Timbmet, one of the UK’s leading distributors of timber and timber-related products, has extended and strengthened its panels offer with a series of new product introductions from leading international manufacturers including Finsa, Kronospan, Greenlam and Egger.

Among the new additions to its portfolio is The GreenPanel® range from Finsa, now being exclusively distributed in the UK by the company. It is an ultralight structural board consisting of two thin MDF faces and an interior also made of thin MDF Fibranor, arranged in an innovative grid-like pattern. The result is maximum resistance with minimum weight.

Specially developed for applications requiring the demanding combination of broad thicknesses, low weight, high stability and high resistance, it can be easily adapted to suit the most demanding projects. Suggested applications range from home furniture, worktops, tabletops, ceilings, wall panels and partitions, to caravans, boats, thick flooring, stands for fairs, shopfittings and interior decoration.

Currently Timbmet is stocking the GreenPanel range in two sizes: 38 x 2440 x 1220mm; and 50 x 2440 x 1220mm.The products can be lacquered, painted, coated with Finish Foil, HPL, PVC or veneered.

More choice
At the same time as enhancing its offer with the Finsa range Timbmet has expanded its Kronospan Express melamine-faced boards stockholding and added two new door size laminate ranges from Greenlam and Egger.

Kronodesign Trends 2014-15 from the expanded Kronospan Express range of wood-based panels are now available for fast delivery nationwide. The 13 new decors are all offered on 18mm MFC with matching ABS edging also available.

Kronospan’s top end Mirror Gloss collection is also now available from Timbmet with 20 durable, scratch-resistant, light and colourfast decors that include 14 colours, four wood designs and two fantasy decors, produced with high quality melamine film for decorative use.

As an alternative to Mirror Gloss, Timbmet offers DecoGloss, a super high gloss acrylic finished board available with matching edgings. Carefully selected grades of polymer ensure DecoGloss has an excellent scratch resistance quality. DecoGloss panels have been tested and approved using PUR hot melt adhesives. It is ideal for use in kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and furniture applications.
