Every project undertaken by Jacobs Joinery is different - it's what bespoke joinery really means! Since each project is unique the materials used are different.
This section of the web site describes some of these materials, their useful properties and where Jacobs Joinery have emploed them in their bespoke joinery applications.
Corian is the brand name for a solid surface material created by DuPont. It is composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate (ATH)
Jacobs Joinery used Corian in the construction of fitted coffee counters at eat in/take away outlets for Moto Service Stations.
Plywood is a manufactured wood panel made from thin sheets of wood veneer. It is one of the most widely used wood products.
In woodworking, veneer refers to thin slices of wood, usually thinner than 3 mm (1/8 inch), that typically are glued onto core panels (typically, wood, particle board or medium-density fiberboard) to produce flat panels such as doors, tops and panels for cabinets, parquet floors and parts of furniture.
Accoya® wood is a high performance wood. Created from sustainably-sourced wood, Accoya® undergoes a proprietary, non-toxic acetylation process that permanently modifies the wood to the core.
MDF is an engineered wood-based sheet material made by bonding together wood fibres with a synthetic resin adhesive.
Medite Tricoya is made using a high performance resin which is also zero added formaldehyde, making the product not only exceeding EU E1 but also CARB2 compliant.
The flame retardant MDF panels used by Jacobs Joinery are panels that have been developed by Medite for use in situations where Euro Class B or Euro Class C flame retardant boards are required by pertinent building regulations.
Trespa plate is made by compressing impregnated paper or wood fibres and epoxy, phenolic or polypropylene resin at high pressure and high temperature. A special surface made with Electronic Beam Curing, a coating technique developed by Trespa, ensures durability and scratch resistance.
Jacobs Joinery use a range of adhesives, each being the most appropriate for the materials being bonded and the environment in which the finished object will be placed.
Forbo Flooring is a linoleum product which combines attractive design with great durability and has been available world wide for more than 100 years.
Jacobs Joinery use a range of different materials when manufacturing bespoke furniture and fittings - this includes timber, synthetic materials such as Corian and plywood. See our Projects Gallery.
This dynamic young company was established in February 1997. This was a direct result of our parent company, Jacobs Construction Ltd, finding that they had ever-increasing requirements for specialist joinery.
Jacobs Joinery started manufacturing in late February 1997 on behalf of Jacobs Construction but were soon being asked to provide quotations for the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke joinery, predominantly to commercial markets, mainly to architects drawings and specifications.
