New timber cabinetry product in three native species

ArmourCab by Big River Group is a smart new choice for cabinetry and joinery applications requiring durability, stability and impact resistance in a decorative hard or softwood finish, along with matching edge strip.

Building on the success of the company’s Armourpanel product, renown as Australia’s strongest cosmetic plywood for flooring, ceiling and wall lining applications, ArmourCab enables architects and builders to create cabinetry and joinery products in the same timber.

“We were consistently seeing our customers want to create joinery items from our Armourpanel due to its beautiful and unique look, but given its distinct strength is not an easy thing to do. So we decided to create the cabinetry version – ArmourCab,” explained Jim Bindon, Managing Director of Big River Group. “The end result is a stunning yet practical choice for appearance grade cabinetry and joinery applications in both residential and commercial projects.”

Like Armourpanel, the new timber is proven to tolerate extremes of heat and humidity, and resist shrinkage while maintaining a high-quality aesthetic. ArmourCab is available in a three native timber species – blackbutt and spotted gum for hardwood applications, or hoop pine for softwood following the launch of the distributor’s own range of hoop pine product earlier in 2018.

Being natural timber, every panel exhibits variations in colour and texture and ensures that every installation is unique. The panels are manufactured in Big River’s Grafton facility and are supplied uncoated for custom finishing. They are engineered from a 16mm moisture resistant MDF (MRMDF) core with a 1.0mm timber face bonded to each side to form a strong, solid and stable panel that is easy to work with. It is available in a range of standard panel sizes at 2400x1200mm, 2400x600mm, 2000x1200mm, 1800x1200mm, and 1200x1200mm.

Big River Group ArmourCab is available through the company’s nationwide distribution network across 13 of the major populous areas of Australia, including Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Illawarra, Melbourne, Hume (ACT), Adelaide and Perth.

“With an operating history of over 100 years, Big River Group has established itself as one of Australia’s manufacturers and distributors of timber and building products. This ongoing achievement is a clear reflection of our longstanding presence in the marketplace, strong service culture and technical expertise,” Bindon concluded.
