LION BoardsTM are high-quality hardboards from Finland. They are manufactured almost entirely from natural wood and take advantage of by-products from the wood processing industry in nearby areas. LION BoardsTM are safe for both human health and the environment, are very strong and have excellent processing properties.

The fully engineered boards are PEFC certified, giving you the assurance that Lion Boards™ come from fully sustainable sources. They carry the highly valued M1 certificate, proving that LION Boards™ have low chemical emissions when used in building interiors, and helping to improve indoor air quality. With zero added formaldehyde, LION Boards™ are one of the safest panel products to work with – and to live with.

LION Boards™ can often be reused or recycled if required, and as it is produced from natural products, it is biodegradable and can be burnt without releasing any toxic fumes.

You can choose from the standard 4’x’2’ and 8’ x 4’ board sizes, but LION General™ is also available to order in easy to handle 4’x’3’ and 6’x 4’ for those smaller jobs and in 9’x’4’ and 10’x 4’ for those larger contracts.
