Blade Panels


Exclusive to Don-Bur, Blade panels are slim, lightweight, and extremely durable. They provide superior impact resistance and greater internal cubic capacity.

At just 7.5mm thick, Blade is a composite panel comprising an HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) foam core, faced with high tensile strength galvanised steel, and finished with a baked polyester paint.

Recyclable 2 HDPEBlade panels contain steel and HDPE, both easily recyclable materials.

Blade panels are highly resistant to punctures, dents, and corrosion. Under normal operating use, they will not gouge or splinter like plywood or fiberglass-reinforced panels (GRP). The plastic core does not absorb moisture, making the panel resistant to rot and delamination, which are common issues with wood-based products (such as GRP panels). The gloss-smooth Blade steel skins do not dimple, wrinkle, or pit with exposure to the weather.

The steel skin and solid foam core provide a superior fixing surface and, unlike other lightweight and honeycomb panels, are ideal for the application of Load-Lok and other components.

Due to the post & panel method of construction, heavily damaged Blade panels are far easier to repair or replace in the event of damage.  Each damaged panel can be replaced independently of the others, unlike a GRP panel which may need replacing in it's entirety.

Over 90% of all Don-Bur customers (both for new design and repeat orders) now opt for Blade panels, demonstrating their confidence in the product.
