How the Social Housing Sector Benefits From Multipanel

  1. Rapid Installation

    Save up to 3 days during the construction of social housing when you switch to Multipanel wall panels. Our Hydrolock® tongue and groove joining system creates a discreet, watertight joint without the need for grout. This means that our panels can be installed up to 5x faster than tiles. Contact us to find out how much time you can save on your next project.

  2. Easy Maintenance

    One of the major challenges in the social housing sector is that bathrooms need to be refreshed for incoming tenants. This results in significant cleaning demands and, in many cases, the replacement of tiles after the tenant moves out. With the use of our bathroom wall panels, downtime and cleaning costs can be dramatically reduced as Multipanel wall panels require only a simple wipe down with a non-abrasive detergent to maintain their pristine condition.

  3. On-Trend Designs

    When providing social housing, a speedy construction is crucial, but this often means a limited availability of designs. With Multipanel, you have a wide range of designs, colors and textures available at any time. Create the luxurious bathrooms of your customers' dreams ‒ for a fraction of the cost.
