San Francisco, CA – Pioneering bamboo interior finishes manufacturer Smith & Fong today announced it has reached a distribution partnership agreement with Stack Panel to distribute Plyboo® and Durapalm® architectural panels throughout Australia and New Zealand, according to Smith & Fong president Angus Stocks.

“Stack Panel has had immense success commercializing timber-based architectural panel and cladding products throughout Australia and New Zealand,” Stocks said. “We’re excited to bring Plyboo and Durapalm products to these new markets.”

Stack Panel will carry Smith & Fong’s full line of bamboo and palm architectural panels, including the award-winning Reveal™ and LinearSound™ Collections of carved wall panels, which provide dynamic texture with sound mitigation to commercial and residential interiors. These products will diversify Stack Panel’s existing product range of Western Red Cedar and Hemlock panels and cladding.

“We are extremely excited in representing such a market leader as Smith & Fong,” Scott Dawson from Stack Panel said. “It continues our commitment to using only sustainable products.  This, combined with Plyboo’s investment in ethical manufacturing of high quality and unique designs, is a story worth telling.”

Stack Panel’s products are all manufactured from sustainable and FSC®-certified timbers. The inherent acoustic properties of cedar make Stack Panel’s products ideal for use in spaces requiring sound dampening. This, combined with the visual impact and warmth of timber, makes Stack Panel products a valuable addition to any architectural space.
