Lightweight and thin. Belbien wigihs in a t 370gm per lineal m and is 0.15mm thick. The product used to renovate areas where weigiht or thickness is an issue and the low weight and thinness of the product ensures it can be repeatedly installed over the top of itself. One day a wood grain, the next day a metallic finish.

Quick to refresh / update. Once established and installed Belbien can be simply applied over the top of the last installation to refresh the surface. There are surfaces in the world today that have over 10 Belbien applications.

 

Why is a Belbien installation so fast and clean?

Belbien wall covering is the surface finish of choice when critical areas demand fast and clean installations. Belbien™ applies directly to existing wall and ceiling surfaces, adhering to laminates and other hard glossy substrates. There are no caustic odours from glues or solvents, and unlike paint or stain, Belbien™ is never wet. Extensive taping or masking of adjacent surfaces is not required.

Belbien™ wood patterns provide the look and feel of real wood without the dust and mess of repetitious sanding to achieve the desired effect. These advantages mean jobs are completed in a fraction of the time, minimising labour costs and site downtime.

Metal doors can be given a new look without affecting their movement or fire rating. With no demolition work required, elevators, doorways and emergency exits can be put back into use at any time, if required, during the installation process.

Why are the Safety, Fire, and Smoke Ratings so high?

Belbien received a “Class A” fire and smoke development rating. This quality makes Belbien the perfect solution for renovating lifts and other areas where strict fire and smoke development ratings are required.

Metal doors can be restyled without affecting their movement or fire rating. With no demolition work required, elevators, doorways, and emergency exits can be put back into use at any time during the installation process.
