Panel Board Furniture

Panel board Furniture made out of MDF, Particle Board or Ply wood.

What is MDF: MDF (Medium Density Fibre board) is an engineered wood product composed of fine wood fibres (Pulp) combined with a synthetic resin or other bonding system & joined together under heat & pressure to form panels. It’s less dense as compared to HDF(High Density Fibre board).

What is Particle board? Particle board or Chip board is a board made from graded wood chips / saw dust / wood particles bonded together with an adhesive under great pressure & heat. The constituents are similar to MDF but with a low density.

What is Plywood: Plywood is a type of engineered wood made from thin sheets of wood, called plies or wood veneers. The layers are glued together, each with its grain at right angles for greater strength.

Care for Panel wood Furniture:

Do's

  • Cleaning and dusting your furniture on a regular basis will help to extend the life of the product. Dusting is the best done with mildly damp cotton cloth. Before dusting,lightly moisten the cloth with mild non-alkaline soap and water. A dry cloth can leave hairline scratches on the finish. However for Decorative paper lamination uses a soft dry cloth. Ensure that No water is left in the grooves and edges after cleaning as this may result in the beginning of deterioration of the panel furniture, which ultimately results in swelling and weakening of the structure.
  • Use coaster/mats/tablecloth when keeping hot dishes on any bed sides/coffee table/dining table.
  • Clean spills immediately, preferably by blotting with a soft and dry cloth/sponge.

Dont's

  • Avoid contact of solvent ,alcohol, nail polish and thinner with furniture surfaces.

  • Do not allow sharp objects to come in the contact with the furniture’s surfaces.
  • Prevent contact with water and corrosive substances as they may damage part of product.
  • Avoid placing furniture in the direct sunlight, hot conditions (near fireplaces,heaters,radiators and damp condition(area like basements,attic ,garages and area prone to leakage, seepage) to prevent deterioration in the furniture quality.
  • Avoid direct contact of furniture from your building’wall , floor if the building is not treated for termite. Infestation might get in to furniture.
  • Avoid using abrasive cleaning agents like nitro based thinners, acetone, Thinner as these can damage the surface.
  • While mopping/dusting the floor ,avoid contact of the dust with headboard/footboard base ,wardrobe base,side table base etc as prolonged contact may result in fading the finish/colour.
  • Prevent kids from standing / jumping on the lid of the under-storage and on the wardrobe shelves. It may hurt them as well as damage the panel.
  • Dropping or other impact of pointed objects on the panels will damage / chip-off the panel surface.
  • We recommend opening and closing the doors, drawers and lids gently. When open, the angle of the door should not push beyond its body level i.e. 90 degrees for better functionality of hinges.
