Beautiful, easy to work and versatile, the wood has been exhaustively used for architects and interior designers for thousands of years, giving homes, offices and commercial areas a warm and beautiful effect.
With the increasing world populations and rising standard of living, environmental problems arise through the exploitation of forests and the industrial use of its products, causing an urgent demand for building materials that could replace the versatility of wood. The construction industry started to invest extensively on R&D and a wide variety of PVC-Wood finishes has been launched over the last decades as a substitute for wood in doorsets and frames besides wall cladding, ceilings and floors.
Introduced the early 1970’s, the PVC-Wood was at first a cheap solution for the high demand for wood substitutes, while the quality varied, architects and interior designers were not quite happy with the finish of the PVC-Wood. After years of improvements, today we can find many hygienic and sustainable solutions that imitate wood perfectly, saving money, time and, and naturally, the forests.
Because it is an impermeable material, the PVC-Wood has become an excellent solution for wet areas, such as washrooms and changing rooms.
Focus Washrooms offers a beautiful range of hygienic laminates including classic and contemporary woodgrain finishes, all designed to withstand everyday wear and tear.
