Board Form Concrete Panels
Board form concrete panels beautifully combine the movement, depth, and rawness of both wood and concrete into one product. This unique finish is achieved when concrete is cast onto wood paneling or boards pre-set into the mold. The grain, knots, and other unique characteristics of the wood are transferred to the concrete element, creating this increasingly popular finish for exterior and interior wall surfaces.
The board form effect can be fully customized specifically to your desired design concept. The boards can be sized anywhere between 4″ to 12″ to perfectly match the scale of the space. The boards could be laid flat to create a more refined look or randomly offset to create deeper variation in texture and movement. Additionally, the seam dimension between boards can be spaced to further achieve the desired look. Alternatively, full sized plywood sheet can be used to create a more monolithic appearing concrete panel.
Features a rough grain wood texture with intentional gaps between planks to allow the concrete to seep through.
Features a medium grain wood texture with tight fitment of individual planks for a more subtle board form finish.
Features a full sheet wood grain to the full extents of the precast panel.
Concreteworks East offers our board form in either keyed or squared panels. Keyed panels use the individual boards within the panel to create dimensional variance along the vertical edges of the panel. This allows the vertical seam of adjoining panels to be almost completely indistinguishable. This panel edge is ideal for large wall spans that would require a layout of several panels but an uninterrupted look is still desired.
Squared panels have straight vertical edges as typical with paneling. Installation is easier with squared panels however a vertical seam between adjoining panels will be noticeable. On both styles of panel edges, horizontal seams are also typically indistinguishable as the depth variation between boards makes it difficult to notice the location of a horizontal seam.
