IPS Panel Systems not only conceal unsightly pipework at the rear of a toilet cubicle, but they also complete the modern washroom look. Our range of IPS (Integrated Plumbing System) panels is a hygienic addition to any washroom. Their lightweight, yet, robust qualities make them both practical and easy to handle. Choose from pre-constructed timber or steel framework with factory-clipped panels or select our frameless panel-only option, ideal for replacing damaged panels.
We can provide IPS factory-fitted sanitaryware for quick and easy washroom installation, or duct-only systems for your own configuration on-site. Both are available in a variety of materials, including melamine-faced chipboard (MFC), High-Pressure Laminate (HPL), Solid Grade Laminate (SGL) and real wood veneer. We have an extensive colour catalogue ready for you to custom design your washroom, collated from Formica and Polyrey washroom laminate collections.
Our healthcare IPS units have been specifically developed to comply with all of the relevant healthcare legislations and are ideal for use in hospitals as well as dental and doctors' surgeries. We are happy to develop and customise the brassware and sanitaryware offered within these systems to suit any IPS panel set-up required.

How to fit IPS panels
To fit an IPS panel/duct panel system, you will need the following tools:
Attach the lower flash gap to the frame and countersink screws 25mm from the top edge of the frame. Once you have achieved this, you can add the side, then top flash gaps, to the frame in the same way as the lower (remembering to keep the screws 25mm from the top edge as you do so).
Attach the lower panel - It’s important that once fitted, the bottom panel is 150mm away from the floor. Screw lines should be 46mm from the sides of the lower panel and push clips are then attached to the panel and the inside of the flash gap. Then, the panel is attached by connecting the push clips together. When you have completed this, ensure that the lower panel is level.
Attach the middle panel, ensuring that the screw lines are 38mm from the sides on the middle panel. You then need to attach hook clips to both the panel and inside of the flash gaps. In order to secure the middle panel, you will need to slot the hook and clips together.
Attach the top panel - Similarly to the middle panel, you will need to ensure that screw lines are 38mm from the sides but you must also have 65mm of space from the top. At this point, you can attach the hook clips to the panel and to the inside of the flash gaps. Finally, you can slot in the top panel and your installation of an IPS panel is complete!
Please note that the procedure of fitting an IPS panel should be carried out by someone who is qualified to do so and is able to adhere to safety measures at all times.
