The fastest way to let down any product – be it home or office furniture, composite doors, kitchen and bathroom cabinet designs, washroom cubicles, or even coffin design – is to make a poor match between your boards and the edge banding used with them. The overall quality of any piece is severely undermined if the colour, pattern, or texture of your edging doesn’t perfectly match that of your boards. Fortunately, this is a problem with a very simple fix: Cadre’s specialist colour match for edge banding service.
Here’s everything you need to know to ensure you always have the perfect bandings for your projects…
What Is Colour Match For Edge Banding?
Since the boards and edging used to finish them are sold separately, manufacturers often find themselves uncertain of which edge banding to pair with the board they have selected for their design.
While there may be times when, due to design reasons and preferences, the edging used will not match the board on purpose. For example, you want to add a metal edge to a wooden board, or a contrasting colour for a little added flair. However, the majority of the time our customers are looking for an banding that is the exact same colour, texture and design as their boards.
In order to achieve that you need a service that can tell you exactly which edge banding (or bandings – there are often more than one) will match the boards you’re using.
Why Precise Colour Matching Makes All The Difference…
Failing to find the right match for your boards can jeapardise the quality of your end product, and lead to a disappointing finish. For example, there are many boards that require black edge banding, and you might think simply selecting a band that’s black in colour is all that’s needed. But there are many different shades of black, ranging from jet, to licorice, smokey black and onyx.
Choosing the wrong shade can leave to a disjoined look, and may result in either your board or your edge appearing faded in comparison to the rest.
And that’s just the colour – there is also texture and pattern to consider!
