Technical Specs

& Finishes

Our innovative panel board system allows us to create architecturally-designed dream homes for ordinary kiwis. Contemporary design with good aesthetics, yet still maintaining an excellent living environment that is airtight, quiet and warm.

 

Good design is flexible, which is why Modbox designs are modular. Use of specific standardised panels means the size and use of your home can be changed to suit you, without every detail having to change. So not only is our building process more streamlined, so is our design process. You can choose the layout and size without running up crazy architectural bills - we would rather you put that money into your home, not a blueprint!

What makes us special?

 

SUSTAINABILITY

At Modbox, we aim to use products that are energy efficient, help reduce environmental impact and are engineered with high quality whilst providing you with a home that will be comfortable and affordable to run. Panelboard is produced locally from the Aupouri forest which was planted as a way to prevent erosion of the sand dunes in Northland, eventually becoming a large commercial forest.

 

EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT

Panelboard is a 3 layered panel with a wood strand core sandwiched between an MDF outer "skin". The result is a clean lined panel that has high impact resistance products. The dimensionally stable core provides superb load bearing and screw holding, and the MDF surfaces give a smooth finish for painting or overlaying (no gib stopping needed!).

 

FAST TO CONSTRUCT

Panelboard walls are cut with onsite efficiency in mind.

All walls are numbered to a corresponding numbered floor plan and are stacked in order so minimal onsite lifting is required.
