Timber veneer used in timber panels makes for a quality genuine surfacing material that is used to liven up any interior. Their grain patterns stand out and come in many different amazing styles. Timber veneer can be used in many products such as an array of furniture, ceilings, walls, and cabinetry. In comparison to other solid woods, timber panels from veneers are the most affordable making it an extremely popular choice for homeowners and designers.
Another advantage that comes with using timber panels is their minimal footprint on the planet. One log of timber goes a long way when producing timber veneer. Roughly speaking an average of 841 square meters of the veneer is produced from every cubic meter of wood. This number can even be higher at lower thicknesses than 0.55mm making this material surface even more sustainable. Levels of sustainability get even more impressive when the veneer is bonded to a particleboard or MDF substrate with E1. Methods in which the wood logs are harvested also have to be done so in a sustainable manner, standards and certification programs ensure a level of sustainability with products around Australia. These include:
- The Australian Forestry Standard (AFS),
- The Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)
- The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification program.
