Plywood & Wood Panels

Plywood stocks are extensive and one of the most comprehensive in New Zealand. Thicknesses vary from 2.7mm to 32mm and sheet sizes vary from 1200x1200mm to 3100x1500mm - including standard sheets of 2400x1200mm as well as 2700x1200mm and 3000x1200mm. 

Inventory includes marine, construction, engineering, decorative and architectural grades, ranging from very high face grades to seconds and rejects and including a diverse range of durable hardwoods as well as NZ Radiata.  
Natural Timber Veneer Panels  are manufactured by pressing leaves of Natural Timbers on to standard sizes of plywood or MDF substrates. This produces ideal decorative features and walls for shops, boats, homes, and commercial buildings. There is a good range of natural timbers available including,  Rimu, Kauri, Oaks, Beechs, Mahoganies, Cherry, and more.

Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP) comprises two aluminium outer sheets, sandwiching a polyethylene core.  This combination gives excellent structural strength and with its pre finished painted surface makes this innovative panel ideal for many uses.  A range of 4mm thick sheets with pre finished colours is stocked including; white, red, black, blue, green, yellow, and silver.  ACP’s are widely used in the signage, transport, shop fitting, cabinet making, and decorative building segments. Increasingly, it is being used in the construction industry as a wet wall lining and as a clean surface for utility areas.  
MDF and Particle Boards of various sizes and thicknesses are also distributed.


Sign & Light Industrial Panels

Sign Ply, is made of a quality plywood substrate with medium density paper pressed onto one face, providing a ready to prime/paint surface.  The back face is pressed with a higher density resin impregnated paper, sealing it from the weather. 
SignGloss, a value added Sign Ply, Trade Mark Registered, is distributed exclusively.  SignGloss is Sign Ply finished with a dual coat urethane high gloss paint system.  Once fully painted under this system, the panel is sealed off from the weather and is then ideal for outdoor signage.  SignGloss has been in the market for many years and signs erected 20 years ago remain standing and unaffected by the weather today.
Corflute/ Plastics/Foams and Acrylics are also distributed by Plywood City to the sign and light industrial manufacturing markets.
