Why PlankPanels-HPL

FunderMax, founded in 1890 by Karl Funder, is the global leader in phenolic compact exterior cladding panels for rainscreen application. FunderMax Max Exterior F-Quality incorporates a patented, double-hardened acrylic surface, combined with industry leading UV protection to offer the perfect solution for exterior facades.

FunderMax panel is made from compressing sheets of kraft paper under high-intensity pressure and temperature into durable, strong sheets which are flame retardant and weatherproof. The kraft paper is manufactured from the by-product of sawn timber sourced from sawmills which are certified to be in compliance with international laws for sustainable forestry. FunderMax only uses FSC certified paper. From there, the waste products (such as cut-offs and sawdust) from producing the compact panels are again recycled in the FunderMax eco-power plants, producing electricity and thermal energy to thousands of households. From start to finish, every stage in producing the Max Exterior panels is 100% environmental friendly. FunderMax has also achieved the highest level of code compliance in the USA with an ICC Evaluation Services Report.

PlankPanels-HPL™ featuring FunderMax Max Exterior F-Quality is a rainscreen system designed for fast installation for a lower in-place cost than traditional High Pressure Laminate rainscreen systems. PlankPanels-HPL is available in all FunderMax Max Exterior F-Quality colors, offering a wide range of possibilities with over 115 colors to choose from. PlankPanels-HPL featuring FunderMax come in one standard length: 161.422. Sold in bundles of 6 pieces, each pack of PlankPanels-HPL contains the required number of clips for installation, so there is no guessing at how many clips are needed.
