I'm looking to machine some interior acoustic panels for home similar to Decortech in Auckland provide, I have contacts for the machining and also for the acoustic felt baffle behind but just need to suss out the best source of laminated or veneered MDF sheet - does anyone have any experience here?
So far I've tried Impeys (retail of Prime Panels), and Laminex (wouldn't sell direct). Impeys are quoting $166.32 + GST for their 13mm FR MDF with a white laminate, or $121.23 + GST for their non fire retardant MDF, I explained it was for a wall panel so only one side will have a good facing, the reverse will be cheaper laminate.
Gut feeling is this is too pricey and likely retail where I'm looking for trade pricing. Then again this could be what it costs. Does anyone have any experience here?
