MEDITE SMARTPLY, leading supplier of sustainable OSB and MDF panel products, is partnering with award winning social enterprise Goldfinger Factory for its ground-breaking new stand at Ecobuild 2017.
The tatami, a mat that is used in many Japanese houses, is still used in Japan for measuring houses and rooms. The size and lay-out plan of the tatami mats were also the inspiration for the Amsterdam based architect Julius Taminiau when designing and building a floating house to live and work in. The sizes of the tatami correspond relatively well with the standard size of 244 x 122 cm of today’s panel material. In order to use the panel material as cladding for a floating house an extremely durable, waterproof material was required. Therefore the architect chose MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME. This acetylated MDF is waterproof, and sets itself apart through dimensional stability and extreme durability.
MEDITE SMARTPLY has been highly commended at the Sustainable Energy Awards 2016 in the large energy category.
With the Glastonbury Festival having drawn to a close for another year, the most iconic festival on the planet remains true to its roots as a sustainability pioneer event that effectively balances human activity, resource use and minimal environmental impact.

SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT was specified to withstand the worst of the elements to provide durable, aesthetic protection during construction of a multimillion pound grandstand at Bath Racecourse, Britain’s highest flat racing venue. Located 230 metres above sea level, the course is often affected by strong winds, making SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT the ideal choice as a long-standing safe hoarding for public and site workers alike.
SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT has provided an attractive, sustainable and durable hoarding to protect site workers and the general public during building renovation in Central London. A total of 300 sheets of the highly-engineered board were installed around the construction site in Wilton Road, Victoria, to form a hoarding which not only protects the public during building works, but caused minimal disruption due to its speed of installation.
SMARTPLY, the smart, cost-effective, sustainable OSB, has moved to an even higher plane in terms of quality, design and innovation. Following feedback from customers, SMARTPLY OSB is now available in its flattest, smoothest most accurate form yet.
Medite SmartPly provided a stunning showcase at this year’s Ecobuild by providing DISCOVER, the event’s show-stopping social centrepiece, as well as promoting its unrivalled range of quality sustainable wood panels.
