Edge Glued Panels (EGP) – are important component of high quality furniture. Lira’s edge glued panels have proved themselves well in this area because the company uses modern equipment and the latest production technology.
EGP are made of solid wood lamellas (planks or blocks) glued together with PVA glue, which provides maximum strength in the joints. Lamellas could be fully solid or finger jointed depending on your requirements.
By finger-jointing smaller planks into larger pieces and then gluing those into panels the existing defects like big knots, mineral insertion, discolorations and insect holes can be eliminated. The final product with its smooth joint tight surface and nice wood patterns is very stable and has a solid wood appearance.
EGP may be used for the manufacture of table and kitchen worktops, doors, work bench boards, shelf bottoms, chests and wardrobe cabinets etc.
Grade is determined by the board on both sides and is denoted by A/A, A/B, A/C, B/B, B/C, C/C (Face/Back)
Grade A: without knots and other imperfections;
Grade B: sound tight knots not exceeding 5 mm, no sap, good bright color, without defects;
Grade C: without selection on the image, tone and texture, minor defects (sound knots up to 1 1/2’’, sapwood, black not up to 1/2’’).
By the time the panels are ready for delivery, the moisture is 10 +/- 2%. This is the equilibrium moisture content of panels used under normal circumstances in environments with temperatures of 20°C and 55% humidity.
