EGGER Feelwood: Looking good has never felt this good

Feelwood:
Looking good has never felt this good

Surfaces
with an exceptionally authentic feel.

Feelwood is a new highlight for
surfaces: The textures reproduce the look, feel and aesthetic qualities of wood
in an exceptional way. Architects and fabricators obtain even more quality
applications for their customers, and these can be barely told apart from real
wood – except when it comes to the price.

EGGER
Feelwood looks and feels very close to the original, but is more cost-efficient
than real wood. The textures represent a revolutionary development in the area
of wood-based materials. It is synchronised with the decor image and provides
wood reproductions with even more naturalness and authenticity. Used on either
side of the EGGER coreboard, the surfaces can barely be told apart from veneer
and solid wood. However, as compared to real wood, the reproductions have the
advantage of being more durable, easier to care for, and being more lightfast.
Objects placed on the surface do not damage it at all. Feelwood is available on
chipboard and MDF boards, on Eurolight Lightweight Boards, worktops, compact
laminate, and laminate. Matching edging, specially developed end-grain edging,
and the new three-layer edging complete the authentic solid wood appearance.

Real wood
character with haptic effects

The EGGER Decorative Collection
2017-2019 includes a total of six Feelwood surfaces. Three of them were
developed especially for the collection. The latest variant of
synchronised pore surfaces is ST38
Feelwood Pinegrain
. It has the texture of a deep-brushed conifer and works
well on the decor family of the Mountain Larch. The ST37 Feelwood Rift has been developed for the three decors of the
Halifax Oak. It shows a lively oak texture marked by cracks and knots. The
surface of the ST36 Feelwood Brushed
is deeply brushed. With its high-quality and deep texture, it gives a large
variety of wood types a very authentic feel. ST33 Feelwood Crafted displays an interplay of matt and slightly
glossy areas. The matt and softly brushed pore gives it a beautiful depth
effect. The ST29 Feelwood Ambiance
underlines with its texture, synchronised with the decor image of the Cape Elm,
the large florets. The haptic effect is strengthened by the soft recesses. ST28 Feelwood Nature underlines the
sandblasted character of the Gladstone Oak. This texture marks the start of the
Feelwood success story and has already been used in numerous projects.

Striking wood decors in XL format

To emphasise the authenticity of the
wood reproductions with Feelwood surfaces, the decor family of Halifax Oak has
been expanded to include ST37 Feelwood Rift, Tossini Elm with ST33 Feelwood
Crafted, Cape Elm with ST29 Feelwood Ambiance, and Attic Wood with ST36
Feelwood Brushed in XL format. In the case of traditional decor images, the
details are repeated six to eight times on a half-format. For particularly
natural looking wood with striking knots and cracks, EGGER expands the decor
format across the whole width. In this way, details only repeat twice on a
half-format. Applications achieve even more naturalness and authenticity and
are even closer to the real material.
