MEDITE SMARTPLY have supplied their MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX) for luxury private residence ‘Casa Blanca’ on an exclusive Caribbean island.
As moisture in the air can reach up to 82% in the wet season (July-Nov), Mark Reeve, Director of the Wardrobe and Bookcase Company Ltd. who manufactured and installed all fittings and doors, chose MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX) for the project.
An acetylated MDF panel, MTX is water resistant and can be used outdoors in all weather and humidity levels for up to 50 years above ground.
This FSC® certified wood panel can be used in applications and locations that were once restricted to other materials such as plastic or metals and is just as smooth.
MEDITE SMARTPLY ensures that MTX offers architects, designers and joiners a whole new material to work with that also has zero added formaldehyde, making it safe for homes and sensitive areas.
Mark said: “The guarantee that MTX could be used in contact with water for up to 50 years was my initial reason for choosing it. I thought, the humidity will stand no chance against this!”
“It’s also brilliant to cut, both by bench saw and CNC router, giving a clean edge, and its surface is completely smooth, perfect for spray painting. All items for the project were cut by bench saw, with the exception of the shutters, which required a CNC router.”
Over one hundred panels of MTX were used throughout the house, between the storage furniture, a media centre, the shutters and all interior doors, which are built from two panels of MTX layered together.
