Multipanel Asks the Industry to Re-think MDF
Multipanel, the UK’s leading bathroom wall panel brand, has asked the industry to re-think MDF with the recent change of its wall panel core.Order samples
Multipanel states that the exterior-grade MDF used for its best-selling bathroom wall panels is not only equally as high-performing but is also more sustainable than the birch plywood timber previously used.
Having upgraded the material in order to address supply chain issues caused by the ongoing war between Russia and the Ukraine, and to maintain a completely sustainable manufacturing process, the decision was made to transition to a high-quality, exterior grade MDF. This industry-leading decision means Multipanel is able to maintain its commitment to using only Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified materials and also combat supply chain issues as the panel core is now sourced locally from the Republic of Ireland.

Multipanel has partnered with Medite, the supplier of exterior MDF. Medite MDF is made from sustainable wood products. MDF consists of 40% wood chip and 60% by-product. Each range boasts some of the most environmentally efficient building materials on the market.
While the catalyst for changing the interior of our wall panels from birch plywood to an exterior MDF core was the illegal war in Ukraine, we have seen many benefits from making the change and we want the industry to understand the advantages of Exterior grade MDF over traditional birch plywood.- Managing Director at Grant Westfield, the makers of Multipanel
