PlankPanels™-HPL is an architectural cladding system featuring Fundermax® Exterior F-Quality High-Pressure Laminate (HPL) material, prefabricated into interlocking planks and paired with in-house engineered rainscreen installation options. Fabricated PlankPanels are sold together with all necessary attachment clips, with pre-finished vertical hat channels, and color-matched fasteners available for certain system applications.
PlankPanels-HPL opens up numerous design options to architects and designers by enabling a flush plank, shiplap look on architectural facades, while benefiting from the fire resistant nature, broad finish options, and long-term exterior performance of Fundermax Exterior HPL phenolic panels. Its primary application is exterior architectural facades and design elements that can either dominate or enhance a building’s facade design, as well as high-end residential applications.
FunderMax, founded in 1890 by Karl Funder, is the global leader in phenolic compact exterior cladding panels for rainscreen application. FunderMax incorporates a patented, double-hardened acrylic surface, combined with industry leading UV protection to offer the perfect solution for exterior facades.
FunderMax panel is made from compressing sheets of kraft papers under high-intensity pressure and temperature into durable, strong sheets which are flame retardant and weatherproof. The kraft papers are manufactured from the by-product of sawn timber sourced from sawmills which are certified to be in compliance with international laws for sustainable forestry. FunderMax only uses FSC certified paper. From there, the waste products (such as cut-offs and sawdust) in producing the compact panels are again recycled in the FunderMax eco-power plants, producing electricity and thermal energy to thousands of households. Every stage from start to finish in producing the Max Exterior panels has been 100%environmental friendly, and FunderMax was awarded by the Austrian Government for best practices. FunderMax has also achieved the highest level of code compliance in the USA with an ICC Evaluation Services Report.
