Build Smarter with Superior Particle Boards in Melbourne
Particle Board is known as a wood panel that is exceedingly dense, affordably priced and versatile due to its core being filled with large particles and exquisite particles found within the sanded exteriors. As a result, it is also known as chipboard.
Particle Board is identified for its bonded strength and a more uniform material. As a result, it has a wide variety of uses, i.e shelving for sheds, garages, and applications where it is covered, but not to be used in areas that attract moisture, it also comes overlaid with melamine.
If you are searching for this versatile material within our quality range, we offer Standard Particle Board, Highly Moisture Resistant (HMR) and General Purpose Particle Board Flooring.
Highly Moisture Resistant (HMR) is the same as the standard version except that it is Moisture Resistant, (not waterproof). Applications for HMR are areas of high moisture, like kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. All of our board materials including HMR, are made from Pine, logged from managed and sustainable Pine forests, in Australia. The emission level of both is E0.

Your Project Deserves the Best Particle Board Flooring
Particle Board Flooring is a well-established and well-performed product in the Australian home-building industry. This wide use and acceptance of structural grade of the board have led to an increasing number of enquiries from engineers, architects and designers for commercial and industrial applications.
Particle Board Flooring provides significant cost savings through its economy and through lighter construction allowing reduced foundation costs. Installation times are reduced since dry trades only are involved.
Also, they are more comfortable for people standing for long periods and offer better-wearing characteristics than other flooring materials for wheeled traffic (tiny wheels) because of the dense surface layer.
Furthermore, it can be utilised for an extensive range of flooring coverings, for instance, ceramic, quarry, parquet and so much more.

Particle Board FAQs
The thickness of a standard particle board depends on a variety of factors usually on the manufacturer and its intended use. The most common thickness measured is 12mm – 33mm. Furthermore, it should be noted that the strength and durability of a particle board correlate with the thickness of the panel material. So, it’s important to select a particle board based on its thickness and specific usability.
A particle board is an engineered wood product bonded together from glued wood particles. Furthermore, it is smooth and has a consistent surface with different grades based on specific use. It is considered a relatively inexpensive wood material with great versatility for a variety of design applications such as furniture, wall panels, flooring and cabinetry.
Whilst particle board is made up of glued wood particles and MDF boards is made from bonded wood fibres. MDF is considered denser, robust and expensive in comparison but the particle board is both smooth and has a consistent finish for an inexpensive material.
It is not fire resistant and can be highly flammable.
A wooden particle board can vary on the basis of the quality, strength and grade of the board. Higher-grade boards are both sturdy and denser, whilst lower-grade boards are known to be weak in comparison. Furthermore, the strength of a board can be measured against external factors such as temperature, moisture and the specific adhesive bonding of the wood particles together.
