Panneaux Leontine (formerly Leontine Van Leeuwen) has built a reputation around “steenschotten”. These wooden panels were originally used as drying supports in the production of concrete blocks. After 4 or 5 years of use, they are no longer fit for purpose and are recirculated on the second-hand market. This is a very cheap material – starting from 8 €/m² – although it requires pressure cleaning (and possibly sanding) after being received. It is used for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications.
It is possible to visit both of the company’s stock rooms, one in Wavre and the other in Ohey. A catalogue with the dimensions and prices is available online and regularly updated. Panneaux Leontine can deliver and give advice on the use of the products.
