Description

MEDITE EXTERIOR is an MDF panel developed specifically for use in a wide range of external applications and gives all the design freedom of interior MDF. Developed at MEDITE’s world class MDF facility in Clonmel, MEDITE EXTERIOR broadens the range of the MEDITE family of high performance MDF products.

Applications

MEDITE EXTERIOR is used as a substitute for softwood, hardwood, plywood, plastic and metal in non-stressed applications. It can be used for a wide range of external applications including: external signs, shop fronts and external woodwork including fascias, exterior mouldings, door parts - raised and fielded panels, garden furniture components, exterior display stands, marine craft interiors and sports score boards. MEDITE EXTERIOR is suitable for conditions in accordance with MDFH (Option 2) as defined in EN 622 part 5. Boards of this type are suitable for use in Hazard Classes 1, 2 and 3 environments of EN 335-3 provided an appropriate coating system is used. To ensure durability, MEDITE EXTERIOR must be adequately sealed on all surfaces and edges with an exterior grade coating system. Direct contact with soil must be avoided. As with all natural products, linear movement will take place if MEDITE EXTERIOR is exposed to changes in relative humidity. Therefore, as a precaution, an expansion gap of 5mm per 2440mm is recommended.

Performance

MEDITE EXTERIOR has been proved to withstand extremes of weather through an extended programme of exposure tests. MEDITE EXTERIOR complies with the V100 test method as per EN 1087-1. In this test, the pieces are boiled for two hours prior to testing for internal bond strength. MEDITE EXTERIOR complies with requirements for general purpose boards for use in exterior conditions (type MDF.H, Option 2) according to the product standard developed by European MDF manufacturers.

FIRE RATING

 

MEDITE EXTERIOR is expected to achieve a fire class rating of Euroclass D within the European classifications.
