Designer Series – Textured
Description

The Designer Series Textured panels offer a truly unique residential façade solution, with a depth of colour and intricate texture not seen in the New Zealand façade market before. Available in natural tones, the pre-finished panels will complement any colour scheme and will create a point of difference to any home.

The Designer Series range can be used to make a bold statement or to complement and blend in with the materials of a home. You can mix colours and textures to create the look of multiple claddings while using one seamless cladding system on the building eliminating junctions between cladding systems what are a weak point for moisture penetration.

Designer Series is a modern, innovative and distinctive range of pre-finished cement-bonded fibrous wood particle panels ideal for any facade application, and unique in the New Zealand market.
