Smith & Fong Introduces 3-D Contemporary Wall Panel System Made from Reclaimed Palm Wood
Smith & Fong Co., manufacturer of Durapalm palm architectural plywood and flooring products, today announced the introduction of DecoPalm, a line of premium, contemporary, three-dimensional wall paneling products manufactured from reclaimed palm wood, according to company founder Dan Smith.
“DecoPalm delivers a unique, multi-textural surface,” Smith said. “Its rustic but modern lines contrast well with contemporary materials like steel, glass and concrete.”
Palm offers a broad range of tones and grains that energize a space like no other natural material, Smith said. It provides a great look and feel for a wide range of interior environments from hospitality and retail to educational and institutional.
Manufactured entirely of reclaimed palm lumber, DecoPalm panels are made with no added formaldehyde and comply with California Section 01350 VOC emissions standards, a more rigorous protocol than CARB II. Offered in dimensions of ¾” x 6” x 48”, the panels interlock seamlessly to create a monolithic wall or ceiling surface. The use of DecoPalm panels can contribute to multiple USGBC LEED® V4 Credits.
