Vepps FAQs

  • Product

What is Vepps?

Vepps is an off-site manufactured pre-plumbed panelling system that used to be known as IPS. It is a washroom panel system that comes complete with factory fitted sanitaryware and concealed plumbing.

What is IPS?

IPS stands for Integrated Plumbing Systems. It is often used to describe any type of washroom panelling system, however true IPS should come with pre-installed sanitaryware.

What’s included?

Everything is delivered as a ready-made unit, including panels, factory-fitted, fully tested sanitaryware, metal framing and associated fittings and fixings.

How much duct space is needed?

Typically, you will need to allow a depth of 250mm for urinal and washbasin plumbing, and 300mm for a standard cistern. 

In healthcare settings, boxed-out and Hygen units are constructed with a 150mm return.

Is it easy to install?

Yes. It offers a much quicker and simpler installation than plain duct panel alternatives.

Is Vepps suitable for all commercial washroom sectors?

From education to retail, healthcare to industrial, Venesta has a proven track record of supplying high quality panelling systems for the most demanding environments.

Is it expensive?

No. It actually costs you less overall. Reduced delivery costs, faster installation, less trades, no snagging.

Because it’s manufactured off-site and delivered ready to fit, you don’t waste time checking the compatibility of individual components or coordinating their delivery to site.  The panels can be installed without the need for specialist trades, and in half the time of plain panels.

And our guaranteed quality also means zero snagging post installation.

What colours are there, and do they match the cubicles?

Our Vepps panels are available in all 34 laminate colours, 11 real wood veneers and 10 ColourCoat finishes to match our full range of toilet cubicles and vanity units.

What sanitaryware is available?

From cutting-edge, designer sanitaryware to simple, budget options, we partner with Armitage Shanks, Ideal Standard and SanCeram for a great selection of WCs, urinals and wash basins. We also have a wide choice of brassware to complement your washroom.

For the healthcare sector, our pre-plumbed sanitary assemblies are fully compliant, tested and proven solutions.

What about maintenance?

Strong 90° linear bearing hinges and panel support ratchets allow for speedier access to the duct space.

The dowel dock system ensures panels always return to their correct position, so maintenance staff don’t waste time realigning them after they’ve finished. Hassle-free ongoing maintenance, without the need for manual handling heavy panels protects their wellbeing and also prevents panels being damaged.

Less time and less damage, means less cost.

How long does it take to deliver?

Our standard lead time for Vepps is 4-6 weeks. But of course, every project is different.

When you speak to our friendly team, they’ll be able to keep you informed and coordinate the manufacture and delivery of your washroom products to fit in with your schedule of works.

Is it guaranteed?

Quality underscores everything we do.  We ensure all our products and materials are put through rigorous testing before we launch them. We are so confident in our IPS panels and sanitaryware, they all come with a rock solid 10 year guarantee.

What makes Vepps different to other IPS systems?

At Venesta, we have always been at the forefront of innovation in our industry. Vepps is highly engineered using modern materials, non-ferous metals and aluminium click-fix components. Where others just fit sanitaryware, ours is thoroughly tested. 

Our linear-bearing hinges are unique to Vepps which allow easy access to duct spaces without the need to remove the panels which can often cause damage and manual handling issues.  And the dowel-dock system also ensures the panels perfectly align back into place, every time.

You simply won't find a better IPS system.
