Pre-laminated boards were evolved to create furniture, modular units, flat pack furniture etc at a lower price point. When manufactured properly such furniture has potential to last many many years. However, with extreme cost cutting measures can result in very low quality products which have extremely poor life.
How we create high quality Pre-laminated board furniture-
1) Use branded boards - We use only Action TESA brand pre laminated boards or better boards like Greenply. It offers a ton of variety in finishes, super strong boards, defect free product. The boards are laminated with MICA and not paper or plastic. These are very very resistant to any surface abrasion and therefore you can use them carefree! Products like Mackenzie chest of drawers or Zich work desk comes to life with branded boards.
