V-epps (IPS Panels)

The V-epps or IPS panel system is a revolutionary, fully engineered metal framed pre-plumbed system offering even faster installation, even easier ongoing maintenance and a much wider range of sanitaryware options, all at a lower cost. 

V-epps, the next generation, gives you the industry's first fully precision engineered, pre-plumbed system that ticks all the boxes. There are lots of obvious benefits of V-epps, it's fast and easy to install for a start. But the ingenious engineering, well thats much less apparent; in fact it's completely hidden from view. Discover our secrets here.

High strength linear-bearing hinges provide smooth movement and allow panels to be positioned at different heights, with no gaps between panels. The innovative dowel-dock is designed for perferct panel alignment, while the adjustable zinc plated steel tie backs provide a bracing system for easier installation. And because we understand the need for added security, our stainless steel discreet tamper proof panel lock is available to offer maximum security. 

We designed our V-epps pre-plumbed system to be installed in just four easy steps, reducing the need for specialist onsite skills. Our partnership with Armitage Shanks, Ideal Standard and SanCeram gives you the flexibility to choose industry leading products to complement your washroom.
