“I Just took delivery of the bench-tops and just wanted to let you know that the samples do no justice to the full panel – they are amazing!!!!!! Thank you so much for your help and guidance.” – David, Auckland 2016
Use them anywhere
Bamboo panels are ideal for any wooden application, from wall coverings and ceilings, bench tops and kitchen joinery to furniture, stunning staircases (including treads, risers, stringers and handrails) to doors, shelving and more – whether in the residential or commercial environment. The use of these panels is only limited by your imagination!
The panels are manufactured using advanced European Homag technology, and are cross-laminated to ensure long-lasting stability and durability. Panels are made from 100 percent rapidly renewable bamboo.
Every panel uses continuous bamboo; there are no breaks or seams across the surface of the panel. The edge offers a beautiful grain pattern that does not need to be edge-banded. The unique edge grain is a signature look of a Plantation bamboo panel.
Vertical or Compressed panels
Vertical bamboo panel – the outside surface of the bamboo panel is manufactured using vertical strips of bamboo laminated together, giving a striped, uniform look. The grain runs along the longest length of the panel.
Compressed bamboo panel – the outside surface of the bamboo panel is made of compressed bamboo fibers, giving a more natural, wood grain look. The grain runs along the longest length of the panel. A compressed panel is more dense and heavier than a similar sized vertical panel.
Choice of Finishes
The bamboo panels are unfinished, allowing you the ultimate in choice for finishes, whether it be oil, clear lacquer or stain. We recommend considering Woca oil – a high quality Danish oil with a range of all-natural, vegetable oil based timber finishes that enhances & protects the bamboo panel from within. Woca produces a “work-top” oil and waterproof “Diamond oil” (available in 9 colours) – see www.woca.co.nz.
Bamboo panels are easy to work with as they cut and finish to a high quality standard – and come in two colours, “natural” and “coffee” (where the bamboo has been cooked a little longer, caramalising the sugars, resulting in the slightly darker colour).

Create a unique statement
As seen in Madrid’s Barajas International Airport terminal, Plantation’s Ceiling Panels consist of five layers of vertical bamboo veneer and two layers of fiberglass, which have been pressed together to form a multi-ply plank. The individual veneer layers are pressed cross-wise to ensure stability and flexibility of the panel. The panels measure 2000 x 100 x 5mm and are available in Natural or Coffee colour. They are pre-finished with oil. Because of the flexibility of the veneer and fiberglass, the panels can be curved, creating a distinctive and inspiring ceiling, like no other.
To install, the panels must be screwed onto a frame. Please enquire direct to Plantation for more information on the available fixings.
The panel is impregnated with a fire retardant to meet very strict fire norms in Europe and the USA.

Plantation interior panels can also be used as ceiling panels. The panels can be laser cut with decorative designs to create a unique and natural look.
Combine the natural warmth of bamboo with the acoustic and decorative properties of perforations
Plantation bamboo panels can quite easily be made into top performing acoustic panels, adding value to any area that requires a high level of acoustic performance. With the appropriate acoustic blanketing applied, bamboo acoustic panels have the ability to absorb noise, without compromising aesthetics.
Bamboo is a natural product and the warmth and individuality of each panel creates a stunning look. It is an excellent substrate, with good natural acoustic properties, resulting in increased noise reduction. Plantation recommends Autex AAB 35-50 felt being bonded to the back of the bamboo panels to create high performing acoustic properties. The bamboo panel perforates and can be laser cut easily and smoothly to create a wide range of excellent designs to suit your taste. Finish with clear lacquer to enhance the natural, unique look of the bamboo or alternatively stain to incorporate the Acoustic Panels into your design scheme.
Pre-finished panels avoid the need for additional on-site trades after installation, saving on-site time and cost. Plantation will work closely with you to achieve the design, look and finish you are wanting for your specific environment. Our team can put you in touch with partners who can create the specific look you are after, creating high quality acoustic panels from the Plantation range of interior panel products.
Custom sizes, cut-outs for utilities, and negative edge details can also be arranged. Bamboo ceiling tiles can also be manufactured in either flat or perforated finish, with many laser-cut design options available.
