Pioneering new material, Isocore, supports UK Government’s anti-mould campaign

Tavistock introduce Isocore bath panels, an alternative to MDF and plastic in bathrooms.

Leading bathroom specialist Tavistock has developed a solution to combat the prevalent issue of mould growth in bathrooms, presenting social housing providers with a reliable and sustainable approach to address this concern.

The development comes in response to the UK Government’s “Make things Right” campaign, that has shed light on the need for a reevaluation of bathroom materials, given that cases of mould build-up are most commonly found in these areas. Tavistock recognises this urgent requirement for preventive action and has developed bath panels with a strong focus on mould prevention, alongside an impressive range of features.

Isocore panels are specially designed to be 100% waterproof, ensuring that no moisture seeps through and eliminating the potential for mould growth. By using innovative materials, Tavistock have successfully created a product that not only safeguards against mould but also offers exceptional durability and longevity. Isocore bath panels are also backed by a lifetime guarantee, providing peace of mind for both housing associations and tenants.

An excellent alternative to plastic, Isocore bath panels are 100% recyclable, aligning with the sustainability goals of local authorities and supporting the wider environmental initiatives. By choosing Isocore, housing associations can not only address the pressing issue of mould but also contribute to a greener future.

The significance of these benefits cannot be overstated, especially when considering the alarming statistics surrounding mould problems in social housing properties. Recent data indicates that approximately 6% of social housing properties in England, roughly 240,000 homes, suffer from notable or serious damp and mould issues. Isocore bath panels provide an essential solution to tackle this issue head-on, providing a lasting impact on the overall living conditions of residents.

“We are excited to introduce Isocore bath panels to the housing associations sector as a reliable and effective solution to the persistent problem of mould growth in bathrooms,” said Rob Shean, Head of Product Development at Tavistock. “Our panels not only offer superior protection against mould and fungi but also address the need for sustainability in social housing. We are committed to supporting the Make things Right campaign and assisting housing associations and local authorities in providing healthier living spaces for tenants.”
