HOMES THAT LAST
Durapanel’s structural panel system produces high quality, low maintenance homes that are BRANZ appraised to have a serviceable life in excess of 50 years in New Zealand. Prefabricated panels provide exceptional impact and dent resistance and durability for the lifetime of a structure.
Compatible with all common roofing, cladding and interior finishing materials, Durapanel allows you to accomplish the outcome that your clients desire for their new home.
Durapanel is a cost effective system that reduces on site labour and building materials. Time savings of up to 40% can be experienced with new build projects.
Durapanel replaces traditional framing and plasterboard with pre-cut and pre-primed wall panels that are simple to install and do not require highly skilled labour on site.
Once solid ceilings are installed, work can begin on the interior of the home while the exterior is finished. The ability for trades to work in parallel on a Durapanel house reduces the overall building timeframe.
Solid, knock resistant panels reduce dents and damage that commonly occur on site. Further eliminating rework and saving time in the build process.
WHAT OUR BUILDERS HAVE TO SAY
I’ve built conventional, I’ve built with block. I see this way as superior, it’s a quick efficient way of building. I’m more than happy to keep building them – I’d say Durapanel is the way to go
DAVE WALTERS, LB Practitioner, Northland
The reason we like Durapanel so much is that every panel is bracing, including the ceiling panels. We get a level 5 finish on the painting. It’s also super-fast. We’re probably finishing a house in 1-2 months faster than with a conventional build.
SAM LAMBORNE, LB Practitioner, Dundeal Building, Hawkes Bay
I have built a few houses using Durapanel and cannot recommend them enough. My own house that i built was using Durapanel and I am very happy with the results.
Durapanel houses are very easy and quick to erect making them very cost effective. The Triboard walls and ceilings make for a well insulated, air tight home that everyone is trying to achieve with modern homes.
Durapanel were excellent to deal with, supplying all fixings, plans and back up if and when needed. Even down to internal doors, jambs and wardrobe fit outs.
