Fenta Ceiling Tiles
Description

Fenta is a prefinished, washable commercial ceiling tile, made with a quality fibre cement board. Finished with a UV-cured antimicrobial gloss, it’s ideal for use where hygiene is critical.

Fenta Tiles are available prefinished in white satin or gloss, or can be digitally printed for further customisation.

Key Features
  • Code compliant — hygienic and fire resistant:

Fenta ensures the highest levels of hygiene and sanitation. Water and moisture resistant, its hard, smooth surface is impregnated with an antimicrobial additive to minimise the spread of bacteria, mould and mildew, ensuring compliance with B2 Durability and G3 Food Preparation requirements in the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC). The tiles fit into all standard suspended ceiling grids and meet the maximum standard in fire safety – Group 1-S.

  • Scratch resistant, durable UV coating:

Fenta features a durable ultraviolet (UV) coated surface. UV-cured coating systems are harder than conventional coatings and offer excellent impact and scratch resistance. The Fenta surface will last longer than most architectural paint systems, so requires less maintenance over its lifetime.

  • Environmental — VOC-free paint:

With UV technology, coatings are instantly dried on the UV line with no VOC emissions. UV curing complies with international environmental standards, such as Global Green Tag, and the coating is manufactured under the ISO 14001 environmental standard.

  • Brightens spaces, highly light-reflective

Fenta's high-gloss surface has high reflectivity to maximise light reflectance and light distribution in a room for improved working conditions and energy efficiency. Service spaces are often windowless, and whenever Fenta has been retrofitted into an existing space, the staff are delighted by the better lighting conditions, making their work easier.
