Strandboard is a high-density substrate, which blends practical and creative elements together for a variety of uses in residential and commercial applications.
When you need to cover large areas quickly and provide a more rigid floor surface, choose “Tongue & Groove” to give an excellent base for tiles, carpet or vinyl. Or use “Square Edge” when a clear finish is required. With Strandboard, you’ll experience the benefits of timber, providing warmth underfoot and a forgiving surface. Often, it is used effectively on decorative wall panels, ceilings and stairway construction.
What Others Have To Say…
‘Strandboard’s striking textured appearance looks stunning when it is colour washed and used for ceilings. We specified colour washed Strandboard for the Textilia and Athena showrooms, with another prime consideration being the efficiency of the span size we could obtain from the sheets’. – Kerry Avery, Avery Team Architecture Ltd, Auckland
‘We are in the business of building robust and impact resilient floors to take on the rigorous activities of all indoor sports. The finished result always looks great and our clients are impressed with the structural performance, as well as the durability of the surface.’ – Peter Fonda, Grand Aarow Sports Floors, Brisbane
Strandboard’s high density means it is second to none for impact resistance. However, it’s low weight to density ratio makes it the lightest and strongest sheet flooring product on the market. It’s made from timber flakes rather than chips, so the product has strength and durability. So it’s the perfect choice for commercial applications. Create a robust finish with a rich ambiance for heavy traffic areas such as bars, retail showrooms and gyms.
