An ideal decorative product for use in noise containment or attenuation applications.

If used externally or in applications exposed to moisture, it is recommended the panel is treated and sealed against fungal and termite attack with a recognised H3 treatment and finished with a paint or water repellent to minimise surface checking.

BB/CC Plywood

BB/CC hardwood ply is a very popular feature plywood choice for applications where the appearance of the face is important, but the back is less important. For example furniture, signs, movie sets, feature walls.

The faces have been sanded to make staining or painting easier, noting that as a natural product, colour variations will exist between sheets. The colour may range from a dark red to light blonde in appearance.

Manufactured using an ‘A’ bond resin, BB/CC is suitable for a range of applications involving some external exposure.  It is recommended though that for applications involving long term full exposure, the panel is treated and sealed against fungal and termite attack with a recognised H3 treatment and finished with a paint or water repellent to minimise surface checking.

Whilst BB/CC is a non-structural plywood, being manufactured from 100% hardwood, the product is quite naturally durable and strong.

The BB face may at times have small filled and sanded imperfections.

Plywood Cladding

SHADOWclad decorative structural plywood cladding is a stylish and versatile building product suitable for both outdoor and indoor building applications.  Favoured by architects, designers and builders alike for its strength, durability and appearance, SHADOWclad allows you to achieve a beautiful façade without an expensive price tag.

SHADOWclad can be used in a broad range of external applications once sealed with a suitable paint or stain system and installed to recommended guidelines. It has been treated with LOSP (H3) to help protect the cladding from both insect (termite) and fungal (rot) attack.

With the panels being light weight in relation to other cladding options, it is ideally suited to projects constructed on sloping blocks. No special tools are required and with inherent bracing strength, SHADOWclad can eliminate the requirement for another bracing product in the construction process.

SHADOWclad is available in either primed (beige) or natural look with a textured or grooved finish and is manufactured from plantation pine timber, a renewable resource.
