Digital Printing Solutions from Geaves

Client: Building Additions

Location: Robert Blake Science College ‚ aSecondary school in Bridgewater, Somerset, England.

Brief: The school, which has specialist Science College status, has 645 students between the ages 11-16.

Geaves were contacted to produce digital print melamine faced panels for 26 movable walls with the image running over the whole width of the 15 metre wide wall, 203 panels in total.

The images also needed to be designed with shadow gaps on the panels, for the movable system to function without disrupting the image.

The educational images included the Periodic table and historic landmarks and figures.

Geaves Surface Solutions produced the panels cut to size and supplied in wall sets, for them to go into the metal work system.

Installation deadlines were met, for when the school reopened after the holidays.

Digital print


In a bid to continue to offer our customers eco-friendly surface solutions, we now offer a range of ECOBoards, made from straw, a waste by-product.

The high quality panels are manufactured from agricultural residue fibres that are milled to form flakes. The flakes are then mixed with a specially designed formaldehyde-free resin and are compressed under high temperature to form a stable homogenous panel.

The ECOBoards can be used in virtually all applications such as insulating properties, furniture and interior decorating, sound absorption and where moisture resistant material is needed.

Some of the benefits you’ll see from ECOBoard are:

  • Better screw strength than MDF
  • 100% biodegradable
  • 100% durable
  • Homogenous single layer that can be screwed, nailed, painted and veneered
  • Healthy working environment created and less dust
  • Density from 200kg/M3¬†soft board to 800kg/M3
  • Negative carbon footprint

The ECOBoard material is also available in homogeneous quality door cores and doors, solid compound doors and flush doors which can be delivered to your specification.

BiOnda decorative boards

As well as adding to our G-Lam collection, we’ve also added a new design to our range of decorative boards.

BiOnda is a bi-colour HDF panel that’s 16mm thick, consisting of two colours.

The tri-dimensional carving creates a standout effect suitable for a feature wall or to add depth to an area.

The superficial layer shows the colours below and all of these can be custom matched making the products individual and personal.

On demand we can prepare custom carvings, so for more information please reply to this email or call us on 0044 7703 327285.
