"This is the first time we have used Zenthe® and their 'Veneer Batten system'. They have been easy to deal with and visited site a couple of times to ensure they supplied the required amount and to aid our guys installing the system. The system itself is reasonably easy to install and looks great!"
Philip Mitchel, MCL Construction Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor, Director.
FR MDF/Timber Veneer Battens
Another new office building for Napier, built by MCL Construction, supports the local rugby team Magpie colours being black and white. The Tennyson Street entrance houses Zenthe® American White Oak timber veneer on MDF 50mm x 50mm battens. The battens are lined from the foyer, wrapping around the lift shaft and following the staircase to the third level.
The installation of the ZPF (panel frame) onto the precast concrete allowed for ease of installation of the ZBC's (batten connectors) onto the ZPF. Pre-fabricated battens were then cut to size onsite, ZBI (batten infill) fixed into the rebate and simply clicked onto the ZBC's by MCL.
