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.”

The boards are 400mm wide, which means they’re ideal for the DIY enthusiast or small builder to purchase and throw in the back of the SUV or ute to transport. They’re also easier to install because of their width, which means the job can be easily done by one person. “It’s often quite difficult to stand up full size sheets so this is a good alternative,” Gordon says.

The boards each have a tongue and groove machined into them so once the first board is standing, the others clip together easily before they are fastened. “The other benefit is that Triboard TGV can be joined off frame, which means: no studs – no problems. It's an ideal solution where there is limited fixing."

Triboard TGV is comparable only to OSB boards as a wall lining alternative, but they differ in their superior impact resistance and finish. “The boards come with a paintable surface, which means there is no need for stopping before they are painted. This cuts out the need to have a plasterer finish the walls before they are painted, reducing time and cost for the project.”

The boards come in one width, but are available in two lengths, 2400mm or 3700mm – the latter designed for large-scale sheds and rural buildings such as workshops.
