What is Decopanel?

Decopanel is the product group comprising veneered panels. The HPLT pressing procedure (High Pressure Low Temperature) used by Decospan guarantees the best quality for any type of panel. This unique method is the result of many years of experience in press technology and veneer processing. When ordering a veneer panel, it is important that the right base and backing are selected. This is explained in the drawing below.

1 Top layer: Chosen veneer sheet

2Board: Choice of Chipboard, MDF board, Block board or Plywood in a range of dimensions and thicknesses (see pages

3Backing: Decospan always recommends adding a backing to your veneered panel. The backing also needs to be the same thickness as the veneer sheet on the front. This gives the panel the maximum stability. To choose the right backing please find hereunder an overview:

  • Choice of 3 quality grades: Architectural, Classic, Commercial
  • B-quality: same type of wood as the veneer chosen for the front but in a lower quality. Rest sheets are possible and sapwood to a limited extent.
  • C-quality: same type of wood as the veneer chosen for the front but without any aesthetical value. Sapwood may be used to a limited extent. Open defects are permissible but limited.
  • Mill’s choice: for applications where the backing of the panel is not seen, whatever suitable wood may be used to stabilize the panel. Sapwood and open defects may be used without limitation.
  • Paper: for some applications, you can choose paper as the backing. This does mean that warping will be possible, for which Decospan accepts no liability.

Uniqueness and the most superior quality levels

Decospan stands for uniqueness and the most superior quality levels. You should therefore only rely on boards that are marked with the Decospan hallmark on the sides. That is the only way to be certain of the best quality. The stamp also gives the production date, so that every board can be traced unambiguously.

This is how Decospan aims to stand out from the crowd and guarantee the quality ! All Decospan veneer panels are presanded with grain 120. It’s the processor’s responsibility to sand the panel in function of the required finishing technique.

Chipboard

These are high-quality base boards that are made of wood chips. Veneered chipboard panels are a versatile basic material with a good price-performance ratio. This material is mostly used for a range of furniture and kitchen applications.

The Decospan Pure Wood Charter also lets us guarantee that our panels are produced with wood from sustainably managed forests. FSC® and PEFC™ certified panels are also available from Decospan.

MDF board

These are high-quality base boards that are made of wood fibres. Very finestructured wood is used as the raw material, producing a very uniform board that is extremely suitable for fine interior work.

Block board

A standard block board is a panel with a solid wood core, which may then be glued and overlaid with a cross grain rotary veneer or with chipboard or MDF. We generally use pine for the core, but can on request also deliver block boards with a poplar core.

The specific product structure used for block boards means that the finished product may be labelled as 'solid wood'. It takes screws almost as well as solid wood, and other working parameters are as good.

The HPLT pressing procedure* used by Decospan guarantees the best quality for any type of panel. It produces perfectly flat panels with no visible glue.

Plywood board

A plywood board is made of an odd number of cross grain rotary cut veneers. The weight bearing strength of plywood makes this panel excellent in regards to bending strength and screw-hold ability. On top of the covering veneers we glue a decorative veneer chosen in step A.

The Decospan Pure Wood Charter also lets us guarantee that our panels are produced with wood from sustainably managed forests. FSC® and PEFC™ certified panels are also available from Decospan.
