Parklex Façade is a high density stratified laminate timber panel. Manufactured from kraft paper treated with thermoset resins, pressed under high pressure and temperature and finished with natural timber veneers. Highly resistant to UV radiation and atmospheric agents. Everlook®, a special overlay dramatically increases the normal life of the panel, improving UV resistance and colour stability. The variety of finishes and colours in natural and dyed panels sets Parklex apart as a result of its versatility, making it the ideal covering from any type of project.
Facade – The traditional Parklex finish. Reveals the simple and natural richness of the veneer, with variations in tone and grain to be expected with differing species.
Skin Internal Floor, Walls & Ceiling – A surface characteristic that expresses the feel, nuances and highlights of natural wood, with variations in tone and grain to be expected with differing species.
Acoustic – Varying perforations available depending on the necessary acoustic absorption/ reverberation.
Size: 1220 x 2440 mm x thickness
Joints: Open/ with horizontal jointing profile: 8 or 10 mm width.
Air gap: 25 mm or as advised by Building Control
Fixings: Parklex Facade has four different mounting systems: Exposed fastening system with screws or rivets, Hidden fastening system with caps, Hidden fastening system with hanger system and Hidden fastening system with adhesive.
