Discover 5 Unique Implementations for Engineered Panel

Engineered panels can be used in a variety of different applications, as they are extremely versatile when it comes to custom projects. Below are 5 separate examples.

1. Ready-to-Assemble Kitchens​

A contractor out of San Francisco was remodeling older brownstone buildings, and all the kitchen paneling had to be transported up tiny, rickety cargo elevators. To overcome this hurdle, the contractor worked with our Spectrum Division to create ready-to-assemble kitchens which were able to be reconstructed on site. 

2. A Unique Closet Installation Project

Another general contractor was installing new closet components on a military base in San Diego, California. For security purposes, he was not allowed to leave anything on the military base overnight. To solve this issue, the Spectrum Division created pallets for the contractor to take on the base each day, containing only the materials needed for one day’s work.

3. Components for Cabinet Shops

Medium-sized cabinet shops can get a great deal of value from outsourcing their component work since it can save them the expense of hiring additional workers or investing in their own equipment. By utilizing the componentry capabilities of the Spectrum Division, cabinet shops can save money on materials and freight due to the division's convenient access to custom sizes of panels.

4. Treadmill Decks

To meet the performance demands of this specific treadmill application, a specialized industrial film is used to create a durable, slick panel for the belt to slide across. These decks are specifically engineered to handle high wear and high impact—if you’ve ever run on a treadmill at a gym, there’s about an 80% chance the deck was made at our Spectrum plant in White City, Oregon.

5. Strong, Lightweight SpectraCore

Melamine and very high-end veneers benefit from a smooth laminating surface. SpectraCore is an engineered veneer core ideal for this application due to its void-free inner plies combined with smooth MDF crossbands. SpectraCore is lighter and stronger than particle board or MDF. For that reason, it’s frequently used in high-end cabinets as well as high-rise buildings to avoid increased weight.

If you have a custom project, don’t hesitate to reach out and ask for a sample of our engineered panel, or get in contact with your sales representative.
