Frequently asked questions

Is it available in a variety of finishes?
EASIpanel Tongue & Groove and Raised & Field comes in a standard mid-brown to allow you to stain, wax or varnish the panel to look like wood, or paint it in a finish to fit in with your design scheme
Is it easy to cut?
Because it is manufactured from 6mm MDF, it is really easy to cut with an ordinary hand saw
How do I attach the panels to the wall?
Simply glue the panel with a strong ‘No Nails’, ‘Liquid Nails’ type glue
Is it possible to cover my walls, floor to ceiling in EASIpanel?
We are unable to produce a panel any taller than 5’ but what we suggest is that you use a 3’ panel up to the dado height, attach a dado moulding and then use a 5’ panel to the ceiling. Alternatively, you can use a 5’ panel and introduce a picture rail moulding or small shelf and then use a 3’ panel above that to the ceiling height
Can I use EASIpanel in my bathroom?
Yes, because the panels are manufactured from moisture resistant mdf, it is perfect for use in a bathroom and can be used as a bath panel, splash back or to box in pipe-work
Do I need to use specialist MDF paint or primer?
It is not necessary to use specialist paint or primer, 2 coats of either paint or primer should cover the MDF adequately

Is EASIpanel good for the environment?
MDF is a good choice if you are looking for something that is environmentally friendly. MDF uses a much higher percentage of the tree it is sourced from because it uses “leftovers” and waste from wood processing. Wood requires the disposal of imperfections in the tree, while MDF uses more of what would be considered rubbish in traditional planking.
