Physical / Mechanical Properties - Durapalm Palm Paneling


5/8” x 6” x 48” 19mm x 152mm x 1219mm


Deco Palm paneling is laminated at various elevations to give it a three dimensional texture. The palm is then fastened to a plywood backer board for support. There is an overlap along the length and at the ends of each panel to create a seamless appearance. The surface is treated with a light oil/wax finish to give it a natural look and feel.


The Deco Palm panel installs easily horizontally or vertically. The overlap seams allow for an easy install with glue and pin-nail technique.
