A modular lining system that doesn’t cost the earth

Eco6 is an extremely robust, hard-wearing and fire-resistant 6mm gypsum panel. Its outstanding technical performance and eco credentials make Eco6 a product that is suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects in the modular industry.

Eco6 Modular

Safe | Sound-resistant | Sustainable

Eco6 has been developed in the UK by Excel and Siniat as a superior and sustainable replacement for plywood in modular buildings. The innovative panels have a high-density glass fibre reinforced core, tough paper liners, and a range of decorative, washable finishes to choose from.

As well as being a high-performance lining product for new builds, the lightweight Eco6 is also ideal for modular refurbishments to overclad existing linings whilst improving the fire, sound and thermal performance of a unit.

Excel can provide fire assessments based on specific design detail on application

What is Gypsum?

Although gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral, Eco6 uses the gypsum generated as a harmless by-product of many industrial processes or from power station waste. This innovative waste product utilisation means that Eco6 can claim to be manufactured from 98% recycled materials.

What Our Clients Say

Garic specify Eco6 because, as a market leader, we have a responsibility to our customers to procure responsibly sourced key materials wherever we can. Eco6 enables us to eliminate tropical hardwood plywood from our unit linings whilst also providing many additional benefits to our customers, such as greater fire resistance, noise attenuation & thermal efficiency.

Eco6 is made in the UK and helps us to deliver on our commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of our site accommodation; we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Steve Ogden
Production Manager Garic


The product is easy to handle and fit in large quantities in our factory and is a preferred choice of many of our customers since we introduced the product as an option as it is strong and durable with good thermal and fire resistant properties when compared to other products.

Ian Ashworth
Product Manager Stackright


The Eco6 product has been a great addition to the specification of our fleet at Mobile Mini. Eco6 offers excellent thermal performance without the weight and density of the traditional 12mm plasterboard used in most eco situations. This makes our accommodation units warmer, lighter and easier to maintain.
