Materials and textures of the melamine table top

What is an edge veneer?

What is an edge veneer?

An edge veneer is a thin side coating, which is glued to the narrow side of the table top. It covers the open particle board, which forms the basis of the melamine tabletop. For reasons of robustness and as a sign of high quality, our edgings have a thickness of 2 millimeters. When covering other pieces of furniture, such as cupboard doors or shelf walls, these are usually much thinner.

 Practical cable passage

Practical cable passage

Goodbye, tangled cables! Granted: A cable passage in a melamine tabletop certainly doesn't solve the problem of the amount of cables. But it does bundle together all the equipment, charging and lamp cables and ensures a tidy overall picture.

The cable outlet is available in matt black, matt silver and stainless steel versions - each with flexible black plastic bristles so that nothing slips through. All lids have a locking device so that the cable passage is fixed by a quarter turn. So nothing slips - even if the cables move.

Cleaning and care of the melamine table top

As with other furniture surfaces, the surface of the melamine table top can also be cleaned best with a damp cloth and, if necessary, gentle cleaning agents. Although the melamine resin surface is very durable and resistant to scratching, certain cleaning utensils should not come into contact with it. Scratchy sponges, pot cleaners, and comparable all-rounders certainly remove dirt faster and more effectively than a soft cloth. However, they also leave evident traces and attack the surface of the melamine table top.

The same applies to the cleaning of an edge veneer made of ABS plastic. If dirt has settled on a real wood edging, it can be removed with a damp cloth. Wood fibers of untreated real wood are formed after contact with water. We recommend very fine sandpaper and the careful regrinding of the dried edge veneer to obtain a smooth edge again. To permanently seal a real wood edging, we recommend the work surface oil from Biofarben. It contains natural oils and waxes, is transparent, and makes the table edge water-repellent and insensitive to stains.
