Plankwall Plain Faced (PF) Panels are made of MDF with tongue and groove edges suitable for use on interior walls and ceilings. Made from sustainably grown Nelson pine with an E0 rating, these panels are produced at a very low emissions cost. MDF panels excel In lively, boisterous homes, education facilities, and situations where impact against a wall is likely. The panels are more than three times resistant to impact than plaster board.
The tongue and groove join ensures the panel face remains as a flush surface. It provides effective bracing, as well as reducing the need for sub-trades such as Gib stoppers and fixers. Panels are easily fixed using pins and GLU.
The panels can be supplied as naturally raw MDF, with no coating. Or as Almost Finished® which has two coats of a white, factory applied epoxy acrylic UV on the front face (Colour match: Dulux Matt Tui Tuft 915 1266M). And a clear UV coat on the back. Almost Finished, whether it is considered as a finished or primed surface, it will save site labour and reduce project times.
Site applied acrylic paints freely transmit moisture. The epoxy acrylic UV coats on Almost Finished panels, protects from moisture, mould and atmospheric changes. Suitable for some external areas which are weather protected such as carports.
The join can be left as a fine straight line or can be concealed with filler. Plain faced can be supplied as PFV, with a slight indent on each edge making the join look like a V Groove, making the join more evident.
As a general fixing recommendation use:
Use a quality paintable gap filler on joins and internal corners. Also in the grooves where they meet the skirting and architrave before painting. This will ensure with any slight panel movement the paint remains unbroken.
Priming can be applied to 'raw' panels before skirtings and architraves are fitted. Using a coarse paint roller will also seal the grooves without need for brush. This gives a slight undulated finish.
Plankwall has been used extensively throughout New Zealand since 2000 in residential buildings, as well as in retail and commercial applications.
