Supaline decorative panels from Supawood Architectural Lining Systems were selected by MCA architects as a suitable lining for the busy circulation area of a new building at Covenant Christian School in Belrose, NSW.

Being an environment for children, key requirements for the design team included finding a suitable lining product that would comply with the highest BCA fire hazard properties as well as withstand high impact treatment in addition to allowing easy maintenance and retaining its aesthetics well into the future. Safety was a major factor, therefore the linings needed to have a completely concealed fixing system and be VOC free.

Seeking a lining product that would fulfil all these priorities without compromising on aesthetics and design outcomes while also working within limited school budgets, MCA found Supawood’s Supaline decorative panel system as the ideal, yet economical solution.

Supaline decorative panels have been used throughout the corridors in an imaginative and fun chequered pattern created by combining the warm look of Supawood’s Supafinish Hoop Pine with contrasting silver. The finish is consistent in grain, shade and gloss levels and is applied pre-delivery in such a way that the panels have zero VOC emissions.

By choosing Supafinish for the finish, the architects were able to achieve a stunning design, complete with the assurance of high durability, impact resistance and easy maintenance.

All Supaline panels were supplied with a completely concealed fixing system for rapid on-site installation and in Supawood’s FR MDF group 1 substrate, which meets the highest BAC fire hazard regulations.

This project demonstrates how Supaline panels in Supafinish can meet all the functional priorities and demands of designing a school environment with superb visual appeal.
