Decorative solutions

Choosing the best DesignerPly for your next project will be dependent on the application and the visual impact you are wanting to achieve.

DesignerPly range:

  • Hoop
  • Birch
  • Euro Poplar
  • Premium Grade Marine
  • Clear Powder Coated Finish
  • Limewash Powder Coated Finish
  • Colour Powder Coated Finish
  • Printed Plywood

DesignerPly offers solutions for many applications. To achieve a clear, light coloured natural timber appearance that can be tinted or kept in its natural state, DesignerPly Birch and DesignerPly Hoop Pine could be the best option.

For ceiling linings where weight may be of importance our light-weight DesignerPly is an alternative.

Where a tough surface is required, for high volume wear and tear areas or under external eaves, DesignerPly Powder Coated finish will be most suitable. Powder Coated colours available are: Clear, Limewash, White, Black, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Orange and Purple.

DesignerPly Acoustic panels can be cut to your specific designs giving a unique and practical panel to achieve creative designs and end results.

Our ForestOne representatives can assist with expert advise to achieve your design and make the specification process simple.

Take care in free standing applications

Plywood used in kitchen and cabinetry doors can present problems due to the nature of plywood which can be affected by changes in temperature and humidity causing plywood used in free standing doors or draw fronts to warp.

Important Note

Any plywood exposed to the weather or in wet or damp applications must be assessed for the particular end use and exposure, and may require additional processing, immunisation, surface finishing or preservative treatment.
