Interior / Exterior Substrates  

Nantucket® BeadBoard is manufactured in three different materials, MDF, MRI- and MRX-

For interior or dry applications MDF, (medium density fiberboard) is used. As an industrial and commercial grade building material MDF offers stability, durability and an excellent surface for painting. MDF is easily installed using finish nails, screws or construction grade adhesives, and can be cut with any type of manual or power saw.

In exterior applications or wet locations MRX- is the material used. MRX- is a water resistant product ideally suited for exterior porch walls and ceilings, garage doors, and bathroom locations. This "exterior" product is very dense. MRX- has an excellent surface for painting and is installed using finish nails, screws or construction grade adhesives. MRX- can be cut with any type power saw.

Bead Profiles  

Nantucket® BeadBoard offers two distinctive bead profiles, the 'Standard bead' and the 'V-bead'.

The "V-bead" is the same bead profile found on historic wainscot and plank paneling. The 'Standard bead' is a custom bead profile that is larger and more pronounced than the 'V-bead' profile. Both bead profiles have their own advantages.

The 'V-bead' profile is an authentic scale reproduction of traditional wainscot. This allows the homeowner to add to existing wainscoting while maintaining a consistent visual effect.

The 'Standard bead' profile is manufactured to take advantage of the 4 foot width of modern building sheet good materials making it a perfect choice on new construction. Also the larger profile of the 'Standard bead' produces a sharper visual accent even after repeated coats of paint.

Fire Rated
Nantucket® BeadBoard FR™ products are manufactured from premium-grade fire resistant fiberboard. FR™ products suit commercial projects where fire rated material has been specified, and are ideal for a variety of applications, including ceilings, wainscot, partition walls, elevators, and store fronts.

With X-G Sheets the beading runs across the short dimension of a sheet. This is extremely useful for cabinetry, furniture, wainscot, and store fixture work.
