Chicago IL's Premier Provider of Phenolic Wall Panels
Phenolic panels bring compelling aesthetic and nearly limitless design possibilities to next generation architectural claddings.
Phenolic Panels are a decorative, high-pressure compact laminate (HPL), utilizing a blend of up to 70% wood-based fibers and thermosetting resins, manufactured under high pressures and temperatures yielding a highly stable, dense panel with good strength-to-weight ratios.
Ventilated facades are more than a design style; they provide energy efficient, long lasting properties resulting in a variety of advantages. Phenolic panels are weather resistant and color stable, solid and sturdy, and offer low maintenance as the dense HPL surface limits dirt accumulation.
This perfect blend of durability and longevity, along with a broad range of colors, finishes and tactile effects enable concept to meet solution.
