Rockwood has been manufacturing decorative mouldings for the past 17 years. Most of our products were manufactured specifically for the furniture trade. About 9 years ago Rockwood made wall cladding with a specific outdoor application. This required our products to be robust, weather proof and UV resistant. This was achieved using a coating called Jesmonite and crushed granite powder mixed with a strong bonding agent. Rockwood now boasts a decorative panel combining our industrial strength polyurethane with an all weather coating. Our cladding is a lightweight hard wearing panel that is an exact replica of brick, slate, wood or rock finishes. Not only is the Rockwood cladding 100% water- proof, it acts as a thermal insulator and an acoustic board. The Rockwood Polyurethane that is used in our wall cladding panels was originally developed for military use. This formulation used in our panels provides a high density flexible inner core without losing the lightness of polyurethane. Polyurethane is commonly used as an insulator. Rockwood cladding is fire retardant, does not melt or serve as a combustion base: it is a stable product that does not perish, resists acids, salt water and industrial gases.   Handling and working with the Rockwood cladding panels is easy. The product is light weight, solid, easy to cut and can be adapted to fit any space. The panels are cleverly designed to key together like a puzzle, making it easy to install. Rockwood manufactures both indoor and outdoor panels. They look particularly good to cover country cottage walls, patios, revitalize a lounge or living room. Rockwood cladding panels are absolute copies of any accent design, period or building theme
