Queensland-based easycraft has been enhancing both traditional and contemporary spaces since 1986, when they commenced manufacturing an alternative to the original timber vertical joint (VJ) planks used in the original Queenslander home.
Renovators wanted to keep the authentic look of the original Queenslander, but the cost of installation, knotholes, splits, dust and air leakage through the joins were all recognised as shortcomings of the timber planks. So, easycraft created and produced a product to replicate the look of the VJ and Beaded timber plank profiles, made from MDF (medium density fibre) board.
Over time, new profiles have been introduced, such as Regency and Ascot, and contemporary profiles such as Easygroove and Easyline have also been added. Today, the Easycraft range adds flair and function to every setting and offers the flexibility to create charming bespoke finishes for renovations and new builds.
Easycraft panels are manufactured with a consistent density, thickness, width and length. They are high quality, and free from defects, inconsistencies and imperfections.
They are also strong. Easycraft panels are 300% more impact resistant than standard plasterboard and 50% better than impact-resistant plasterboard. This makes them the ideal choice for residential settings – bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, family rooms, hallways – as well as in environments subjected to high traffic and harsh ware, such as commercial, hospitality, government and retail spaces. They also achieve high levels of acoustic performance.
Easycraft panels come pre-primed and are installed three times faster than installed and primed plasterboard, or twenty times faster if you consider plaster sanding and drying time. Easycraft panels are approximately the same cost as supplied and installed plasterboard, yet offer a superior outcome.
The easycraft easyjoin system allows one easycraft panel to join easily and seamlessly to the next. The panels and joins will also stand the test of time and movement.
All raw materials are produced by Australian manufacturers. Processing and painting happen locally.
Thanks to easycraft, designers, architects and specifiers now have a flexible choice. Easycraft offers profiles that cannot be attained with traditional lining manufacturers. They make it possible to match period styles or designs, or to create a contemporary feel.
The Easycraft team has a long and successful history working with designers, architects and specifiers to achieve great outcomes. No project is too large or too small.
