Timber Ceilings & Feature Walls Made Easy

Responding to market demand for an easier way to produce timber walls and suspended ceilings, Modinex Group created Austratus. Our design philosophy and commitment to offering a game-changing panelling option saw us go right back to the drawing board to create a game-changing, off-the-shelf timber wall and ceiling solution.

About Austratus

With more than 30 years in the business, we’re in touch with industry demands. With this experience, the team at Modinex Group realised that the popularity of timber walls and suspended ceilings continued to grow and clients were searching for architectural timber statements more than ever.

However, restrictive budget, time and building constraints all too often limited the design potential of a project and rendered timber walls and suspended ceilings out of reach.

So clients were forced to turn to gyprock or ceiling tiles – affordable, fast to order and practical to install – but they lack wow-factor.

From this demand for a cost effective, easy to install timber system, the idea behind the innovative Austratus clip-on batten system was born.

We challenged our innovative design team to draw on their decades of practical timber experience and come up with an entirely new, state-of-the-art system that would change the industry.

And they did.

Our patent-pending, off-the-shelf system makes timber walls and ceilings fast to install, easy to work with, and cost-effective. Offering a range of stylish profile designs in Western Red Cedar, Hemlock and Aluminium, Austratus not only looks great, it’s affordable and you don’t need specialist skills to install it.

Austratus is a game changer, making it possible to add architectural style to your interior timber panelling projects, while still adhering to tight budgets and deadlines.
