With regard to its technical performance, “BalanceBoard” behaves just like traditional engineered wood products, fulfilling the requirements and properties set out in DIN EN 312. The light, environmentally friendly material is available, as part of Pfleiderer’s new combined product range in the form of “DecoBoard Balance” in thicknesses of 16 / 18 / 19 / 22 / 25 / 28 / 38 mm, and in the form of an HPL flat bonded element, “Duropal Balance flat bonded element”, with a total thickness of 20.6 mm.
“BalanceBoard” makes a natural, sustainable contribution to the less resource-intensive use of wood as a raw material. And like wood, the biomass granules in “BalanceBoard” keep CO2 stored away as long as the panel is in use. The increased lightness also allows the CO2 emissions produced in transportation to be reduced.
Pfleiderer’s “BalanceBoard” engineered wood material has already been recognised with numerous awards for innovation and materials: These include the “iF material design award”, one of the most important design prizes worldwide, the “Design Plus Award” from Material Vision and the “Woody Award” from the German Timber Trade Federation (GD Holz).
