Any successful business will listen to its market and develop a product that is both needed and desired. As a company involved in the design and manufacture of a building product Formplex is no exception, especially as they strive to meet the needs of an increasingly discerning public that won’t sacrifice quality for price. ExcellBoard surpasses all these expectations in the new home market.

The increase in demand is due to its design, durability and ease of maintenance and versatility. This all Australian solid u PVC Building Board perfectly complements Australian living. From beachside coasting to contemporary sophistication, from heritage appeal to architectural design and country homesteads, Formplex developed a product that will cope with and guarantee against harsh Australian climate conditions.

Excellboard installs straight onto studs (steel or timber frame) and looks like freshly painted timber without the upkeep associated with painting. Excellboard does not fade, rot, warp or chip, so it’s ideal for coastal, country or urban dream homes. ExcellBoard is fire retardant and is inherently difficult to ignite. It ceases burning once the heat source is removed, making it perfect for use in high fire risk areas.

ExcellBoard has a warm appeal and is reminiscent of a freshly painted timber home, but retains this fresh look for generations to come. Excellboard offers long lengths and a light woodgrain finish that isn’t over glossed and static. Excellboard can also duplicate the appearance of weatherboards and give home owners the character of a weatherboard home that is aesthetically pleasing, but also blends into the environment without the constant maintenance required of timber.

Formplex works with many builders, designers, architects and directly with home owners. They have been in the business for 30 years supplying and installing maintenance-free cladding and giving clients the comfort of a 50 year guarantee. Some of their builders prefer Formplex to install Excellboard giving their clients the added bonus of the 50 year guarantee; however they also offer our builders the option to install the product themselves.

This is a simple process where the plans can be emailed or simply sent into the Formplex head office. Their qualified staff will quote directly off the plans and send them back within a couple of days completely costed, and will also send you a complete installing manual.

The beauty of ExcellBoard is perfect for so many applications from your dream home to commercial properties such as retirement villages, house boats, upmarket resorts and sports clubs just to name a few. From architectural design to your perfect country homestead, they also cater for two-storey homes and upper storey extensions. Excellboard looks great combined with other building products and complements render and a variety of brick features.

Keith Murphy founded Formplex 30 years ago with a philosophy to give clients an Australian product that doesn’t require painting, was well insulated and could withstand harsh Australian conditions. The all Australian company became a household name by having cladded well over 60 000 homes.
