Surround by Laminex: Decorative MDF wall panels

Surround by Laminex is a new decorative wall panelling solution that gives architects and designers fresh scope for adding contemporary texture and depth, through the play of light and shadow, to residential and commercial interiors.

The range includes eight profiles in a variety of design styles and sizes, each one crafted from medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and pre-primed, ready to be installed and finished with your chosen paint colour.

A highlight of the range is the selection of contemporary profiles, including: Batten 100, a modern, masculine take on classic timber panelling that features defined boards separated by deep, straight-edged grooves; Demi Round 40, a softly curved profile that lends itself particularly well to half-wall applications when finished with a dado rail; and Scallop 45, an undulating curved surface that will bring a luxurious feel to both modern and classic interiors. The profiles of the Surround by Laminex range work beautifully on their own but can also be paired together on a single surface.

Surround by Laminex also comes in two highly popular “timber board” profiles; Classic VJ 100 and Heritage 150 are equally well-suited to period and modern interior styles. Like the entire range, they’re adaptable to all kinds of applications, including hallways, bedrooms, living spaces, waiting rooms, reception areas, foyers and more.

Surround by Laminex is not just about good looks, as Sacha Leagh-Murray, the general manager of sales and marketing at Laminex, explains: “When conceptualizing Surround by Laminex, quality and ease of application were two key factors,” she says. “The panels are durable and hardwearing, whilst still being easy to install.”

The panels are simple to fix to timber, plasterboard, steel, brick or masonry wall surfaces, locking together with a tongue-and-groove system for an exceptional fit and finish. Because they’re pre-primed, the final step is to apply paint. The result is a highly attractive, impact-resistant wall surface that perfectly integrates with the rest of the interior space.

It’s important to note that the production of Surround by Laminex panels is consistent with the company’s focus on local manufacturing, aiming to reduce the impact of the built environment on our planet’s natural resources.

The panels are made in Australia from MDF that is produced at Laminex’s Gympie manufacturing plant using sustainably sourced local timbers. Local manufacturing allows Laminex to closely monitor quality and craftmanship.
