Market leading equipment
Nesting CNC Router
Our flat bed CNC machine makes quick work of high volume production runs. The nesting software makes the best use of materials and the 4.5 axis cutting means we can cut just about anything!
Vertical CNC Router
For drilling, trimming and grooving, our vertical CNC Processing center is extremely efficient, and is particularly useful for end boring panels that have been cut on the flat bed CNC.
Edgebanding is a breeze with our newly-installed Homag machine. It glues, edges, snips and trims all in one pass at 14m/min, so we can get through large volume production runs quickly and with minimal post-processing.
We’ll bring your projects to life
Using CNC techniques, we can create beautiful and unique fretwork panel designs in a range of materials.
Our fretwork panels can be used for a range of purposes. In restaurants, cafes and bars, decorative screens can be used as dividers between seating areas, and on the front of counters and walls as décor. In large offices we have created sets of feature walls using designs cut from foamed PVC. A chain of hotels commissioned finely detailed laser-cut acrylic panels to be framed and mounted behind glass as artwork.
Another application of fretwork is to create beautiful mirrored design wardrobe doors for a truly stunning bedroom.
We have a range of stock designs, but our artwork team is always up for a challenge, and we are happy to create a bespoke fretwork pattern for you based on your own sketch or image. Depending on the purpose of your screen, we can offer a range of material options and thicknesses, so give us a call to talk through your requirements today!
Take advantage of our spraying and finishing service to have your panels sanded and painted to your specifications.
