Sets offer easy ways to panel a wall

MDF profile manufacturer W.Howard has launched two Wall Panelling Sets – Slatted and Shaker – as part of its expanding Wall Panelling range.

The Oak Slatted Wall Panelling Set enables the user to add a slatted screen feature wall to any room. Each set contains eight slats, which together can cover up to 0.5m of wall space, with a suggested 20mm spacing between each slat. Each individual slat is 15mm thick and measures 42mm wide by 2,400mm long.

The slats comprise a stable MDF core finished with real wood oak veneer, giving the same look and feel as solid timber with all the benefits of MDF.

Every slat has its own unique characteristics and a slight colour variation to provide the natural finish associated with timber, while also being strong, dimensionally stable and with no warps, defects or knots to contend with on site.

If required, the natural Oak veneer can be stained or painted to match any room’s existing décor, or to create a standout feature wall in any space. The slats can be fitted quickly and easily using either adhesive, or a hammer and pins, whichever is quicker and easier.

Meanwhile, W.Howard’s Shaker-style wall panelling has been designed to add a simple, Arts & Crafts style to any home.

Each Shaker board is supplied the same length to be cut to the exact size required. This lets tradespeople create either traditional Shaker squares, or a more contemporary rectangular design.

The individual boards comprise of a dimensionally stable MDF core finished with a White Foil Wrap, which can also be stained or painted any colour on site to match the look and feel of the room.

Each set contains six boards, fitted using either a hammer and pins, or with adhesive. The boards are 12mm thick and measure 94mm wide by 2,400mm long.

Phil Tissington, Managing Director of W.Howard UK, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing our latest two Wall Panelling sets to the market. The current design trend for wall panelling is an exciting way to create a stunning feature wall in any building, and our MDF set makes it quick for tradespeople to transform any area.”
