Triboard TGV (tongue and groove V) is a three-layered panel with a wood strand core sandwiched between MDF outer “skins.” The result is a clean-lined panel that has high resilience and impact resistance, making it perfect for lining walls and ceilings, be it in a home renovation, shed, beach house, garage or workshop — wherever excellent impact resistance is required. The dimensionally stable core gives the assurance of superior screw holding ability over other commonly used wall linings; screws will not loosen over time, providing lasting performance.
Triboard TGV comes paint-ready. The MDF surfaces offer a grade 5+ paint finish capability, so clients are free to decorate it whichever way they choose. This innovative combination of smooth surfaces with inner strength makes it ideal as an alternative to traditional wall lining products.
Juken New Zealand (JNL) supply Triboard TGV in two sizes, 400 x 1200 x 15mm and 400 x 3740 x 15mm. These boards are light enough for one able person to handle.
Q. What’s the point behind the Tongue and Groove joint?
A. Each TGV panel is 400mm wide, and it may be that the stud centres are not at 400 or, if lining a portal or pole shed, there may be no studs at all. Having a Tongue and Groove joint between the Triboard panels means that it doesn’t matter what centres the studs are because framing behind the join isn't necessary. Or, in the case of having girts only in a portal building, installing vertical nogs to support the edge of the sheet isn't necessary as it would be for other lining products.
