TREEFROG Veneer: A pre-finished veneer, TreeFrog showcases the rich, soothing and timeless beauty of real wood. It’s not printed, it’s not plastic: it’s real. What you see is what you get; a consistently beautiful sheet of real wood that applies as easily as a laminate. Because it’s HPL backed, TreeFrog is easy to fabricate. TreeFrog’s innovative process uses more commonly occurring and faster growing tree species, like poplar, to create the look, feel and warmth of exotic and oftentimes endangered tree species, without having to harvest threatened or old growth species. Additionally, water-based dyes that do not include heavy metals are used in the production process. There are many choices for vertical and light duty horizontal applications. Select patterns are also available unfinished on a 10 mil backer.

The result: striking shadows and color contrasts with very natural nuances. The “Chic and Pop” collection introduces vibrant overlays in classic colors to existing species. Oberflex is ideal for applications requiring a durable wood finish: hospitality, retail fixtures, health care, gaming , elevator cabs, doors, casework and millwork.

BROOKSIDE Veneers: Well known for its commitment to quality, Brookside is respected for its responsible approach to harvesting and processing wood products.

The resulting product is an extremely flexible veneer that is ideal for laminating to curved or flat surfaces. Braewood (prefinished) veneer is finished with a specially designed matte polyurethane coating. The process yields a durable, transparent coating which is resistant to water and heat. Each sheet is also post-formable. Both the Brookline and Braewood veneers simulate exotic and domestic species at a competitive price.
