Residential Applications

Contours are perfect as a feature in a kitchen, bedroom, hallway, living room, dining room, bathroom, or laundry. Contours can also be used to clad joinery and interior doors as well as creating concealed doorways for a beautiful finish.

In high moisture areas, such as bathrooms and laundries, we recommend coating the lining boards on all faces and edges before installation.

Commercial Applications

Contours enhance an interior space and deliver a warm and tactile backdrop. They can be used to clad joinery, reception desks, counters and banquet seating as well as creating straight and curved feature walls.

Secret doors are a great way to add a practical and unique design aesthetic to your space. Porta Contours are easy to install with concealed fixings, making it easy for your hidden door to sit flush with the wall.

Suitable for Curves

Contours are suitable for curves down to a 1000mm radius. For tighter curves, down to a 300mm radius, curved wall beads are available for selected profiles.

As one of the biggest interior design trends, using Contours in curved applications visually softens the hard lines and sleek finishes of functional spaces. Rooms with a curved element promote traffic flow, reduce hard edges and corners while creating a more comfortable and beautiful aesthetic.

Beautiful Finish & Easy to Install

Porta Contours are suitable for vertical and horizontal applications and have been designed for ease of installation with a secret fix tongue and groove connection. They can be installed DIY by one person and fixed directly onto prepared plasterboard, timber, steel, brick, or masonry wall surfaces.

They can also be used in conjunction with any other Contours profile to create a unique design.

Biophilic Design

Timber not only looks good (and keeps on looking good), but it is also good for you. Natural elements, such as timber, can have measurable physiological and psychological benefits, making people generally happier and calmer.

Timber plays a major role in biophilic design. Seeing its grain evokes feelings of being in a forest, which is shown to reduce stress levels. Studies support the use of timber to reduce autonomic stress responses in people, making it a preferred material for biophilic design.

As the only renewable building material, timber is durable and can be used in a wide range of residential and commercial applications. If it’s properly maintained, it can last for hundreds of years.

Porta Contours are available in a wide range of timber species allowing you to select the perfect timber which best suits your space.

Sustainable & Responsibly Sourced
