Choose your Substrate  

Lighter, tougher, flatter, harder, and stronger are the key attributes of States ArmorCore® substrates. For applications demanding superior performance, ArmorCore® is just what you're looking for. ArmorCore® combines the low weight and high strength advantages of veneer cored panels with the superior flatness and higher density of MDF.

1 Step Veneer, or Conventional Construction is the least expensive way to manufacture a veneer core panel because all laminations including the face and back veneers are assembled and pressed at one time. The drawback to this method is that imperfections in the core veneers can transfer to the surface as high or low spots on the face and back.

Particleboard is perhaps the least expensive core for hardwood plywood because its particles are less refined than MDF, yet it is perfect for many applications. It is smoother and more uniform than veneer cores and available in Class A fire ratings as well as no-added-urea-formaldehyde constructions. Particleboard is generally available 1/2" or thicker. While some hardwood plywood producers manufacture their own particleboard, most outsource this core material.

There are two options on Oak, three on Maple, three on Cherry and two on Mahogany. Thicknesses include 1/4" MDF core and 3/4" ArmorCore. Face grades are A Cherry and Mahogany and B Maple and Oak.

Wall Paneling  

Wood wall paneling provides a natural, beautiful and durable surface for any interior. Large format panels (4′ x 8′) provide a fast and relatively inexpensive decorating solution.


Ideal Uses

Primarily designed for residential applications, wood wall paneling is also popular in cabins and recreational vehicles, as well as in commercial buildings like offices, churches, restaurants and retail stores.


Finish Options

Wall paneling is available in natural, finished or unfinished wood veneers. Finished panels utilize our proprietary NOVA ultraviolet-cured coatings, making them as durable and resilient as they are beautiful.



Paneling is 48″ wide by 96″ high. In application, paneling is frequently cut to 32″ or 48″ high wainscoting.


Available thicknesses, depending on the species and pattern selected:

  • 5/32″
  • 1/4″
  • 3/8″


Pattern Options

States currently offers forty individual wall paneling products. Selected panels may be flat, but most have a decorative pattern grooved or beaded into the surface.


Available Species

  • Bamboo
  • Birch
  • Cedar
  • Cherry
  • Oak

Stain colors run the gamut from light to dark. Certain paneling products use individual veneer components between each vertical groove to achieve a more authentic “plank" effect called random matching.
