DuraTop™ Hardwood Panels by Columbia Forest Products.

Columbia Forest Products’ DuraTop™ Hardwood Panels are engineered to compete with solid lumber constructions. Fabricators will appreciate the durability of a thick “real” wood material that will reduce labor and material costs compared to solid wood applications. DuraTop panels are ideal for fine furniture, desk tops, bar tops, wainscotting and trim. This product will expand the versatility of 4′ x 8′ hardwood panels to a new market that may not have considered plywood before.

Features & Benefits

  • Thick faced real hardwood veneer. 1/15″ face is nearly 3 times thicker than standard production. Surface is suitable for hand scraping, distressing, wire brushing or even engraving. Thick enough to sand out dents and dimples or refinish multiple times.
  • Many applications. Used for a wider variety of high wear applications normally requiring hardwood lumber or High Pressure Laminate. Great for fine furniture tops, desk tops, bar tops, wainscotting, trim, stair treads, etc.
  • Savings. Installed cost per foot is much less than using solid lumber.
  • Environmentally friendly. Engineered wood is more environmentally-friendly than using solid hardwoods.
  • Stable. Plywood construction is less likely to warp and twist than solid material.
  • Available on all cores. Can be made on veneer core, MDF or particleboard cores. Formaldehyde free. Award-winning
  • PureBond® panel construction with zero added formaldehyde.
  • Compliant. When a NAUF veneer core or composite core is specified, DuraTop panels are CARB P2 compliant and may contribute to LEED® and other green building standards.
  • Responsible. FSC® certified available upon request.

DuraTop™ vs. Lumber. An easy choice.

Columbia Forest Products’ DuraTop Hardwood Panels are engineered to compete with solid lumber constructions. Fabricators will appreciate the durability of a thick “real” wood material that will reduce labor and material costs compared to solid wood applications.

DuraTop panels are ideal for fine furniture, desk tops, bar tops, wainscotting and trim. This new product will expand the versatility of 4 x 8’ hardwood panels to a new market that may not have considered plywood before.

DuraTop plywood is available today in the most popular hardwood species options of rotary peeled whole piece face Red Oak and Maple. All veneer comes from sustainably harvested domestic forests and panels are manufactured in our North American plywood facilities.

Using an engineered panel with a thick face is more environmentally-friendly than using solid lumber for construction because peeling extends the use of aesthetic species further than solid wood. Additionally, building with engineered panel products avoids the requirement of gluing up solid lumber components, saving time and money in construction. DuraTop hardwood plywood
