Timber has a huge impact in the home and can immediately set the tone of a space, creating intimate and inviting environments. Combining the stunning intimacy of native timbers with the rugged durability of a precision-engineered structural product, Big River’s Armourpanel is a popular choice for both residential and light commercial building practices that require resilience, stability and impact resistance.
Chosen by award-winning architects for its versatility, stability, strength and visual aesthetics, Armourpanel comprises two outer layers of hardwood veneer with three more layers of solid hardwood, bonded together in a cross-ply manufacturing process to form a strong, solid and stable panel.
The hard-wearing panel product can be used for flooring, wall panelling, screening, cabinetry, joinery and ceiling linings. It is proven to remain stable through a range of harsh climatic conditions and has a much greater resistance to shrinkage than solid timber boards.
Armourpanel is available in a range of native species including Blackbutt, Flooded Gum, Spotted Gum and Sydney Blue Gum. Each species’ unique grain structure is preserved so no two sheets look alike, which makes Armourpanel particularly desirable for residential fit outs requiring character with a distinctly natural appeal.
Panels are available as a 2400mm x 1200mm sheet or optional 1800mm x 1200mm sheet in 15mm, 18mm or 21mm thickness and supplied ‘raw’, so water-based, solvent-based stains and oil and wax finishes can be used.
Armourpanel is manufactured in Australia under the Plywood Association of Australia’s third party audited quality control program and milled from managed regrowth and plantation forest hardwoods. It is Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) certified.
