Traditionally in New Zealand plasterboard has been used for wall linings. Plasterboard wall lining products do not perform well in high impact areas, and also require stopping before they can be painted.
It was these issues that led Juken NZ to develop an alternative that could handle high impact areas and came with a ready-to-paint surface.
Triboard TGV is a three-layered product. Its core is a mix of wood strand and resin, which provides the ultimate impact resistance. On either side of the core, MDF outer skins are pressed together to create the finished board.
“The strand core provides superior impact resistance, which is why it’s ideal for situations like garages where car doors or kids’ bikes could often come into contact with the wall lining,” Juken NZ’s Gordon Wilmshurst says.
“Because the core is dimensionally stable, it also has better screw holding ability than other commonly used wall linings, which means screws won’t loosen over time.”
