Helping shopfitters to show their colours

British shopfitters are colourful, creative characters, and are becoming even more so:  it appears that sales of Valchromat coloured engineered fibreboard are soaring, according to exclusive UK distributor James Latham.

Available in 10 striking, vibrant colours, Valchromat is unique in that the colour runs throughout the entire board.  This is achieved by adding organic dyes and a specially formulated resin to the wood fibre before pressing.  Valchromat has become extremely popular within the UK shop fitting and furniture manufacturing sectors, and is also being used in the hospitality market where bold colours are used to make design statements.  It is also being utilised in the exhibition fit-out sector, in furniture, and in children’s toys.   

Valchromat’s time and cost saving features and include being quick and easy to finish as no edging is required, being moisture and UV resistant, and non- toxic.  The wood content of Valchromat boards is FSC®-certified and sourced from forest waste, residue from timber mills, and recycled pine.

Valchromat is available from James Latham in the following board sizes; 2500mm x 1850mm/1250mm and in 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 19mm, 25mm and 30mm thicknesses.
