Metal, plastic & circular panels, frames and locks - explained simply and quickly.

Artex was founded in 1935. The brand name comes from two words – artistic and texture. By the 1980s, the company had achieved phenomenal growth, making Artex a household name. Artex is also a sister company to British Gypsum.

Profilex Access Panels was founded in 1990, as the first manufacturer of access panels in the UK, quickly establishing a product leadership and becoming an access panel synonym for architects for years.

In 2000 Profilex was acquired by British Gypsum, to complement the British Gypsum offering. British Gypsum is the market leader and recognised authority on drywall systems, with expertise and experience gained during more than a century of supporting the UK construction industry.

In 2005, Saint-Gobain acquired Artex and British Gypsum, as part of its construction products division. Shortly after, Profilex become a part of Artex’s portfolio. It allows Artex to provide a high level of logistic service and synergy with British Gypsum technical offerings.

During 2010 the Profilex product range was expanded and a full bespoke offering was launched to the market.
