MELAMINE (MFB)

70-90 Gram of melamine-impregnated decor paper is pressed to both the board’s surfaces at 200 degrees Celsius to create a durable, scratch resistant surface.

We have invested in our own Melamine press to give us the freedom to source colours best suited to the trends and needs of offices. Such as:

  • Grains that aren’t too planked or have a high colour contrast, but rather easy on the eye with an even colour gradient.
  • Colour grains that have a natural appearance, avoiding garish tints and hues that dates quickly.
  • We also looked for colours that can easily be paired with popular solid Melamine colours.

LAMINATE (HPL)

Our Evolution desking range can on request be quoted on and finished with a High-Pressure laminate that adds to the durability of the product.

EDGING

  • 1.6mm impact ABS & PVC edging
  • High UV and scratch resistance
  • Matching colour or clear glue is used for an invisible bond-line
  • A fast setting PUR glue technology on edge banding with high initial strength, a good elasticity at low temperatures as well as a good solvent resistance.

BIRCH PLY

The Shell Range is a range of hand-finished high-quality birch ply office furniture. We combine the latest technology and machine precision with the care and patience of a true woodworker.

The 5-axis CNC working centre creates the chamfered edge which exposes the layers of birch ply and the quality of the products.

Finished with a High-Pressure laminate that adds to the durability and modern appearance.
