US Cabinet Depot Cabinet Construction
Do any of the cabinets contain any particleboard?
Our cabinet boxes are constructed using solid Birch hardwoods and furniture grade plywood.There is no particleboard contained in our cabinetry box. Our plywood is also CARB2 compliant for standard US restrictions formaldehyde emissions. Painted doors will utilize high quality HDF for longer life and to reduce the cracking that normally happens with hardwood joints overtime.
HDF Doors unless otherwise stated. HDF : Hardboard, also called high-density fiberboard (HDF), is a type of fiberboard, which is an engineered wood product. It is similar to particle board and medium-density fiberboard, but is denser and much stronger and harder because it is made out of exploded wood fibers that have been highly compressed. It is more expensive to produce and it differs from particle board in that the bonding of the wood fibers requires no additional materials. Unlike particle board, it will not split or crack.
