Introducing Muuro: Interior wall & ceiling panelling with a modern architectural aesthetic
Product News | April 8, 2021
WHAT IS MUURO?
Muuro is an interior wall & ceiling panelling collection designed by Forté to address the demand for an interior panelling product with an architectural look that is straightforward, inexpensive, and easy to install.
Muuro provides an excellent alternative to traditional timber panelling and sarking products as its real wood veneer provides the same look at a more affordable price, whilst its engineered construction ensures that the product is structurally stable and will not warp or bow like solid timber products. It's long 2.7m lengths - with no shorts (unlike solid timber) - mean that you can achieve a seamless, join-free look when laying vertically on walls up to 2.7m high.
Add to this the fact that Muuro is supplied pre-finished in a range of colours, requires no further finishing after installation, and is quick and easy to install - we believe Muuro is the best solution to interior wall & ceiling panelling yet!
