Q: What are Ribbed MDF Panels?

Ribbed MDF Panels are a decorative wall panelling that has been machined from medium-density fibreboard (MDF). The panels feature a distinctive ribbed (also known as beaded) design on the face.

Ribbed panels feature parallel rounded ridges/beads that run along the length, or width, of the board, to create texture and visual interest to the material.

Q: What is the difference between Ribbed and Beaded Panels?

Beaded Panels is just another name for Ribbed Panels. Personally, we prefer the latter term to describe our product.

Q: How can I use Ribbed MDF Panels?

Ribbed MDF Panels are versatile and can be used for various domestic and commercial interior design projects. They are often used for cladding walls, kitchen islands, decorative kitchen and wardrobe door inserts, and commercial bar cladding.

Q: Are Ribbed MDF Panels Moisture Resistant?

Yes, our Ribbed MDF Panels are Moisture Resistant. We only use the best quality MR MDF for each of our 3D Decorative MDF Panel products.

Using MR MDF ensures our panels are suitable for use in Kitchens and Bathrooms. It also makes the panels easier to paint with a lot less effort required to get a great finish.

Please note; Our Black Dyed Ribbed MDF panels, and Black Dyed Panel Products, are not moisture resistant and should be sealed all round before use in areas prone to moisture.

Q: What sizes are available for Ribbed MDF Panels?

CNC Creations offer Ribbed MDF Panels in a range of standard sizes based on full size 8×4, or 10×4, full size sheets.

Q: Can Ribbed MDF Panels be painted or finished?

Our Ribbed MDF Panels can be painted or finished to suit your desired colour scheme or design aesthetic.

We offer the option of raw (un-primed) or pre-primed Ribbed MDF panels. The raw un-primed boards will require sanding and priming at least twice before top coating.

The primed option is sanded before the first and second coats and only requires a light sand before top coating.

Whichever option you choose, we would always recommend a minimum two coats with sanding in between coats, to get the best finish.

Q: Can I use Ribbed MDF Panels for DIY projects?

Our Ribbed MDF Panels are suitable for DIY enthusiasts looking to add a contemporary and textured touch to their interior projects.

With a reasonable level of DIY skills, they can be cut, shaped, and installed with basic woodworking tools. Alternatively, we can cut to your panels to your required dimensions to reduce the amount of work involved.
