Plywood is an excellent choice for external use in semi-exposed and now fully exposed areas, provided the type of plywood is correctly specified.
Austral Plywoods only recommends ariaply and Endurapanel® for external applications.
ariaply is a factory finished, plywood feature panel that is ready to install. Perfect for ceilings, soffits and internal walls, it is available in 6 attractive colours to suit any project. Made from high quality exterior Hoop Pine plywood, ariaply is a premium product throughout, finished with a unique 3 coat system that provides both good looks and durability.
Fully manufactured in Australia, ariaply is backed by a 7 year coating warranty.
Endurapanel® is a Hoop Pine plywood panelling system that achieves the look of a traditional slat wall or ceiling, beautifully designed for appearance and installation ease. Endurapanel® is the only smooth faced plywood panel designed for fully exposed areas that is also backed by a 7 year coating warranty. An acoustic option is also available for Endurapanel®, designed to reduce unwanted noise and echo. Endurapanel® is perfect for house and commercial building facades, outdoor entertaining areas, balcony ceilings and shop fitouts.
Remember - both ariaply and Endurapanel® are backed by a written 7 year coating warranty in addition to our standard 25 year bond warranty, making ariaply and Endurapanel® the only plywood products available with an external warranty.
