Another component of the table tops is the edge. You can choose between real wood edges and ABS plastic-coated edges in linoleum colours.
Real wood edges are: Larch / Oak / Walnut / Multiplex / Fumed oak / Ash
The panel core is made of solid fir laminboard, with a poplar veneer coated with a very thin cover layer of MDF, providing excellent bearing capacity and stability flexural even in very large formats. The five-layer board core is produced from local woods by a Bavarian manufacturer exclusively for our table tops, and they are PEFC and FSC certified. For our reasonable Basic table tops we use a specific and stable E1 “Superpan” particle board, which is also PEFC and FSC certified.
More about linoleum
The name is made up of the Latin “Linum Usitatissimum” flax and “Oleum” for oil. Linoleum is very resistant to oils, fats and tar. Linoleum is antistatic and even slightly fungicidal and bacteriostatic to various microorganisms. Linoleum is heavy to normally flammable and typically meets Class C-fl in the European fire classification system, putting it among a class of other resilient coverings. Linoleum is not very puncture resistant and is not suitable for use in damp rooms. In addition, linoleum is very sensitive to alkalis and is chemically degraded by them.
