Sustainable interior finishes pioneer Smith & Fong Co. today announced a new range of Durapalm carved wall and ceiling panel systems for 2020; the first of several to be launched this year.

Derived from the patterns and designs of Smith & Fong’s popular Plyboo Linear bamboo panel collection, the Durapalm products take on a deeper more exotic look, owed in part to the unique color and texture of the palm material itself. The dynamic look and feel as well as the rarity of palm interior products makes this exciting line perfectly suited to a wide array of commercial interior applications, including retail, hospitality and commercial office.

This range of eight includes the colors Mandalay, Desert, Darjeeling, Kashmir, Bitteroot, Simla, Colonial, and Rangoon.

“The palm look is hard to describe because it is truly in a class of its own. It is sort of at the crossroads of midcentury-modern meets tribal-tropical,” said Smith & Fong CEO Dan Smith. “It is really a striking aesthetic and enables a business or a homeowner to convey their message in a fresh, eye-catching medium.”

All Durapalm carved wall and ceiling panels are manufactured in the USA with imported and domestic materials. Panels are Class C fire-rated and surpass the requirements under CARB II formaldehyde emissions standards utilizing (ULEF) resins. Finished dimensions are 0.75”x47.75”x95.75”. Durapalm panels can contribute to USGBC’s LEED credits for Low-Emitting Materials and Biobased Materials.

Prime Certification and Inspection, a subsidiary of the United Arab Emirates – based Prime Group of Companies, is  the  first and only Philippine-based halal certification body recognized by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) and the only Philippine halal-certifying body authorized to  give certification for food exports bound for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

This follows new regulations implemented by the Saudi government last November 2020 stipulating that meat, poultry, and their derivative products can only be exported to the country if they have halal certificates issued by a body accredited and approved by the SFDA, which regulates food, drug, and medical devices both imported and domestic for the conservative Islamic country.  

With the approval of the SFDA, Prime Certification and Inspection serves as the only halal certifier in the Philippines with direct ties to the kingdom.  A leading quality and compliance solutions provider specializing in helping Philippine brands export halal products to Muslim-majority markets, Prime Certification and Inspection has certified 22 multinational companies and homegrown Philippine brands. 

Dr. Mary Jane Alvero – Al Mahdi, Group CEO, Prime Group of Companies, said: “Prime Certification and Inspection – Asia Pacific is proud to be the first and only halal certifying body in the Philippines recognized by the Saudi Food & Drug Authority. With the growing demands brought about by the rapid increase of Muslim populations worldwide, we look forward to providing the first step for Filipino brands to penetrate this growing global market.”
