Ocean Blue has brought vibrant colours to the shop fitting market.

Other applications for have been in stage flooring, marina construction, animal husbandry such as chicken hatcheries and horse stable partitioning.

Uniboard with it’s long list of benefits, such as screw retention, UV stability, machinability and rot resistance is forging a timber sheet alternative path were plastic sheet has never been.

Uniboard is a lightweight construction material made from recycled polymers and has entered the market to replace marine ply, plywood, MDF and craft wood. Uniboard can be used within a variety of applications such as shop fitting, signage and retailers. The strong solid skin material is lighter than most traditional construction materials due to the foamed core which reduces the weight of the product. Uniboard has closed cell structure that prevents water absorption, is UV stabilised to suit the harsh Australian environment and as such suited to many indoor or outdoor applications.

Uniboard is not only water resistant, graffiti and parasite resistant but is virtually indestructible. Choose from Uniboard’sbroad range of colours including Gum Green, Ocean Blue, Overcast, Black, Yellow, Red and Off White.
