5-Piece Door

Moldings (9 Ft long) that are cut into 4 metered pieces (sizes vary), added with a center panel insert 1/4 to match colour of molding. The doors are glued, and have a mortise and tenon joint.

Acrylic Tops

Made of synthetic material that is durable, easy to clean and maintain. This sturdy material resists scratches and stains well, does not mildew in most environments, and can usually be repaired if they become chipped or cracked.

Melamine

Made out of paper, the core is particle board. Thermally Fused Melamine is made by laminating a melamine coated paper saturated with aminoplastic resin to a wood-based composite panel, such as particle board or fiberboard, using a combination of high temperature and pressure. The result is a durable surface that requires no additional finishing or protection. The process is very similar to that used for high pressure laminate, except it uses a board-product backing instead of phenolic backing.

Particle Board

Particle board, also known as chipboard, is an engineered wood product manufactured from wood chips, sawmill shavings, or even saw dust, and a synthetic resin or other suitable binder, which is pressed and extruded. Particleboard is a composite material.

Polyester

NEXGEN™ is a GREEN, paper-based, decorative laminate veneer. Décor paper and woven cotton backer are impregnated with polyester resin and thermally fused under heat and high pressure. The result is a laminate that is an exact match to high and low pressure products (such as melamine board from Tafisa, FB and Uniboard). This engineered decorative laminate offers superior surface propertes to that of other laminate products. NEXGEN laminate is very robust and performs similarly to wood grain TFM (melamine) and vertical grade High Pressure Laminate. Colours and Finishes of NEXGEN™ Laminates make it nearly impossible to differentiate from real wood.
