Handiply® Garage Ply

Attractive, tough and impact resistant for the rough and tumble of the modern Kiwi lifestyle, Handiply® Garage Ply is an internal lining panel suitable for applications where strength and durability is desired.

Panels are untreated and feature a CD surface finish (face may contain surface filler) with a ‘V’ groove profile running along the length of the sheet at 100 mm centres.

The panels are available in either square edge or with a tongue and groove profile edge.

Garage Ply is not suitable for use in wet areas or where the use of structural plywood (such as wall bracing) is required.

Where structural plywood is required use only Ecoply® or Shadowclad® branded plywood.

Sheet Layout

All edges of square edge Garage Ply must be supported.

For tongue and groove Garage Ply the tongue and groove joint does not require support — all other edges do.

Surface Coatings

Where used as an internal lining, Garage Ply can be left uncoated or applied with common coating systems, including clear coatings, penetrating stains and acrylic paints (including film forming stains).
Note: Sheets may contain surface filler.

Where a high visual appearance is required the use of plywood with a higher visual surface grade such as Ecoply Grooved Lining is recommended.
