Hardwood Panels - ArmorCore®

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.

Veneer Cores  image

Veneer Cores

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.

Composite Cores  image

Composite Cores

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.

Wall Paneling image

Wall Paneling

Interior Wood Wall Coverings.

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.

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.

Paneling is 48" wide by 96" high. In application, paneling is frequently cut to 32" or 48" high wainscoting. Thickness is 5/32", 1/4" or 3/8" depending on the species and pattern selected.

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. The most traditional pattern is called Orangeburg. It consists of vertical grooves at 4-8-4-7-9-6-4-6 inches across the panel's face. The Mark V groove pattern is 7-9-7-5-4-7-9. Beaded surfaces on 1-1/2" or 3" centers are also very popular.

Available species include Bamboo, Birch, Cedar, Cherry, Kaudamu, Oak and Pecan and 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.

XTRA Atypical Sized Panels

Unique applications, requiring unusual thickness or lengths.

Thicker panels are used as shelving, countertops and in furniture and fixtures. Thinner panels are used as cabinet door inserts, drawer bottoms and panel skins.
