Apex Designer Panel is a stylish and versatile cladding system. The 250mm wide cover provides quick easy installation and combined with the simplicity of being screw fixed, this cladding saves on labour costs.

The concealed fastening system gives an aesthetically pleasing look. The panels simply interlock to give a smooth appearance and long clean lines.

Designer Panel is suitable for a wide range of applications such as fascias, wall cladding, ceilings and soffit linings. This means this profile can be used for both interior and exterior design applications. Designer Panel is equally attractive whether used vertically or horizontally. A full range of trims and accessories are available made to order.

Custom cut lengths to your requirements ensure wastage is kept to a minimum. Designer Panel is available in an attractive range of colours.
