Avoid the high labour content and material cost of individually machined timber planks. Plankwall V10 (12mm) is a 1200mm wide panel with tongued and grooved edges. Panels are available in lengths of 2440, 2740, and 3640mm.
The panels are manufactured by Nelson Pine using environmentally responsible MDF production methods. Plankwall then precision processes the panels using 100% renewable and carboNZero certified ecotricity, sourced from wind, hydro and solar.
Installation is simple with fixing by pins and construction adhesive. Stopping of the pins holes is by a wipe of a common acrylic water-based filler. As a precaution, the joins of the panels can also have a thin film applied. If the structure moves the filler provides a flexible join.
Plankwall V10 9mm and 12mm thick MDF panels are not subject to powdering around fixings should panels be under stress from wind or earthquakes.
They can be fixed in a manner to provide the following SCION P21 bracing results: BU Wind = 149 (124 BU/M) and BU Earthquake = 161 (134 BU/m).
