decorative panelling as the glue used for interior suffers less colour
deterioration on the external veneers due to a lower setting point for the
include wall and ceiling linings, acoustic panels especially for schools,
hospitals, commercial and public buildings, partition screens and display
panels. It is ideal in the most critical applications such as entrance areas
and exit corridors especially those used for emergency exits in case of fire.
Exterior Hoop Pine uses an A bond glue, dark in colour, to hold the
plywood lamination together. It carries an F17 stress grade and is suitable for
semi exposed applications.
