Why Are Your Veneered Panel Grilles & Linear Systems More Expensive Than Solid Wood?

There is an undeniable trend amongst owners, designers, and architects toward the use of more environmentally conscious materials in their projects. Wood is a clean, environmentally sustainable, and versatile material that can add warmth to any room or design you may require for your project. Using wood has gained a lot of popularity as a design feature because it is safe, natural, reusable, non-toxic, durable, and recyclable.

With an extensive and successful track record, Rulon International offers a wide range of custom wood ceilings and walls that can transform any space with innovative designs that emphasize the natural beauty of high-quality wooden products.

When deciding on exactly what finish you want for your wood panel systems, there are a variety of different options available to suit your exact style and budget. Veneered systems such as Veneered Panel Grilles and Veneered Linear are beautiful but do come at a higher cost than solid wood.

Panel Grille Systems

A Panel Grille is an innovative and timeless panel system that is manufactured with perfectly aligned wood strips. The ladder-like system has equally spaced wooden blades that come in manageable and customizable panel sizes. This innovative panel system allows for endless customization options to fit your exact styling and design needs. 

Linear Systems

A Linear wood ceiling or wall system is designed with wooden boards that are connected by woodbackers in order to create a seamless panel that can then be suspended parallel to the floor or on a wall. This system is available in solid wood or veneer and can be easily customized to fit your exact design requirements.

What is Wood Veneer?

A wood veneer is a thin slice of wood that is adhered onto MDF or particleboard cores to produce a highly-stable wood appearance panel. These slices of wood can be incredibly thin but can give panels a natural, beautiful finish. This also allows you to customize your panels further to get the exact finish, color, or texture that you require.

Benefits of Using Veneer

Although using veneer increases the price of your wood panel systems, there are many benefits to using this material that more than justify its price tag.

Enhanced strength and dimensional stability

Using veneered panels does not just make your ceiling or wall system look better, they also provide rigidity and strength. Traditional substrates such as MDF or Particleboard are designed to be inflexible and maintain dimensional stability over time. Additionally, the hardness of these panels helps prevent damage from dents and dings. 

Greater customization

Veneers come in all kinds of colors and styles with each and every veneer being completely different. Even when sheets of veneer come from the exact same log of wood, each slice is unique.

Eco-friendly and non-toxic

Veneer is also a non-toxic way to customize and style your wooden panels. Unlike artificial products like laminates, veneers are completely natural and safe. In addition to this, veneers can also be easily recycled into wood waste.

Better utilization of wood

Veneer is made of extremely thin slices of wood. This allows for one log to have a much higher yield of material and less waste, making it a much more effective use of wood.
