Unitex has a proud history of partnering with Channel Nine’s ‘The Block’ Television series.
From early days featuring Unitex’s flagship finish, Uni-Rock, to feature walls in Black Italian Granular Marble Textures, and more, Unitex has been chosen for use on The Block year after year. With an audience in the millions, its important that products used on The Block stand up to the intense scrutiny of the viewers. If a product fails, or doesn’t produce an amazing result, in todays climate of Social Media, a companies entire reputation can be quickly damaged. This also reflects on the series itself.
Probably the most famous Unitex feature has been the polished concrete effect renders used as feature walls throughout most Block Series. This finish, known as Uni-Rock or ‘glassface’ for its smooth polished appearance, has now been duplicated in a new, more flexible product, known as Tanami. Like Uni-Rock, Tanami can be used on masonry substrates, however Tanami can be used on almost every wall type imaginable. Not only that, but Tanami comes in a range of 14 colours. With the choice of finishes, Unitex has the best of both worlds.
In ‘Fans vs Faves’, Unitex’ superior cladding system, Baseboard, was used to quickly construct exterior walls, where old-school brickwork would not have been possible in the timeframe allowed. Baseboard not only allowed a quick install, but also is far superior to brick cladding due to its insulation factor values, ease of use and lightweight nature. (Baseboard was also highly used on The Block Triple Threat, The Block 2016 biggest Rooftop Terrace)
