Woods

Alder

A fine, straight grained wood species with a uniform color from light tan to reddish brown. Takes stain well and is a species that is easy to distress creating many design opportunities for the homeowner.

Cherry

A fine textured hardwood with a prominent figure and a beautiful, warm pink color. Cherry may have occassional natural features such as pecks, small pitch pockets and mineral streaks all of which contribute to the uniqueness of this species. Cherry ages gracefully, acquiring a rich patina that continues to darken over time further enhancing its beauty and warmth.

Maple

A strong, fine textured hardwood which has a subtle grain figure. The color tends to be a light, creamy tan. Maple is known as one of the heavier and denser woods available and is very sturdy. Maple has some naturally occuring features such as an occassional mineral streak, to the more spectacular birds-eye, burl, fiddleback or quilting.

Rift Sawn White Oak

Has a consistent wood grain structure with a very open grain. The overall color is tan but varies from light to medium tan to shades of gray. The straight grain pattern makes Rift Sawn White Oak ideal for use with contemporary designs.

Walnut

A highly desirable, finely grained hardwood with dark tan to brown heartwood and creamy white sapwood. Walnut generally has fairly straight grain but produces more types of figures than any other wood. It darkens with age and exposure to light though more slowly than cherry.

Paint

Plato is known for the quality and beauty of their painted finishes. Every coat is precisely applied over top grade hardwoods, hand-sanded between coats and oven-baked for a satin-smoth, furniture finish that will retain its beauty for years to come.

Specialty Materials

The frameless construction available through our Inovae line lends itself to a wide selection of materials that cannot be utilized with framed cabinetry. Thermofoils, acrylics and laminates along with newly developed man-made composite veneers are among the additional resources available to you with Inovae. Each offers unique attributes and design aesthetics that can make your project one of a kind.

Composites

Composite veneers are a man-made product produced from a solid block of dyed veneers typically made from a plentiful wood called obeche. Their consistency in grain and color makes them ideal for achieving a uniform appearance which is particularly important when “horizontal grain” is specified. Available in natural finish only.

Laminates

High pressure plastic laminate. This represents a small sampling of the materials available. Contact your local dealer for additional information.

Textured Melamines

Thermoset decorative pattern made of pressure bonded melamine.

Thermofoil
Thermofoil vacuum-formed around the shaped MDF core, resulting in a door that requires no edge banding and, on the face, has no sharp corners or edges.
(HG = High Gloss)

Acrylic
Flat laminated acrylic applied on MDF. It has a glass-like surface that is achieved by applying a layer of acrylic over the foil. It is an edgebanded door with matching or contrasting edging. (HG = High Gloss)
