LAMELLA (SAWN VENEER)
Saw Cut Veneers are thin boards produced using sawing techniques, as opposed to veneer, which is produced through slicing. Although Saw Cut Veneers may appear similar to veneer, they differ significantly. Due to the process of their acquisition, Saw Cut Veneers have a structure devoid of internal cracks. Veneer, on the other hand, is obtained by slicing the wood. Subsequent veneer sheets are cut using a special knife. Prior to this process, the wood is steamed to soften it. However, this does not prevent the formation of cracks in the veneer’s structure.
Saw Cut Veneers are obtained through a process similar to cutting boards. They are cut using thin saw blades and are never bent or broken at any stage of the process, unlike veneer. As a result, Saw Cut Veneers are much better suited as a surface layer for floors and stair elements. They are more resistant to damage compared to veneer. Choosing Saw Cut Veneers for flooring, furniture, and stairs ensures years of trouble-free use.
