Trade Essentials Triboard

Triboard is an E0 rated, engineered wood panel made in New Zealand from 100% sustainable Radiata Pine. Creating clean lines with superior strength, Triboard consists of 3 layers; a dimensionally stable strandboard core sandwiched between a fibre board 'skin'.

Available in three different density profiles and up to 30% lighter than comparable wood panel products, the innovative combination of smooth surfaces and inner strength makes Triboard suitable for a wide range of applications.
