FA Mitchell supplies a substantial range of cladding plywood to clients in Sydney and across Australia. We source our plywood only from renewable plantations. We also make sure that each product has a zero formaldehyde emission rating.
What is Cladding Plywood?
Cladding plywood is used for purposes of exterior wall cladding and is largely manufactured for this particular application. Treated to Hazard Level H3, cladding plywood has a strong resistance to fungus and insect attacks.
You can choose to have the H3 treatment applied either to the core or the envelope of the plywood. For envelope treatment, we apply the solution to the raw, after-cut edge to ensure the integrity of the envelope.
There are several benefits to using plywood as cladding. These include:
- Visually appealing
- Strong and highly durable
- Resistant to impact, moisture, and temperature changes
- More cost-effective and easily sourced than other materials
- Eco-friendly to use

Shadowclad is a variant of cladding plywood aptly suited for a myriad of architectural styles. Most builders use this cladding plywood as a standalone product. But you can also combine this with other construction materials in your final design.
It is a lightweight cladding but the lightness can be deceiving as it hides the strength of these cladding panels. For applications requiring prolonged exposure to weather, Shadowclad can come in an avatar that can be easily stained and painted.
If you’re looking for the perfect choice for internal areas, you can go for the untreated, clear coated variant of Shadowclad. You can also order the pre-primed cladding Shadowclad from us.
Endurapanel is a versatile plywood used primarily to enhance any kind of living space. It is very easy to install and gives the appearance of a conventional ceiling or slat wall. You can use it for covered external ceilings such as balconies and entertaining areas, home theatre rooms. You can also use it for restaurant ceilings and internal feature walls.
It has effective sound absorption properties which add an acoustic dimension to it. The timbered and tiled floors of homes in present times suffer from unwanted sound filtering. Using Endurapanel can help eliminate the nausea associated with unwanted sound emissions.
We offer Endurapanel cladding plywood made from only the finest Hoop Pine timber. We make sure that every product we give our clients has unquestionable quality.
