What’re the key points in selecting the materials of office furniture?
When customizing office furniture, the first priority is choosing the compactness of sheet materials. When purchasing sheet materials, find the part having not been sealed to see its sheet materials. As we all know that wood is a very important basic material in furniture making and decoration. The quality of sheet materials will directly impact the service life of our furniture. Generally, we may hear some words we are familiar with, such as solid wood, particle board and density board when purchasing plate furniture. Is there anything that we need to take special consideration about these wood and sheet materials?
Solid wood board, just as its name implies, refers to the wood board made of a complete wood. Such boards are solid and durable with natural grain, and they’re the best choice of decoration. But due to its high cost and high requirements for construction process, it is actually not often used in the design of office space. Set solid wood furniture as an example. Some are made of solid wood from inside out; but some only have a thin solid wood board on the surface and are made of other woods inside, and the office furniture manufacturers will also say these are solid wood furniture. Then, some customers will get furniture having only solid wood on the surface with the cost of solid wood furniture from inside out. But generally speaking, reputable office furniture sellers will tell the real conditions to customers and won’t cheat customers.
Chipboard, also called particle board, is a type of thin board compacted with wood crushed aggregates as main ingredient, adding glue and additives. Such board presents interlaced particles inside, so that it enjoys a good nail-holding ability and strong lateral bearing capacity. Now, some sellers have self-improved a new type of particle board, which not only improves its quality, but also increases its environmental protection. Thus, buyers shouldn’t focus on the price only. Quality and use life of the original particle board are limited, and sellers generally don’t pay much attention to its environment protection, and its formaldehyde content is extremely high. Thus, if you want to choose particle board for decoration, please choose the sellers of high quality and the brands having made self-improvement with environmental certification. And please don’t pay attention to its low price only.
Density board, also called fiber board, is a type of artificial board made with wood fiber or other vegetable fiber as ingredients, adding urea resin or other applicable adhesives. According to the density, such boards can be divided into high-density board, medium-density board and low-density board. As density board is soft and impact-resistant, it is easy to be reprocessed. Such board is more expensive than particle board, but it enjoys a better quality and higher environmental index, so that it can be the first choice of wardrobe customization. It is known that, some sellers use medium-density board to make the full board to ensure seamless at the wide side panel, and it is of fine workmanship.
Finally: As to the customization of office furniture, there are lots of factors to be considered. When you’re purchasing office furniture, please consult and confirm with the salespersons. Don’t think the most expensive is the best; make sure about your consumption budget; select the most cost-efficient products; and make some survey and research before purchase. In this way, you may take the most suitable office furniture back to your office.
