MEDITE SMARTPLY reached the final at the Wood Protection Association Awards

  • 21.10.2020

MEDITE SMARTPLY was shortlisted in the Project of the Year category at the annual Wood Protection Association (WPA) Awards.

The recent acoustic panel fit-out project at the Stephen Perse Foundation School in Cambridge, UK was nominated for its use of MEDITE PREMIER FR MDF to create acoustic panels for the new, state-of-the-art sports hall. Approximately 530 MEDITE PREMIER FR panels were installed and were especially chosen for fire performance, acoustic performance, and sustainability.

“We were delighted to be nominated in the Project of the Year category at this year’s awards,” says Richard Allen, Sales Director at MEDITE SMARTPLY.

“MEDITE PREMIER FR Euroclass B & C are developed specifically for use where a Euroclass B or a Euroclass C flame retardant board is required under building regulations. As this project was located at a school, fire safety is vitally important. We are extremely proud to see what has been achieved with our products and we look forward to contributing to ever more fantastic projects in the future.”

Now in its sixth year, the WPA Awards is a popular event, celebrating the amazing achievements in wood protection technology and how it is a vital part of the timber industry.

The WPA is a not-for-profit trade association that looks to champion the use of timber as a building material by acting as a technical and advisory body to construction professionals, and by promoting and developing the technology that enhances the performance and value of sustainable softwood products.

The event was originally scheduled for April earlier this year but was pushed back as a result of the pandemic.

The winners were announced live via a virtual ceremony on Thursday 15th October 2020 at 1pm. For more details visit:
