When Sydney’s Macquarie University needed to have its library refurbished, administrators saw an opportunity to create a more interactive learning space for their students. Making the most of a limited budget, they chose an AA structural plywood design that highlights the rugged charm of the material.
When the Kapitol Group was touted as one of Australia’s best places to work in 2021, the company wanted its new corporate headquarters to further live up to that reputation. By utilising Armourpanel® and Armourfloor® premium interior plywood, FA Mitchell’s peers at Big River Group helped turn the vision for Kapitol’s office design into reality.
Plywood can be a sustainable building material. But that’s only if it is produced, transported and used in safe and sustainable ways. So when you source plywood for your project, a question to always ask is: “How sustainable is this plywood?”
In addition, you want to ask yourself, “How do I choose and use plywood in a way that makes it more sustainable?”
To answer both questions, you need to first know plywood’s environmental impact during the main stages of its life cycle, from start to finish.
When it comes to building projects, selecting the right type of plywood is crucial to ensure durability and longevity. Two common options that often confuse builders are marine plywood and exterior plywood. When comparing marine plywood vs. exterior plywood, is one better than the other?
While both are suitable for outdoor applications, they each possess distinct characteristics that make them suitable for specific purposes. In this article, we will explore the main differences between marine plywood and exterior plywood, and guide you on how to choose the appropriate option for your construction needs.
When it comes to building projects that require plywood or other engineered composite boards, it’s important to ensure that your boards are cut precisely to the exact right dimensions. While there are ways to cut a few boards yourself or use a store operator, this is not desirable for building projects. You need commercial plywood or composite panel cutting services.
Your best choice for commercial panel cutting services is an industry operator with specialized equipment and significant experience.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of having your plywood or composite boards custom cut to size by a plywood industry specialist operator, such as FA Mitchell here in Sydney.
There are two terms for plywood that you can use for internal wall lining and ceiling lining: interior plywood and plywood cladding.
Whether arranged horizontally or vertically, plywood for internal wall lining emphasises the wall or the ceiling surface of a room and transforms its appearance.
Differentiating marine plywood from exterior plywood is essential for experienced builders. While they may appear similar, these two types of plywood have significant differences that dictate their appropriate usage.
This article explores the characteristics and applications of marine plywood and exterior plywood to help readers make informed decisions.
Mould on plywood is the bane of every construction project. If you’re the project lead or building manager for a new development, here is a quick primer on the prevention or minimisation of mould growth in any area that has plywood.
Plywood vs OSB: it’s the debate that builders have been discussing for years.
They are two of the most popular subfloor choices around. In terms of strength and durability, they give wood planks and concrete a run for their money. They’re also more affordable and readily available.
But between these two materials, which is the better option? Should you use plywood as your subfloor? Or should you go with OSB instead? Let’s find out.
Why is MDF a popular choice for construction projects? Because it’s a more cost-effective alternative to other timber products.
But did you know that cost is just one reason why more commercial builders now prefer to use MDF?
Read on to discover how you can stretch your building budget with MDF, along with four other reasons which make it a no-brainer for your next project.
