish. The wall system is installed by first setting up profiles like a base profile and internal corner profiles. This will form the framework of the wall system. The panels are installed, and all joints and cut surfaces are sealed with Fibo Seal. You finish the installation by using L-shaped finishing profiles. Accessories for support during the installation session are also available to make it easier and secure a good result.



Preparations before installing Fibo

Panel handling before opening packages

  • Keep panels in the plastic packaging and in a dry environment. Lay flat when storing and transporting.
  • Fibo wall panels must be kept at room temperature for at least 72 hours prior to installation.
  • Remove the plastic wrapping and check for any surface damage.
  • Carefully move the panels, avoiding any scrapes and scratches along the edges and surfaces.

Preparing the floor and back wall

The floor must be prepared before installing panels on the wall. The floor membrane must extend at least 6-inches up from the floor. Fibo panels can be installed on existing walls or directly on the wall studs. The studs should be 600mm apart and 800mm tall. When installing on wall studs, the center distance must be 600mm and the horizontal blocks/nail strokes must have a center distance of 800mm. The wall must be reinforced where you hang a sink basin or other bathroom fixtures. When installing Fibo on existing walls, you can use one of the following three alternatives:

  • Plywood board 12mm – 15mm
  • 18mm rough panel (mounted horizontally c/c 300mm)
  • 15mm OSB klasse 3


Grouting and cleaning during installation


Click-lock, cut surfaces and profiles must be cleaned before grouting with Fibo Seal. We recommend using Fibo Seal on all plate joints and corner profiles.
