From the sunny far North of New Zealand, the JNL Triboard factory in Kaitaia turns Northland pine into premium building panels. Semi-finished 36mm Triboard panels are transported just a few kilometres up the road to Durapanel, who oversees the computer-controlled CNC milling. Here, walls and ceilings are completed panel by panel and prepared for transport to building sites all over New Zealand for fast, efficient installation.
The key to panel construction is precision, and the strength and durability of Triboard as a material makes it perfect for CNC milling with laser-like accuracy. Walls, doors, sockets and wiring channels are all pre-cut for an entire house in a matter of hours.
Fully BRANZ appraised, the Triboard wall construction system is developed around improved quality, speed and efficiency in building. Walls are solid, with excellent insulation and acoustic properties. There is no requirement for internal wall-framing means that a Triboard house can provide up to 6% more useable space in an average-sized three-bedroom build.
From the far North to deep South, Triboard travels easily without concern for weather damage or handling problems. One of those distant destinations is Modbox, a Central Otago and Southland based building company specialising in Modular and Tiny Homes.
When Modbox saw the need for a quicker, more sustainable way to build than traditional framing, it was Triboard JNL and Durapanel that delivered on the quality, supply and price that is key to what Modbox was trying to achieve. Modbox homes need to stand up to the brutal sun of a drought as well as the harsh ice and snow of a southern winter, yet still, stylishly enhance the owner's lifestyle in one of the most stunning environments in the world — a fantastic example of making the best out of what you've got in your back yard.

Triboard is harvested from a certified sustainably managed forest estate in the far North of New Zealand.
