Standard on all Products
9 Ply Birch drawers with UV coating are standard on all items. Ultraviolet coatings have incredible durability and superior coating protection. Ultraviolet coatings contain no solvents and pollutants when cured. Ultraviolet curing is 100% environmentally safe. Drawers are constructed with steel pins and glued with rabbit joints.

Drawer slides are all full extension with ball bearing suspension, this provides for very smooth action, constructed with high-grade steels that is corrosion and scratch resistant, along with Danish tooling that improves tolerances for accuracy provides for better wear and extended life. Tested and passed all BIFMA and WIC tests.

Laminate Products
Laminate Furniture with hardwood edges is finished with our multi-step Catalyzed Conversion Varnish Finishing process. This brings out the natural beauty of the wood, resists alcohol, nail polish remover and many other chemicals.

The undersides of our laminate work surfaces are protected by a moisture-resistant "backer sheet finished to the same specs as the surface." 45 lbs. Particle board has much more density than typical commercial grade particle board providing the maximum holding strength for glue lines, screws & fasteners. This means that your furniture can provide the maximum durability during moving and the daily work environment without impairing construction.

Thermo-Fused Laminate is composed of multiple layers of paper saturated with resin, and finished with a printed surface. (In recent years, the quality of printing has become so good that it is occasionally hard to distinguish laminate from real wood.) These layers are pressed together under high heat and pressure, creating a solid, solvent and abrasion-resistant material.

Facts regarding laminate:

  • Laminate is one of the most durable materials available for work surfaces and requires little maintenance.
  • It is highly resistant to dents and scratches.
  • Laminate has a more consistent color and grain than veneer, making it suitable for settings where multiple desks will be placed side by side.
  • Laminate is easy to clean and is excellent for high activity areas.
  • Laminate has a look that approaches veneer, at a fraction of the price.

Veneer Products
Veneer communicates the ultimate in richness and status. Virtually everyone appreciates the deep luster and changing play of light that is inherent in real wood furniture. If you are shopping for "real wood" office furniture, you're probably looking at veneer in almost every situation.

vaneer-diagramOur veneer is laid over a particleboard substrate. Particleboard is a combination of small wood fiber chips, fused with durable resins. The ANSI Grade 1M# 45- pound board we use is the best available. Because of this durable substrate, veneer furniture resists warping and the possibility of moisture damage better than solid hardwood.
