Further to the last post on our work with composite door off-cuts. Over the last year, we have experimented with various panel design prototypes in different thickneses & configurations.




Cabinz have been working with a large composite door manufacturer for over a year. 
We have re-used approx, 25-30 tonnes of materials that would have become waste without this service & been land filled, as it could not be recycled, being mixed materials of upvc & grp fibreglass. ( See pic 1) These have been used by folks for uses such as insulation & husky dog kennels.
 We believe we may have invented a new load bearing product, we are calling " METALCLAD"

Door side off cut strips are made of a composite of a solid upvc core with a grp fibreglass skin on 2 or 3 sides. 
In our research,  we have discovered that they fit comfortably within dry wall metal c stud / i-stud & tracking of 48 / 50mm, 92/94mm &  146 / 148mm. We have experimented with various configurations. This may possibly count as a new invention.
There are a few millimetres spare to allow for gluing or siliconing of materials. With a few screws, this forms a very strong beam upright, as the …
