What is Veneer? Veneered Boards Veneered boards use either a BisonBord or SupaWood substrate, surfaced with a genuine timber veneer. They are ideal for flat surface wood finishes that can be combined with matching solid timber moulded to shape. They offer an affordable solution to using solid timber. They are primarily used in upmarket applications such as executive offices and boardroom furniture as well as panelling or wall cladding. Veneered boards are supplied with a raw and unfinished surface, requiring a surface treatment by fabricator. Veneers Over the years, as demand has increased, using solid timber, in applications such as kitchens and office furniture, has become a costly affair. To still provide the look and feel of solid timber, but ease the expense of the job, veneered boards, which offer solid timber aesthetics at a fraction of the cost, are used. Available in the most popular timber species, veneered boards use a veneer layon, bonded to either a BisonBoard or SupaWood substrate and balanced with an appropriate backer. Species dependant, the veneer layons are either sliced or rotary cut and available in either Single or Double Face. Finishing Depending on the application, there are many finishes which can be applied. All finishes will slightly alter the original colour of the veneered board and are used to enhance the colour and texture of the wood grain. These finishes include lacquers - lacquers are generally applied by spraying and add depth and richness to the original color. Lacquers form a protective layer which lends hardiness and durability to the veneer.
