Nordex specializes in the manufacture of decorative timber veneered doors and is one of the most respected suppliers of the same. We can supply doors both with natural imported and local Australian veneers and reconstituted veneers which we source from various Australian suppliers.
As we are equipped with a hot press we can press timber veneers on any of our flush MDF or blockboard core doors.
To finish of the veneered doors we normally edge them with matching solid timber or veneer edges.
Using a CNC router Nordex can easily provide the doors with cut outs for hardware (locks, pivot mechanism, flush-bolts, seals, grilles, etc) and viewing panels incl. factory glazing.
Nordex can also supply its timber veneered doors pre-finished. See Spray polishing.
Natural Timber Veneers: A thin layer of timber of uniform thickness formed by either slicing or rotary peeling, the most commonly produced patterns on doors are crown or quarter cut in a book-match.
Veneer is more cost effective and more environmentally friendly than using solid timber.

Reconstructed Veneers: These are sliced from a laminated timber block made from various wood species, dyed throughout and glued together under pressure in parallel configuration. Being made out of natural timber, it should be treated like any other veneer during the manufacturing process.
One of the perceived benefits of reconstructed veneers is the consistency in colour and grain.
Within block lots, there is generally acceptable consistency of colour with some subtle grain differences however due to batch dyeing there can be small colour variance from block to block.
As reconstructed veneers are man-made, they generally come in defined lengths. The veneers commonly available in Australia are 2500mm and 2800mm in length.
