CaberMDF – the trade’s choice for indoor joinery

CaberMDF – the trade’s choice for indoor joinery

CaberMDF Trade and CaberMDF Trade MR, from the West Fraser range, are lightweight, medium density fibreboard panels which have been developed for applications where the end design is important, such as for shop-fitting and caravan manufacture – the Trade MR (moisture resistant) version being ideal for areas subject to intermittent damp or humid conditions, such as in kitchens and shower rooms.

Lightweight, both board types are easy to handle, cut or machine; while when drilled or routed the finish is clean and sharp as the material does not splinter or chip, thanks to its high-quality fibres and internal bond strength.  Both panel types are suitable for light furniture making, such as wardrobes, shelving and panelling, while the smooth surface to the panels is also ideal for painting or even grain printing.

Manufactured at the UK’s premier site for MDF production, which features the very latest in design, development and resin technology, the 1220mm wide Trade and Trade MR boards are available in lengths of 2440 and 3050mm; as well as thicknesses of 12, 15, 18, 22 and 25mm.

Being precision-made in the UK means less waste onsite and the associated costs of disposal to landfill, plus lower transportation charges.  As well as guaranteeing a more secure supply in a currently challenging global market, specialist manufacturers, fit-out contractors or other customers can specify West Fraser’s well proven MDF options with total confidence.  

In addition, the UK or European grown timber used to make the boards is FSC® (C012533) certified, while CaberMDF Trade and Trade MR boards conform to European E1 emission standard, comply with BS EN 622: Parts 1 and 5, and carry the CE mark.

West Fraser’s sustainably managed operations from forest to factory gate contribute to CaberMDF’s manufacture being a net carbon negative process, and therefore another reason for its wide specification across the UK, as the construction industry tries to reduce its environmental impact.
