SmartPly ToughPly has been developed as a plywood alternative that has the ability to withstand harsh weather conditions without blistering or becoming damaged and unappealing.
Because of this, the project’s contractors, D&M Fencing, specified it for installation along the harbour in Blyth, Northumberland.
The ToughPly hoarding material is located on the inside of the metal fence that has been fitted to protect a renewable energy site.
ToughPly has been designed without the knot holes and core voids that are often found in plywood panels.
This allows for fixings to be made on the product face at any point.
The product’s surface does not need priming, providing a pre-finished base for the final painted finish.
SmartPly ToughPly has been manufactured to comply with EN300.
The product has also been FSC approved as well as CE Marked.
