Our pre-finished lining board collection is crafted from the Paulownia tree - a fast growing hardwood with an annual vertical growth of over three metres (comparable to Bamboo), therefore making it an incredibly sustainable solution.  Although classed as a hardwood due to its cell structure, it is extremely lightweight (300kg per cubic metre relative to Spotted Gum ~900kg per cubic metre) and boasts incredible dimensional stability - meaning it’s highly resistant to cupping. Paulownia has a stunningly straight grain and naturally blonde, making it ideal for staining and coating.

Due to these characteristics, Paulownia is one of the most versatile timbers we have; from historical ship-making to sporting equipment including surfboards, musical instruments, and aircraft. This is why Australian Timber Ceilings are passionate about Paulownia for ceiling and wall lining board instalments in commercial and residential environments across Australia.
