Veneered Chipboard is widely used for self assembly or flat pack furniture, worktops,
wall linings and partitions. High-density chipboard sheets are often used as a basis
for the carcasses of kitchen furniture cabinets, worktops, and flooring - this is
hardwearing, rigid and heavy.
Other grades available are standard, flame retardant, flooring, and moisture-resistant.
Chipboard is normally available in 2440 x 1220 sheets or in ft that is also known
as an 8x4 board. You may want to buy in smaller sheets for ease of use or transportation.
Ask your supplier to cut to size. Finished veneered sheets are available in smaller
sheets so that the four decorated edges do not need to be cut. Thicknesses generally
range from 12 to 25 mm.
