Falcon Panel Products  Falcon Panel Products Product Range


The popular Streply® range of high quality, reliable commercial plywood products appeals to a wide range of specialist end user and merchant customers. Streply® is manufactured by the South House Woods Group in Eastern China and distributed exclusively in the UK by Falcon Panel Products.
Streply® plywood has no tropical timber content, using 100% temperate hardwood for core and face content, sourced responsibly from indigenous Chinese growers.
Streply® is independently audited to ensure compliance with the European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR) on legal timber sourcing and is manufactured using an EN 314-2 Class 2 rated glue bond. Bond performance is regularly tested by UK accredited laboratories to ensure it meets the requirements of the Construction Products Regulation. Streply® is also tested for use in structural applications in 9mm and thicker sections as defined in EN 13986: 2004.
