    A)
    This is what you will need before you start
    • Fibo installation screws with bits 3.0 x 35 mm.
      (Cramps or adequate plasterwall staples (2.3 x 35mm) can also be used.
      If you are using a nailgun, you have to be cautious to not ruin the nails/cramps.

    • Drill
    • Finetooth saw or a circular saw
    • Measuring tape or folding ruler, aswell as a pencil or marker.
    • Approved sealant, such as Fibo Seal.

    B)
    Transport, control and storing

    Fibo Wall Panels have to remain in roomtemperature in a minimum of 3 days before installation, or even longer if they have been stored in a cold location.

    The panles are to be protected against moisture during transport and storage, laying on a flat surface, with the decor side of one panel touching the decor side of another.
    This is to protect the decors from damage.

    Avoid sliding the panels around, as that can create scratches.
    The panels should always be lifted.

    The building must be closed, and all concrete and sanding work has to be finished.

    Be aware that the end user must control the product before use.
    If a panel with faults end up installed, would the liability be reduced to the value of the panels.

    C)
    Maintenance and cleaning

    The panels are clean with normal detergents.
    With normal stains, use gradually stronger detergents.
    Avoid detergents with polishing agents.

    If sealant ends up on the panels it should be immediately removed with the sealant tool.
    The seem is washed with Fibo Clean or similar, and then immediately with Fibo Wipes or similar.

    D)
    Membrane underneath the floor

    Installation of a membrane underneath the floor must follow the Norwegian wet room standard, which states that it needs to be a minimum of 25mm above the tile edging.

    E)
    Back wall alternatives FFibo Wall Panel can be installed on fully covered walls or onto studwork (600mm spacing widthwise, and 800mm spacing heightwise).
    The underlaying surface must be flat and give a good grip to nails and screws where panels will meet up.
    Remember that if you are to hang heavy furniture somewhere, you would need to add reinforcements.

    When installing the panel on solid wall, you may use 12mm plywood, 18mm roughpanel horisontally, or 15 OSB class 3, with a minimum density of 640kg/m3, aceptable abbility to secure screws, and a vapor resistance value of less than Sd 10M

    Solid wall is an ideal sollution for mounting effectpanel (width 30cm).
