ST. CLAIR, Mich. -- Modified wood cladding and decking manufacturer Kebony has launched a line of shiplap paneling for interior applications, according to Kebony U.S. manager Andy Hehl.  

Traditional shiplap has been used for cladding for centuries, often employed for siding sheds, barns, and homes. Traditional shiplap has a groove cut into the top and bottom, enabling the pieces to fit together in a tight seal, giving the shiplap its distinctive appearance, with subtle horizontal reveals between each lap.

Kebony's new tongue-and-groove Nickel Gap shiplap is available in Kebony Clear, and initially is offered throughout the North American market. It comes in 6-inch (nominal) and narrower widths as specified. Kebony's traditional shiplap is available in both Clear and Character grade.

The company's global headquarters is based in Oslo, Norway, with production facilities in Skien, Norway, and now Flanders, Belgium. The Kebony USA team is located in St. Clair, Michigan, with local representation both on the East and West Coasts. See
