Veneer – Gustafs Standard collection

Surfaces – Veneer collection

Wood has a natural variation in structure and colour tone which ages in harmony with nature. The fact that wood is a natural material is an intrinsic aspect of its charm and attraction. Here below we presents our standard veneer selec­tion. It goes without saying that we do our utmost to fulfil requests for other veneers.

We offer two choices of genuine veneer, NATURE and GEMINI.
Nature veneers have all the lively variations and character associated with each species whereas Gemini® veneers offer an even colour tone and structure to achieve a more harmonious appearance.

Prior to delivery the panels are given a resi­lient and attractive surface finish. The finish is determined by the customer from a choice of lacquered, oiled, stained, pigmented or painted surface. Our lacquer is a 3-layer UV-cured process which is available in a range of gloss finishes. The lowest gloss gives the impression of a subdued oiled surface whereas the highest reaches almost a mirror-like surface.

    As wood ages its colour tone matures typically for the species.  Variations in colour tone and structure is a part of woods appeal. This too, is the case with veneer. Nature veneer is available in a wide variety of species and matures in colour tone with time and exposure to light. Most nature veneers can be purchased with FSC certification.

    Large areas permit a certain amount of variation where as smaller areas demand a more exacting match.

    *The major advantage with Gemini® veneers is their colour and pattern consistency irrespective quantity. The veneers are less photosensitive and do not mature in the same way as natural veneers. The colour tone is Therefore more stable over time. The collection consists of a number of chosen patterns which are inspired by their natural counterparts. The Gemini® collection even offers a selection of exotic wooden species patterns which have no negative environmental effect and come with FSC certification. Gemini® panels can be produced in lengths up to 2400mm.

  • Pigment

    A pigment can be used to change the colour tone of the veneer on Gustafs Panels (Not available on Gustafs Linear System). We have developed a four stage scale of white pigment for veneers. Since various species react differently to the process we recommend a consultation before proceeding with surface finishing.
