Social Housing Bathrooms

Founded in 2000, Heatcare Oil and Gas Ltd have been providing services for both commercial and domestic properties throughout the North East of Scotland for over two decades. Working with Insurance Providers and Registered Social Landlords, they offer an all-trades service which includes gas and boiler maintenance, plumbing, electrical maintenance, joining, painting, and general labouring and building work.

The company specialises in bathroom adaptations and wet rooms for elderly or less able-bodied residents. For efficiency and aesthetics, they have been continually choosing to use Multipanel products over traditional ceramic tiles for several years.

Recently, Heatcare Oil and Gas Ltd used our panels for their bathroom refurbishment work with Grampian Housing Association, Langstane Housing Association and Osprey Housing.

“I’ve been using Multipanel since it started in 2003 and have recommended its use in several different companies I have worked for since,” says Shaun Stachan, Operations Director of Heatcare. “It’s far quicker than tiling, and better for fixing into.”

In addition to our panels being available in a wide range of decors, the low-maintenance and easy to clean nature of our panels makes them perfect for housing associations and tenants alike.

With the need for rigorous cleaning removed, all that is needed to keep panels in pristine condition is a quick wipe down with water and a non-abrasive mild detergent—ideal for elderly or less able-bodied residents and great for reducing maintenance costs.

“Part of my job involves tenant surveys, and we’ve seen a real shift from us presenting Multipanel as an option, to tenants asking us for it,” continues Shaun. “The ease of cleaning, and choice of modern decors makes it really appealing.”

 

For this project, Heatcare selected the following waterproof wall panels:

Frost White from the Classic Collection with Hydrolock for a watertight and joint free finish.
