IGNITING ARCHITECTURAL VISION

NEWS RELEASE - AUSTRALIA APRIL 2024

Screenwood is proud to announce the launch of MODULO® Group 1 interior tongue and groove lining, an innovative extension to its bestselling MODULO® Group 3 range.

 

MODULO® Group 1 presents interior architects and designers with a cost effective, linear lining solution – pre-finished in NAVURBAN™ decorative surface film for ultra-realistic woodgrain interiors, NAVURBAN™ Silken, NAVURBAN™ Elements or custom powder coating.

 

“We specifically designed MODULO® Group 1 to provide top performance in the highest fire rated environments without compromising aesthetics,” says Cameron Nelson Screenwood’s Founder, Director, and Head Product Engineer. “Its technical engineering ensures the same market-leading versatility as our core MODULO® range, empowering the exploration of dynamic sculptural interiors that push the boundaries of what’s possible in contemporary design.”

 

New MODULO® Group 1 is available in over 30 low VOC, UV-resistant premium NAVURBAN™ finishes. As a result, customers have greater freedom to mix pre-finished Screenwood and NAVURBAN™ products across their interior projects, ensuring seamless surface colour matching for a superior, consistent aesthetic.

 

“MODULO® Group 1 is made from Aluminium. It’s hollow, lightweight design belies its remarkable strength and durability,” continues Cameron Nelson. “Like all our Screenwood innovations, we designed this product to simplify the lives of designers and builders. It is easier to cut, carry, and curve, and is faster and more cost effective to install – there’s no need for expensive installation and proprietary systems.”

 

MODULO® Group 1 is pending Global GreenTag certification. It is designed for interior environments where fire safety is paramount, including hotels, clubs, retail, hospitality, education, corporate, aged care, healthcare, and multi-res developments.

 

Proudly manufactured in Australia, the new range extension joins Screenwood’s growing portfolio of trusted decorative and acoustic architectural innovations, including PANELSSTIX® and SOUNDLINA (PAT. PENDING) – the world’s first to market perforated architectural acoustic wall covering.

 

MODULO® has been selected by leading interior architects, designers, and builders for prestigious projects, including the world-class, award-winning Allianz Stadium,

 

MODULO® Group 1 is available in Arc, Batten, and Flute profiles in 2.7-metre, 3.6-metre, and 5.4-metre lengths. Customers can explore more information about MODULO® Group 1 or order high-quality samples by visiting the Screenwood website. Alternatively, they can contact Glen Osmand at Glen@screenwood.com.au or call 02 9521 7200.

MODULO® Group 1 Aluminium is available pre-finished in a choice of over 30 premium NAVURBAN™ decorative surfaces (including NAVURBAN™ Silken, Elements, and ultra-realistic woodgrain).

  • Superior, consistent colour matching across pre-finished Screenwood and NAVURBAN™ product surfaces.
