We’ve had a lot of questions regarding whether Easycraft VJ Panels are suitable for wet areas. Manufactured from 9mm MDF board, we love the resilient nature of the Easycraft “EasyVJ” Panels, and the fact that they come pre-primed. These MDF boards are not, however, suitable for a wet area.
The good news is that Easycraft do manufacture a product called “Easyclad“, which is suitable for internal wet areas, such as bathrooms and laundries. Easyclad is a 9.5mm-thick board made from a combination of Australian hardwoods known for their durability and low-fibre swell characteristics.
The other good news is that like the Easycraft VJ, the Easyclad boards come pre-primed and ready to paint!
Easyclad boards are also suitable for semi-external, undercover use. We’ve used them to line the ceiling area over our upstairs deck on the Toowoon Bay Reno.
When selecting finishes for a renovation, ensuring there is a good flow between spaces is important. One of the ways we’ve achieved this in our Toowoon Bay Renovation is by ensuring there is a touch of the VJ profile in each room. Easycraft made this easy to achieve because the Easyclad product is available in every profile – so no matter which Easycraft profile you choose, there is a wet area option to match.
