products are primarily manufactured from moulded plywood components,
manufacture of moulded plywood involve the use of layers of thin
wood veneers glued together, while formed to shape in moulds
under hydraulic pressure and cured using radio-frequency and
other heating methods. The process of moulding-in curves and
bends eliminates many joints needed in conventional furniture
assembly. In doing so, the strength of the finished product is
substantially increased. After curing, the components are cut
and drilled using the most modern machinery including a C.N.C
(Computer Numeric Controlled) machining centre to ensure maximum
joints are secured three-way : dowelled, glued and mechanically
fixed with machine screws into threaded metal cross dowels. In
cases where screw fixings into wood are considered inadequate
for show-wood seats or shells, use is made of rivets. A durable
finish is achieved by the use of a tough reaction-type lacquer,
coupled with multiple sanding stages, on all show-wood parts.
All steel frames, after a seven stage cleaning and preparation
process, are finished with baked epoxy powder coating. Chrome
plating is optional on certain ranges subject to minimum quantities.
wide selection of wood finishes are available, ranging form ‘blond’ to
exotic timbers to a variety of stained finishes. Choice of upholstery
fabrics is virtually unlimited and customers are welcome to supply
fabric on a C.M.T basis.
aesthetics and innovative design are cornerstones of the Woodlam
product range, strength and durability are considered to be of
paramount importance. The abundance of light-duty imported seating
(primarily suited to household use only) lacks the durability
which is built into Woodlam products and is essential for the
rigours of contract and office applications.
