The freedom to create your own unique colours
Architectural creativity is all about the freedom of expression, and applying your skills to a project that will wow the world. ROCKPANEL Ply gives you the freedom to express yourself in any RAL colour you want.
Material and use
The ROCKPANEL Ply boards are produced from compressed natural basalt, a sustainable and readily available volcanic rock and bonded with an organic binder from which all ROCKPANEL products derive their unique properties. The products combine the advantages of stone and workability wood.
The ROCKPANEL Ply boards are primed with a high quality waterborne undercoat and are mainly used for applications along the roofline.
ROCKPANEL Ply is a sustainable alternative for Plywood

Paint advice for ROCKPANEL Ply
The ROCKPANEL Ply boards are primed with an undercoat from the wood processing industry, which you can finish with the colour coating of your choice. The paint solutions suitable for wood products should in principle also be suitable to finish ROCKPANEL Ply, provided that the paint manufacturer’s recommendations are followed. Always consult your paint supplier and the paint manufacturer’s maintenance instructions.

If you are looking for a truly unique façade with a personal touch, you have the option to engrave ROCKPANEL boards with your own creative design – corporate logos, text, graphic images – the only limit is your creativity! Designs can be made with a CNC router on a 10mm thick board (maximum engraving depth of 2mm). A further advantage of engraving on ROCKPANEL boards is that the engraved parts don’t need any additional protection.
Our boards are easy to handle on the building site, unlike many other materials, and therefore quicker and easier to install.
