Key considerations for housing associations
Housing associations face many challenges including regulatory frameworks, the need for more housing stock, faster construction and maintenance, as well as a duty to accommodate those requiring increased accessibility. Multipanel products improve speed of build and provide a number of other key benefits including reducing maintenance and vacancy downtime.
Increased speed of construction
Speed of construction is crucial in delivering social housing and Multipanel wall panels can be fitted in 24 hours compared with 3-5 days for traditional tiles. Rapid install can be achieved because Multipanel can be fitted straight onto timber frameworks or over existing tiles and there is no need to wait for specialist trades.
Multipanel walls have a tongue and groove joining system called Hydrolock, which is unique to Multipanel. Hydrolock allows multiple panels to click into place providing a rapid refurbishment solution for bathrooms.
Reduced maintenance costs and occupancy downtime
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 and in many cases replacement of tiles after the tenant moves out. These issues can be dramatically reduced with the use of our bathroom wall panels as all they require is a simple wipe down with a non-abrasive detergent to maintain a pristine condition well beyond the 15 year warranty.
Value for money
Not only can Multipanel reduce installation costs by up to £30/m2, lifetime value is also impacted as our panels come with a 15-year warranty with little to no snagging or maintenance required during this time.
