ENVIRAWOOD’s prefinished veneer sheets were developed with input from leading architects, designers
and manufacturers who desired a visually realistic alternative to solid wood and wood veneer products.
The goal was to develop a cost effective alternative that provided a very durable, high quality finish
on interior furnishings and construction related products.
The natural beauty of wood was captured by carefully selecting the finest natural wood veneer sheets available for the Envirawood reproduction procedure. These reproductions are used to create an image layer which is permanently sealed between premium quality, plasticizer-free, green approved PVC sheets utilizing our state-of-the-art laminating process. The end result is a veneer sheet product that enhances the natural beauty of the wood species with permanent protection. A major advantage is the elimination of color variations as well as the sequencing and grain matching problems common with natural wood and wood veneers.
Next, the Envirawood R&D team developed a proprietary surface coating that provides a superior finish with unmatched durability. When the end product was complete, ASTM and ISO product testing verified the proprietary surface coating passed Class 1/A Fire Rating, FAA Fire Testing, Anti-Microbial and Anti-Fungal tests. The Envirawood product passed the Green Guard Institute testing and qualifies for certification and LEED Credits.
Architect and Interior Designer inquiries encouraged the Envirawood R&D team to develop additional products to replace non-wood surfacing products including HPL laminates and even paint. The product line quickly expanded to offer virtually any Solid Color, Solid Metallic Color, Custom Patterns like faux stones and abstract designs and of course all protected with the same durable, world class finishes.
Recently, we have incorporated manufacturing technology enabling Envirawood to fabricate veneer sheets with custom printed graphics, logos and artwork for a wide variety of applications. These graphics can be utilized alone or as an overlay with any of our other veneer sheet products. We can also incorporate different materials like wood grains, metals and solid vector artwork to create "exquisite inlays" not possible in conventional marquetry. This additional level of customization allows designers to create unique works of art for their most discriminating clients at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. However, unlike the other expensive to produce and easily damaged traditional images, Envirawood seals and protects the images for the life of the product.
Aftermarket products like pre-laminated panels, profiled doors, mouldings and numerous other components can all be created from our prefinished veneer sheets. This enables designers and fabricators a wide variety of options for cabinetry, furniture, architectural mouldings, interior doors and many others. Common product applications include interior designs in Healthcare, Hospitality, Retail, Entertainment, Commercial and Residential projects.
In the end, all of the initial objectives and many more innovative concepts of Envirawood’s visionary creators have been achieved and with amazing results! It is a “must see” product for designers and end users. Envirawood prefinished products will certainly save time and money. However, it is the exquisite quality of our products and unique finishes that will endure and be appreciated for years to come.
