Listed below are the timber and board options available for our products to suit all situations and budgets.

UNPAINTED MDF 18mm - Painting is required!
Products made in the unpainted mdf are for indoor play areas only. Painting is highly recommended to coat and seal the product and is required to stay within the guidelines of our warranty. No primer is required. The surface is completely smooth ready to apply 2-3 coats depending on the colour of paint. Best applied with a roller for a nice even finish or a spray gun. We've found Taubmans Endure exterior water based paint in semi gloss or satin offers a nice finish and is easy to wipe over. It is a water based paint with low odour. Paint your cubby outdoors and leave to dry in the sun prior to bringing indoors. A light sand around the edges is recommended after the first coat with a 180 grit sandpaper. Allow paint on all panels to completely dry and set outdoors prior to assembling inside. 
Recommendation only: Taubmans Endure Exterior Water Based Paint. Please check with a paint professional as another option prior to painting.

WHITE SATIN BOARD 18mm - Paint is optional, the edges are raw.
Products made in the unpainted white satin board are for indoor play areas only. White satin board has a fine coat of white on both sides of the panel with an mdf centre. A lot of people are preferring the natural look, however the edges are raw. Our painting recommendations are the same as the unpainted MDF. Alternatively, seal just the edges using a smaller roller. Roll the exposed edges with a clear water based sealer/varnish to seal the timber.

TREATED PLY 17.5mm - Paint or Stain
LOSP treated ply is for outdoor use only. The LOSP (light organic solvent preservative) is used to protect the timber from termites. Painting or staining to seal the timber for outdoor use and protect the timber from the weather elements is highly recommended for longevity of your product. The timber is CD grade with imperfections in the wood, sanded smooth ready to coat. 
Recommendations: Intergrain stain or Taubmans Endure exterior or Dulux Weathershield exterior water based paint.
