Durapanel Systems was set up in 1994, with company director Ian Stewart being involved in the Triboard housing industry since 1991. Durapanel has been dedicated to the sales and development of Triboard housing and have recently expanded their operation with the purchase of property and building of paint booths and the purchase of machinery capable of cutting Triboard efficiently and accurately as well as being able to produce work that without this machinery could otherwise not. Durapanel is now at a stage where it could keep up with the demand of producing houses at a large scale.
Triboard is a 3-layered panel with a wood strand core sandwiched between an MDF outer “skin”. The result is a clean-lined panel that has high resilience and impact resistance and greater stiffness than other similar products. The dimensionally stable core provides superb load bearing and screw holding, and the MDF surfaces give a smooth finish for painting or overlaying. This innovative combination of smooth surfaces with inner strength makes it ideal for a wide range of internal structural and non-structural applications panel housing, structural walls, floors, fire rated doors and inter-tenancy walls, solid core doors, bracing panels, bench tops and shelving. Triboard is available in a variety of panel sizes, thicknesses and densities. Termite treated Triboard is also available for use in Australia, the pacific islands or anywhere where termites may be a problem.Triboard has an emission rating of E ZERO, the only timber panel product in New Zealand to have this rating.
Triboard is an environmentally friendly product that is strong, saves construction time, is natural and affordable and is available throughout New Zealand. Triboard is reusable and off cuts can be used as doors, shelves, cupboards and furniture, making it a cost effective and environmentally friendly choice as there is even less waste. Because Triboard arrives onsite pre-cut it requires a relatively low level of skill to erect. Because of the reduced wall thickness gains of up to 6% can be made on the internal space of a new home.
